Gitaroo Man

Moby ID: 7498

Description official descriptions

In this strange music rhythm game, you play Gitaroo-Man as you go against various music themed villains. The game puts a new twist on music games as you not only have to time button presses but you have to move the analog stick around in a radar circle to follow a line that passes through the center point. You can play up to 4 players using the multitap and choose from a variety of characters, songs, and locales.

1001 Video Games

Gitaroo Man appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


Even though the character's name is printed out as "U-1", and everyone calls him "You-One"... his real name is "Yuuichi". 1 is pronounced as "Ichi" in Japanese. "U-1" is a nickname given to people named Yuuichi in Japan, so this little detail is just a badly handled localization.
