Guitar Geek is a take on the popular Guitar Hero series. In this lite, but equally engaging flash game, players use the “a,” “s,” “d,” and “f” keys to play a note. Notes move down the virtual fretboard until they reach the guitar’s bridge. This is where timing becomes important. The same letters (asdf) are located at the bottom of the screen (at the bridge). Once the notes moving down the fretboard appear on top of the corresponding notes on the instrument’s bridge players must press the key in order to receive a “perfect” or “nice” note. The more consecutive perfect notes the player strikes, the higher the score and the more bonuses and combos players receive. Of course, good timing, and precise key strokes are necessary for success in Guitar Geek. Before the song begins, players are given the song’s length, the number of notes, the tempo, and the players ranking and top combos from previous attempts. To clear a stage, players must keep the “skill bar” half full by the time the song is over. If they fail to keep the bar full, they will have to restart the game. Though there are only a few songs to choose from, Guitar Geek is a great flash adaption of the guitar hero model and suitable for children ages 4 and up.
