Hello, this is DJ BNG.
I can easily perceive that a lot of effort went into this game. Every song has its own background, the synchronization was practically perfect (exceptions: Anticipate (Crazy), was synced slightly late sometimes; Dash Hopes 3, was synced slightly early at the fastest parts), and sometimes they surprise us by suddenly changing the bar's position, still following the tempo (Monotune -respect-; Epileptic Crisis), and they are great things, that make this game even more interesting.
Everything organized in well-designed menus, with a futuristic scheme.
The choice of songs was pretty good, but not the best possible. Some songs don't fit in this "futuristic" game (Love the World and You are a joke would have fit in other games where you play like using a guitar (like Frets on Fire)). It would have been good, I think, if you added some slower-paced songs too.
The difficulty is perfectly well measured, and so are the medals (I think it would have been nicer if you added more, but nevermind).
Suggestion: In DSAH HAPOS X's speed, instead of writing "???!" you could have written "2,147,483,647", if you know what I mean with that number. Also, in its difficulty, you could have started to write "9999999..." until they are covered by the "Harder" button... Just to scare them a bit more. ;)
The only flaws this game has are in some songs' synchronizations. I played every single song in every difficulty, and found out that some notes were hard to hit properly.
So I'd like to leave a list of the little flaws some songs have, and how to beat those parts (FOR ANYONE WHO READS THIS).
Before I begin, I'd like to clarify:
- While playing in the top row:
If you can't catch a note that is just above the right red line (from the bottom row), try to catch it just a bit earlier. Examples: Anticipate's 48th note (Easy); Monotune -respect-'s 31st note (Easy).
- While playing in the bottom row:
If you can't catch a note that is just below the left red line (from the top row), try to catch it just a bit earlier.
If you can't catch a note that is over the right red line, try to catch it just a bit earlier. Example: Dash Hopes 3's very last note.
Ok, let's begin:
-> Minor flaws:
- "Isabel", Standard:
The notes 17th and 18th have their priorities inverted. The same happens after the main part of the song, the same way.
Solution: Catch the 17th note a bit earlier. You can still get a "Fantastic" from it. After you do, you can continue playing normally.
- "0x1311", Standard:
The notes: from 56th to 63th (8 pink notes), have their priorities inverted.
Solution: Try to catch every single note a bit earlier. You can still get "Fantastics" from them.
The notes: from 101st to 103rd (three red notes), have their priorities inverted.
Solution: Read above.
- "Seven Circles", Standard:
The notes: 263th and 264th (near the end of the song), have their priorities inverted.
Solution: Catch the 263th note a bit earlier. You can still get a "Fantastic" from it. After you do, you can continue playing normally.
Also, can anyone tell me why, when you score 100%, it actually shows 100.37%? o_O
- "Epileptic Crisis", Easy:
The notes: 82nd and 83rd (orange multi-tap notes), have their priorities inverted.
Solution: Try to catch the 82nd note a bit earlier. You can still get a "Fantastic" from it. After you do, you can continue playing normally.
-> Major flaws:
- "0x1311", Standard:
The notes: from 110th to 115th can't be caught properly.
Solution: Play it on Mouse/Tablet style. (I say that because I couldn't find any way to make it 100% with the keyboard. If someone could, please tell us how).
- "Epileptic Crisis", Standard:
The notes: from 130th to 146th (17 red multi-tap notes) can't be caught properly.
Solution: I actually couldn't find any way to make it 100%, using either the keyboard or the mouse. If someone could, please tell us how. (in the highscore table we can clearly see two people who could score 100%...)
PM me. ;)
Much of the standard charts were kind of rushed as you can see :(
Thanks for the in depth review! The way the sequel works, none of the notes have their priorities inverted. The sync is also a ton better.
Personal record: 27 (fifth try).
Personal record with eyes closed: 12 (didn't try too much this way though).
Personal record of response time at 10 hits: 102.
One of the sequences I had to follow was Yellow, Blue, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow.
I play remembering the notes as groups of 4, and after hearing the whole sequence, I replay it following a fast but consistent rhythm for each group of notes. If I need to think the next pattern, I stop some milliseconds and continue.
It's not very good to try to do it very fast, after some time you may be not sure of the keys you have to press, or you can mess up yourself and end up mashing the arrow keys.
It would be nice if you added alternative controls (WASD keys), because the "up" arrow from my keyboard is broken, so I have to click the green button if I ever have to use it.
Also, I don't know whether the problem is my computer, my Internet connection or whatever, but I can't upload my highscores. I can't even see the scoreboard, and I want to know if I'm good at this or not! :(
Another flaw I found is that, if you lose, and press the "Play" button too early (when it's still "invisible"), that button (and the "Play more games" one too) will freeze, forcing you to refresh the page.
Despite those little points, the game is flawless as far as I could see. It's simple but cleverly designed, the graphics are excellent, and the atmosphere you created is perfect for this kind of games. The background sound also helps very much to focus on the game.
Thanks for filling a new space in my Favorite Games' list.
And kudos to MrRubix. o_O
Finally, I could do it!
When I played this game for the first time, I lost immediately.
Then, I read that playing "Music Stomp" first might help.
So I played it.
When I did it, I forgot this game. I began to play all your other games (Music Zap & Ping, Rhythm Blaster, Coolio DJ, and a looong etc...)
Then I found this game again. I remembered how those big pillars were scaring me at first, so I tried again (today).
First try: Reached second part of the song.
Second try: Reached third part of the song.
Third try: Reached fourth part of the song.
Fourth try: Reached just the first (I began losing 2 or 3 lives, so I restarted the game)
Fifth try: I DID IT.
But I can't submit my score of... uh...
Damn! I don't remember my score!
But well. It's true that Music Stomp was easier than this game (and that's great, since we aren't all good players).
So this game is great. It should have a score higher than 3.87, that's why I'll vote 5, and a ten from my review.
Thanks for entertaining me! (and for making me feel like a pro). ;)
Am I doing very well?
Because I made 151455 points. ^_^
Very cool game, it's relaxing and fun, and I love the ambience that it has. The music helped a lot too, is soothing, and fits perfectly. I really like the way the difficulty increases, smoothly, but noticeable.
I like very much this kind of games (avoid, skill), so I'm glad I clicked this game.
And the fact that the "enemies" move along with you, is something totally new for me. I've never seen or thought about something like this (that might sound weird, but that's true)...
Uh... I'm tired. I don't know what else to say. Here, in Argentina, is 2:35 AM...
So... here goes my vote for you.
I love cats.
I really love them.
The guy below me is a hacker, or a liar. xD
Reflex Test 1: 0.219 (+45.732)
Reflex Test 2: 18
Speed Test 1: 98
Speed Test 2: 51
Speed Test 3: 191
Final Score: 403.732
I discovered this game just today...
...and finished with a score of 61/78! -17 against par.
I've felt really smart playing this dude. The music is nice, and I didn't get bored of that (I'm listening that while writing this).
Hmmm... 20043... I must remember that. I wonder why.
Haha, this is very funny!
Please, make another: "AotP 2: The Tits' Revenge"!! lol
(A really good game)
Haha, I play this game almost every day, I'm addicted to this shit. And who am I in the game? I'm BXXN! And I sync hard songs only! And they are only DJ Disks! Because that is the best game mode! And I play really good! Haha!
If Randomness159 makes complicated ones, I will play them, to see if that's true...
Wow, I passed level 57 with Hidden Walls...
Reached lvl 90... then I can't.
Very funny game!
2810 seconds, using 3 hints... :S
