This is such a cool concept!
A downloadable game for Windows
Story Behind : Time Pass
A simple musical game where everything is related to music.
Your brain and Left/Right arrow or A/D to turn the line
Space to pause the game and R to restart when paused.
You will get one point every One-Tenth of a second and every time you break those tiles you will lose 5 points. Collecting the orb rewards you 500 points. You cannot touch the red line or the game will be over.

I rated this but I guess the written portion doesn't show for other folks (sorry if it does, kind of new to this site)?
I would really love to give this more score because I LOVE the concept but the execution had a few problems. Here are the pros and cons.
- Music is really good. I didn't like one of the songs but the others were great. Not exactly my music genre of choice either so well done. I would love to have the songs.
- Visually, very attractive.
- Simple controls.
- Hitting the lines in the middle doesn't end the game (and that means the song keeps going), just lose one point.
- How to score points was unclear for me. I think having a short tutorial on an instrumental track would really do wonders for this.
- The line moves based on the tempo of the song. The dancer in me could predict these changes but at the same time the line becomes very hard to control properly. Since this requires fine movements I think there should be some adjustments to how the line speeding up and slowing down works because it feels a bit off as is.
- On this note, the best strategy is to kind of not try and play the game as intended. When you hit one of the sides, the game ends and the music stops. Since the line can wildly change speeds, which also impacts the distance it travels, it is super easy to go out if you even think about going near the edge for about half the songs.
- It would be nice to turn the filter on the screen off, if this were a longer game, and please keep in mind I would play this if it were longer, it would hurt my eyes.
As is, I like it and recommend giving it a shot, but still think it could use a bit of fine tuning.
