Rainbow Rhapsody

A few weeks ago, I said to myself, "There aren't enough rhythm games on Newgrounds." So I taught myself how to make one, and now I can tell you firsthand that diving into complicated programming can produce many wonderful headaches!

After scanning the Newgrounds Audio Portal for many hours a day (which can actually be quite fun), I compiled seven different songs and synced them together in a rhythm game. It's pretty much just like Guitar Hero or DDR--you press a key when a note hits it, and in this case, there are four keys-- Z, X, C, and V. When a red note hits the red Z key, press Z. When a yellow note hits the yellow X key, press X, and so on.

The game doesn't really have anything to do with rainbows, except for the fact that the notes are the simple four-color rainbow (red-yellow-green-blue). I just named the game "Rainbow Rhapsody" because it sounded a lot better than "Rhythm Game."

I'm not changing the vertical layout >:(

Remember to look at the Options menu to change the quality and toggle the background's movement to lower the lag a bit, and if that doesn't help, try downloading the game.

Song progress is automatically saved to your computer.

And with all that said, I hope you enjoy the game!


I absolutely love your game, but is there a way of using a controller? The keyboard controls are a real hassle!

Cool. I thought the timing was good, I was able to get through the last song with a gold trophy while tapping really loudly to see if the notes were on beat (xD). It was fun to play, and the song choices were cool.

The game is very possible, just hard to get used to.

This game is impossible, the notes were off even though I pressed it at the right time and at the right key, I liked the songs but.. can you remake this game? My keyboard is working fine.

JonBro responds:

I have no plans to remake it, I'd rather work on better things

Its a really good game, but there are some glitches. I suggest making a sequel with more songs i gold trophied every song :D
