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.
