Help, I can't get past the title it just says start game and I can't do anything with my mouse or keyboard!

NVM I was just being dumb.

the music isn't playing for me on the browser, and I can't download it bc I have a Mac :(

good game

this game is so fun lol. can't wait for revita!

Played for about a half-hour and found this game to be pretty fun and addictive. It is very cute and the music is very catchy and nostalgic. As long as the music keeps going, I'm motivated to keep going as far as I can.

I'd love to see some features:

-A one button mode (you press one button for all the notes)

-A mode without slowdown and speed-up (to keep the flow)

-An easier way to add custom tracks, maybe an option in the menu

Other than that, a question: For custom tracks, do i only have to write the track's name and BPM in their respective files or do i have to put the audio file somewhere?


-Pira :)

I would love those features in the game! But I'm pretty sure they have custom tracks in the download version.

Very juicy game!!!

the game is good, but i don't get how to add custom songs

wonderful chiptone!

Can't input a name. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or the game is broken.

I am doing something wrong, just move down with the down arrow key. A prompt would be nice.

not the only one

I'm gonna be honest

The game's ok. It has alot of issues holding it back, though.

The automatic generation for music to let it go on endlessly isn't the best at making it feel on-beat. The slow down/speed up mechanic is game-ending at the worst of times due to the difference in beat speed--- distracting at best. It ruins the flow of the song and comes out of nowhere, not like there's much of a rhyme or a reason for the beat placement.

The control scheme is awful-feeling to me, that being the arrow keys--- And no way the rebind the controls. I understand alot of people are comfortable with using the arrow keys, but... I feel like being able to customize the inputs would add alot of comfort to the game.

There can be better than this game, but there's definitely worse rhythm games. This has alot of potential, if it's worked on.

can't get past the input name screen

Press the down arrow to select the confirm name buttton, then press the space bar.

Button prompts do not match well with music. Also, the "hold" notes look too similar to the regular notes and I missed a bunch before I even realized what I was doing wrong. Please fix these issues!

i downloaded the game but when i try to run it windows says that, Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk. does anyone know the solution to this

Jus run it

i love this game

i love the game but i need help with custom sadly i wont play the game untill i get help

Visually appealing, really thought it was going to be great but the gameplay feels odd.


Looks at 100, but the rhythm with the music is loosely connected, just press the arrow buttons when the icons are suitable

Yea. feels like the buttons to press are basicly randomly generated to somewhat fit the song's BPM and nothing else. The idea is good but i dont think this kind of execution can work as well as they want it to.

Very awesome, but lacks content. Still cool!

i love this game :D

I Love this game but i need a little bit of help putting custom songs on help would be great


i've followed all the instructions (made sure the song i'm adding is in .wav format and copying it to the game folder, noted down its name and bpm in the game folder in Appdata/Local) but it's not showing up!

You did a great job with this game, it looks and sounds great. I had a lot of fun playing!


Really cool game, in particular i liked the graphics of the game, though I also initially dealt with the "poking" method, but also soon I started the game.

After playing for a while, I thought that in the game at the moment you can click on the "bits", after I saw the "bits" of a larger size. Using a certain number of lives, I realized that you need to press a certain arrow on the keyboard. But it was very fun to learn it myself :)

Also useful tips for novice players:

  • Start the game with a space
  • Entering a name using the keyboard
  • Switching to the menu using the arrows
    If you want to do something using the keyboard, keep the rule of arrows, space, and Escape keys in your head.

And let music come with you!


I hate my computer for not run this in a good fps, but nice job, the art is just beautiful


This game is great. The amount of polish it has is insane. Great job Ben, just let's hope that next ldjam game remake won't happen right after this one :X 

The game page is super nice, great job!

Hi! I've only played the demo but I like the game a lot! That said I have a few concerns...

-The visual polish is great (personal preference but a majority blue UI kind of makes the colourful characters feel flat... thought not an issue I think would be shared by many) , but whenever a slider pops up and I'm in the zone I kind of miss it a lot of the time because it is kind of just lighter blue on blue.

-The music is amazing but the speeding and slowing mechanic is kind of jarring for me? I'm not sure if it's preference but when the meter fills up and the music slows down I tend to miss the next note or so because it messes my timing, same for when it speeds back up again, maybe if it were a toggle or something it'd be ok?

-While I understand the levels are procedurally generated a lot of the beats feel very random? It doesn't quite play like a rhythm game in that I can tap to the beat (which does work to some extent) but more like me watching the bar and guessing when I should tap it.

-This last one could be completely unfounded if you can change settings in the paid game but cramping the buttons to only the arrow keys feels kind of clunky. Not only am I forced to fit all my fingers in one area (considering I'm playing it with 2 hands) but also it actively encourages one handed play, which may work for some people but coming from other rhythm games I find being able to divide my attention over the keyboard more comfortable and easier.

With that said I see a lot of potential in the game! I'm not a game designer so I don't know these mechanics all the way through, but I would love to see where this can go next!


Great work man, the level of polish is incredible :D

Thanks for your help in development! Without your help, I would have probably canceled it somewhere inbetween. xD
