How to Play
Put the band together while avoiding hazards. Shock the cops. Then go on stage and perform.
Starting the Game
Select the gray and black PLAY button on the game loading screen to visit the game’s welcome screen.
The welcome screen serves as a level select screen.
Initially only the first level is available.
Each time you complete a level it unlocks the subsequent level. You can replay previously beat levels at any time.
Your web browser automatically saves your game progress.
The welcome screen contains a sound control button in the upper left corner and a reset game button in the upper right corner.
Tap any key to start a level or complete a level.
Move around the playing field using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
You can also use the WASD keys to move if you prefer.
This game was designed primarily for desktop devices.
Controls & indicators
The upper right corner of the game shows how many police officers there are on the current level & how many you have hit while you had “ON FIRE!” status.
When you are “ON FIRE!” it shows at the top center of the screen.
The lower left corner of the game has a level select button.
The lower right corner of the game has a restart level button.
You move to the rhythm of the music in whichever direction you press.
You move until you run into something or manually choose to change directions. In this regard the game is similar to snake, however you can do a 180 degree movement in this game & are not penalized for running into yourself.
If you have other bandmates behind you they will act like a tail like in the classic game Snake, so when you run into an obstacle you may need to keep moving to not have them stick out.
Early in the game you move a square at a time.
The game picks up the pace a bit as you get around level 9 & it seems you can move 2 squares at a time unless you are rather fast with changing directions.
Police officers want no part of you putting the band back together.
Until you have assembled your quartet if the police run into you or any band member connected to you then you lose.
When you get the band fully formed you achieve “ON FIRE!” state, which enables you to bump into the police members to stun them.
When all cops are stunned you can go onto the stage and play for your fans.
While you are “ON FIRE!” cops can not hurt you, but other obstacles can.
This game has sharp spikes and some fireball shooting cannons.
Avoid stepping on the spikes. Sometimes this requires taking a circuitous path.
Avoid running into the fireballs. Sometimes this requires either waiting to assemble the band until you open up a parallel path through the level, or pushing a cone in front of the cannon.
You get an unlimited number of continues in this game, though you lose the progress on the current level when you die.
You die if you (or any of your bandmates which are part of your snake tail) run into spikes, get hit by a fireball, or hit a cop while not “ON FIRE!”
Timing is crucially important in this game.
When timing tight fits try to start from a cell which is close to the path you need to go down.
If timing is too hard it may make sense to avoid collecting members of the band until you have completed the hardest part of the level.
Police walk on a regular path pattern & the fireballs shoot from cannons at a regular cadence, so it should be easy to know which squares are safe & then to time your movements to spend the smallest amount of time necessary on potentially unsafe squares.
Switches are activated when stepped on once. You do not need to place something atop them to activate them.
If a switch is in a tight area consider activating it solo before adding other band members.
If a switch opens up a safer path through the level then minimize how many times you cross through fireball areas.
After you collect band members those band members become part of your tail and their safety is your responsibility.
If you pass through an area with fireballs then stop, make sure you move far enough parallel to the fireballs that all of your band members have made it through.
The game is suited for players of all ages who like simple puzzle games & level escape games.
The game has no adult themed content.
