Orchestral rhythm title Symphonica out for iOS

Square Enix music game Symphonica is out now for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This is a fun take on rhythm gaming that has you heading up a crappy orchestra and working toward becoming the world's greatest conductor. His ultimate goal? To acquire the fabled Zero Score, which is reserved for the best of the best.

Given the setting and theme, the soundtrack is orchestral, based on classical music. Think Theatrhythm, but with classical music, and a bit more challenge.

Symphonica is a free download, but that only gets you the first three chapters. You can buy additional chapters at $2.99 a piece, but I'd say that if you're digging it you might as well put up the $14.99 for all 12 chapters plus bonus episodes. $15 is a lot for a mobile game, but you know how Square Enix rolls. 

As a musician, I'm digging the conductor-like tap-and-swipe gameplay. It's quite challenging. The world, story, and characters are goofy enough to have won me over already.

Tell Harmonix to put the entirety of '...Like Clockwork' in Rock Band 4

Looking forward to Rock Band 4 just as much as I am? You're probably wondering how the upcoming roster is going to look. Me too. In fact, I'm pretty concerned. I dropped a pretty penny on hundreds of songs, with 70% of them i...more

Rocksmith will turn you into a guitar legend like Hendrix or the guy from Papa Roach

Rocksmith 2014's getting some DLC songs by Papa Roach today. One time in eighth grade, a kid in my class started a speech by saying "Cut my life into pieces, this is my bat report. Echolocation, no seeing. Vampire bat bite your arm, now you're bleeding." I wonder what he's up to. Probably not playing Papa Roach songs on Rocksmith, if I'm being really honest.more
