Hi everyone! This is our entry for the Game Jam #4! Our handicap was to make a game with only using arrow keys, so, you will only be able to use arrow keys :)
In this game you are a metalhead (you can choose to be a woman or a man in the playlist) and you have to keep headbanging as the rhythm asks you to do. The multiplier will become bigger each time you play a note; you will gain more points if the note is more centered than down than if you keep pressing the arrow keys all the time. After you finish, each song has his own highscore table, so you can submit your score for that song!
Don't get mad if a lot of arrows come down, try to make circles and catch as many as you can doesn't matter if you do something wrong, you just will win a bit less of points.

Hope you have fun with it!

Total songs: 8 + 1 Tutorial
Characters: 1 Male and 1 Female
Headbangs: Infinite

Why don't you read the description

People read the description, it's suposed to use only the arrow keys!

It's not anything new in the gameplay but I love being a MetalHead and it was cool that you could choose your gender, I understand it was made in 3 days, so, it's a good effort, not the best, not the worse!

I love being a metalhead, so don't go down!

Gives that "newgrounds is falling" impression

"Maybe reading description you will see how wrong you are"

What an arrogant author, lol!

No. The review was correct. This is a poor submission. The animation quality is reminiscent of the 90's before people understood how to do smooth animation. There is no visual feedback when you hit a note correctly which just reeks of artistic oversight.

I can't criticize you for your terrible taste in music so don't think that's why I rated this low. Though your music taste is terrible so yeah..

A key-mashing rhythm game has no place anywhere. That's not what rhythm genre is about at all.

There wasn't one thing I liked about this game.

MonoFlauta responds:

first, two accounts? how sad. Also, I have answered 91 reviews with this one in wich 50% of people doesnt read the description, you didn't again because the criticize you are making is because you didnt read.
And if you don't like this music, go and cry with justin bieber

I loved the music, I'm a huge Lashmush fan so I was excited to see Chorus Diaboli, but slightly disappointed you did'nt use the whole song, although I understand why you would only use part. But we have all played too many "press arrow key at the right time" games, it was fun for a bit but got old fast. I also thought it was cool you had a gender choice, that's a nice feature to have even if I did play as the dude.

Metal forever. \m/

MonoFlauta responds:

but this one is about headbang, have you played one already about htat?


Rated 3 / 5 stars


layout was good, presentation was good. Not that really long of a game, animations of the "headbanger" could be smoother. I got this idea for you.. why not make a headbanger minigame platformer could be awesome if you do it correctly. overall this game doesn't really have much of life into it so people could go back and play it again, but nice try though

MonoFlauta responds:

it was made in 72 hours, take care about that please
