A platformer + rhythm game at the same time? A bird character that is also a music instrument itself? You already sold me.

It's really fun! But it's wayyyy to hard! Especially once you reach the last level. Either I concentrate on the platforms and die from lack of sweet music, or I play the song (which I would have preferred if the numbers displayed would have been the corresponding keyboard letters instead) and run out of time. 

Also, maybe 8 notes is a bit overkill for 5 fingers (-1 because of the thumb on the spacebar, so 4.) I think 4 or 5 playable notes would have been perfect.

Apart from that, the rhythm part of it is well synced up! Great job!! And congrats on submitting it less than 5 minutes before the deadline!

If you've got some spare time, come try and rate my entry! It has 7 different endings you can find, a hilarious narrator and... another bird character!


Really liked the walking animation and the mechanics! But was too hard for me. :(


Nice but unplayable. It's way too hard

And the fact that jump is on space and occupies your thumb makes it harder


Interesting idea but as others said it was hard to focus on both movement and music notes at the top of the screen. I really  liked the design it was just so fast.


I really love the lyre idea, and your music is really nice! However, I just couldn't focus on both movement and pressing the keys for the lyre because positioning my hands was a nightmare. I would suggest using fewer notes, as it was easier for me to hit notes 1-5 but almost impossible to hit 6-8. Awesome idea, though!


Yo, interesting concept, but I got super nervous while playing when trying to get both the song and the platformer right... I liked ChildrenDrivingRobots' idea, where the movement matches the song (great music btw!)


Super interesting concept and catchy song if you play it correctly! Level 3 is super challenging compared to the other two. It would be interesting if you could do something like this, but make the rhythm go with the  movement as well.  Like if the  move and jump buttons play notes and go along with the song. :) And maybe a few levels of introduction until you add in disappearing platforms! haha :p


I dont really understand why you can play music and do platforming or how it works, or how its related to the theme, But, If i stand still and play the music, its actually kinda relaxing and i like it! However, i think you should put the name of the keys (asdfghjk) instead of the numbers. Overall, good job!
