Inside My Radio

Rhythm games are few and far between but usually they manage to hypnotize the player with their astonishing synchronization of visuals and music. Freeware quality games are even more uncommon, but the indie TurboDindon team created a small gem for the Ludum Dare 23 competition.

We could say that Inside My Radio is a game that thinks completely outside of the box, since behind its platformer looks lies an astute and demanding mix of music and skill. A small green boombox with headphones is the main character, one that could easily be a recognizable mascot for any brand. The purpose of the game is to take this character across some psychedelic stages, but the twist is that he can only jump and dash in sync with the music beat. A clever touch is that every one of our move results in a sound effect that adds to the soundtrack.

So, the trick is to let the music inside our heads – something that is really easy, since the beat is incredibly addictive – and jump at the right time. It can get very demanding, because it’s not only jumping across platforms. Some of them disappear after a few seconds (take note of the rhythm) and wall jumping is one of the most demanding tasks in the game. Although our green block may die in the many lasers and stuff, the creators were kind enough to provide us with infinite continues and only a few seconds before any dangerous setpiece.

Although the beautiful 2D graphics run originally at full-screen 800x600 resolution, it’s possible to edit the file zik.ini to change this setting.

For a game created with Game Maker in just a few days, Inside My Radio is incredibly polished and should serve as a prototype for a commercial sequel. As a free game it is completely unmissable.
