If you enjoy music and tapping to the beat, then you will want to get a copy of Musica Tap for iOS. This is fun, family friendly game that is a lot harder than it looks!
In the game Melomanic, a music fan will show you how to play. If you are familiar with Guitar Hero and similar games, then you have the basic idea to this game. As a song is played, numerous notes will scroll up the screen. As the note hits the stave, you need to tap on the screen. To do well in the game (get a high score) you need to have good timing and tap the screen at the right moment. Do not worry, there is a nicely done tutorial to show you how to do it. I had to go through the tutorial a few times!
The comes with 8 different notes such as simple, double, long, slided, shake and a few more. Each note will require something a different tap. The tutorial will show you some of the notes but not all of them. In addition to the different notes, the game comes with 3 difficulty settings: easy, medium, and hard. I have only played on easy and that was enough for me!
The game will give you a song to play with but the neat thing about the app is that you can use your own music. Any song you have downloaded can be used in the game. The game has a nice area where you can search and sort your music by artist or album. Playing the game with your own music is the best part.
The game takes a lot of practice and concentration. You need to keep your eyes on the screen and tap at just the right time. If you do it right, the app will let you know but if you let a note go by or do not tap it just right, you will know it. Luckily the game has a pause button so you can give your fingers a rest. I forgot to mention the screen is divided in two so you will need to tap on the appropriate side of the screen.
If you really enjoy music and what to have some fun while listening to your favorite tunes, download Musica Tap. There is a free (lite) version you can try before you buy. Rock on!
