muBlip Review

Review para9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
muBlip Review

I'm not sure if I've somehow been co-opted in to an educational game while playing muBlip by para9. On the face of it the game is an Ouendan-style rhythm game with fresh electronic chiptune beats, but to mix things up the game uses a Simon-says watch and repeat set up to add an amazing new kind of challenge to the genre. Each track is broken up in to phrases where the player watches the computer play the beat using on screen patterns and then must repeat the phrase as accurately as po…

Radio Flare REDUX Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Radio Flare REDUX Review

The rhythm action genre is a rare one. Aside from Rez not many games have done it well. Radio Flare Redux (RFR) is here to change all that with some good ol fashioned shoot'em up action. Piloting your ship and making waste of all in your path is standard for a shmup but doing it all to the beat of some high quality music makes this quite the experience. RFR uses a duel finger control scheme. Your left thumb controls your ship, while your right locks onto enemies. You can lock onto mul…

BOOM SHAKE Review

Review dooub inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
BOOM SHAKE Review

How many times have you played a rhythm game and thought to yourself, "Man, I wish I was able to play my favourite songs"? Boom Shake by apalms has come to the rescue. On the outside it might look like a Tap Tap Revenge clone using a turntable, but its the ability to create and share level tracks for any piece of music you have on your phone that makes this title stand out. There are five moves when playing a song in Boom Shake. Swipe left or right, turn left or right, or snapping the…

Thumpies Review

Review Big Blue Bubble By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Thumpies Review

Rhythm games are fun right? People like furry creatures right? Well what if there was a game that combined them? Thumpies by Big Blue Bubble is a game where you tap drums or mushrooms and furry heads bounce on them in order to fill a score meter, and eventually create a song. Control consists of tapping the appropriate drum when a Thumpy hits it. If you continue to be accurate in your timing, the Thumpy will become electric and your score will double, completing the current track much…

B-Boy Beats Review

Review Tag Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
B-Boy Beats Review

It's always nice to see new attempts at innovative gameplay within the rhythm genre. B-Boy Beats is a rhythm game where you travel around New York engaging in dance battles with hip hop backing, using your fingers in the place of legs as you cut up the dance mat. Control is very reminiscent of the Ouendan series on the DS. You use your fingers to tap or slide along circles in time with the music, and the better you do, the higher your score and multiplier goes. The controls themselves…

Riddim Ribbon feat. The Black Eyed Peas Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Riddim Ribbon feat. The Black Eyed Peas Review

Tapulous has made some of the better music and rhythm games on the iphone with their well recieved 'Tap Tap Revenge' series. Now they're trying a new take on the rhythm genre with Riddim Ribbon. Similar in look to the indie PC game Audiosurf, players ride a wave of the music chosen, but sadly that's where the similarities end. Players tilt their iphone to move left and right along the track. The aim of the game is to keep on the small road that moves in time to the beat. Along the roa…

Rhythm Racer Review

Rhythm Racer is a free futuristic 3D racing game which combines elements of “F-Zero” and “Guitar Hero” to deliver a fast paced, high volume racing experience which is unlike anything you've ever seen before. The goal of the game is to keep the music flowing and collect points by tiling your iphone and driving your ship through the rings and coloured spheres which appear on the track. Like Guitar Hero, the game will let you miss a few beats, however if you miss…

Hip Hop All Star Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 8 months ago
Hip Hop All Star Review

Slap down the beat, turn up the music and scratch your way to DJ-Stardom with Hip Hop All Star. Starting off as an amateur DJ, the player must scratch and cut their way through each level battling other rival DJs on the way to fulfil their hopes of becoming the next DJ superstar. The controls are very suitable for this style of game. Players must tap their finger on the correct notes as the record spins and hold their finger down on the screen for long notes. Although this sounds like…

Puppy Palooza Review

Review Rock Ridge Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Puppy Palooza Review

The 80s came and left us over a decade ago, but its influences still haunt us today. For better or worse one of those influences is Simon, the electronic "Simon Says". As a toy it has its place in history, but in gaming it has often been part of a greater game and not the whole game. Puppy Palooza by Rock Ridge Games replaces bleeps with barks and a chance to create your own tunes. This is somewhat easier said than done and the controls will make anything other than playing Simon incr…

Tap Tap Revenge 3 Review

Tap Tap Revenge 3 is the latest sequel to the highly popular series of music and rhythm games for the iPhone. Players must tap the targets to the beat of the songs in order to max out their score. If you have played any of the other Tap Tap Revenge games, you’ll have an idea of what is featured here.

LUMINES™ - Touch Fusion Review

Review Q ENTERTAINMENT Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
LUMINES™ - Touch Fusion Review

From its humble and somewhat exciting beginnings on the PSP, Lumines has now found a home on the iPhone. Interestingly, although major publisher Gameloft are producing ports of this rhythm-puzzle game to other mobile devices, the original developer Q Entertainment has taken charge of the iPhone port. Gameplay is similar to a Tetris-style block-matching game with points being scored after a bar sweeps across the screen at a specific rhythm clearing away matching blocks. Combos are scor…
