How to play Paglano

Paglano is a shooting game. Playing the right key will shoot the corresponding note. And your score increases every time you play a right key.

Check out the steps below to see how you can play it.

#1
Choose to play the game or to train your skills

First, decide if you want to play Paglano right away or if you want to train one or more levels first.

Play or train

Then choose 'low notes' to use left side of the keyboard. Or choose 'high notes' to use the right side. After that, the first level will start.

Choose left or right

#2
Shoot the notes

Playing Paglano is easy. Just shoot the green note from the staff by playing the right key.

#3
Use the tip

You can use a tip if you don't know which key to play. If you use a tip, the right key gets green. But it also costs you some scored points.

#5
Your shooting balls

When you start a new game, you'll get 5 fresh shooting balls. Touching a key on the piano will fire a shooting ball to the staff with a little white 'hammer'.

Every time you play a wrong key, you lose a shooting ball...

Sharps and flats

In the first level you are using the white keys only. But every time you enter a new level, there will be added one green sharp or one green flat. A sharp means that you have to play the key on the right of the white key. A flat means that you have to play the key on the left of the white key.

In the highest and most difficult level you have to play the notes with six sharps followed by six flats.

Limited time to shoot a note

A thin green bar indicates the time you have left to shoot a note. It gets smaller and smaller from right to left and turns slowly into red. When it's almost red, you really should hurry up!

After you have played all 7 levels successfuly, the game starts again in the first level. But now, the available time you have to shoot a note has become much shorter.

Play for the stars!

If you play 7 levels without making a mistake and without using a tip, you earn a permanent star. You can earn up to 5 stars.

You can train all the levels one by one before you jump into the game. Select the number of flats or sharps you want to pratice. And when you feel comfortable enough, just quit the training and go for that (new) highscore!
