What up all. Today I made a rhythm game in about 4 hours and check it ouuut http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/699701
I wanted to make a rhythm game for such a long time, and I wanted to make one using @AliceMako's "Grid Builder" for a while too! Real great song
I've started coding rhythm games so many times before, but one way or another I've given up on them. But recently there's been a music game jam on itch.io and I felt I should atleast try fully this time.
Originally I wanted to make a platformer, similar to the level in FEZ "Sync"
To test that all the beats/rhythms were playing at the right time, I made it so that a box would change color and position at each beat at random. I then had an idea to make it to the point where it is now, where you had to be inside the box to gain points, since it would be a much simpler system to do. I honestly could've spent the past few hours polishing it and whatnot but I have a lot of other projects and I gotta get busy again uh oh so here's a little prototype of a rhythm game everyone.
I couldn't have made this without the tutorial/guid by that nice fella @fizzd, who made Rhythm Doctor, and a Dance Of Fire and Ice, both rhythm games. Check out their guide that I used: http://ludumdare.com/compo/2014/09/09/an-ld48-rhythm-game-part-2/
And if you wanna dig around and see how this rhythm game is made, check out the source code! https://github.com/ninjamuffin99/MGJGame
