Browser games don’t offer too much variety at times. It’s mostly idle clickers, short platformers, or puzzle games. This is where Super Guitar Maniac Deluxe 4 comes in. This game is one whopper of a game, and it’s a rhythm game! It’s like playing a smaller version of Guitar Hero with some great songs that can be found around the internet. It’s not every day that you’ll find rhythm games for your browser, and Super Guitar Maniac Deluxe 4 fills that hole quite nicely with a greatly polished game.
So Super Guitar Maniac Deluxe 4 is a guitar rhythm simulator game that plays like most of the guitar sim games. You’ll be given a long bar with buttons that will glide through that bar. Pressing the button at the right time (which should be at the darker side of the bar) will gain you points. Gain points in one song to earn stars that can unlock even more songs. The more stars you get, the more songs you get to play! And believe me, all of the songs are very good. There are two options to each song. You can play them in either Amateur or Pro mode, amateur being the easy way to playing it (gives you less notes to play and a more lenient timing in button presses) and Pro being a harder mode, but with more rewards (getting star in pro will give you the star in amateur, too). The controls are pretty easy to learn, but the game is really hard to master. All you need is your keyboard. The arrow keys and the 1, 2, 3, and 4 keys on your keyboard will be the notes that will glide through the screen. The number keys are hold keys where you’ll need to hold the button until the bar is finished. The arrow keys are one press keys that you’ll need to time correctly to get a good score. There’s also a boss battle where a boss will have an HP bar that goes down everytime you hit a note. Boss mode unlocks the different guitars in the game, so try to collect them all.
