Actually this concept has some huge potential. It really needs dynamic music (something similar to Lead), I can't stress that enough, but I'm sure you already have it planned. Also, this could use some visual sprucing up. Flashing colors, special effects. Basically whatever you can wrap your brain around that could 'sync' with the gameplay.


Also, have you considered giving some slack based on how many consecutive "notes" you hit? Like say I miss two notes early on, and I get a good 30+ combo going, I should probably get some X's erased. Think of like in Guitar Hero or DDR (iirc) where you're allowed to miss so many notes before your 'meter' drops. Perhaps the difficulty could become ramped up by spacing the 4 boxes closer together, adjusting the speed at which they travel, or both.


You could explore quite a few gameplay enhancements to keep this a very enjoyable game. I look forward to future versions.

You might want to make it start only after hitting the fire button. If you played this on a real Atari 2600 and reached over to hit Reset, you'd be losing before you could even grab the joystick with both hands.
