Use your arrow keys to dodge Mz. Ruby's voodoo blasts in time with her dance.
Mash the space bar when you have an opening to gain points rapidly.
If your groove is solid enough, you'll stop Mz. Ruby from resurrecting Clockwerk.
If your timing is sloppy, Clockwerk will come back.

High score unlockables, secret mode, and a reward for beating secret mode.

Very repetitive, no clear end goal, and some what frustratingly slow. I like the backstory, and the design is beautiful, and the music is nice, but after the first "round" of arrows where you mash space the music cuts out and you're left in uncomfortable silence with slow moving arrows. It's a nice game, but it needs some work..

Thanks for the feedback.

The goal is just to finish the song, or maybe get through the secret mode. If you're a fan of Sly Cooper, and you've played the Mz. Ruby boss fight, you probably know the deal. I'm a musician first, so I was really just going for a cool way to interact with the music.

Hmmm. Music shouldn't cut out, never did for any of my tests on other machines. Haven't had anyone else say anything about music cutting out. Thanks for letting me know about a potential bug though.

Sounds like your problems has to do with experiencing bugs, and not getting to even see the project the way it was intended. It's unfortunate your experienced was sour'd by that. If you want, I'm also hosting the game on Itchio too. You can try the game there if you want, and it might work better for you. But I actually found that, although lacking true fullscreen support, it was more stable on newgrounds. Either way, I apologize that you got a disappointing playthrough. Maybe next time. Thanks for playing.
