I've seen only one comment spelling "rhythm" correct... are y'all ok? 💀


FullKaitoMode

Game targeted towards children usually gets children that can't spell


RedditPersonNo1987

children shouldnt be on reddit


JodGaming

Shouldn’t


flavioneto002

OMG GUYS, THEY DID THE THING

Wojtek1250XD

That's a mispell, not a joke...


meme_r_lakko

Most probably it is an intentional one


DEADLOCKEDFORLIFE

By the massive ratio, I think not


halaayman

Yeah. Reddit is 13+ anyways.


LordLapo

Really? There's literally just porn subs, you would think it's 18+ minimum


soapyarm

That's why NSFW content is exclusively 18+


halaayman

Good thing that nobody would think to visit them!


Siphonic45

13-17 i would still consider being a child ngl


halaayman

A child and a young grownup.

_beanbagss

Why are you on reddit then?


Global_Yam_8488

its only children on reddit


Wojtek1250XD

Teenagers to be exact, Reddit contains people pretty much from early teenage to full adulthood. If you are looking for what a child-filled social app looks like then TikTok is what you're looking for...


Picklerick-__-

nou geromedre dahs plaers caan splel


halaayman

But a majority of GD players are 13+.


Nicc48

I don't think so (the average player seems very young, and there are tons of recent levels that look like kids made them), but that's probably the case in the GD related social media.


halaayman

Really? Never knew that.


Nicc48

Maybe the bad recent level count is inflated by the fact that making a bad map is easier, but for every 1 good map, you find about 25 bad maps that were almost certainly made by kids.


halaayman

Huh. Recent tab does look like the kiddie tab.


Nicc48

It's inevitable tbh.


halaayman

yes.


OkPackage4856

Ah yes, calling a group of people children because they misspell a single hard word ... thats immature


FullKaitoMode

I'm not calling the gd community children, I'm saying that a game targeted towards children attracts children

Alright

cheese_dude

Why do kids get so offended when you say gd aint a rhythm game? Its not like im saying it sucks. Just saying what kind of game it is. Music based platformer.


soapyarm

I don't think anyone should get offended, but they have the right to be irritated since it is inaccurate and there are people spreading inaccurate information. Music based platformer is correct; rhythm game isn't


WholesomeMemer420

FINALLY SOMEONE HAS A BRAINCELL IN THIS SUB


megaman_main

Because everyone is against the idea that is could ever *possibly* be a rhythm game because it doesn't force you to follow the exact rhythm of the level.


dry-soup

cheese_dude

No it is not 💀


vampireflutist

Not all levels are synced to music, therefore it isn’t primarily rhythm based. Having rhythm based levels is helpful and much preferred, but it isn’t integral to the gameplay, unlike OSU and FNF and other actual rhythm games.


cheese_dude

Even the ones that are sync aren't as synced as we may think. Rhythm games are built to be near perfectly synced when creating a custom file. Like something that automatically finds the bpm and creates the ol lines of every beat and so


meme_r_lakko

And half the songs are so bad i play sound of and listen to my playlist


megaman_main

If the game is built around rhythm, it's a rhythm game JSAB and GD are rhythm games People need to stop gatekeeping an entire fucking genre


vampireflutist

It’s not built around rhythm, that’s the point. Hell, Rob’s own levels aren’t very well synced, and how do you sync most ship gameplay without orbs? GD is a platformer with music that sometimes syncs. FNF and OSU are rhythm games that *require* sync. The sync is the point of the game. The sync is not the point of GD.


NeverStaged

I prefer the term “rhythm based platformer”


RedditPersonNo1987

"rhythm-based action platform" robtop on fucking steam


x_Calamitys

only correct answer


CavoTheCat

Its not a platformer. Platformers you can move freely, back and forth but GD moves at a set speed. Having platforms =/= platformer


lGream_Sheo

It's autoscroller platformer


halaayman

2.2: Allow me to introduce myself! For your information , if you're gonna say "wElL 2.2 iSnT oUt yEt"... GDPS 2.2: Allow me to introduce myself too!


