Coming soon on Steam in March 2018, EvilCoGames, a Russian developer, presents a music rhythm beat ’em up called TERRORHYTHM (TRRT). Set in a totalitarian state, the absolute law is that there is no sound at all in society. However, the player character fights back, destroying any security that prevents sound, while listening to the beats of their own music. In fact, the game itself always one to upload their own MP3 tracks to listen to while playing.
Overall, it is meant to be a hardcore, cyberpunk and intense experience. There are only four buttons in combat, where one must fight to the rhythm of the soundtrack. Depending on the BPM of the track, the game will go either slow or fast. The basic idea is that once an enemy enters the player’s spacial area, they immediately attack and rack up combos. Interestingly, one must collect combos in order to perform attacks with a massive range. There are multiple difficulty levels, and even the ability to use a dance pad for play.
For system requirements, they are overall on the lower end. The game, at minimum, requires Windows XP or higher, 2 gigahertz dual core processor, 2 GB of RAM, Intel HD 3000, Direct X 9.0, 2.2 GB of storage, and a standard audio sound card. For a visual representation of the game and how the game uses custom music, there is a demonstration that shows someone simply using the arrow keys to play.
In the end, TERRORHYTHM (TRRT) offers a different take on the rhythm game genre, blending in certain beat ’em up elements with rhythm based gameplay.
