As you can see by the photo below, I’ve done some, um, rejiggering with my iPhone display. But along with App Tapp Installer, I was able to download a bunch of new packages onto my iPhone to get just about anything I’ve ever wanted. And, amazingly, I came across Tap Tap Revolution today that is, without a doubt, the best iPhone game I’ve ever played. Even better, it’s downloaded straight to your menu so you’ll never need to use Safari to play it.
Tap Tap Revolution is everything you would expect from a game like Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution, but it doesn’t have nearly the selection of songs and you use your thumb instead of your feet or a guitar. You can download a few songs (right now there’s a limited selection because it’s a new game), but many more should be coming in the future. Once you’re ready to play, the song plays over the iPhone speakers as lights travel from the top of the screen to the bottom. And, as you can see by the picture below, you’re supposed to tap them at the right time and the game will give you a score and tell you how you’re doing (“Sweet”, “Good” or my usual: “You Suck.”). So far, the best I can do is 12,406 — yikes.
Now before you go out and start searching for Tap Tap Revolution, you’ll need to download App Tapp and download some of the packages included in it. Once there, look under ‘Games’ and you should be all set. Check it out — you won’t regret it.
