The Game's Greenlight!
“Pop the bubbles to the music, to paint the perfect picture!”
Ongaku is a uniquely addictive side-scrolling 2D rhythm action game with the infusion of original music and stylised artwork.

  • Help Ongaku match the right colour and steer, for bubbles to pop so paint will appear
  • Paint will colour over the black and the white, restoring the picture to a glorious sight
  • Simply ‘Scoop’ bubbles for a small score, then ‘tap’ to master and grow your score more
  • If things are too easy then step up a gear, 5 difficulties will test your musical ear
  • Follow the story to stop Discord’s evil plans, by travelling through 11 magical lands
  • Get your music and pictures out of the attic, even videos can plug into the Tune-A-Matic
  • Create and share levels, that’s no lie, use the Melody Maker it’s as easy as pie
  • So you want a new look then buy one of these, Theme Packs including Dance, Rock and Zombies!

How many Rythmn Action games out there do you know where you can plug in not just your own music, but also pictures? The game not only lets you play whatever music choice you want with, but it even lets you place your own choice of video or movie in the background too! Check out the SmashMouth Games youtube Channel for videos of this in action:

Owner of the now defunct indie game review site, Indie Theory, here. Huge congrats to you for finally getting greenlit. It has taken far too long in my opinion, but at least Ongaku will finally be on Steam! I do hope people enjoy it, because I sure did.
