Friday Night Funkin’ is a fun rhythm game and what’s available to play in the free version of the game can keep you up all night. There’s a lot to keep you entertained for a long time, as there are plenty of songs for you to listen to — and flex your fingers for — to. But for a community, the end of Friday Night Funkin’ is merely the beginning.
Practice Right – Friday Night Funkin’
It won’t happen if you practice it wrong. Playing poorly or on a difficult level that you weren’t prepared for will only get you stuck in those bad patterns and habits.
Make sure you’re playing fresh, focused, and with the aim of getting better. This applies to any game. Play something else if you’re too tired to put in the effort. There’s nothing wrong with setting goals and relaxing with a video game, but make sure it’s not with a game where you’re working to get better.
Start On Easy, Repeat Levels
This seems like an extremely basic tip, but let’s start from Easy if you don’t understand the game yet! I play most games on Easy and that’s how I always recommend starting. There’s nothing wrong with playing a lower difficulty game.
Repeat the levels on Easy until you feel comfortable and increase the difficulty as you see fit.
Try Again Without Sound
Friday Night Funkin’ has some really great tracks, making it easy to get lost in the mix. While this may seem counter-intuitive if you find yourself doing poorly in a particular week, try again without sound.
Turn down the volume and only pay attention to the notes on the screen. This may seem counter-intuitive, but sometimes music can distract us from the notes, instead of following what’s on the screen.
Bring back the tunes after your finger can play through the notes. You might be surprised how much help this can be.
Play The Way You Want
You may prefer to play with the keyboard — and there’s nothing wrong with that — but it’s a good idea to know all the options available. Friday Night Funkin’ supports most controllers if you want to lay back and play with the D-Pad.
On the other hand, Friday Night Funkin’ is also compatible with the Dance Pad; That’s actually how we found out there’s an entire Dance Pad section on Itch.io. A lot of game stores have PC Dance Pad peripherals for games like Dance Dance Revolution, and they’re usually pretty cheap.
WATCH STREAMS – Friday Night Funkin’
Watching others play and knowing what works for them — and what doesn’t — can help you improve your game. You can even weigh in and come up with your own strategies as you watch others play — you might discover a little detail that can take your game to the next level.
Streamers, too, will often play modified versions of games because these are harder and faster, or because it copies the look and feel of other games, such as Night in the Woods.
Just go to YouTube and enter ‘Friday Night Funkin’ Mods’ and see what the community has been creating — you can even discover new games to play yourself. Modifiers are constantly creating new content and it will only grow as the expanded version comes out as it makes editing even easier.
