UPDATE: A couple people have been asking for the game for their site - if anyone else wants it, please simply send me a PM and i'll send you a thumbnail of the size that you need, plus the .SWF.



Hi Newgrounds!

This is my third game (I think - who's keeping track anyways...). I'd have to say this is my best one yet.

This rhythm game has been helped IMMENSELY by the newgrounds community.

I actually remember posting in the audio forum a couple months back asking if anyone could help me out by letting me use their songs, and I got a lot of helpful, positive replies - so thanks NG, and a big thank you to all the music artists that allowed me to use their songs (check out the list to your left)!

Thank you to nocturnalhaunt.com - the site's owner is very good at graphics, and helped me with the game's reskin (the game originally looked really bad!).

This is also my first self-sponsored game (my last one got sponsored by arcade reign), in order to boost the launch of my new flash game portal (wish me luck!) - http://www.littlemonsterg ames.com.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term 'sponsoring', it means a company pays you to put their branding/logos in your game, in order to gain publicity and traffic to their website.

So I hope you enjoy the game - I'll read every comment, so please leave one :)


Edit: Newgrounds is only letting me credit up to eleven songs, so I've just credited 1 song per artist to be fair (there's nine artists, but over twenty songs). The full list of used songs can be found in-game (click on 'credits'). Thanks again music artists!


Edit: Haha, sorry guys! I accidentally uploaded a version without a preloader! I hope that didn't annoy you too much with a file that big :)

All fixed now though!




I'm a massive fan of rhythm games, so I know what makes a good one and what makes one fail.
For starters, the timing of the key presses only vaguely related to the actual song, and the same went for the note placement as well. If you don't get these right, then it's not a rhythm game, it's a very long QTE.
Secondly, I couldn't see what was going on half the time. My screen was flooded with 'PERFECT' and 'x6!!' and, inevitably 'MULTIPLIER LOST'. The lighting near the note bar didn't help either, especially seeing as it's the same colour as the notes i'm supposed to hit.
Lastly, the huds were too far away from the action to actually be any use, and they're too like the background. The multiplier indicator was ok, but the rest I couldn't see without failing the song.
I kind of like this game, it's better than some of the crap you get on newgrounds, and the ability to upload some of your songs was very good, even if it didn't recognize some of my music. but it's not much new, and you could have done so much more with it.
3/5 6/10

Thsi is a great rhythm game, and I love the option to upload your own songs, gives me a chance to play a rhythm game to my own music at last! The only compalint that I have is the control scheme. You should have an option to let people choose their own keys to hit. Other than that, great work!

This game blew me away. Its beautifully made(I disregard the background), it has varying notes, and the custom play gave it it's ten. Also, for those who are having a hard time on a new skill level, I recommend starting of with ChipBare as the beats will help you understand and follow the rhythm speed.

I'd say that this is just about better than those popular Dance Dance Revolution games (this is only my opinion)!

Very Proffesional

The Arcade Mode was great and the concept of loading your own song made this game unique. The only particularly diffucult aspect was those "Up/Down" combos. It's probably my skill level. Otherwise, great game!
