Really really well done! Was looking out for rhythm games as I made one too (though not the traditional kind). Am impressed by the level of polish of the game. Having the whole calibration at the start really show your care for the player. While not the most original, really good job on the work. Would love to see varying difficulties and levels, and am curious how you would change up the game if it is expanded. Great work!

Oh god this was fun.

My fav rhythm game this jam!

Very simple, but very strong usage of the DDR.

Didn't finish the song, but game became real fun when the hard started.

Fun stuff!

Nice rhythm game! Fun and concise gameplay. I think there's a bug that allows you to hit enemies even when you're stunned from missing the beat.

Thanks for playing :) And you're right! Can't believe I missed that lol

Cool rhythm game, even if I'm not a good at rhythm ^^"

The gameplay is very accurate, and the music gives a real tension!

Just a little note, my antivirus software blocked your game, because it detected that your game tried to modify "save_data.txt". Of course I unlocked the game in order to play it, but it was just to warn you about that, I don't know if you knew this issue.

Overall, good work!

Thanks for playing :) And thanks for letting me know about the antivirus problem! Not too sure what I could do to fix that, all my game does it create and open that file to store your calibration data. Antivirus programs can be mysterious sometimes!

Love rhythm games so this was a fun one from me. I lost myself in it, bopped my head and kiiiiillled it. Wish it were harder to be honest! I even tested to see if you could hit all of the keys and continue to mash but I got a "!" overhead, so I'm glad you thought of cheat prevention!

Honestly - one of the best games I have played on this jam. Maybe it is just my opinion but rythm games have this spirit which other games don't. Big cograts on making this. Making main character and hearts animate to the beat was just an excellent idea. Only thing I would change/add would be to
1) let user know that he has hit the right note - small, little text like nice/cool would be just perfect
2) make impact stronger - upon hitting the right note I would add some screenshake or temporarly distort a lens or just scale camera - just to achieve this boom effect. Overall I have really enjoyed playing this game - thank you for developping it. Keep it up

Really cool game, the rhythm aspect with the enemy movement and the pulsing health bar was really well done. Some things could have used a bit more attention though, namely more player feedback for when they kill enemies or get damaged. Overall really well done tho I enjoyed it.

Thanks for playing :) And thanks for the feedback! More feedback for getting hit/hitting enemies was definitely something on my "polish" list. I actually had some spare hours left before my 48 hours were up so I was able to improve that area a little bit. (I added some screen shake, sound effects and particles)
