[prMac.com] Indianapolis, Indiana - Available on the App Store for iPhones and iPads, XBEATS is a brand-new puzzle game designed for musicians (both pros and amateurs). Similar to Sudoku, XBEATS offers grid-like puzzles that need to be solved using music notation. Players will need to properly arrange the given notations to piece together valid measures of music based on various goals.
Amateur musicians can also get better with music theory during gameplay using the built-in HINTS feature. XBEATS offers a relaxing gaming environment with over 40 levels of hand-made puzzles, which range from duple meter (2/4 time) all the way to quadruple meter (4/4 time). Each level will be a grid, and the goal would be to arrange the notations so that both the rows and columns have certain number of beats.
The players will start with simple grids and gradually step into more challenging ones. When all the 40+ hand-made levels are completed, an extra Challenges mode will get unlocked. The Challenges mode offers 30 completely new puzzles with added difficulties, such as the inclusion of double-dotted notes and rests, etc.
"XBEATS is a brand-new puzzle for musicians that can provide hours of brain- teasing fun for musicians, and it can also help amateur musicians to get better (and faster) with music theory during gameplay," said company owner and developer Lesley Liu. "There are so many things to memorize in music theory, and playing XBEATS is a fun way to make the learning process a lot easier."