CavoTheCat

2.2 isnt out, GDPS is a seperate game. But yes it will have a platformer mode in 2.2


halaayman

Well , it's simply a communtiy-made version of 2.2. And it has platformer mode.


CavoTheCat

I know what it is, and its a different game. Its not Geometry Dash


halaayman

You're right and wrong.


DeadVoxelx

Yeah sorry its Geometry Dash Subzero, sorry we weren't so damn specific

miZuEUW

It's not a rythm game. RobTop himself has stated so.


xle3p

Yup. Something people continuously miss in this discussion is that GD has no sync tools (aside from those click lines, but c'mon). The game doesn't even have AV sync, let alone tempomapping. With 2.2 coming up, robtop's also completely destroying any remaining sync ability, outside of playing from start. Not only is GD not a rhythm game, robtop doesn't remotely want it to be.


Daldoul69

Wait ... Gd is a game ?

One time I heard someone make the argument that not only is gd a rhythm game, it also isn’t even a platformer.


redokev

nah bro its a fps game smh


thebigbuttlol

i say its a music heavy auto-scrolling platformer but that really doesnt roll off the tongue as well


soapyarm

Well, it's still more accurate than calling it a rhythm game


Salabdul81

it is a "rhythm-based action platformer" -robtop on steam


halaayman

Well , GD is a rhythm game and it is not at the same time. It's both not a rhythm game and a rhythm game.


ShredderOfficial

It's a rhythm based game, but music based would be more correct because some levels don't even really sync


halaayman

Yep.


Wojtek1250XD

It's a "music-based platformer" actually, it has NOTHING to do with rhythm by default. The way to introduce the rhythm is to make a level such as Rhythm Doctor... GD offers so many posibilites with it's editor system, that it can literally go 3D. If we are classifying GD then we first need to classify separate levels into groups, and give the groups the names they deserve


mybrotherisagoat

**Inhales** Geometry Dash (formerly known as Geometry Jump) is a rhythm-based platform game made by Robert Topala (also known as RobTop or RubRub), a Swedish male developer that is also known for making Boomlings, and the Geometry Dash Spinnof games; like GD World, GD Meltdown, and GD Subzero, not forgetting to mention a light version of the game: GD Lite.


-rabotnik-

Gd is both a platformer and a rhythm game. Saying gd is not a rhythm game but a platformer is like saying fallout 4 is not a action RPG but a post apocalypse. It's fucking both. Games can be of several genres at once.


cheese_dude

Music based platformer. Its not a rhythm game. Even synced levels arent that sync. Games like Etterna or stepmania have it when you create a file with another app like arrow vortex it finds the bpm of the song and lets you chart accurately in sync. Unlike gd where its all by ear.


SpheredRock0404

Nobody is saying that being a platformer and a rhythm game are mutually exclusive, we're just saying that it isn't a rhythm game because the music doesn't inherently influence the timing required in gameplay. Sure, there are levels that are synced to the music well, but you can just as easily play said levels without the music, because the music is secondary and compliments the gameplay. In rhythm games, timing to the music is the primary goal. Playing something like osu without music is possible, but much harder than playing geometry dash without music.


ad1st___

In games like osu! the game is intended to sync to the music. In Geometry Dash, music sync is encouraged but good maps can exist without good music sync. So, Geometry Dash is not a rhythm game.


dry-soup

[null]


ad1st___

In osu! you are meant to sync to the music. That is the sole purpose of the game, to click the circles to the beat. In Geometry Dash, plenty of good levels have been made without music sync and it is not actively encouraged nor intended to do so.

That's a really bad analogy


RedditPersonNo1987

"If touhou is a shoot-em-up undertale is too" there i fixed it


Siphonic45

a game thats based on rhythm and something else isnt a rhythm game. a rhythm game is something like osu or fnf or dance dance revolution because they are ONLY about the beat and rhythm in the songs that they use. In GD theres a little cube that hops on platforms, while auto scrolling, in a way that it CAN be rhythm based, but sometimes its not, depending on the creator of the level, so its a "rhythm based auto scrolling platformer".


