|Available In: App Store||Price: Free|
Thanks to DJContagious for this review of Tap Tap Revenge!! Tap Tap Revenge by Tapulous, is a remake of Nate True’s original Installer app, Tap Tap Revolution. Tapulous bought it off of him, so there are no legal suits involved here!
TTR is a FREE app in the App Store, under the Games category. The app is really nice looking, with everything functioning professionally and smoothly. When you open the app, you will a screen that says “Tap Tap”. That will soon expand to the Main Menu which includes the options One Player, Two Player, Tutorial, Download More Tracks, and Options.
One Player allows you to play by yourself in portrait mode. When you press it, you get the options; Easy, Medium, Hard, and Extreme Tracks…each with 2 tracks put in already (except Extreme, which only has one). When you select a song, a screen similar to the old TTR shows up with the song playing in the background. When you tap a note correctly, the line in which you tapped starts to “wiggle” in an electric way. When you miss a note, the iPhone vibrates (iPod Touch does not vibrate) and the word “MISS” appears in big red letters.
Two Player brings up the same levels of difficulty, except when you start “tapping”, you will notice another tap bar across from you.
Tutorial teaches you the basics of the app and how to play, for new-comers.
Download More Tracks allows you to improve your song database with more songs to tap to, however right now there are no available tracks to download, for any difficulty, so enjoy what you have. :)
Options brings up 2 options: Shakes and Tapulous Profile. Shakes allows you to enable or disable the tilt feature in game play, when you can tilt a certain direction instead of tapping the line. Tapulous Profile brings you to a screen titled “Identity”. Here you can enter a Username, E-Mail, and even attach a photo.
Currently there is a contest being held for TTR. If you enter an Identity, you can enter it. It’s a contest to see who can get the highest score in the entire app, and the grand prize winner gets $300! That’s a 16GB iPhone 3G right there! So if I were you, I would obtain this app, practice, and enter!
The only downside to this app is that you can’t tap to music in your song library, which was one of my favorite features in the past TTR’s.
It’s current version is 1.0.
So go and get Tap Tap Revolution by Tapulous today, in the App Store (wired or wirelessly!). Below is a demo video and some screenshots.
Watch “Tap Tap Revenge” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
