Osu !!! Free online rhythm game !!

Postby alvisto » Mon Jun 08, 2009 11:36 am

Let's learn about osu!
osu! is primarily played using a mouse to click 'beats' displayed on-screen in time with the music. This is analogous to tapping the beats on the Nintendo DS screen with a stylus. At the top of the screen, a health bar is present, which is constantly drained. If the player hits or clears a beat, the health meter at the top of the screen fills slightly. If he misses a beat, a large part of the meter is drained, and if it gets completely empty, he fails the song. There are three types of beats in the game: Hit circles, sliders and spinners. Every time the player hits a hit circle or an end circle, touch a slider tick, or clear a spinner, the combo is raised by 1. If he misses any of the above, the combo is reset back to 0.


If you guys happen to play it, add me as friend, ok ? ;) I am alvisto, and I would log in Osu! almost everyday !! Or leave your username, I will add you instead ! :D

Wow, that does look fun. I have a soft spot for bright and cheerful and a seperate soft spot for rhythm games (there was a time a couple of years ago that Stepmania was always running anytime I was online :P), so the carameldansel really made me want to play. I'll have to give it a shot sometime. ^.^

Alteil is pretty much well balanced. Sometimes you loose and sometimes the enemy wins.

It sounds like they got the name from Ouendan, the Japanese version of Elite Beat Agents. The main characters would always ethusiastically shout "OSU!" when you choose something from the main menu or before they begin a song.

This, I would play.

If my eyes didn't hurt so badly : (

That dance-animation in the above video...
It hurts my brain (the one where people do the one-handed claps/flapping above their ears).

So I must go play something else.

Also - I have a touchpad : P

There's an option to turn the videos off. It helps me see the... um... circle thingies without interference from the background. ^^

Not sure how to add people yet, but I'm ElectricLynx on there, too, if you want to beat me to the punch. ^.^
