Three beautiful rhythm games that will distract you from work

We all know that a day at work can be long and bland. 

Never fear, however, we have a list of breathtakingly beautiful rhythm games that will undoubtedly spice up your day, and make it infinitely less productive. 

Here are three rhythm games to distract you from work: 


This game features 200 songs and 400 variations, including many from famous composers around the world.

It has a beautiful hand-drawn art style and features a full campaign.

Players are challenged to tap the notes as they move through a shifting line and there are more than nine difficulty levels.

The game brings in songs from various music genres including pop, jazz, trance and drum 'n bass.

Users can also connect to Facebook to show off their Cytus skills.


This game is also from the team behind Cytus.

Deemo is a hybrid of a music rhythm game and an urban fantasy, with hand-drawn art, story-telling gallery and real instrumental feedback of piano key sound.

The story follows Deemo, a mystic character who lives in solitude. 

A little girl falls from the sky, not knowing who she is, where she comes from. To help the little girl back to her world, Deemo comes to realise a tree keeps growing tall on top of the piano whenever it plays and that it might be the key. 

This game comes with 40 free music tracks in story mode with a lot more available to be purchased.


Dynamix is a hardcore mobile music game and perhaps the most challenging game on this list.

Dynamix introduced a new style of music game which combines a lot of classic features into one intense experience.

Its triple-dropping track design provides a more rhythmical and varying play style. 

The aim is to make players feel like they are composing the song during gameplay. 

The first release version of Dynamix includes more than 20 original songs.

Hands-on review: Logitech G502 HERO gaming mouse
My favourite feature of the G502s is the ‘Sniper’ button, which is found on the left hand side of the device. When held, this lowers the DPI and allows you to achieve maximum accuracy whilst honing in on a kill on your favourite FPS title.
