40 handpicked Scratch Rhythm Game | Scratch games

Rhythm Game

The appeal of a rhythm game lies in its unique combination of music and gameplay, providing a form of entertainment that engages both the ears and the hands. Players aim to score points or challenge themselves with more complex songs by pressing buttons in time with the music. The effects and animations on screen that match the rhythm and style of the music add to the overall experience.

To express these qualities in Scratch, it is necessary to create a game that combines music and button inputs. Specifically, players can be prompted to press buttons in response to notes that appear on screen, timed to match the rhythm of the music. Adding effects and animations that match the style and rhythm of the music can further enhance the gameplay experience.

Furthermore, Scratch has a feature that allows users to play back sound effects and music. By creating original music and sound effects, creators can make their rhythm game even more unique and engaging.

Let’s explore how to express these qualities in Scratch together!

More Rhythm Game projects are coming soon! More Rhythm Game projects are coming soon!
We have plan to add 1 more Scratch projects of the Rhythm Game.

#01 Rhythm Game with Falling Notes from Three Lanes

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
omowaka’s Scratch Game omowaka’s Scratch Game

This is a rhythm game where you hit falling notes from three lanes in time with the music. The featured songs include:

Carrying You (Castle in the Sky Laputa)
Unlimited by -XAF-
Starship by -XAF-
Water by -XAF-

The Kawaii EDM tracks “Unlimited” and “Starship”, as well as the city pop-inspired “Water”, create an uplifting and pleasant atmosphere while playing! Aim for high scores by tripling the points of notes cleared through special moves and combos.

About the Special Move System:
If you hit the notes with good timing, the gauge will fill up, and you’ll be able to use special moves. You can choose from four types in the menu, but the square-shaped “Beginning of Flames” seemed to be the easiest to use.

#02 A Fun and Simple Rhythm Game Reminiscent of the Old Rhythm Heaven

jaehyun413’s Scratch Game jaehyun413’s Scratch Game

This rhythm game is simple and enjoyable, reminiscent of the old “Rhythm Heaven”. You can freely select from six stages. The controls are very simple; just press the space bar in time with the rhythm. The character animations are incredibly cute, but the rhythm can be quite challenging. Sudden note changes like “backbeats” and “triplets” provide a real sense of accomplishment. Personally, I found the stages with the most rhythm variations to be the most interesting: Air Rally, The Clappy Trio, and Fork Lifter. Give it a try!

#03 Enjoy Various Rhythms with 4 Tracks and 3-Color Notes

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
1STEP621’s Scratch Game 1STEP621’s Scratch Game

Song List:
@hanngou-light’s “Naniwa Android”
@hanngou-light’s “Jiame no Hoshi”
Maou Damashii’s “Moon and Wolf”
Maou Damashii’s “Halcyon”

Press the 3-color notes falling in the 4 lanes rhythmically. The songs include 2 Vocaloid tracks and 2 tracks from Maou Damashii, offering a variety of styles from aesthetic rock to cute VocaRock, making it enjoyable just to listen to the music.

As for gameplay, the sudden purple notes shifting to the left or right lanes can be quite challenging! Even if you miss multiple times, the game won’t end in the middle, so it might be a viable strategy to ignore the purple notes and only aim for the straight-falling light blue notes and the double-scoring orange notes.

The pattern of falling notes is the same, so as you repeat and memorize the patterns, you’ll gradually feel your skills improving, which is an enjoyable aspect of the game.

#04 Enjoy a Variety of Music in this Engaging Game

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
1STEP621’s Scratch Game 1STEP621’s Scratch Game

I believe you can enjoy this game for a relatively long time since it features multiple music tracks. The gameplay is simple; all you need to do is hit the keys in sync with the colored lines that flow from the top of the screen. As a timing-based game, it helps improve your focus while you have fun. Additionally, the game becomes even more entertaining as the colored lines may change positions or grant double points, making it an exciting experience.

#06 A Space-Themed Rhythm Game

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
Henry_da_Cat’s Scratch Game Henry_da_Cat’s Scratch Game

This is a rhythm game where you hit notes, and it has a wonderful world view. I love the spacey feeling of playing notes in the universe. You set up four fingers to hit the notes vigorously, but sometimes you lose track of which finger is which, like thinking you’re moving your index finger but it’s actually your middle finger. Is this the power of the cosmos? (Not really). The game can handle multiple key presses at once, and it feels great when you can hit them all together. It’s a fun game in many ways, offering a sense of exhilaration and speed.

