来自中国的玩家们，向你们问好！十分感谢你们的热心捐款（当然，如想免费下载游戏，在下 载界面中选择"No thanks"开头的链接即可）。游戏中有一些额外的操作按键，特此说明：在选关时，按S键选关将进入慢速模式，按D键将进入加速模式。在关卡进行途中， 按大小写切换键Caps Lock键可以开启双人游戏模式，第二名玩家按"L"键来进行游戏。
假如在游戏途中发现有不同步的现象，请您(1) 用力按空格键，以能听到按键声为佳，(2)假如您使用的是Chrome浏览器，建议换用Firefox或其他内核的浏览器，因为Chrome自带的Pepper Flash插件与游戏不太兼容。祝您玩得愉快！Translation provided by 谜之声.
Many, many hours have been spent making the engine accurate enough to
support a margin of error of a few hundredths of a second. After extensive
testing we found a calibration that worked for all browsers, except Chrome.
(If you are hitting bang on beat it will still be within the 'perfect' margin on
Chrome, it will just be less forgiving to late timings and more forgiving to hitting
IF YOU INSIST ON USING CHROME:
The Chrome problem is not specific to this game, but affects
all games. It's just this game requires a degree of accuracy so high that the
tiny lag caused by Chrome's inbuilt Flash Player is enough to
throw the timing off. YOU CAN MAKE IT WORK IN CHROME by going to chrome://plugins and disabling all plugins with
'PepperFlash' in the location. This will make it use the normal Flash player like the other browsers, if you have it
IF YOU ARE USING LINUX:
If you get significant delays in hearing sounds, check this thread for a solution. Thanks to @EspyoPT for the tip!
IF YOU STILL THINK THE TIMING IS OFF: You are
probably used to hitting earlier in all rhythm games. In this game, you must
get over the automatic compensation that you usually do. One easy way
to do this is to hit the spacebar with force, as if you are hitting a drum,
and making sure that sound coincides exactly with the clap
from the game. Try hitting
a surface near your spacebar for the first six beats,
listening to the sound of your hits,
and then SLAMMING your hand onto your spacebar on the seventh! This
advice seemed to work with almost everybody when
we had a booth at GDC. Sorry about
And if after all that you still think it is off, tweet me! This is really important to us!

I enjoyed this game
Hey why in the thing offline app i cant advance to next level just tutoirla
Can you actually beat the bonus level?
You cannot beat Matchbox Unwell. It's endless
i want to play it on steam so bad for like months i want this
HOW DO YOU GET THE NURSE TO SAY THE CUES
Sorry i made it too small to see i drew it btw on ms paint
hope you like it!
go to my account page
i want to know where the preorder is now
how do i get the preorder demo?
Great demo! Can't wait for the whole game! If the demo is so cool, then the full version will be the best!
?hey fizzd, does the game end after the bonus level? (unwell)
Hey Fizzd! After you updated the zip file the game wroks perfectly thanks! By the way, look left if you're on pc
hi, i dont know where to get the download, can you please help me
hey fizzd, I want to get the offline version, but im not sure where to go to get it. am I dumb? thanks. also, I really like RD.
Can someone help? I tried to play the offline version and it didnt want to load the first level after the tutorial. I did everything just as it said in the HOW TO PLAY.txt file
Oh, I think maybe you didn't extract the zip before playing it? (right-click the zip file, click extract) Let me know if that worked and if it did i'll update the txt file with that instruction. Thank you!
I extracted it btw. The tutorial works fine but the first level just says "patient aproaching: %NaN%" same in the tutorial
I see you updated the zip file. I'll check it tomorrow. I dont know what time it is in your country but here its already well past 10pm.
The passive-aggressive comments are, while annoying, highly motivating. All in all, a great part of a great game!
I LOVE this. As a musical person, I enjoy the mental challenge of timing myself with the rhythm as well as using both the visual and auditory cues. I honestly though my sense of rhythm was excellent, but this game has proven that I definitely need some practice. Great job!
Also, I found it much easier at times to keep my eyes closed so that the visuals wouldn't throw me off.
cara esse jogo é incrivel e bem dificil é legal sendo que tem que clicar so um botão tomara que eles tragam mais fases quando lançarem
I can definitely tell this is based off of rhythm heaven given the strict timing and the passive aggressive end comments.
it wont open the flash app. halp me
This is ridiculously fun, and more challenging than I expected for a one-button game! The glitchy boss fight is a wildly cool experience, I'm looking forward to more content!
Hey fizzd, I made Spanish lyrics for All The Times, which I also posted on the YouTube video for it. Enjoy! Maybe you could make it in more languages!
No me abstengo
De tu amargor
Una vez y nunca más
Hago excusas sin cambiar
Hoy, no intenté
No puedo alejarme de ti
De la paz que me das a mí
Todo lo triste
Va desapareciendo por hoy
Me entras ya
Me dicen que está bien
Que voy a vencerlo
Y después de todos los tiempos
No puedo alejarme de ti
Me entra otra vez
hello GreenToxic, wow, thanks a lot!! Our programmer speaks Spanish actually haha, so I will forward this to him. Thank you for the help!
holy shit i forgot how good this game was. looking forward to more updates in the future!
Honestly one of the best games on itch.io
If not THE best
This is very hard and uniquely fun ngl
This game is pretty much part of me at this point. I found it around 5 years ago and I played it so much, and every now and again I'll come back to this page just to play through all the levels again. Thank you for this gem
This is such a cool game
3 years has gone... I come here again... I'm waiting for this game so long (sad
love it! owo
- Graphics on point
- It is only one button to press
- It's addicting
I just LOVE ITTTTT
4. The secrets are easy, REALLY. Easy.
5. The boss is kind of easy only cause you just count to 7 every time *SORRY FOR SECRET SPOILING >_<
6. Classy is a major tier on music so is Battleworm Insomniac and even Intimate.
Got So Addicted To This Game That I'd Come Back Every Day For About 5 Or 6 Days, Trying To Get A Rank S On Every Level, Today I Finally Got The
Secret Level, And I Gotta Say: This Game Is Truly A Masterpiece
I'm Really Looking Forward To The Steam Release, And Fizzd, If You're Reading This, Thank You For Making This Excellent Game, Appreciate You S2
