Help octopuses Ocho and Verde find their mutual groove. Look out for the scary spiky pufferfish, and hit the beat for extra points as you lead them over the seafloor! Tentango is a rhythm game for two players.

The leading player signals which way to step (right, left, up) on their turn.

If the following player inputs the same pattern on their turn,
 the couple takes the step!

Different or no input leads to a miss.
Hit the same beat for extra points, and keep up the
good tentaclework for a combo!

Remember to avoid the  pufferfish! Hitting one will break your combo.
