|Gioioso! A Weird Music Game|
Gioioso! A Weird Music Game is a rhythm puzzle game. Gioioso is a musical term that means that something is played in a joyous manner.
It was participated in the NEO Summer Compo 2006, staying in 2nd place.
Dr. Loopy Discord has invented a horrible machine that can materialize music into small living balls called the Riffballs. He calls the machine Retro Resonance.
Then by accident the machine escaped from Dr. Discord and started to furiously materialize all the music in the world into cute little Riffballs.
But the Riffballs can not live in the solid world, they can only live when they are in the form of sound waves. So all the music in the world is dying!
Dr. Discord calls for you, the player, to help him save all music in the world.
How to play
Riffballs can be transformed back into music by combining 2 same coloured Riffballs together. Drag them on top of each other with your stylus and they will generate music.
The Riffballs die quickly so you have to hurry. You know a Riffball is dying when it turns on a sad face and starts getting darker.
Touching them with stylus will make them last a bit longer.
This version of the game has 4 survival mode levels, in each level there are 3 different Riffballs you will have to join with the same type.
Stylus for the whole game.
