------------------


Symphonica is an entirely new breed of music game. Its breezy controls and tightly integrated gameplay give you a taste of what its like to be an up-and-coming conductor via a wholly unique gaming experience. Give Chapters 0 through 3 a try for absolutely free!

Featuring character design by Chinatsu Kurahana.
Supported platforms: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and newer, iPod touch 3rd generation and newer

> Story
Einsatz, the city of music, founded by the legendary conductor Carlos and his companions and brought to where it is today by its citizens, the Audience. Talented musicians from around the world flock here with dreams of performing in King Hall at the top of Concerto Tower, which stands tall over the city.

Takt has come to Einsatz to pursue his own dream of becoming the worlds best conductor. Little did he know that hed be in charge of the ramshackle Fayharmonic, an orchestra on the verge of collapse. Leaning on Takt as their last hope, the Fayharmonic and their new conductor set their sights on King Hall.

Thus begins the tale of Takt and his companions in song!

> Game Highlights
1.Not Your Usual Music Game
The lack of specially designated tapping hot spots gives you more freedom, allowing you to feel more of what its like to be a conductor.
Never-before-seen features like tempo shifts and real-time, control-linked volume changes put a fresh new spin on the music game genre (patent pending).

2.Tightly Integrated Gameplay and Story
Unlike games that let you pick and choose only the songs you like, Symphonica puts you in the role of a conductor honing the skills of his musicians. In this novel approach to the genre, the music game portion is organically integrated with the story, so youll be drawn in by the gripping plot while performing stunning classical pieces.

3.Go Even Further
Perform at higher score levels to increase your orchestras Fame and add new pieces to your repertoire.
Plus, once youve cleared a given song with a certain number of points, you can test your skill with a more challenging version of the song. Its perfect for experienced music game aficionados!

4.A Treasure Trove of Classical Masterpieces
Featuring nearly 50 instantly recognizable songs (20 full performances and approximately 30 rehearsal pieces), including Dvoraks New World Symphony and Beethovens Fifth. You might not necessarily know a pieces name, but once you hear a few notes, youll be humming the whole thing!

Playing through higher levels and the challenge looks very well balanced!

...in line with the new pricing policy of Square Enix but It's worth every single penny!

Well, I caved in and unlocked the game. My son and I are each playing the game (different iPads) and he likes it a lot, too.

Now, here's a question, has anyone noticed that on the music screen where you can select the pieces to play, there's some small gray text at the very bottom of each music piece? It's really hard to read because it is fine print colored gray on the red background. I thought it was some licensing credit, but instead, it's the opening lyric from Louis Armstrong's, "What a Wonderful World"!
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and for you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
I'm wondering what that's about?!

Are the bonus compositions added in the latest update worth the price?

It depends. If you like them, definitely. You get 4 compositions for each, but no story elements, however if you like playing in Concert mode, you will probably enjoy these too. 4.49 euro for 4 songs cost as much as any music in the iTunes store, so it is a fair price I think. Check the music beforehand if you are not sure, but I think these made great additions (still missing Rachmaninoff though ).

Music Pack 1
- The Mastersingers of Nuremberg (Wagner)
- 21 Hungarian Dances, WoO 1 No. 5 in G minor (Brahms)
- The Stars and Stripes Forever (Sousa)
- Pictures at an Exhibition: X. The Great Gate of Kiev (Mussorgsky)

Music Pack 2
- Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23 (Tchaikovsky)
- Light Cavalry (Suppe)
- Prince Igor: Polovtsian Dances (Borodin)
- Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550 (Mozart)
