In the spirit of all the other "bemani" games, this version has the player using a 24-key keyboard and effector wheel. Press the keys in tune to the music (and when indicated, spin the wheel) as the bars fall to the bottom of the screen. Complete the song without missing too many of the notes, and you can play another song.

Game Introduction

You have DJed, you have danced, but have you played the piano? Konami does it again with Keyboardmania! Play the songs by pressing the keys and spinning the effect wheel as the bars fall to the bottom of the screen. Hit them perfectly (or at least somewhat perfectly) and you can choose a new song to play.

Game Play

Select a song, then play! As the bars fall down the screen, press the corresponding key on the 24-key keyboard, or spin the effect wheel when needed.
