[prMac.com] Las Vegas, United States - OstinGames announces the release of Zepi Music 1.3 for iOS, with terrific SuperBall power-up now to help you score even more! The aim of the game is to earn as many points as possible by quickly tapping or sliding same-color bubbles/bugs on the screen. The skins are different in size and bring different number of points. As you touch them, a flashing chain will be formed. As soon as you pause, the string of bubbles will burst giving you a specific number of points that are added to the total score of the current session. Generally speaking, the more bubbles there are in a chain the more points the Leaderboard will record for you! Fantastically, with newly introduced multitouch function, you can make several chains at once!
What makes Zepi Music an outstanding application is its music flavor and the opportunity to create musical improvisations! In the Simple Sound mode, each touched piece sounds the same as the rest. In Instruments or Themes, any object you tap produces a note. As soon as you string together a full musical phrase from a recognizable tune, you score good points that might multiply several times if you are lucky to build bonus chains such as Good, Great, Excellent, or Brilliant. Remarkably, it is for you to decide which instruments will sound in your session as well as which melodies you will play! Add to this x2 balls that double your score and newly introduced unique SuperBall power-up. The latter is generated by the program at random but its frequency depends solely on the player's playing style and speed of scoring. Along with bonuses, each sound mode offers 30 achievements. To unlock them, players will face various challenges. Those who enjoy improvisations are sure to fall in love with Zepi Music!
iTunes reviews by Zepi fans speak for themselves:
* "This game has a twist in the normal Zepi game. Touching the notes produces a sound each. It was weird but enjoyable. I played this game on the bus."
* "I'm very impressed with the game. It works as advertised and even better. Funny tasks to complete. Love the way it is designed."
* "I can't ask for more. This game looks simple but it's pure genius of excitement. Amazing!"
* "The game is quite tricky at first but once you are comfortable with it, you can't let it go. Nice game!"
* "As I move along in the game, the music gets more interesting. I was playing Zepi Classic previously without any variations of music when tapping on the bugs. The music in this special edition is a nice add-on to this game!"
* "You can spend hours and hours on this game and still not be done. There's a lot of content in this game and you'll cover it all quickly but that's not the point. The point is the enjoyable graphics, the great sound, and the nice gameplay. First, the graphics look really good, with lots of bright colors standing out. The sound also compliments it really well, with soothing sound as you complete the game. Finally, the gameplay is really good, and is certainly very enjoyable, and a nice change from the top hits of Angry Birds and Doodle Jump."
