In Head-Banger, an avatar stands on the stage and bangs his head to one of four songs. Regarding gameplay, this is a standard rhythm game: on the top of the screen, there are four lines corresponding to the four buttons of the Xbox 360 gamepad (alternatively the Guitar Hero controller is also supported). Button icons come in from the right of the screen and when they reach a certain point, the player needs to press the button. A correct press rewards points (consecutive ones combo points) and a missed one retracts from the health bar. The game is over when the song is finished or health runs out.
