Frets on Fire is an open-source rhythm game developed by Unreal Voodoo, meant to replicate the gameplay of the popular Guitar Hero
and Rock Band
series. Using either a keyboard or a USB controller (such as a PS2-to-USB adapter), players use one hand to hold the frets and the other hand to pick.
The game features the ability to rip the official songs from Guitar Hero
, Guitar Hero II
, and Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s
, provided you have the disc. Three songs are included with the game, and the game also allows for user-generated tracks (either created with the built-in editor or other freeware editors). Several strong forum communities exist to share such tracks.
There are many mods that can be downloaded from the forums that can change the gameplay (including adding Star Power and refined hammer-on pull-off functionality) or change the overall look to replicate the Guitar Hero or Rock Band series.
