Pulse is a new music iPad game from Cipher Prime Studios. I really like the music selection and design on this one. This is for the hipster tech geek who wants to play a rhythm game. Cipher Prime also makes the game Auditorium which I also recommend.
“Enter an absorbing world where players become part conductor, part note-captor, part multi-touch master. Tap speeding notes as they cross the radiant pulse to conduct gorgeous original melodies.” – cipherprime.com
Zach Gage is my favorite iOS developer. He has created Synthpond, Unify and Bit Pilot which I all consider five star apps. His new iPad game Halcyon is part generative musical instrument. As with all his apps style meets gameplay. This is futuristic fun.
“A Generative Musical Instrument – Halcyon features a complete generative soundtrack that becomes an instrument when you play the game. Since its designed to accompany you while you play, you’ll create tranquil sonic landscapes as you travel along. Gameplay is one part spacial action puzzler and one part interactive stringed instrument combined in an experience designed specifically for the iPad. Colored currents travel inexorably toward each other. Strum the strings to match the currents, creating both phonic and visual harmony.” – zach gage
