Notes of a melody

by Zerkruemler - 48 Hour Compo Entry

When you don't hear the sound, try reloading the page. There is an issue with asynchronous sound loading

A 10 second music part was scrambled somehow. Find the correct sequence to play the correct tune.

A short musical game using HTML5 and Javascript. Runs in modern HTML5 browsers. (Internet Explorer does not work)

The bumpy sound comes from the HTML5 Audio implementation. I didn't have the time to find a workaround, but I wanted to finish the game instead.

There is a nice idea behind these not really appealing aesthetics. With help of a musician and an artist it could be actually pretty fun.

Admit it - you did this just to show off your mad ukulele skillz. =)

Cool idea. The music samples can overlap which is cool in some cases but a little annoying if you advance the level. I'd have them cut off if the player advances.

Nice work.

Not sure how to pass the first level. Probably I didn't read the instruction carefully?

Good music game. Might be tough if someone is not familiar with some of these tunes though but I guess they are all pretty well recognizable.

A good musical game.

Eddie, that you? :p
Nice, like the audio idea, good choice :)

A brilliant music idea!

Fun game! Not sure if this is a bug: you can make your arrangement, hit "play song" realize it's wrong, change the order, and if you do it before it's done playing the song, it'll count as a win. I like the mechanic to spend points to get hints. I didn't use it until I realized I should in order to judge the game, because even on the songs I didn't recognize, there's still enough musical and sound cues to get it right.

It's not a bug, it's a feature. No really, it is my first ludum dare and I know this is technically far from beeing perfect. But I had only about 12 Hours to spend and I wanted to have a running game no matter if it has some glitches. Thank you for playing and having fun.

Adorable! Brilliant idea, excelent concept and well implemented! It would make an great mobile game, you should try to move ahead with it :)

Awesome idea for a game! I could definitely see myself playing this on the train ride home on my ipod or something.

Cute little puzzle game. It's great to use my ears for once in one of these entries. I like it!

This is a fantastic little game, enjoyable and relaxing. Could see it expanded into something bigger.

Nice little music game. It would be cool to expand this with matching graphics to each song, throw it on mobile, and let the kiddos play it.

Neat game, and as someone else mentioned, I think there's potential to turn this into something bigger.

Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:24am

A very cool idea and an excellent game, congrats :)

As some1 said, nice little game for kids developing musical hearing. Not for me though.

Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:29am

This is a really good idea, but the execution could be better, especially in player feedback, general "juiciness" and graphics. If you overcome these issues the game could indeed become something bigger!

Neat music game, refreshing to see something different!

I had no idea what the last song was and brute forced it haha but otherwise I really enjoyed it. Under the hood nice and simple js, only what was needed so you execution is good! Cool fun game.

Very cool! Haven't seen anything like it on here. Fun and simple.

Cool idea. I enjoyed this one, though after level 3ish I was struggling haha!

Sep 1, 2013 @ 10:07pm

If I had a kid I'll definitely let him play this game.
The more difficult songs are actually pretty nice puzzles. Relaxing and interesting game.
Great job!

Very nice, only the short pauses between tracks disrupt a bit but very funny otherwise. Something different. I like it.

I couldn't hear any audio on the web version.

That bass intro is cool.
It was a nice way to implement the theme, and the game was fun. If you can do it, it could be a good thing to stop playing sounds when a new button is pressed to avoid multiple sounds.
Scored 87, I didn't know the last one.

Nice music game :) It requires familiarity with the songs, but I think original music composed considering the game mechanic can work even better.

Seems interesting, but couldn't pass the first level!

Sep 12, 2013 @ 6:39pm

I thought this was absolutely fantastic :) Great idea! A stop button for the current playing sound would be nice, but overall a fantastic game!

Sep 13, 2013 @ 6:35pm

Cool, but I had the hardest time with the last one even with all the hints (I didn't know the song at all). I guess the problem was that since each slice was made right between notes, they felt more or less interchangeable since I didn't know the melody. I like your hint system.

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.
