Intralism is a rhythm based music game that requires precise and precision note hitting to get the highest possible scores and ranks for charts using the w,a,s,d or the arrow keys (can rebind them to anything you want in the options still). The game has a very steady community that makes charts for various genres like anime, blues, children, classical, jazz, rap, metal, rock and more so there is something for everyone. Charts range from easy to hard, slow to fast even one/two handed charts. There are community events for summer, winter, Halloween, Valentines day and so on that allow anyone to make charts then are chosen to be in the event that can get you special Steam inventory items and regular users can play the event charts and obtain event only items too.

A fun rhythm game quite similar, but not the same as other Beatmania’ish games.

The circular layout can be hard to get used to, primarily if you are used to playing other rhythm games, but I believe it is much more pleasant to the eye and can result in more impressive maps/storyboards (while that is obviously up to the mapper).

Some pros:

There are official (==ranked) maps for various levels of skill and a diversity of genres available.

New official maps are (at the time of writing this) chosen every week.

This game is weird, and that is awesome.

The concept of ‘puzzle’ in this game is the one of ‘optimization,’ because if you stitch here and there not really knowing what you are doing you can easily beat the first few levels of the game, but it becomes clear that you have to be more precise and intuitive if you want to get those three star ratings and finish the game! I definitely recommend this to people who are more used to puzzle games, but if you are looking for the most difficult of challenges, this may not be you…

Hey there fellow gamers, I’ve been playing VR rythm games for a while now after switching from Flatscreen Rythm and think I can give at least a somewhat informed recommendation for why GG is worth checking out.- So let’s Cut straight in;)

-So Whats the Game about?

In basic words it’s pretty much a cross between the two smaller VR rythmgames Audica and Synth riders, it’s shooting targets and catching incoming bullets. So yeah, obviously it’s inevitable for any VR Rythm game at this point to not have mechanics aligning with other predecessors of the genre but GG does this quite well and makes for a unique and definitely different experience. (And I will get to this in a bit but it’s EA so certainly the mechanics are a constant WIP and will get fletched out further).

If you are looking for an extreme rhythm game challenge, this one is really well done! The scoring system scale down on a constant quite nicely from perfect timing or accurate shots, so there is a whole ton of room for self-improvement. The developers made tons of accessible options for better performance, or changing up the colors, effects, positioning of your hand and shields, brightness for specific assets, and are also very responsive to the community and bugfixes! This game does take alot of patience to get used to, and is not very casual friendly passed 3+ diffficulty (Sharpshooter), but heavily, heavily rewarding! Been playing it for months now, and its quite the mental satisfaction!

Highly recommend that you give it a try. It’s got a high skill-ceiling (See: My time.) with an array of helpful options/tools to get you to those extreme charts. The editor takes a bit of time to learn (I’d say 5 to 10 hours to get the hang of it.), but has a fast workflow once you figure things out.

More than anything, I think this game has potential. Just sticking with the game for ~3 quarters of a year, I’ve seen the game change a lot, and for the better too. Despite being a single developer, they often work on the game and is very responsive to the (rather small) community. A new note-type (something you don’t see often in rhythm games), camera effects, a ton of world customization options in the editor, and many other things were added since I’ve started playing. It’s incredibly impressive and I hope it pays off.

Let me start by saying that you should get this game. It’s fun, challenging, and offers lots of replayability. The tracks are your standard-fare EDM by largely unknown artists. They’re all pretty good (as are the beatmaps) and with the Workshop the track selection is only bound to improve. It’s F2P so there’s really no excuse not to try it out.

The Gameplay

Overall, the gameplay is incredibly fun. It’s similar to Amplitude’s but with a lot more inputs (9) and from what I can tell it’s almost a carbon copy of Sound Vortex. So if those games are your thing, this probably will be, too. Most of the beatmaps are stellar and really fun to play, with many complex and interesting patterns.

Chiptune Champion

Chiptune Champion

What is the game?

Chiptune Champion is a rhythm game (similar to Guitar Hero/Rock band) that is based around Chiptune music. The game relies on you using the numbers keys (or whatever keys you choose to bind) to hit the notes as they approach you on the board. There are two modes within the game, one requiring you to strum and the other not. These two modes have different rules, however, as in strum mode you can hold down other notes while playing the current note and in the non-strum mode, you cannot.

EDIT 1: They now allow for tempos with two decimal points, so that’s a plus. Original review is below:

I’m loving this game thus far, but I’d advise others to wait until a patch or a few. The mechanics work well, at least for me, and the addition of being able to chart whatever songs you want, and upload them to the Workshop, is really promising (note though that this feature only uploads the chart itself, anyone who subscribes is required to locate their own audio). And I myself dig the soundtrack; chiptune isn’t everyone’s thing, though, so take that with a grain of salt. The note charts are also fun and challenging; if you’re like me, and can pass most songs on Guitar Hero and Rock Band with flying colors, then this game has you covered with fun charts.

Lofi Ping Pong

Lofi Ping Pong

Lo-Fi Ping Pong is a rythmic game, where you listening Lo-Fi music and beat your oppenent at the end of the song.

What really good in Lo-Fi Ping Pong, is the controls. It’s easy. You need 3 keys, which can be WAD, the arrow keys or using controller direction keys. Because of these choices, playing together in splitscreen is also easy, because you could play in one keyboard too. Simple and sweet!

Another thing which surprising good, is the story. Now, if you play the game, you won’t notice too much… except at the end, but the game has some more meaning symbols in the game, messages can tell also a lot about what is happening. It was quite a twist for me at the end, left me with a void for sure, even though it’s not an indepth something, it was still quite an impact.

Since I do enjoy listening to lo-fi, this title caught my attention, so I decided to purchase during the Steam Sale just to see what it was all about.

Well then, you take control of this girl and you play against other players wearing animal masks, something that immediately made me think about Hotline Miami (just checked the developer, and even though it has nothing to do with Dennaton, I’m pretty sure that they’ve got some influence out of it). i’m not really sure if there’s a story or not, but overall, the girl is dealing with some problems and playing ping-pong, while listening to some sick beats seems to be helping her somehow.

Project Arrhythmia

It’s a cool game.

But you’re not here for a simple review like that, are you? You want me to tell you WHY it’s a cool game. A detailed review, yes. So here’s that:

-There are countless levels out there to play, and SO MANY are worth your time. The workshop is constantly updated with new levels from the community to check out. There really is infinite content.

-Bullet hell/music dodging type gameplay takes a focus here. If you’re into that, you’re in for a treat.

-The game’s menu aesthetic fits the vibe it’s going for - the whole computer terminal look fits the (upcoming) story, and is executed really well.

Real player with 2154.4 hrs in game

Since Project Arrhythmia is in early access, I’ll try to go easy on its work and design. After watching people PA levels on YouTube, I thought it would be nice if I could design some levels myself. Note that this review has been revise on 7/18/2020. I do not hate the game, but it has issue that I need to address.


When I install the game, the menu wasn’t presentable; there were 8 options (Story, Arcade, Editor, Config, Discord, Credits, News, and Exit) on the top left and a ton of blank space while music was played in the background. I’m not to sure if there was suppose to be a style theme to this game. I noticed anytime text appear, it comes out like a code. With a game that shows effects and colors, you wouldn’t expect the main menu to look dead. All that bank space, yet nothing to fill in.

Hitting notes on the 7th beat never felt more satisfying.

(And sometimes in other patterns)

Custom levels add great replay value, I’ve probably spent more time on those than in the main campaign.

10/10 IGN would play again
