Mad Acorn on the App Store: When Rhythm and Action Go Great Together
June 5, 2012 in Games
[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - APD Inc announces the release of a new kind of rhythm action game - Mad Acorn 1.1, the Rhythm Squirrel. It is a game that has successfully brought focus to both rhythm and action, while most other rhythm action games were quite limited only to the rhythm. This game's background music and sound effects are synced perfectly to increase players' excitement.
The basic control of this game is to tap on the screen. This kind of control is very intuitive and gives the least stress, allowing players to fully immerge into the music. A couple of control variations include "rapid tap" and "touch and hold" which are demonstrated while playing the first stage of the game. The game is created as a live-action comic book. A total of 4 stories, with 4 stages per story and a total of 16 stages, are available from the beginning.
Another extra story is coming soon and will be distributed as a free update in the upcoming weeks. Each story has its very own setting and cartoon. The first cartoon of each story introduces how Mad Acorn, the squirrel, got into the mess. Each story has distinctive themes and music, for example, the first story called "Burning Bridge" is mostly Euro-pop music while the second case named "Boogie Train" is mostly disco music.
What makes this game even more compelling is the addictive gameplay. Developers worked hard on the sound effects as well to make a user feel immersed into the action. 16 original songs are excellent to play, but also to listen.While playing, users can collect 29 achievements to display in the Trophy Room. Furthermore, they can easily share their experience on Facebook.
"Games that have been released recently lack innovation because developers and publishers are trying to avoid risks. We decided to release a new title that would be fun and interesting to play, but also bring something new to the gaming experience. Mad Acorn is a great mix of fun, music and addictive gameplay. You can literally play to the beat which is completely different." commented Hyoungsoo Kim, CSO of APD Inc.
