Feel da riddim, take the stage and shake your body!
Or if you aren't such an outgoing person, you can express your good sense of rhythm with this fantastic compilation of games the Appszoom editorial team has curated for your booty-shaking delight.
Wait, this isn't just another list of rhythm games. If you are bored of Guitar Hero replicas, we know exactly how you feel. We've taken the wild trail instead of the mainstream path. These are hybrid games, merging together rhythm with other genres in truly original gameplay. The result is pretty neat. Let's zoom in!
The Rhythm Of Fighters
The Rhythm of Fighters is SNK's official music game, a new wrinkle in the classic title with a music-based gameplay. In TRoF, you must time your taps and perform other gestures to the beat. The more precise you are, the more points you get and the sooner you'll defeat your enemy. If you properly tap enough "beats" in a row, you could activate special super attacks.
A whole new approach to the fighting genre that makes the most of mobile touchscreen controls.
Final Fantasy's soundtrack is awesome. Everybody knows that. That's why a rhythm game with the main themes of FF saga soundtrack is halfway there before even being launched. If, in addition, it features FF characters, environments, and graphics... success is guaranteed.
In Square Enix's Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, your mission is to tap, flick, and hold your finger to the screen in time to the music. As in classic rhythm games, you get different music lanes you must switch between. However, apart from creating incredible beats, in TFF you also launch spells and attacks on enemies. The only way to level up is defeating the enemy, or, in other words, tapping down to the beat.
Yes, it's true: this game is expensive; or at least more expensive than we are used to in mobile platforms. Nonetheless, Sega's Rhythm Thief is truly worth its price if you are a fan of the rhythm genre.
First, because it features dozens of well-crafted mini-quests that put your sense of rhythm to the test. Second, because all those mini-quests follow a common storyline enriched with fantastic dialogue. Third, because its upgrading system is equally engaging and challenging. And finally, because the soundtrack is excellent. If you can afford it, don't hesitate and go for it!
Simogo's Beat Sneak Bandit is a one-tap game in which you have to tap the screen at the proposed rhythm. Your character will move accordingly and sneak through stairs, traps and portals, and even slip past cops and other mysterious characters inside Clock Mansion, where a rich aristocrat has allegedly stolen all clocks of the world to create a time-freezing machine. This game must be played with your headphones on.
Big Blue Bubble's My Singing Monsters is a smart mix of management and breeding game that, in addition, requires a good sense of rhythm.
In MSM every monster plays a instrument, so your isometric island will soon become a singing monster kindergarden full of odd yet cute musical beasts. Complete mini-quests and make the population of singing monsters grow to fill the world with new rhythms. The game concept is original, and the design is beautiful.
