8/8/16 - Alright fixed! Thanks to Tom Fulp and Psycho Goldfish for such a quick response!

7/8/16 - Holy wow its been a long time. In the past two years Flash did some changes that meant the old version stopped loading songs. I'm gonna update this one soon to make it work here, in the meantime there's a working version at rhythmdr.com!!

5/4/14 - Updated with new BOSS LEVEL! Also: Press CapsLock during a level to toggle an experimental 2-player version. P2 uses the L key. It might make some of the multi-row levels easier ;) (And also, hallelujah Chrome has been updated so there aren't latency problems any more! At least on Windows, dunno about Mac.) Thanks again for the reviews and feedback, it is really nice that a lot of you are enjoying the game.

25/3/14 - GO TO rhythmdr.com FOR NEWER VERSION. I WILL UPDATE THIS ONE WITH BOSS LEVEL AND TWO-PLAYER DROP-IN MODE SOON! (in the next week if possible!!)

10/2/14 - Thank you so much for the reviews and suggestions, we always read each one, and they're what keeps us going!

11/1/13 - Hit window has been tightened up a bit following more playtesting.

10/1/13 - Feedback dialogue upon failing a level is now skippable! Thanks to the suggestions in the comments, and the NG team for featuring the game.

Edit: Thank you for all the kind words people :) We're trying hard to get this game sponsored so we can dole out the full version. So if you liked it, rating this game on the sidebar (even multiple times!) to the left would be very charitable of you and help increase the game's visibility in this Flash jungle. The review scores don't count towards the rating, so if you wrote a review it would doubly help if you rated on the sidebar too. WE LOVE YOU!

Oh, unlocking the secret level involves perfecting a particularly hard level. It's.. for your own good.


Browser: Anything but Chrome (update: Should now work on Chrome if it's the latest version of Chrome! Right click the game and check the version of the Chrome Flash is at least 12.0!)
Flash Player: 11.4 or above

IF YOU INSIST ON USING (an old) CHROME: The Chrome problem is not specific to this game, but affects all games. It's just this game requires a degree of accuracy so high that the tiny lag caused by Chrome's inbuilt Flash Player is enough to throw the timing off. YOU CAN MAKE IT WORK IN CHROME by going to chrome://plugins and disabling all plugins with 'PepperFlash' in the location. This will make it use the normal Flash player like the other browsers, if you have it installed.

IF YOU ARE USING LINUX: The latest Flash version for you is 11.2 which unfortunately doesn't include the amazing sound latency update. The game should still be playable, the only difference being that the audiophiles will notice a 0.1s latency between pressing a key and hearing its sound effect. However if you're used to playing flash games on 11.2 and have never noticed this then it shouldn't affect you! Just press enter at the warning.

Rhythm Doctor is a tough ONE-BUTTON rhythm game heavily inspired by Rhythm Heaven!

For those who played Rhythm Heaven, the defining feature of the series is the extremely strict margin of error, compared to any other music game out there. This means many people even realise their rhythm is a little off until they play Rhythm Heaven. My game seeks to emulate that feeling :)

Many. many hours have been spent making the engine accurate. After extensive testing we found a calibration that worked for all browsers except Chrome, which lags due to it using PepperFlash. Enjoy!


game is amazingly fun! great response, awesome music and great design. I would pay for this if it was constanly updated with new songs and wut not, maybe multiplayer, stuff like that.

Over all, 10 across the board! Love It!


That game is awsome and i loved it! I can't wait forthe full verson to gome out! But which level i must perfet to unlock the secret level?

Very nice gfx and concept but does get lagy so its pretty hard to play.

Awesome! The rhythm-beats were a lot of fun! The only problem that I encountered with this game was that sometimes it would glitch to "skip-a-beat" I don't know why it does that, but that's the only major problem that I saw with this game. Otherwise it's pretty-good!

Fun game. It would be nice if I didn't have to watch the tutorial every time I go back to a level though. It takes the fun out of trying to get perfect scores on the earlier levels when you fail by one beat and still have to watch the basics on how to play ><

N to skip tutorial! If you missed the little prompt - thanks though, I'll make it more obvious next time.
