Celebrate one year of rotary rhythm action with Rotaeno free download

Dream Engine Games’ debut title shook up the world of mobile rhythm games last year and to celebrate its success, there’s a Rotaeno free download period.

Premium rotary rhythm game Rotaeno is celebrating its first anniversary with a range of updates, community events, and a 48-hour Rotaeno free download period. If you’ve not tried the game before, now’s your chance to see how it stands up to our list of the best rhythm games on mobile.

While there’s plenty of mobile rhythm games out there, Dream Engine Games’ Rotaeno reimagines the genre using your smartphone’s gyroscope. It sucks you into an immersive arcade rhythm game experience where your skill is determined by precisely-timed rotations of your mobile device to hit the notes. The developers describe it as “like piloting a spaceship through a cosmic storm of meteors,” where instead of avoiding obstacles, you need to capture them at the right moment.

There’s also a story to enjoy as you aim for full combos. You follow Ilot as she embarks on a cosmic journey in search of her long-lost friend, exploring various planets and growing along the way. The first anniversary update is the perfect time to jump into Ilot’s story.

How do I get the Rotaeno free download?

Rotaeno is available to download for free from May 30 to May 31 on TapTap, the App Store, and Google Play. After this time, Rotaeno returns to its usual price of $2.99.

All available music packs are 50% off until June 13 and the new update introduces a global leaderboard, a friend system, an optional music pack featuring six timeless Vocaloid classics, and much more.

That’s everything you need to know about the Rotaeno free download period. If you’re in the market for more free rhythm action with an immersive story, check out our Project Sekai characters, Project Sekai cards, and Project Sekai events guides.
