Upbeat Bird

By Zach Burnham

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


A fiendishly difficult jumping game in which you can only jump highest on the upbeats relative to a bass line. The closer you are to the upbeat, the higher your jump.

Tap the screen on the upbeats to make the bird fly and avoid the obstacles. Tap closer (in time) to the bass line for a lower jump.

An upbeat is the opposite of a downbeat. Tap your foot to the music playing. Now clap opposite your foot tapping. You're clapping upbeats. Simple, right? Now you're ready to play.

Fun, challenging game

Awesome game that has been making me better at hitting upbeats! I absolutely love playing this game. My friend Caleb built this, and I'm so impressed at how fast and smooth it runs. Incredible work that results in the best musical timing game possible.
