osu! is a rhythm game based on the gameplay of the popular Nintendo DS series Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! and its overseas counterpart Elite Beat Agents. While trying to keep an authentic feel gameplay-wise, osu! has a wide range of online features, such as player rankings and replay exchange. Also available is a fully functional in-built editor allowing intuitive creation of your own beatmaps, and a quickly growing library of
user-created content - such as skins and beatmaps

It is a rhythmic game for many years. Its main strength is that users can create maps (Osea, difficulties playing) with the song they like, besides that there are endless songs and many users every day.
The main thing is that OSU has four game modes
The first, called Osu!
and abbreviated as STD (Standard) is to use the mouse and keyboard in a coordinated manner in which we move the mouse and taking it to the Circulos Sliders and pressing keys correctly (Z and X by default). The more accurate you are, the more PP will get. Here I leave a video sample
The second, called Taiko
, comes from the classic arcade game super hardcore of Japan, which will have 4 Sonas to hit and from right to left, will come 6 types of objects, which we play (or tappear) at the right time .

The third, called Catch The Beat
, abbreviated as CTB, grab fruit is falling. The goal is to grab all the fruit, but beware, it is not as simple as it seems. It is played with default keys "←" to move the plate (also called Ryuuta) to the left; the "→" to move the Ryuuta to the right; and "Shift" to make the Ryuuta multiply your movement speed while keep pressed this key plus a direction.

Last but not least, the Osu! Mania
, also known as o!m or Mania, thus comes from the classic StepMania. The goal is simple, it is like playing a piano, but in this case we can play with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 keys simultaneously, we also have mode "Co.op "that is up to 18 keys at once with 2 players.
The songs that we have in the game vary mostly between the eastern and western songs, mainly from the east. Has a system called "RANKED Songs" are songs that without PP and are given the "Unranked Songs" that do not give PP. ATTENTION !, the PP is not cumulative, ie if you have 2 songs that give 200pp, 200pp will give the first and the second a percentage, in this case could reach range from 0 to 198pp.
The PP is the system with which you will have a ranking, the more difficult the songs you begin to play (and make full combo) will get more PP. The difficulty of the same is set according to the stars
In STD, a song 2 star can give at most 30pp
In TAIKO, a song can give 2 stars at most 40pp
In CTB, a song 2 stars may give you 60pp
In MANIA, a song 2 stars may give you 30pp
