Created for a Mini Competition at the Game Maker Games forum, block0man's Note Rider is an interactive .mod player/visualizer, that has a pretty cool concept. By holding the X key, players can capture a sound wave, and then press Z to use the beats from that wave to shoot. There aren't any enemies to shoot, although you can blast away at any un-captured waves along the way. Note Rider comes with a selection of .mod music built in, but players can add their own .mod files through the game's "music" directory. I think an expanded version of this would be fantastic. Maybe some procedurally generated enemies, a sound wave mechanic (where bullets wouldn't hit if you're on the same color as the enemy) perhaps?
