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
(apparently Chrome is shutting down Flash at the end of the year anyways, that's why we've remade the full game in Unity now, but for browser demos Unity is terrible, oh golly what will we do)
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 love this game - unique concept, good music and just fun to play. Sadly I don't have anything to support it but i would really like to see a full version.
Thank you! We are working hard on a full version that will be released on Steam. Hopefully we will have news on a release date later this year.
In the meantime, if you ever want another rhythm game to play, we released another game called A Dance of Fire and Ice: https://store.steampowered.com/app/977950/A_Dance_of_Fire_and_Ice/

불과 얼음의 춤을 너무 재미있게 플레이해서 단 몇 시간 만에 보너스 스테이지까지 클리어를 했습니다.
그러다 같은 제작사의 리듬게임인 리듬 닥터를 발견하고 데모 버전도 방금 클리어를 끝냈습니다.
너무 재미있게 플레이했습니다 좋은 게임 만들어 주셔서 너무너무 감사합니다 :)(미리 구매도 할 것입니다)
the new more hard game every
HOW TO PASS OF THE LEVEL 3!!!
this game is very good
the level 5 its imposible!!!!!!!
Yeah it's pretty hard, but I almost got it, so it's not impossible
So, I made it to the end of the song but the pattern just loops forever I think? I will conduct further research but that is my preliminary conclusion.
Oh my this game is actually extremely difficult!! It's unlike most rhythm games I've played and I love it. Sadly I only made it to 4 though (because I suck) but I'd love to see more games like this one!
We have another rhythm game! It's called A Dance of Fire and Ice: https://store.steampowered.com/app/977950/A_Dance_of_Fire_and_Ice/
And you'll see more levels of this one when we finish the full version of Rhythm Doctor! Thank you!
Dude you could make this into a main stream game! the music's great it has some challenge and could totally make it on all the platforms
Thank you! We're currently working on the final, full version for Steam. You can add us to your Wishlist so you know when we're released: https://store.steampowered.com/app/774181/Rhythm_Doctor/
We also released another rhythm game earlier this year: https://store.steampowered.com/app/977950/A_Dance_of_Fire_and_Ice/

I have waited for years!!! And I dont know how many times I played this games!

One of the best one button games I have ever played.
Man, is really hard to get a rank S in tier 1 (hard). And cool game too!
what happened to the steam release?
Qual Será o Preço do Jogo na Steam?
secret: if you press "J" you enable the multiplayer mode
BUT ITS A SECRET FOR EVERYONE
Why my Rhythm Doctor disappear after concluded?
I was so exited when 2018 was ending, i could see the game being launched and i could buy it and finally enjoy a very nice rhythm game. Did i forgot to check somenthing? is there is any update about the game? or if is it being pushed for 2019. or that the game may not bee totally polished yet, or anything? i dont want to be a rusher here, i know how much HARD and FRUSTRATING it can be to develop a full game. and i preffer to wait this game for and year if it is to be an really Full complete game. But i just wanted to know what happened! Is it gonna be lauched soon? Or it will be launched "soon"?
ooh sorry for missing this comment, we really wanted to hit 2018 but the game still wasn't complete unfortunately. We think it will be just a few more months, but we're releasing a smaller game next week to help people wait in the meantime. happy new year, hope you have a good 2019 and thanks for your support for so long!
When is the game going to release?
The First Boss Was So Hard For Me
I Cant Even Pass It
Hoping So Play Tier 3 :D
Hint: When the narration is saying "The most important thing is:" pause right in the moment, that the game will give you a hint.
I hope that helped!
How do I get the game paid? I want to play so much. ;(
when the game will release??? :0
ja saiu uma musica do ato 2?
Hi, I noticed that a lot of people have the complete game.
I wanted to test the complete game too.
it would be possible to copy me
I put a video on my channel.
I got stuck in lv 4,and I kept counting numbers for the whole night XD
I get an "S" in tier 2( hard), but I CAN NOT pass the tier 5!!!!!!!! It's too hard!!! I've played more than two hours!!!
I don't know the end, but the middle part of tier 5 repeats the same rhythm again and again. Maybe that is why I can't get through................
Whatever, cool game.
I really hope I can try the tier 6 _(:з」∠)_
tier 5 is a bonus and neverending, sorry!! you've basically finished the demo already :D
Cool game! I really like the songs!
This is really cool.But it's too short.，and I hope Chinese players can buy this game at a cheaper price on steam.
Thanks :) yeah China price will be cheaper than US price, its normal for most games on Steam anyway.
Ei,quais são os requerimentos pra aquela tal demo desse jogo com o felps jogou,por favor me diga,espero que você responda logo,mas eu sei que vai dizer pra eu comprar a pre-release mas eu não tenho dinheiro,e isso sera um problema pra mim.
como que vai n editor de fase
Você quer ter acesso ao editor de níveis? você pode baixar ele no nosso servidor do discord: discord.gg/rhythmdr
HOw do you go full screen in the editor.
Fizzd, this game is already amazing! I can't wait for the full release!
Quando for lançado na steam vai ser pago? Quanto vai custar? Eu quero mt comprar o jogo gostei mt do ritmo das músicas
Oi, obrigado pelas palavras gentis! O jogo vai ter o preço de 15 usd, mas se você é do brasil, o preço vai ser provavelmente a metade devido ao sistema de preço regional.
vc é um dos funcionários brasileiros?
Não, na verdade eu sou um dos desenvolvedores, se você estiver interessado em falar com outras pessoas que falam português experimente entrar em nosso servidor no Discord (discord.gg/rhythmdr). Lá você pode experimentar níveis customizados pela comunidade.
fizzd,the game,in full phase,will be paid?
The offline version has a wierd glitch that softlocks the game at the start of the first level. idk what. I LOVE this game btw
S ranked the whole thing multiple times btw
hey, its most likely cause you need to extract the whole folder first before playing it (it can't access the song files if they're still in the zip, thats why). congrats on S ranking everything! if you join the discord you'll get a special role :D
Did now, also got the preorder aswell
wow been a long time, thank you for the preorder! really appreciate your money <3
Hey, fizzd. Can you send me the chords of music "one shift more" for acustic guitar, please?
