Pulsen is a music and rhythm game which relies on the ability to listen to musical beats and catch notes in accordance to those beats. Much like an electronic whack-a-mole, in Pulsen you time each and every note by tapping a key or pressing a button.

Post news Report RSS Pulsen updated to r0004 on DesuraNET sites

We’ve added many requested features such as timing-based scores, more speed mods, saving modifiers even after closing the game, and a couple new effects while playing charts. You’ll also find two free songs added which were originally going to be in Pulsen: Ultra I.

Posted by on

We've come back with a massive update adding in two new songs, fixing a number of bugs and slowdowns, addings a bunch of new features, and set the foundations of the online system.

You can now update your game using our new updater and re-download purchased DLC using the website.

There were two songs originally intended to be in Pulsen: Ultra I we never did include and instead put them into Pulsen for everyone to enjoy!

We also added a new Intricate Scoring style for those looking for a greater challenge as well as the abilities to choose a speed mod set and save your modifiers even after the game's been closed.

NOTE: For your old Pulsen: Ultra I DLC to work with this new version of Pulsen, you will have to update Ultra I to version r0002. You can get this version by creating an account on our website.
