And if I have no music in my iTunes? Does it have a default soundtrack?

This is an awesome Xbox 360 game. It's cool they brought it to the iPad. Definitely a must get, especially only 99c

Can anybody confirm whether it will work with music streamed from iCloud? I have all of my library available via iTunes Match, but no music is actually saved on my device.

It comes with four awesome tracks designed for the game, and the internet radio selections offer everything from hip-hop to 90's to dubstep. Just played a game with music by LMFAO and another by Lil Wayne using two different channels. Considering most people actually have music on their iDevice, I don't know what more you're expecting. This game is under 20 MB and $0.99. My GOTW by far. Four diverse modes, tons of perks, ranking up, many difficulty levels, and full GC integration. Best looking DSS you'll find on the AppStore or Steam for that matter. The game blends bullet-hell with a DSS just as well as CAVE did with M. Bug Panic.

Edit: Just caught Kanye and Skrillex on two channels. So much win. It definitely works great with your own music too since that's what it's actually designed for. Played it using songs by Drake and Kanye earlier on insane mode. It's sick.

Rather than wait for an answer to my question above, I decided to buy the game and check it out myself. It seems like a pretty great dual (or single) stick shooter, but I cannot figure out how to change the music. When I start the game, it seems to identify that I have about 12,000 songs in iCloud, but when I start a track, all I get is the techno trance stuff that comes with the game. I can't figure out how to get my own music to play and I didn't see an option for internet radio. What am I missing?

You need to actually have the songs on your device. I use iTunes Match as well and I can tell you that it is not a streaming music service. When you click the cloud icon in your iPods music player it downloads the song to your device, then plays it from your device. But it downloads first, it does not stream it. So, any song you've actually downloaded to your device from iCloud should show up in the game. Like I said, I use iTunes match and have had no problems getting my library to show up in the game.
