This game was made in 72 Hours for Ludum Dare #34.

In the first phase, you must avoid the waves of dots flying your way.

In the following three phases (line, triangle, and square respectively), you must turn yourself to face the incoming bars of matching color.

Don't like royalty free music? You can mute it and pick your own to play along to! Pick your Beats Per Minute (60 to 240), and the length of your song (0:59 to 10:00), for if you feel like taking it slow or giving yourself Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

The game defaults to 120 Beats Per Minute and four minutes and forty-eight seconds to match the royalty free music used as default. This is the way the game is meant to be played and is balanced as such! Changing either the length or BPM will automatically mute the music (for obvious reasons) and affect the difficulty in hopefully clear ways.

Use Z and X to do everything!

The GIFs don't do it justice, the experience comes from playing it yourself!

Good Luck!


I fixed a bunch of things, mostly suggestions from the comments on the Ludum Dare page.

Here're the patch notes:

+Sound cue for hitting and missing beats.

+Lowered percentages needed for ranks by 5%.

+Increased hit range of Square.

+Synced Square Waves.

+Synced Triangle Waves.

+Synced Line Waves.

+Synced the Instructions.

+Z and C rotate line, triangle, square, X flips square.

+C now cycles menu other way.

+Added my own music!

+Default Length is now 4:16

The remaining fixes I have to make involve meticulously changing one or two variables, so I haven't quite perfected a few things.

Known Issues:

-At lower tempos, Line and Square Waves desynchronize.

-Several Waves don't line up perfectly with the beats.

Thank you for checking it out!
