Hit family karaoke TV show Staraoke ships as iPad Christmas game

December 16, 2010 in Games (E)

[prMac.com] Tampere, Finland - BeiZ today is proud to introduce Staraoke Christmas HD 1.0 for iPad. Are you buying more plastic toys as Christmas presents? Or something which lasts longer, doesn't create waste, help your kids to develop their singing ability - and is fun? Staraoke Christmas HD is a unique and non-violent iPad-game that combines three things kids love: singing, games and friends!

Staraoke is originally a Karaoke PC game that became a hit television show. "We do our best to make games that are not digital babysitters but have some real value for children" explains Mika Heikinheimo, CEO of BeiZ.

Targeted at the entire family, Staraoke Christmas HD lets the player control a cartoon character on their screen by singing along to various songs. The software recognizes the singer's pitch and keeps the character on the path... unless you sing off key. Singers will quickly develop their singing abilities to win as many points as possible and keep their characters from going astray.

Singing contest mode is a Karaoke competition for up to 4 people. This means that instead of your children sitting staring at the screen, they will be having fun with their friends, singing, and from our experience, dancing along as well. (Actually we have found most parents want to join in as well.) This isn't just a mobile game, it's fun for the whole family.

The game can be easily played using the iPad's built in microphone. True fans of the game might want use a headset or dedicated iPad compatible microphone. Also Staraoke Christmas will be coming soon to iPhone and iPod touch devices.

Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 3.2 or later
* 38.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Staraoke Christmas HD 1.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
