Cookie Beats

Cookie Beats

by Upbeet Games

Cookie Beats turns music listeners into real music players! The rules are simple -- Cookies will appear on the grid in time with the music. When the cookie timer has expired it's time to tap! The better the timing, the higher the points, but the best reward is the beautiful music produced from your finger tips! This was inspired by my experience teaching music technology in schools, community centers, educational music theory software, like Music Ace, and popular music games. (Watch Video)
