I haven't played it yet, but I'm entirely convinced it's a great game, both the concept and the execution. The tunes are good too.

Really kick ass, nice tuto, but seems a little bit too difficult for me

The keyboard is a good guitar!

I've never played this type of game before, and I found out that I suck immensly at it, but it was still so much fun, I was laughing my ass off while trying to keep up with all those colorful blips, missing horribly and being awarded with awful sounds.
However, when playing on easy I actually managed to stay in synch for like 5 seconds, and it actually felt like I was playing the music, cool!

Execution is flawless, verdict can be nothing but a thumb up.

Anybody else experiencing some sort of possible bug in the Windows version?

I'm not the worlds best player of these kinds of games, but i've tried all three songs, tried remapping the keys, and yet i have not gotten one single point on easy mode, and i just can't believe my timing is *that* bad. :/

python :D, but this game rulez big time!

px: use the PICK (return) once you have your fingers on the frets (F1...F5).

Ska / vamecum: Let's pretend my problem was related to the A/V-timing issue I read about on http://louhi.kempele.fi/~skyostil/uv/fretsonfire and not me being to lame to understand how to play the game. :)

Great idea, but well... you suck. Go sell your keyboard ;)

excellent fun
rulez added on the 2006-08-11 19:53:31 by pdx pdx
nitro2k01: and guitar hero is just a guitarfreaks ripoff, if anything this is more original than guitar hero since they came up with using the keyboard as a guitar instead of just copying the exact same controller and adding two extra buttons

haven't played it myself but thumbs up for the funny tutorial that was shown during the compo

Well, excuse me then. I don't play game, so usually I don't know what you are supposed to know about games.
added on the 2006-08-11 21:34:25 by nitro2k01 nitro2k01
visuals are too cheap and the idea is fully copied. fun to play anyway.
added on the 2006-08-11 22:40:20 by annieeee annieeee
bullshit! It's not even a game. You don't play by pressing the keys, the track just plays and you press the keys in synch. That takes me back to the Dragon's Lair days, but at least they had interesting visuals and a death sequence if you failed.

I just noticed this has been downloaded from the sourceforge site over 400000 times this year alone. That's over 100000 downloads each month on average.

Congrats Unreal Voodoo!

hey, wait...
we´re not doing all these efforts for nothing ;)
i mean: how is the average young gamer getting caught/driven into scene better than with releases like this one ?
and we all agree on we could need even more fresh blood in the scene, so it wont die at all, dont we ?
in my opinion this is rather crummy implementation of the genre
