Nice! Interesting version of the classic memorize and repeat. I like that the notes disappear, and also the random intervals. It's somewhat confusing that notes are being played while you are playing yourself, but that just adds to the challenge!

Good stuff.

@dollarone thanks for trying it out!

I had a few other ideas (half implemented) for ways to increase the challenge (over time), but they were either too hard, or would have taken too long to finish.

The overlapping musical notes was supposed to sound like a canon... but with random notes and intervals it doesn't sound very good. I updated the game so that the player's buttons make a saw-tooth wave sound, and that helps a bit. You can hear the upcoming melody while you play now. ^_^

Thanks for putting this miniLD together, and thanks again for checking out my game!

Nice game, it's enjoyable but it get's quite fuzzy after a while. The game looks very polished, very good job.

Nice game, looks like guitar hero games (and I like it) ;).

Interesting game, agree the overlapping sounds are confusing, but perhaps if they were arranged to fit better, as some kind of harmony it would actually be realy good sort of felt like the timing of the sound was not quite right to match the positions. Maybe some rhythmic sound to act as a metronome would help. Overall I liked it though the scores on the sidebar is a nice touch.
