Game Description

This rhythm game follows the exploits of U-1, an awkward elementary school student with a secret identity. He transforms into Gitaroo Man, a musical superhero of sorts who defeats foes with a futuristic electric guitar. His mission is to defend his people against an evil family. Luckily, Gitaroo Man is not alone. Fighting by his side is a dog named Puma who gets in on the action by transforming into a robotic beast. The object of the game is to play the right notes at the right time with the music provided, which proves to be trickier than it seems. The storyline is helped along by cutscenes as it progresses through 10 levels of varying music genres. Unlike most games, Gitaroo Man requires extensive use of the analog stick and controller buttons simultaneously.
