Frets on Fire
September 10, 2008
Hi guys! i want to introduce to you (some already know about it) this game. It's a guitar hero clone, and for the ones who don't know what it is, well, it is a game in which you have to impersonate a guitarist and play famous songs with your keyboard or "toy" guitar. You basically see various kind of notes (which are basically small dots on the screen) scrolling down towards you and your goal is to get as many as possible.
Kind of hard to explain....why don't you give it a go? :D
Personally i suggest downloading "Alarian" and not the basic version of Frets on Fire (FoF). You can find it here: http://fretsonfire.wikidot.com/ds-alarian-mod
as for the songs (you have to download them) you have to go here: http://fretsonfire.wikidot.com/custom-songs
i also suggest downloading guitar hero packs (http://fretsonfire.wikidot.com/packs) as the songs included in those are better than others. Why? Because they won't have any kind of mis-synching, they come in two different tracks(one for the guitar and one for the song without guitar, so basically if you fail to hit the notes, the song will still play but the guitar track won't) and last but not least they come in 4 difficulty levels, whereas most of the other user-made songs come only in Expert.
That's all :) Try it! (did i forgot to mention that it is free and open-source?)
