Tapulous Releases New Coldplay 'Tap Tap' Game (Hands-On Review)
'Tap Tap Revenge,' an iPhone and iPod Touch game with a similar style of play to 'Dance Dance Revolution' and 'Guitar Hero,' has become the most installed app on the two Apple devices, attracting millions of downloads, according to comScore. This week, Tapulous, the makers of the commute-killing masterpiece, released its latest 'Tap Tap' iPhone app - 'Tap Tap Revenge Coldplay.' For this special-edition installment of the franchise, which includes 'Tap Tap Dance' and 'Revenge 2,' the designers paired up with the Grammy-winning band to produce an entrancing and hypnotic game fueled by 10 popular tracks.
While we are, admittedly, not avid fans of Coldplay, the game never loses its appeal. The enhanced graphics, mesmerizing array of colors, and flowing backdrops remain entertaining throughout all four difficulty levels, although we probably appeared to be violently abusing our defenseless iPod while attempting to play the "Extreme" setting. The multiplayer function, also available on some of the other titles, adds an extra dimension to gameplay. If you're sharing a gadget, just be careful not to get so animated that you headbutt your opponent (although that might have aided us in our over-matched contest against a piano player with far more dexterous fingers than our own).
If you enjoy killing time with 'Tap Tap,' but Coldplay's not your thing, the recent release 'Revenge 2' features over 150 free songs from a variety of genres including rock, hip-hop and country. [From: Tapulous]
