Do you know the predecessor of iPhones? It’s the iPods. This explains why even if it’s a cellular phone, it’s also equipped with music-centric features, from speakers to voice recorders. Moreover, so you’ll be able to maximize these options, you can download music or rhythm games such as the following:
Beat It is one of the best music games there is, and it has some awards to prove it. It’s a progressive game, which means as you move to higher levels, that challenges become a lot harder. The ultimate goal, however, is to copy the music that is presented on the gird. Aside from this exciting feature, more recent Beat It updates permit you to share your successful tracks to other game players and friends. This simply motivates some to take up a competition.
Do you want to know how it feels to DJ your own music? With this iPhone game/app, you don’t have to head to any nightclub. You can do so anytime and anywhere. RJDJ allows you to play with music any way you want. You can let your outside noises be included in your mixes. You also have the option to create your own sounds as well as change the song completely. Best of all, you don’t get to keep your creativity but share them with friends in several social networking websites.
Shazam is actually an app, but you can also use it as a music game. What it does is to tell information about a particular song by simply bringing your phone with the active app near a speaker. Your friends can then compete to guess data such as the title of the song, as well as the singer. You can also use Shazam to determine the best places to buy the music, as well as provide you with great song recommendations by analyzing your song tags.
Aero Drum Free
There are two versions of the game: free and paid. As expected, you get more if you opt for the latter. Nevertheless, the former doesn’t really disappoint. This iPhone game gets you into the groove by banging your own set of virtual drums. The concept is basic: just follow where the dots go. Hopefully, you get to hit the cymbals and drum skin right on time. This game is also a good way to practice your drumming skills, especially if there’s no drum set around yet.
If you don’t know how to sing those Christmas carols, then you have another way to get on that holiday spirit: follow their tunes. Chrimbell just plays various bell sounds. You just need to follow them. You can pick among some of the greatest Christmas carol hits including Jingle Bells. You can also add some built-in speakers, just in case you have an impromptu choir right at your own home.
This is a type of memory game. The only difference is that there are other elements to it besides boxes, like lights and sounds. In the game, you choose among the three different options, from 4 to 9 boxes with light. Listen and observe, then copy the patterns that you have just seen. Like any other kind of memory game, this can be quite addicting. After all, why would you quit when you’re hitting things right at every level, right?
Tap Tap Revenge
What do “Faint” by Linkin Park and “Bom Bom Pow” by Black Eyed Peas have in common? These are just two of the cool songs used in Tap Tap Revenge. This equally addicting game is so easy to beat. You just need more agile or quick hands. The premise is to tap the color where the ball falls into. There are three bars or columns you have to watch out for, though. Tap Tap Revenge’s appeal also comes from the fact there are already great updates on it, and you can compete with your friends.
Who would have thought that the creator of Space Invaders Infinity Gene would eventually come up with Groove Coaster? Yet it’s one of the reasons why the game is screaming awesome. What’s more, to play the game, all you need is one finger, which keeps on following the roller-coaster motion of the bird while a song plays in the background. (And you can choose your song’s genre!)
Can’t get yourself through TV? With this music game, you can already audition right in your mobile phone. Brought to you by EA, American Idol lets you choose some great songs from the list including “Material Girl,” then obtain an honest feedback from any of the judges. If you have been missing a lot of shows now, you may be able to catch them too with this app.
Rock Band Reloaded
Be a certified rock star no matter where you are—yes, even when you’re in your own bedroom—with this crazy, sound-screaming game called Rock Band Reloaded. While the previous edition only lets you play instruments such as bass guitar, with the Reloaded version, you can sing your heart out through its Vocal Recognition. Moreover, you can rock using any of the hottest tunes like “Kryptonite” by 3 Doors Down and Evanescence’s “Call Me When You’re Sober.” And since it’s pretty lonely to rock alone, invite your three friends and connect each other via Bluetooth or WIFI.
This is quite different from all the other music games since this can also be classified as an adventure. Tha main character Frederic Chopin goes through several amazing journeys, and you’re there to ensure he succeeds in every musical duel. The game also offers you more than points, such as an hour’s worth of animation, competitions with huge prizes, and HDTV compatibility. Plus, it’s just an entertainment game you definitely wouldn’t stop laughing.
Guitar Rock Tour
Don’t be misled by the title. This music game also lets you get your hands on the drums. Either way, too, you should be able to rock it out; otherwise, you’re bound to be in Loser-ville. There are more than 15 popular tunes you can choose from, some of them you get to save as Favorites. Moreover, you can pick any favorite setting, whether head-banging in Tokyo, Japan, or headlining in Berlin, Germany.
This is very similar to Tap Tap Revenge, only that you get to use your thumbs more, hence the name. And with three bars to keep your eyes on, the music game is going to be exhausting. But then again, you get what you want in the end: have a lot of fun.
Thumpies is a game even your eight-year-old will love, never mind the nasty-looking, addicted-to-butterflies creatures that take center stage. The objective is to let these creatures bounce in time with the beat. The original song and the unique characters gave its developers a huge sale.
The World of Tunes
The World of Tunes is in grave danger, and only you and the Tuneys can do something about it. Make sure the cool superhero Tuneys continue to bounce as you tap the right beats. Otherwise, their entire world will be dominated by Aliens.
There’s nothing music cannot heal or deal with, including boredom. To make sure you don’t doze off but forget about your worries, music is paired with choreography, more rhythm, and game play.
