Osu!

Posted by Sikila (70 posts) -

Osu! has been one of my favorite Games since ever so I thought I share the Joy and tell you about Osu!.
Osu! is a Rhythm Game where you have to hit circles that appear on screen with your Mouse. Theres also Spinners and Sliders. Spinners you have to rotate the mouse around like crazy to "hit" it. And Sliders start out as normal Circles and then you have to follow their Track with your Mouse. All that happens playing a Song in the Background but you can´t just use your own songs. On the Osu! Website there is a Section called Beatmaps which are pretty much the Songs that were made into Maps for Osu!. That pretty much covers it and since I´m really bad at explaining things I recorded me playing a Beatmap in Osu!. The Song is Reach out to the Truth (Instrumental) from Persona 4:

I've played a fair amount of it in the past using a stylus. It is not really all that fun with the mouse. Best would be a touch screen PC of course.

I recently got this and it is very hard. Doesn't help any that I"m using a mouse though, but I am enjoying my time with it.

If you enjoy Osu!, you'd probably enjoy the games it's based off of even more.

Love this game, just recently started to get into beatmap making for it. It's hard, but really rewarding.

@AjayRaz:
Based on my experiences, yeah it's good but most songs are nearly impossible...  
 
Or I just suck.

Glad to see that some People are getting into it. It´s not so difficult as its all about the rythm and fast mouse movement. 
Have Fun!
