Do you like Tap Tap Revenge, Rock Band, Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero? Then you'll LOVE Mad Acorn!!

TapTap Comix Vol.01: "Mad Acorn" the Rhythm Squirrel

"Feel the CRAZY RHYTHM!"
Mad Acorn is a revolutionary music rhythm game. TURN ON SOUND, pay attention to the music and you'll find the enemies coming towards you are actually music notes. Simply TAP anywhere on the screen to play the rhythm!

All you need to do is TURN UP THE VOLUME, be one with the music and JUST TAP your finger anywhere on the screen of your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

Help private detective Mad Acorn in his adventures on a burning bridge, bullet train, radioactive sewer and deadly swamp. Mad Acorn improves his skill as you score combos and his fighting technics explode to the levels beyond the art of war.

1) Be sure to put on headphones or TURN OFF SILENT MODE
2) Set the volume slightly louder
3) Select the stage and dive into the music
4) Follow the rhythm and tap anywhere on the screen to knock away foes/obstacles
5) Even when foes/obstacles are not on screen, tap to the rhythm and find hidden beats!
6) Timing your tap just right makes M.A. scream YEAH!
7) Scoring 30 combos makes M.A. sweat and go into Fever Mode
8) To clear the chapter, Final Beat (blow) on the boss must be successful

* Best experienced when played with headphones on. *

Whatever happened to the days of TOFTT? Come on guys, it's just a dollar AND there's a lite version.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Seems like a good neat little game. Going to download the lite version then possibly buy it.

Pretty decent game. Lot of thought into the presentation and the music is definitely the highlight of the game. This is based on the lite version, but I'm pretty sure the full version also lacks retina support...which is pretty much the only thing the game really needs right now. If you're looking for a rhythm/tapping game with a lot of character and really funky beats, definitely check this out...that is of course if the lack of retina doesn't bother you.

I like it. Played two levels of the lite, downloaded the full and got stuck in the first level Am sure I will get better with a bit more practice.
The lite version gives a good impression of the game, so I figure people who are interested in the game will download that and see if they like it.
Here's STP's review, they like it too: http://www.slidetoplay.com/story/mad-acorn-review
