[prMac.com] Chengdu, China - Indie game developer, WOD Studios, is pleased to announce Bubble Beat is scheduled to release on September 2nd and made for the iOS platform. It is a simple and adictive game that can be played from a few minutes to hours; the basic mechanism is to tap the screen as bubbles rise, and the music plays.
When starting to play, the player is free to choose any instrument from the song; notes will rise as bubbles move from the bottom of screen to the top. Each bubble moves inside one of five tapable rectangle areas on the screen, when a player taps on that rectangle, the top bubble in that rectangle bursts, and plays the music note, with beautiful animation. There's a line near the top of the screen; the closer to the line when bubble bursts, the higher score will be added, and the song will sound better of course. Just burst the bubble when it gets to the line, Easy to start but hard to master. A player needs to focus on the screen when bubbles rise and the fingers must move very fast when many bubbles come up at the same time, but with more practice, the player will play as a musician. No boring music theory stuff needs to be learned. Just play and enjoy.
Multipile modes for playing a song:
* Perform Mode: Normally play with this mode
* Practice Mode: When a song is tricky, start with this mode
* Autoplay Mode: It is very nice to watch others(Robot) play and enjoy the beautiful bubble burst animation with music
* Competition: There are some selected songs that are suitable for competition (new songs will be added from tiem to time), and see who gets more points, with all players around the world
Bubble Beat was inspired by an old PC Game - Virtual Orchestra Studio, known as VOS on early windows platform (windows 98, windows 2000, windows xp, etc.), which was really addictive and with lots of fun to play, won't run on newer windows any more, many new game extends the basic game mechanism and extends it to much bigger games, add stories, RPG elements, and MMO abilities, and require more time to proceed. However, many players still miss the old VOS, because it was simple, direct, player can easily enjoy the fun when focusing on the screen when notes fall, eyes work with fingers and that beautiful music plays, and that's why Bubble Beat was made.
Bubble Beat is simple and pure, designed for iPhone and iPad users to play on small devices. It comes with more than 400 songs, and any other song in MIDI format can be imported and played for free, so it has infinite content to play with.
