Sponsored Post: Best Games Where You Can Play Your Favorite Music by Yourself

Posted by | News | No Comments

Not everybody has the talent to play a guitar, play drums or sing. Sure, if you give it enough time you can learn any skills, but if you’re just a big fan of music who doesn’t have the time to dedicate to learning, it can be overwhelming. Nevertheless, just because you don’t have the time, that shouldn’t mean you can’t enjoy being part of playing music one way or the other, right? Plus, if you’re living in a five-story apartment, you can get neighbor complaints about all the racket happening at your place.

Since we’re music fans as well (who isn’t), we decided to check out mobile apps that allow you to enjoy playing music without requiring you to learn an actual instrument. After a couple of hours of constant searching, we found this list of rhythm games we thought was quite useful.

Best Rhythm Mobile Games

There are some pretty fun games there that allow you to play in the rhythm of some of the most popular songs today. No matter if you enjoy RnB, rap or rock, there’s a game for you so we concluded it would be nice if we review three of them we think are the best.

BEAT FEVER – An Amazing Library of Songs

The moment we read the description of Beat Fever, we knew this game will likely end up on our list. From the moment you start the app, you can see that the developers spent quite some polishing the app. Although the gameplay is your standard hit the buttons in the rhythm of the song type of a game, where Beat Fever truly shines is a gigantic library both of classic and the latest songs. The game does have more from the RnB and rap genre, but there’s something for everybody. But the strongest point is the activity of the app, meaning they constantly add new songs. Every Friday, they have a feature album which is basically a collection of the latest songs they’ve added so this way you always have something new to play. Finally, the community aspect where you can interact with other players gives it even more depth so there’s something to do even when you’re not playing.

One minor thing we noticed is that you spend your energy points a bit too fast. After an hour of playing, we were stranded without any energy to continue playing so our options were either to wait or pay for extra points. This is understandable, but we still feel they could be more generous when it comes to the free-to-play aspect. The game needs to earn money to be able to further develop but it feels a bit underwhelming. Still, it’s a great music game any music fan will surely enjoy.

VOEZ – For Anime Fans

Here’s a music game we didn’t expect to end up on our list. But, we got to say, the game truly caught us off-guard. Besides being just another tapping game, the game has a dedicated storyline you can follow as you play. So instead of randomly finishing one song and starting the next, each level feels like progress in a story that’s quite enchanting and interesting. The selection of songs is great and instead of playing modern tunes, you play dynamic songs that feel like they just jumped out of your favorite anime. A great extra is that you can set up the difficulty of each level such as the speed of the falling notes. This allows people of different skill levels to play so you can enjoy both if you need a challenge or just a relaxing way to pass the time. It’s all up to you.

Although the choice of songs is great, if you’re sticking to the free-to-play model, your options do get kind of limited. It feels more like a demo than an actual game. Once you pay, the doors open to an almost endless amount of music fun, but until that point, you’re stuck with just a couple of songs. But if you’re in rhythm games, we believe this game is worth your money. You definitely won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a game you plan to play for a longer period of time.

BEAT MP3 – Customize the Songs

Finally, if you don’t like someone else selecting the songs you can play for you, you can always use songs you have in your personal library. Besides this unique feature to upload songs you own, another great element is that each game is randomly generated, meaning even if you play the same song, the rhythm patterns are different, providing a new experience every time. People who need a challenge will love this because you can replay the same song and still feel like you’re playing for the first time. For people who feel that might be too much, don’t worry, you can go easy mode and practice until you make it perfect. There’s also a random event every now and then that provides a bit extra fun, but the focus point is still the ability to upload songs and customize how you want to play.

One slight issue is some songs you upload won’t be playable. It might be due to the quality of the mp3, but we did get an occasional error with some songs we tried to upload. It happened only with a few of them and we were able to play most of the ones we tried. So if you happen to get this error, just try to upload a better file quality or simply move on to your next song.

Conclusion

Rhythm games might not be exactly like playing an actual instrument, but they still provide the excitement of playing one. Situations where you get the perfect score are extremely satisfying and it almost feels like you played your favorite song on a guitar without a single error. So if you don’t have the time to learn an actual instrument, these games are a great alternative.

We hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we did and that they will provide you with hours of a fun experience. Who knows, the games might just motivate you to actually pick up a guitar or piano. We know it had an effect on us. Enjoy.

Def Leppard Pours Some Sugar on Guitar Hero Live

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

If you’re interested in seeing the debut of the video for Def Leppard‘s new song, “Dangerous” then you’ll probably want to own Guitar Hero Live. This is a first and possibly good sign that the platic peripheral band games are not as obsolete as they may seem. The video will be part of GHTV the premium Guitar Hero Live channel where players can play along to songs as they air by earning money in the game or shelling out some real cash.

“When the idea to premiere our newest music video for ‘Dangerous’ in Guitar Hero Live came about, we were thrilled,” said Joe Elliott of Def Leppard in an official release. “The way our fans discover and listen to our music has evolved so much throughout the years. Whether they’re playing on vinyl, streaming the songs online or playing along to our music video in Guitar Hero Live, it’s amazing to see how interactive music has become. There are so many interesting ways our fans experience our music, and having the video for ‘Dangerous debut in Guitar Hero Live felt like such a great way to reach all of our fans.”

In case you don’t know, though really I’m not sure how you couldn’t, Def Leppard was one of the many popular hair metal bands that dominated the music scene in the 80s. Along with Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, and Poison, Def Leppard sold millions of albums and played to packed crowds all over the world. Some of the band’s popular songs include “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” Love Bites,” and “Animal.”

Amplitude Review: Old School Returns

Posted by | Reviews | No Comments

Available on PlayStation 4

There used to be music games that didn’t involve plastic guitars or microphones. It’s shocking, I know. Whether you’re too young to remember or the thought has simply vanished into the forgotten past, the concept is different than what we’re used to these days. But that doesn’t mean those music games were less complex or less fun to play —to the contrary, actually. Amplitude is one of those games. Read More
