Beat Master 3000 is an Adobe Flash rhythm video game developed by Jacob Grahn that was released on 2007-02-16.

Gameplay

Beat Master 3000 Gameplay 2

A user playing R Wine on medium.

Modeled around Dance Dance Revolution, Beat Master 3000 has three songs to choose from along with three types of controls; one using the arrow keys, another for letters and one using the mouse.

Players hit notes as a track plays, with the goal being to hit them once they're in the center of the green line at the top of the screen to earn the most points. Players can choose from multiple difficulty options, which increase or decrease the amount of notes that appear. If they miss or hit a note too early/late, they will receive a lower score and the song will glitch.

Trivia

  • A portion of "Thanks" would later be used as the jiggmin.com pre-loader theme.
  • "R Wine" is titled "Rolley" on Newgrounds, hinting that the song was originally considered for "Rolley-Ball".[1]
    • "R Wine"'s full name is "Rice Wine" as revealed by an old download page on Jiggmin's website.[2]
  • Each song contains three hidden text strings for each difficulty level filled with random quotes that can only be viewed in the code.
    • Beat Master:
      • "Only go out on Teusdays, because that\'s when the really evil bad guys are gone.","How many licks does it take to get to the center of a totsie pop? Is it twelve?"
      • "The small man wimpered. Why did he have to cut lemmons while he had this blasted papercut? It\'s sooo unfair!"
      • "Why are comic book names so silly? Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Sandman, Iron Man...? Upcoming heroes: Kangarooman, Manman, Normalman, Mailman, Alienman, and Cheese."
    • Rice Wine:
      • "Aliens are invading, you better run and hide. Now they have found you, you\'re brains will surely be fried"
      • "Don\'t mess with Derron Verdriet. He will hit you in the head really hard if you do. Seriously, he will. Or maybe he won\'t. It\'s all up to him really. Guess it depends on his mood and tolerence."
      • "Gibberish is a generic term in English for talking that sounds like speech, but has no actual meaning such as the mave\'s rint ist slanpehed up uthep yongrish. This meaning has also been extended to meaningless text or gobbledygook: hogtdkypots","Silly painter man seeks solitude in the Canadian wilderness. Overly opaque peanuts are all the rage in Sydney. Potatoes contain starch. The man decided to ask why now... shortly after he wished he had not. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.","Time to come up with a piece of text that is exactly two hundred and forty three characters long! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen :)"
    • Thanks:
      • "See spot run. See spot run oh so far. Faaaar!","super-cala-fargilistic-expi-ala-docus. Wheee!","I want to give Jiggmin all of my possesions!!","Werecat? What was that kid smoking? Werecat??","Yo Mama\'s so Web 2.0, you all call her Mothr!","What did the blonde call her pet zebra? Spot."
      • "When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative. Quote from Martin Luther King Jr","Some people collect marbles, others collect pictures. Me? I collect pens. Not on purpose, but I do have a lot of them. No pencils.","It\'s really pretty difficult to come up with bits of text that are exactly the right length. Babbling randomly seems to work best.","She sold sea shells by the sea shore. Six thick thistle sticks. Six thick thistles stick. Some tongue twisters for your enjoyment."
      • "Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"
  • Due to a bug within Flash, it's impossible to play the official game with Flash Player versions above 19, as the game only reads their first number (currently "2" instead of "20") when it runs a check, rendering it unplayable. The game can be modified to remove the check altogether, though.
