your game is broken, I try to play but the audio starts slowly lagging ahead after I get it calibrated, and when I fix it, it goes back to lagging ahead.

Has this been happening to any of you guys???

Sooooooo cool! I loved the musics

Final level of 2nd world was amazing. absolutely loving this game

You know a rhythm game is good when it's so satisfying to play that you replay the hardest level to get perfect clear again cuz it's just that fun

Are they a cat girl or a fox girl? I'mma just headcanon them as a fox girl cuz I love foxes until told other wise :3


FINAALLLLLYYYY!!!!!!!!!! I"M FREE!!!!! It took me multiple hours, but I finally perfected the last level, meaning I've perfect cleared the entire demo !!!!!! AA!!

good vibes, good rhythm, good songs, good art, just good ^w^


Worth your time


This is such a great game with really enjoyable music, I can't wait for the full version to be out. I love rhythm games and this is definitely one of the greater ones. Very simplistic yet still challenging without being stressful, 10/10!


andwill the full game be sold here on itch?


sorry for being impatient, but when can we expect complete game?

and, will it have full blind accessibility

how much will it cost?

this is so cool!!!!

i cant wait for the full game 

as someone who plays Geometry Dash, a lot of platformer games and Project Sekai - I see this as an absolute win

enjoyed the demo a lot, hope this game gets fully released one day <3

(P.S: I did wishlist the game on Steam :D)


I had tremendous fun getting perfect on every level in the demo! that last level showed me that there is a lot of potential for future levels for this game. I loved it!


素敵!! This makes me so happy

I finally finished that blasted last level holy poop, I had to give up on my continuous block jumping technique but it worked! Yes! I can finally carry on with my life :D

I really enjoyed this game

The last level was really difficult for me, but I'll keep practicing can't wait for the full release

cool game, similar to geometry dash but if it had an extra input



Congrats on making such a wonderful game! Its beautiful, charming, and has a wonderful soundtrack! It has great difficulty and interesting mechanics that never feel like too much or too little. I can't wait for the Steam release because I will definitely be buying this! 

Also I perfected every level and will be doing so on the full game >:3 

so true

loved it!

i have beaten the game 7 times and I NEED MORE


im gonna buy this when this goes out SO HARD

Oh wow, i love this game. The final level is very hard (for my) but very fun too 10/10

this game is amazing! it was rather easy to get the hang of, and even though I played on browser, there wasn't any technical difficulties! I cannot wait for the full release.

((I've played ADOFAI, so I slightly struggled with some of the non-alternating parts, perhaps that's just a skill issue on my part...that's probably why..))

(2 edits)

well..I perfected it! which means that I have officially perfected every available level!

this game is soo good, can't wait for the release on steam (also if you keep pressing the jump plus the atk button at the same time you can pretty much "skip" the first levels and have an easy late game. Maybe consider adding some delay between the inputs so that becomes more difficult to happen) 

I love the crossover between a 2D platformer and rhythm game.
I like how the beat is visualised on the ground and the jump gaps increase in size when the speed increases! :)

I love this demo! I even played until I got perfect on every level. I really appreciate such simple controls so it wasn't such a hassle on a touchpad laptop. I'm definitely buying when this is released!

nice a fun game i would buy it when it release the full game if i had money, but overall good game

very fun


amazing game would buy :)

Fun game. Reminds me of Bit Trip Runner.


This is so fun!! I like that the floor has little tiles to show the beats


i need a full soundtrack RN  this is SO CUTE

totally wishlisted




I loved this so much, the accessability options are amazing, i've wishlisted this game and im defo buying it as soon as its out. i did notice one bug though, when im replaying the levels there is an issue with the audio (until you die once). its hard to describe, but it seems like its playing the jump and attack noises a beat before you would press them in the game, even before you press the button. this was on firefox on a mac, if that helps

also i forgot to mention this but when u get in the zone it feels transcendental (emphasis on the trans <3)

this doesn't happen on mac on the downloadable version, so its nothing serious


Ah this demo is super, super cute.What a fun time!! I was really quite bad at later stages but I loved everything about it - the music is great, the scene transitions are fun, the little character sprites are super cute. I've wishlisted the game on steam - can't wait for the full release!
