Tadpole Treble Baton Mini-Plushie Contest

Fellow Tadpoles....lend me your ears,

We have had a successful launch and want to thank you personally! Uriel has been running amok on our Leaderboards with his high and mighty self. In Chiptune Lagoon he has a high score of 187415.

We have two Baton Mini-Plushies ready to mail to anyone who can send me a screenshot of beating this score. It will be super impossible but I believe someone can Treble Charge themselves to victory!

The Contest will end tomorrow, Tuesday at Midnight!

Also, if for some reason you want to order a Baton Plushie yourself they're $6.99 here:

Good Luck,

“Tadpole Treble is a game of the year contender for me. Few games can bring the enjoyment and cheer that this game does. It is clever. It has brilliant design both in levels and gameplay. Its soundtrack is simply enamoring.”
10/10 – GameSkinny

“Tadpole Treble is a truly revolutionary take on rhythm platforming games.”
9/10 – Lazygamer

“Tadpole Treble is a game that surprised me every step of the way. I was thoroughly won over by the winning soundtrack and charming sense of style, and found that I grew attached to this adorable little tadpole. Her journey is harrowing at times, but also full of humor and clever ideas. Tadpole Treble may look simple, but it's actually an action-packed joyride with an emotional punch. This is a strong contender for rhythm game of the year.””
A- – DefunctGames

-The Inner Circle Games Network, 9.4/10

"Tadpole Treble is one of the sweetest games I’ve ever played, despite it being wall-to-wall terror for the poor tadpole."


"It’s the epitome of what an aesthetic and music-focused game should be: simple gameplay made fun by good game design and an outstanding soundtrack."
-Steam reviewer Mo05eman

From the creators of the hit webcomic Brawl in the Family comes the delightfully musical adventure game Tadpole Treble!

As Baton, you’ll literally be “playing along” with the game’s music as you dodge past predators and obstacles who take the place of the notes for that level’s song. Avoid enemies and hit percussive notes on the beat to accumulate points and fill your Treble Charge to blast through anything in your path.

Tadpole Treble features 30 original music compositions, 13 levels, and 5 boss battles. In addition to the story mode, the game includes bonus content such as unlockable music, a large bestiary, game commentaries, and online leaderboards for every level. Best of all is the robust Composition Mode which lets players create their own original levels and music!
