Any non-AGA guitar hero clones?

Well the C64 has a guitar hero clone, admittedly needs a guitar to play it.

But i was wondering, AGA users have tracker hero or whatever, that has several control methods which is great, but is there an OCS/ECS GH clone for the Amiga?

I think the plan is to eventually make an OCS-compatible version of Tracker Hero further down the track, but apart from that the only similar game I can think of is Klax!

But it's not even the nineties anymore, so it may not be time for Klax.

Mmh well Klax is a good game, but apart from the view it is in no point similar to a Guitar Hero clone

Yeah of course, because Guitar Hero is a Klax clone, not the other way around

Seriously though, I think it would be great to make our own new OCS Guitar Hero clone, but different to Tracker Hero. I think we could use pre-recorded music as 8SVX samples rather than mods, and fill it with independent music from musical artists online.

Of course it would be a big download and would have to be HDD/CD-only, but it's totally doable with the Amiga's hardware. A dancing game that uses a vector shaped dancer on the background playfield with the direction arrows moving up or down the screen on the front playfield could work too.

Should make a track editor for it too, like Frets on Fire for the PC, basically on that one you set a OGG soundtrack to play, and then you add the notes in yourself, takes a couple of hours to make an average length song sound good, but it does work, and its totally awesome playing the song to Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 64 on a guitar..... :P Possibly a bit out of the Amigas depth though.

If it featured music from Amiga games that would be cool, but possibly they're still copyrighted?
