4.6/5 (111 votes)

To paraphrase George Gershwin: I've got rhythm. I've got music. I've got DJManiax, Team Maniax's new rhythm extravaganza. Who could ask for anything more? I've been looking for a music game with excellent tunes, some well-designed note charts and levels of challenge that can appeal to both the casual and hardcore audience, I've got to say I'm pretty well satisfied.

Such a catchy game. Math Class was my favourite too. The controls were sort of frustrating, though. My touchpad was just not up to it, and playing it on a laptop meant I couldn't move the keyboard in relation to the screen, so I sort of had to awkwardly fan my fingers out sideways to cover all of the rows. It worked, but not very well.

I believe Unst is the commonly used onomatopoeia. Also props to TaroNuke for the game. :)

As far as Fantastic > Perfect... see Stepmania (Marvelous and Ridiculous are better than Perfect) or In The Groove (Fantastic is the top judgment followed by Excellent).

There are no buses in Gensokyo!

...Er, ahem. Has anyone managed to unlock "Overdrive"? I'm curious as to whether it's the IOSYS one.

As far as the game itself goes, the only complaint I have is that sometimes the long strings of beats (where it has a line with small markers on it) is hard to see against the background. It's still pretty easy to get a good score if you miss some of them, though.

And with the rotating selection screen, you can also use the arrow keys to select songs (which it doesn't mention on the screen)

The judge was rather......... forgiving. You could just randomly click when notes were mashed up. Talk about notes, timings were off in several notes (BPM and Offset issues are always a tough one anyway >_>)

I haven't tried harder difficulties yet, but I can imagine there will be a note that a mouse won't be able to click with just left click due to the speed. It would be really helpful if you allow right clicks as well.

Songs are quite catchy I must say. Not bad at all. However, some fast pace song (like 'video Out E Vospi) slows down at one point and the problem from that is that notes looks rather messy. You 'could' just leave the pace but just with having less notes.

I don't know if this is only me but I'm having lag from this game. It is probably me I guess

This game certainly has potential. The game is already proven in Offline and I think with just a bit of improvements on the game play and the graphic would certainly grab some players!

Good luck!

P.S. I'm not very comfortable with English so I apologize if I'm making it hard for you to read

I'm missing a lot of notes due to... I don't know what's going on. Is it lag? Is it the game hiccuping for some other reason? I dunno, but the game was constantly freezing for tiny split-seconds, and if one of those happened right on a note, it wouldn't register me pressing the key.

(I tried turning the quality down to Low in the settings menu, and it didn't help.)

@Grasa
The game does that on purpose, with the beat of the song. The problem is it's so unexpected when you don't know how the song goes. I still don't really get it lol.

I heart this game.
Loved the addition of the Monotunes, they're great in any rhythm game.
Lots of the other songs are addicting, too, especially Epilectic Crisis, Isabel, and Mode 7 -hype mix-.

Anyone finished Dash Hopes 3 EX yet?

...
...
Anyone?
Dash Hopes is a joke. Stop playing it. XD

I found this rather bad - I expected some Guitar Hero-ish or something along the lines of Parappa. It tells you to not play with the eyes and recommends using a tablet, which I did - but I still find it rather random and don't really get the connection between the actual clicks and the music.

It seemed okay, but like some others, the timing of when to hit didn't seem to sync with the music quite right. Slide notes seemed awkward as well. I played with a tablet.

And right near the end of my first song, it stopped, started up the next song in the list, looped the first few seconds of that a few times, and then moved on to the next song with the same results but without any click spaces on the screen. I started to go to yet the next song and I closed the tab.

I really like it in keyboard mode. I can't imagine how much more difficult it would be using the tablet. I do have a hard time reading from right to left on the bottom screen, it makes me feel dyslexic, but the music is fun and I enjoy the challenge. I don't think I will ever be able to play those crazy random difficulty ones. WAY too hard!

@Edanna: Yes. It's Overdrive by IOSYS. And getting a star on it unlocks Overdrive Part 2, one of the tracks only playable on Crazy... needless to say, it's hard, but I somehow completed it.

But I still haven't unlocked two songs: the one for which you need to complete the two bosses on Crazy with an A, and the last song.

Anyway, usually I hate rhythm games, but I think this one is awesome.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone unlock the final stage with the "pass ???" ?
I still need to unlock
-5 crazy stars
-10 crazy stars
-get an A on Isabel + Epileptic Crisis crazy mode
-a star on Overdrive
- pass ???

I'm guessing 5 crazy stars is Overdrive XD ?

@K: "Pass ???" you unlock by passing Dash Hope 3, which is the song unlocked by getting A on Isabel and Epileptic Crisis on crazy.

Overdrive is unlocked with 10 crazy stars.

Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I can see (well, uh, hear) the correlation between hitting the note and hearing the note quite well (maybe because I'm doing Keyboard). And for those five requirements, 5 stars gets "You are a joke", 10 is "Overdrive", A on Epileptic Crisis/Isabel on Crazy is "Dash Hopes 3", star on Overdrive is "Overdrive part 2", and passing ??? (Dash Hopes 3) gets...well, I dunno, but reading the comments, I assume it's "Dash Hopes 3 EX". As for my favorite song, it's kind of a tie...between about 15 of them. The songs which I *didn't* like were "You are a joke", "Rotter[___] Nations", "Anticipate", and...well, that's all, really. I liked the rest of them.
