[prMac.com] Winter Park, Florida - Indie developer, Jill Pestka of Twiny Vine and Zeladrijn Music have combined talents to produce the groovy bug phenomenon known as Boogie Bugs available on iPad, and its sister app Boogie Bugs Mobile on iPhone and iPod touch.
A musical game for budding composers of all ages, this application is all about fun, freestyle musical immersion. Easy to play, requiring no musical experience, Boogie Bugs and Boogie Bugs Mobile allows the user to toggle on and off frogs, dragonflies, beetles and other perfectly timed background bugs to orchestrate a musical tune while tapping the lead melody on responsive keybug instruments. This iOS application includes two different ecosystems, dance floor and pond, each with its own rhythmic inhabitants to produce over 2,000 possible musical combinations for a unique experience every time.
Dance floor, with its illuminated floor and disco effect sets a visual mood for game play with rhythmic beats that will get your fingers moving. Pond mode, on the other hand, with its blue hues, watery atmosphere, and mellow nature inspired sounds will inspire improvisational play. Additionally, subtle animations let the user know who's playing and who isn't, and the design also allows for multi-player fun, and if your a bashful performer, give it a try on headphones.
