Extreme Beatboxing Bird Jailbreak - Cosine - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Help your bird pals escape from bird jail through the power of beatboxing! I recommend having some musical experience before playing this game, otherwise you will probably suck. Feel free to prove me wrong!

Made with GameMaker, Paint.net, and Sonar Home Studio.

Have fun!

Could probably use some helpers for the player so that they know where they're going wrong. Like maybe showing which tracks are still wrong? I played until Morgan Freeman, but I felt like it was too tedious to go on when what I had pretty much sounded like what the bird was singing but I guess a note here or there was missing or too much.

My friends have been freed, I am the beatboxing master! Great execution, enjoyed finishing it :)

Nice, love music games! The final one was really tricky.

@Pekuja: I agree: I wanted to add a feature that showed which tracks were wrong if you didn't succeed, but that would require rewriting the success/failure-checking system. That isn't something you want to do with 2 hours left. :P

Awesome. This game made me feel like I could actually do music! :P I like drum machines, but I don't think I've ever seen a game using this mechanic. Great idea and a very good execution!

Lovely game! I'm a big fan of audio components, so well done! And the concept is hilarious.

I'm one of the people who suck at this by default, but I can appreciate the innovation and fun-factor. Well done.

Wow, once I got it! :-D I just got the first three and then when I heard what I had to imitate, just started the laugh like a madman.

I love your music concept.

This is a nice exercise. Getting all closed hats right can be hard, but I made it through!
