Tap Tap Revenge is a series that should be synonymous with iOS. The rhythm game that has players tapping along to the beat as notes come down 3 tracks has its origins with the pre-App Store days of iOS as Tap Tap Revolution, being a jailbreak-only game, before the series went ‘legitimate’ with Tap Tap Revenge.
As the series went on, sequels got released, including collaborations with popular artists for branded versions of the game. Starting with Tap Tap Revenge 3, the series began to focus on in-app purchases of new songs and went free as soon as Apple allowed free apps to sell in-app purchases. Since then, developer Tapulous has been bought out by Disney, and a new chapter has been opened as Tap Tap Revenge 4 is now available. In a first for the franchise, it is making an appearance outside of iOS, as TTR4 is now available on Android.
Tap Tap Revenge 4 for Android starts you off creating a player profile, and you can play from a selection of included songs. As you play and level up your profile, you unlock new songs. You can download more songs from the in-game store, with a variety of free songs to select from, as well as a wider selection of paid songs. This is one of the first Android apps to support the Android Market’s official in-app purchase system. You can also earn credits for premium downloads by downloading selected apps from inside the app.
Tap Tap Revenge 4 plays just how you’d expect it to from the iOS version – it’s the same rhythm gameplay of tapping and holding notes as they come down the track. New to this entry is an indicator showing you if you are early or late with your taps. As well, each song comes with a custom visual design featuring artwork and animations related to the artist and song you’re playing. Tap Tap Revenge has definitely hit the big time and is now available for free from the Android Market.
