Thanks for trying out this game. I hope you
enjoy it. Your comments/questions/bug reports are
This is a music game so play to the rythm to get
the best score and more importantly, to make the
For best results play in a quiet area with the
volume turned up or use headphones.
There is a pretty steap learning curve, but after
a few tries I think you will be able to play
along pretty well with any of the six songs.
I have found this game to be impossible to play
using an emulator - please play on real NDS.
+++++++++++++HOW TO PLAY
Instructions on how to play can be seen by
clicking the ? on the main menu.
While playing, you can press Start to return to the
Practice mode, runs the songs at 1/2 speed but
the accompanying background music is not played.
This game uses SRAM to save results but you will be
asked before it is formatted & used. If your device
does not support it or you choose not to use SRAM,
your scores will be cleared when the power is turned
off. AKA: the end of the world as we know it
The mod music was modified to fit my game engine
and to slow them down to a playable speed. The
original un-edited mods can be found at:
Thanks to the creator's of these mods!
This game would not be possible without DevkitPro,
libnds and PAlib. Thanks to the contributers to these
tools that make NDS homebrew possible and more accessible!
I've been very interested in making a music game since I began game programming (July 2005). I enjoy rythm games but really wanted to make a game where you are playing one of the instruments ala Guitar Hero (a fantastic game).
I built a game for the GBA where you could play a guitar, well 20 powercords to be exact, by pushing different combinations of buttons. While I got the hang of it from constant playtesting, I couldn't find anyone that didn't find it TOO hard to enjoy.
Thanks to the DS touch screen, I think this interface is a lot easier to play - though you may disagree at first! It allows a user to have full set of 20 sequential notes of an instrument, (chosen to fit each song), and by playing the right note at the right time, you will not only score well, but you will be making music...so tell your mom your quiting band...and get good at this game :P
If you like this game...check my website for a new game coming out (also in January) by the name of playDiSmusic where I took the same gameplay engine and reworked it for a new look & feel all in the name of rock'n'roll.
Anyways - I had a great time making this game and am very pleased with the end result. I hope you enjoy.
