Simple concept; done well. I do agree with the sentiment that the auto game over might be a little harsh, but it's still fun.

Feels polished and fun!  Probably would be easier to play if you made the bottom the down arrow, the middle space or right arrow and the top the up key.  Then again easier isn't always better xD  Nice graphics and music too!  Great work! :D

The controls are a bit awkward and difficult yo get used to but i'll polish it up and make it easier to play in the beginning

Nice game! I included it in my Music Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)

Thanks Jupiter! I'll make sure the game is completed and will be more interesting and fun the next time you play it

The game seems to have some sync issues, it feels like it's almost there, but can be perfected. The music is really nice though! Also, I find it interesting to concentrate on a single pattern: once learned, it's great to feel in the "flow" of the music.

However I had two main problems: the first is the key position. "Up" being at the bottom… That's quite confusing!^^ The second one is the instant game over. I feel it to be too punitive, having to start over again and again at each mistake is frustrating.

But rhythm games are hard to make!^^ And this is a pretty decent result for a game jam. Congrats!

Thanks Itooh for checking out the game. I definitely appreciate the feedback and will implement it into the game. Thanks again :D

Beat Defeat is a really cool idea. I love the neon theme you got going,it's great. Really gave me that Osu Mania/ Stepmania vibe. The only criticism I have is that (it could have just been me that was bad at it) some of they keys were out of sync with the music.

Developer

Thanks for playing Nano. When it comes to time (The Game Jam haha) I didnt have enough time to finish it up. I'll definitely sync more tracks to the percussion and make sync the sound better aswell

It looks like a good start. The beats don't synchronize with the bgm, though? Also, is it the same loop forever? It needs more variety in my opinion...

Developer

Guilty as charged haha...The bpm of the track is 120..i produce dance music at 128bpm - 140bpm so lowering it to 120bpm is a bit new to me. I'll definitely take everyones feedback and implement it into the game. Aiming for android and ios release in the future so be on a lookout for this game :D
