i have a problem, when the first patient is approaching. It doesnt work! i played this game before and i wanna play it again, how do i fix this problem?


Great to finally have the game, fizzd (even if it's the early access version that's sadly missing Delay Pedal)! I can still remember playing it with my girlfriend in 6th grade and now I'm in my first year of college. Thanks for all your hard work over the years and for never giving up. Hopefully we can get more versions in other languages of the original songs! Bless!


If you still want to play this game, download the offline version. It still works!

Happy New Year! RIP Flash, you will be missed. Good thing this demo was archived in flashpoint, but it's not the same. Looking forward to that February release pending some unforseen catastrophe! Love talking to any and all members of the dev team on the discord, you guys are honestly some of the nicest and most caring people I've met, and I wish you all good luck on wrapping up what's left.


Thank you for the reminder to update this page plaster haha. RIP Flash, same to you and may 2021 finally be Rhythm Doctor year
