What Is Bell Choir?

Bell Choir is a Guitar Hero-style rhythm game. Colored spheres travel down the “lanes” to you. You have to hit the right keys which correspond to the lane at the right time.

A correct note will heal you, but an incorrect note will deal damage. If you take too much damage, you will have to sit out the rest of the round.

Turn Down Your Graphics Settings

Set your graphics to “Best Performance.” This makes it easier to see the white border where you need to click the key for the correct timing.

Align Your Screen

Zoom out all the way. Adjust your position so that your character is facing the exact center.

Set Your Fingers

Place your fingers on the 1-4 and 6-9 number keys as if you were playing a piano.

And Go!

This takes a bit of practice. Even experienced players need a warm-up of a few rounds. Don’t panic, relax, breathe, and click the notes when the ball crosses the white line. You’ll get the hang of it in no time.