#09 A Game with Untapped Potential Waiting for a Legendary Remix

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
Hobson-TV’s Scratch Game Hobson-TV’s Scratch Game

The game still lacks in gameplay. However, I can sense the potential for it to become a legendary masterpiece if someone remixes it and adds elements like story or battles. To play, you simply hit the Z key in sync with the bar displayed in the top-left corner of the screen. If you time it well, your combo count will increase. Some people have even achieved 110 combos.

Afterward, a text prompt will appear, letting you know that you can also hit the arrow keys instead of the Z key. Give it a try! If you succeed, you’ll enter a stage where you input your name. Move to the desired alphabet letters in rhythm and confirm your choice with the Z key. Can you do it?!

Following that, you’ll enter a bonus stage-like experience where you can actually create the rhythm yourself.

#10 Beat Survival Challenge

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
DANISON’s Scratch Game DANISON’s Scratch Game

Summary of the author’s notes: Start the game by pressing “Start” and pick a level. Try the tutorial first by clicking the light blue square. To create a custom level, click “See inside”, find the “CUSTOM LEVEL” sprite, scroll up, and follow the instructions. The game is inspired by “Just Shapes & Beats”, “Undertale”, and memes, but everything is original except the music. You can play bonus levels by different creators. Enjoy various music tracks linked in the game, each creating a unique gaming experience.

#13 Swing Your Saber to Cool and Chill Music

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
ScratchTheory-’s Scratch Game ScratchTheory-’s Scratch Game

This is a game where you swing your saber in sync with cool and chill music. Blue and red targets will fly toward you from the front, so control your saber with your mouse to hit them. However, make sure to match the color of your saber accordingly, or you’ll lose life. This switching can be quite challenging! Occasionally, pitch-black spikes will fly towards you, but do not hit them with your saber. Doing so will deplete your life.

#14 Electric Frustration Stick Meets Upbeat Music: An Auto-scrolling Arrow Game

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
O2009H’s Scratch Game O2009H’s Scratch Game

This game is reminiscent of the electric frustration stick from old variety shows, combined with lively music as you guide an auto-scrolling arrow to avoid walls. Just a few seconds after starting, the arrow begins to fall due to inertia, so you must use the spacebar or mouse click to make it rise and dodge the walls. The stages increase in difficulty in the order of Speed, Energy, and Giant. The scrolling speed is quite fast, which may cause you to panic. Although fine adjustments can be quite challenging, the game is addicting, making you forget to blink as you become absorbed in the gameplay.

#15 Challenging the Beat Game

The private note ( saved only in this browser )
apple2-2’s Scratch Game apple2-2’s Scratch Game

So there’s this super popular game “Undertale”, right? And in its hardest route called the Genocide Route, there’s this boss battle with a song named “Megalovania”. There’s this beat game where you hit notes dropping to the tune of this song. As you hit the notes in a row, it shows your combo count! Try to see how high you can combo. I’ve seen comments about people getting over 500 combos, which is insane. I struggled just to get 10 combos lol. I feel like Sans is laughing at me.

norumaku’s Scratch Game norumaku’s Scratch Game

Sum of the author’s notes: Welcome to the first edition of “Rhythm Game Extreme Edition”. This game is made up of songs chosen by your votes.

In Play Mode, hit the falling sound blocks at the right time when they reach the light blue line. The keys are D, F, J, K from right to left. Your score changes based on accuracy, with labels like ‘Excellent’, ‘Good’, and ‘Bad’. Keep an eye on your combo count at the top right of the screen. There are seven songs to choose from, and don’t miss the simultaneous release of “Extreme Edition 2”.

In Create Mode, edit the game’s seven songs to your style. It requires skill and memory. Click the song you want to edit, and panels appear for creation. Match the song’s rhythm and use different keys for various sound blocks. After creation, press the flag again to play your song. Remember, recreating or reloading the page deletes your data. Save by clicking ‘Look Inside’ and ‘Remix’.

Note: Due to technical limitations, Remix Mode has moved to another project. Check the provided link for details.

Enjoy and share your feedback or song requests in the comments!
