Built from the ground up to be as accessible as possible, this nostalgic rhythm-based game demands from players only to have a good sense of rhythm, and if they don’t have it, this Funkin game for macOS can help them develop it in style.
The story of the Friday Night Funkin’ game is centered on Boyfriend and Girlfriend, two characters that want to kiss but cannot do so because the Girlfriend’s father is an evil rocker who would do everything in his power to kill Boyfriend. In order to defeat her father and his minions, Boyfriend of course uses the power of music and dance.
All that player has to do is to press main control buttons at specific times when the game asks him to do so with visual on-screen cues, all the while collecting points and rewards every time the keypress matches the currently active rhythm beat. On-screen beat arrows will move on the screen from side to side, toward the left when the Boyfriend is winning, and more toward the right when he is losing. The overall battle meter on the bottom of the screen determines who will win at the end of the song.
- Easy-to-follow game mechanics
- Friendly and easy controls
- Highly entertaining songs
All in all, fans of titles such as PaRappa The Rapper and Dance Dance Revolution will immediately feel at home with this fun and engaging music game title. The only controls that are vital to the gameplay are WASD/Arrow keys that are used for executing proper music beats. Music volume can be changed with “–“ and “+”, while muting and unmuting all sounds can be done with “0”.
While Friday Night Funkin’ can be played online in a browser, it should be noted that the online version is about 160MB which means that users with slower internet will have to wait for a while any time they visit the game’s page and want to play. Thankfully, a local Mac client version of the game is also offered, enabling players to put the entire game on their local storage and take full advantage of instant load times. Seasoned Mac programmers can also take advantage of the full source code of this game, enabling them to tweak it or expand it however they wish.
Friday Night Funkin’ is 100% FREE and is optimized for any modern version of macOS and can also be played online straight from inside the browser window.
