Play OverviewPlay Overview

Headbangers Rhythm Royale (2023) is an online multiplayer rhythm-action game where you play a pigeon and compete in wacky musical minigames. You press buttons in time with the beat to copy dance moves and sing along to classic tunes to score higher than the other competitors. It stands out for the tongue-in-cheek silliness that upscales Rhythm Paradise's timing challenges with 30 competitors like Fall Guys.

There are 23 minigames that test your reflexes, memorisation, and rhythm. These range from memorising a short series of dance moves and then performing them at just the right time to guessing the instruments you hear as quickly as you can. You're scored against each of the other competitors and the person with the highest score after four rounds wins. If you do well you unlock new outfits, sounds, and actions your pigeon can wear and perform in between rounds.

The result is a party game that leans into its absurd concept to create a comical and wacky game that still requires some skill. Battling to outdo your friends and family makes for a competitive yet still lighthearted and enjoyable experience.
