About Rhythm

In Dan’s game you become a character called Rhythm. The object of the game is to return the Platinum Record back to Rhythm’s hometown, Melody. The Platinum Record holds the key to the enjoyment of music for all ages. Rhythm fights enemies who want to rob the world of music – he’s got lots of tools to fend these bad guys off. You can switch between different kinds of music during the game, as well as gain new abilities and secret knowledge along the way. There are 10 different worlds to conquer in the ultimate quest to rescue the Platinum Record and return the gift of music to the village.

About Dan

Dan's idea takes you on a journey into the music world with Rhythm, the main character of his game. Rhythm’s hometown, Melody loses its access to music when someone steals the Platinum Record. Now, it’s up to Rhythm to find it. Dan explains what Rhythm needs to do to get it back:


“Your main enemy is Silence. You need to defeat him to bring the music back to your hometown. In order to do that, you must use different music styles to change the world to your advantage. The styles are Rock, Metal, Pop, Country, Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Blues. You can switch between different genres of music once you acquire them. Each style of music you switch between affects the world around rhythm. Some make the world bouncy like Pop and some slow things down like Blues. There will be about 10 areas with various levels within each of them. This fun music game has 3 difficulty levels, quiet, loud, and blaring. You must use different music styles to manipulate Rhythm’s world, solve puzzles, and defeat enemies and bosses.”
