Josiah and The Singin' Woods is a relaxing rhythm game.
Press the correct button when it's in the center of the "strike zone" line on the left.
(note: the default for the red "O" buttons is "Z" on your keyboard)
Don't miss the flashing buttons or you'll lose a life!
The game gets a little harder if you're doing well, and goes easy on you if you miss a few notes. The stars in the top right show your current difficulty.
Show me your highest score!
Really fun little game! Not unforgivably difficult, not incredibly hard. I don't know much about coding on pico-8, i usually just casually enjoy the games, but I can imagine how difficult it is to make a rhythm game in pico-8.
Edit: Best i can do is 12256.
@onkelarie Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
@Meme_Meister Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for playing! The game tries to make it easier or harder depending on how you're doing, so I'm glad you felt like it was in the "sweet spot" most of the time.
And I guess since you're the only one to post it so far, you get the hi-score. =D
I got 12592 as a high score, missed 4 notes and got 62 awesome. Really fun game, though it can be slow at times. I had 3 stars a majority of the time and lost 1 heart.
I haven't seen a rhythem game in pico-8 so good job!
This got me smiling :) thank you for this game!!
Great game although I couldn't find out what the yellow house button is on my key board I still enjoyed playing! Edit: I didnt know that the yellow house was actually a arrow!
I'm recognizing that sprite from NES's "Adventures Of Tom Sawyer" or "Tom Sawyer No Bouken" it's original Japanese counterpart, @mac.
Nonetheless you have done a great job of building a most musical game around it - and clever to see how Tom gets around all of the hazards based upon correctly pushing the right buttons. Definite gold star work.
Dw817 Are you following me? Every game I comment on you always comment after me
I don't think so, @GeKStudios. I see a game I've never seen before. If I like it, I comment and gold star it. I think you'll see I've commented on other carts that you hadn't.
I especially like turn-based games or RPGs. I will always complement and comment on those.
Oh ok well I just think its a strange coincidence that you are commenting after me on multiple games.
@GeKStudios, you've made 5-comments in total since you've been here, three are here. One of which you commented after I did. 1-game outside of this does not qualify as multiple. You'll be alright. :)
