An interesting concept with randomly generated words and rhythm, it was a challenge to balance typing them correctly (and not accidentally mashing on the wrong keys) and the actual rhythm. Cool concept, good job!

Submitted

I suck at rhythm games so I didn't do too well, but I can tell a lot of work went into this game. Either way, it's pretty polished. Great game!

Submitted

definitly an interesting idea, but tbh, im not good with rythm games and this was super hard for me lol.

great job!

Submitted

Really cool art! I like the gameplay and I think it's a really interesting concept. The only complaint that I have is that after a game's over you have to watch the credits again.

Submitted

Really cool concept, has potential. Had fun playing!

Submitted

It's a cool concept, not really sure how it's out of control but I guess if the words are randomly generated, so the lyrics are out of control.  It would have been great if the player was able to vaguely see the next word already, because sometimes it was a bit too quick with the next beat when I just finished a word and had no idea what would be coming next. Apart from that, the music was nice and it keeps you going. Good job!

Developer

Are you telling us that the second word didn't shine enough to be brightly seen ? Glad you enjoyed the concept ! Glad you played the game ! Glad that you fed us back !

Really funky and fun, I see you had some problems with the launch getting the game to load - I really hope, now that you've sorted this, you continue to work and expand on it as this is a great game and I want to see more! :)

Submitted

Not bad! I had to read the description to see how it related to the jam's theme, though

Submitted

Had alot of fun playing this. The musics were super sick to listen to. It was a fun rhythm game, but i'm kinda bad at typing so the game felt quite difficult for me haha. Overall, I could see this as a really fun rhythm game with a bit more polish to the UI. Great job on the jam!

Submitted

Looks and feels polished. Lots of fun. Great job!

Submitted

I didn't understand the out of control mechanic without looking at the page description, there could possibly be some better UI to clarify it to the player? I also didn't like how mis-timing the key press would reject it, I'd often input a lot of keys on what felt like the right timing, but get them all wrong because I mistimed one. In my opinion, when you press a key it should remove that letter regardless of whether it was correctly timed. 

Otherwise though, it was a really cool game, I particularly like the title screen, it looked very fancy. The music wasn't super catchy, but still had good beat, and it felt good to rack up a higher score. Nice game!

If you skip a note, you're out of control, aswell if you multi input, or press any wrong key.  The idea to skip the current character if it's 

out of rhythm could have probably better for gamefeel though... Thanks for sharing and thanks for playing !

This is a really unique rythem game! I think you need a super easy level for absolute noobs like myself just to get people into the flow with it but still this is a very polished game. Great work!

Developer

Well, Glad you tried it ! Glad you failed it ! Glad you tried it again ! Thanks for sharing !  Sorry, we got a bit out of control, the game was a bit harder than expected ! ;)

Had a good deal of fun with this game! I did find it difficult to lose myself in the music while playing since it was more of a frantic looking back and forth between the beatbar and words and letters. The bar and music were a tad off-sync and the scoring is quite bugged.

Was a lot of fun tho! I like mashing up of different genres like this! Good work team! ^-^

Thanks for playing, and thanks giving us feedbacks ! "Oleum et operam perdere."

Your game is very good and i like it but there are two things that concern me: 
1. the game frezes for fraction of a second when scoring, 
2. the way your game checks if to score is kinda buggy, especially with hardest difficulty when "beats" are really close to each other. 

Overall it's fun and entertaining. :)

Submitted

Nice game ! The musics sounds very good ! keep going -Ivory-

Submitted

I really like the concept and presentation, I can see this being used to learn keyboard layouts. Fun overall!

However I was more concentrated on making sure to type correctly then actually enjoying the music.

Developer

We tried to keep it didactic after all : learning to type without getting out of controls! Thanks for playing and for feedbacks !

Visuals aint bad and music is pretty good. Concept is interesting but keeping track of what to type and the music is very hard to do and takes away from my enjoyment. When I play rhythm games I want to enjoy the music and focus on the beat, not on words and my keyboard.

I don't see how this fits the theme at all tbh, it feels like a typing rhythm game, nothing out of control about it.

Let's explore GD ! You have 3 lives "OUT" "OF" "CONTROL" when you loose the last heart (it mean when you were out  of tempo, or typo) you start "loose control mode"  when your score start to drop bit after bit until you get life back by gettin a point (getting control back) (or just get to the end of the track freely loosing score also works )  ! 

Developer

Btw thanks for playing and for feedbacks ! :)

Submitted

The music and visuals are excellent, gameplay is challenging, best suited for people who can type without looking at the keys. An interesting genre mashup.

Developer

Thanks for playing ! Glad you enjoyed the difficulty as a challenge ! If i may give you a gameprotips : knowing the music all by heart is much more simple that learning to type without looking ! Thanks for feedbacks !

Submitted

Really nice idea of game, at the start I didn't know how to control it but in the end I got the hang of it.

Never thought my typing is so slow :))

Developer

Heh ! XD

Thanks for playing ! Glad you.. "git gud"... how do I say ? Thanks for feedbacks !

Submitted

Really good take on the theme. I played several rhythm based games in the jam, and this one really stands out. I also loved the visuals. Good job overall!

Developer

We could "of" done so much more with a  Graphical artist ! Thanks for playing, glad you enjoyed ! Thanks for reviews !
