Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

Typro

by PeerPlay - Compo Entry

Type the letters that float into the screen to score points. You can enter an URL of your choice of music to any OGG or WAV file!

My second time I joined Ludum Dare. I have alot of homework, but made this within 10hours, cause I just love making a game!

PS: I know this isn't the most original game design there is. I just wanted to fiddle around with getspectrumdata & streaming music ;)

use keyboard keys to type the letters at screen!

Have fun!

Awesome! I love music games,
I wonder how did you make the camera progress according to the music?

The camera stands actually still. The texture on the green grid is getting an offset, according to the loudness of the bass.
I am working with GetSpectrumData Fast Fourier Transform Window. Google those ;)

Nice work, I like the graphics being tied to the audio. Does it affect letter generation too?

I'll try again with my own music when I'm home from work.

Awesome game. I love the music implementation. I kept getting a little confused weather it was a p,b or q though :P Very nice entry:)

Fun game. I like typing games. The only thing that annoys me is the extreme screen shaking, which makes it hard to look at the screen once it gets faster. Maybe reduce that. Nice visualization of the music.

Fun little game! It would be cool if you spelled actual words instead of random letters.

Music games, yay! :D Equalizer looks really cool, 5/5 for graphics. But typing to getting score... I mean, cheap to design. Good game anyway, well done

good job, fun game!

I wish I had this when I was younger to learn how to type. Nice job!

Pretty awesome! I wish the letters explosion sound was somehow tied to the music. Maybe it generates a tone based off of the beat or something similar? I feel like the explosion sound sort of takes you 'out' of the music.

That's not worse than mine :) Really liked it. The default music was great, and the effect and vibe were really chill. (With the occasional loud explosion). Even got a bit hectic there in the end.

Gonna make my kids play it for practice :)

Thanks!

The game has good vibe to it. I wish I can type faster without looking at the keyboard :). Good work!

I love this game! Thank you. Awesome graphics, nice intuitive gameplay and creating the hunger for higher scores :-)
Well done!
My score: 5980

Very cool! I've played a few typing games but this is the first one I can honestly say I liked. I do wonder if rotating the letters makes them a tad too illegible sometimes (especially when things start to ramp up), but it's a nice challenge.

Awesome, love it! Music game meets typing game is a fantastic concept, also gives you an excuse to use as many keys on the keyboard as possible which is pretty cool. Might be a good way to teach people how to touch type too!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
