DragonForce - Frets On Fire

Frets on Fire - Guitar Game - Alternative to Guitar HeroFrets on Fire (abbreviated FoF) is a free, open-source Finnish music video game created by Unreal Voodoo. Players use the keyboard to play along with markers which appear on screen, with the aim to score points, achieve a high point multiplier, and complete a song.  Frets on Fire was the winner of the Assembly 2006 game development competition.

The game is written in the Python programming language, and is licensed under the GNU General Public License, although the game incorporates other free and open-source code under other licenses. The game's included song files and some internal fonts are proprietary, and their redistribution is not permitted outside of the Frets On Fire executable.


Frets on Fire has received generally positive reviews in a variety of publications. Released for competition at Assembly, it won first place among its competition. As a free, open source game, it has not received as much attention from mainstream review sites, but many niche game sites as well as open source game review sites have discussed it, averaging between 7 and 8 out of 10. Gamespot's user ratings give the game an 8.1 as of November 2008 other sites such as Download.com average lower, around 3.5/5. However, because of the cross-platform nature of the game, it has garnered fans from both Linux and Mac  gaming communities as well. Frets On Fire was included on the show "Click".
