While the original Super Crazy Guitar Maniac Deluxe is better described as “Alright Level-Headed Guitar Enthusiast Basic”, Super Crazy Guitar Maniac 2 begins to truly earn its name as the second title in a fantastic series of flash-based music games that are all about the rhythm and the guitar shredding. The usual Guitar Hero format applies to the gameplay but the song selection is varied, the difficulty is challenging, and this time we have some extras to keep us motivated for string-shredding success.

Punk O Matic 2

It’s pretty rare that you get a flash game moving from extremely simple origins to a comprehensive sequel so far removed from the simplicity of its predecessor that you’d struggle to believe they were from the same series if you didn’t know any better. This is what you get with Punk-o-Matic 2 though, which is a music game that is part rhythm-based song challenge and part composition device/basic sequencer. With customisation and content galore this time around, there’s no shortage of punk-related things to do in Punk-o-Matic 2, making it far better than the original.

Pressing the right buttons at the correct time may not sound exciting but when there’s music playing and your musical reputation on the line, it becomes something of a frantic adventure for audio glory.
