Latest edition should launch sometime next month
Tapulous has finally submitted Tap Tap Revenge 3 iPhone app to Apple for approval, according to the Business Insider. The update will be a major revision to the company's popular music game inspired by console hits such as Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution. The series has achieved more than 15 million total downloads, spread across 11 million unique users.
The update will provide a number of new capabilities available as in-app purchases. Players can customize their avatars or download songs from famous artists. Two tracks will be sold for $1, or six tracks can be obtained for $3.
Even if users have no desire to add content, they will still have to pay $1 for the app itself. This is a consequence of the expanded functionality, as Apple prohibits in-app purchases from apps that can be downloaded for free.
If everything goes as planned in the approval process, Tap Tap Revenge 3 should be added to the App Store sometime next month. The company is also working on a new game, Riddim Ribbon, which combines racing and music from The Black Eyed Peas' member Will.I.Am.