TheOssified

Technically you can make a level and not have it synced to the song at all, but that would be boring. For me, the appeal to play GD is like 70-80% in the fact that your inputs sync to the music.


Voidbeanz

It’s a rhythm platformer


AlanNEO

Pxttxrn Sxxkxr might be the only level that would count as a rhythm level


Siphonic45

theres tons of others bruh lmfao


AlanNEO

Which ones?


Siphonic45

taurine, in rainbows, new record, agite, wasureta is very sync based, overkill, the furious by knobbelboy is also very sync based, explicit also very sync based, dolos is also very sync based, energy flow, generic, spectrum surge II, and literally other hundreds and hundreds not counting upcoming sync levels lmao


ObeyTime

yes it is. gd is a *rhythm based platformer game* or something like that

Bockerson

Some levels sync with the music, but it's really not a focal point most of the time. Robtop specifically calls it a "rhythm-based platformer", not just a rhythm game.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Vaeman07

That's not how it works, the game has to be built FOR rhythm to BE a rhythm game. Osu and guitarhero were games that relied on rhythm in the 1st place because that was the intention of the creators to why they made those games. Robtop however, made it to be a platformer more than a rhythm game. Sure some levels rely on rhythm, but that doesn't change the entire game's purpose of what type of game it should be.


Mysticalboom

gd has rhythm levels but it isn't a rhythm game. you can make minecraft parkour sync to music but it won't make it a rhythm game either.


[deleted]

[удалено]


FullKaitoMode

What? Your argument is pretty baseless and not all games with checkpoint mechanics are souls-like. Souls like also requires the game to have a high difficulty. Rhythm games have more than one criteria, and GD doesn't fit said criteria.


Mysticalboom

1. how does that relate to gd not falling under the definition of rhythm game 2. you spelled rhythm wrong


chopsticknoodle

you really chose the worst hill to die on

its the dependent on music like a rythm games tho????? alot of rated levels skip notes or just dont Sync at all lul

[удалено]


[deleted]

"Rhythm game or rhythm action is a genre of music-themed action video game that challenges a player's sense of rhythm. Games in the genre typically focus on dance or the simulated performance of musical instruments, and require players to press buttons in a sequence dictated on the screen." literally NONE of this sounds like geometry dash in any way shape or form. GD is a sidescrolling platformer. not a rythm game


[deleted]

[удалено]


EnheGD

Not a rhythm game


FullKaitoMode

The gameplay is based on sight mostly though, and no GD levels ever have required the player to have a rhythm based timing, just a platforming timing.


ItzSnowGamingYT

dude, it’s not a rhythm game. If that were the case rated stuff WOULD ALL be related to the music in some way shape or form. Gd is a MUSIC PLATFORMER


RedditPersonNo1987

that dosent mean shit, shut up


RedditPersonNo1987

it is a ***RHYTHM-BASED ACTION PLATFORMER***


Main_Lake_4053

It’s primary focus is Rhythm Platformer. It doesn’t have to be a Rhythm. But it’s one of the biggest roles in the game, so I consider it a Rhythm game.


Prior-Mango-6154

I'd say yesn't because it's a gray area it can be but it also can don't


regular-guy-2363

Um rub rub can you make all the levels he plays extreme


shiftyAmeoba25

Its like America, its mixed


lool8421

some levels are, but most aren't, which kinda sucks since if a level is synced very well, it plays completely differently


cyhggd

That_One_Guy_Flare

It’s what’s referred to as a “music-driven auto-running platformer”

I think of it as a pseudo-rhythm game


Guigamer12

I've seen gdtubers building with a playlist in the background. I cant even build my level without memorising the entire song first. How can they do it? Music is important over gameplay so, yes. GD is a Rhythm-based game
