World of Tunes is actually really fun

Hi everyone! So, I downloaded World of Tunes thinking it was going to be an average game, but it is a very fun game. It's a lot like guitar hero when it comes to timing. On easy and normal mode, the timing with the music seems a little off, but once you unlock hard mode, everything comes together, just like guitar hero! It's very fun and addictive. There's a story mode, free play, DJ mode, and a crazy mode. There are different levels with boss battles. It's really fun.

My favorite stage is definitely the urban-death-robot stage. At the end of the levels for this stage, you fight a robot. You defend against his missiles by tapping them as they get closer. What are everyone else's favorite stages?

Also, the music is a mix of trance, techno, and electronic. I'd like to see some harder music, and maybe some wicked evil bosses. Maybe a Deathmetal Devil stage, or something?

The rhythm is spot on in hard mode, but not so much in easy and normal modes. I guess that is why they are easier? And there is surprisingly a fair amount of action in this cute and adorable arcade game. I have also read people saying that this should totally be a game for the Wii, too. I think it is doing well for the iPhone. I love my iPhone, so back off, Wii.

Hi Thorbjorn,

Welcome to TA

We have an existing thread on World of Tunes here (I found it using the forum's search function at the top of this page). You are more than welcome to join the discussion there. Alternatively, you can post a thread in the game discussion forum. One of the mods should be moving this thread there soon. We generally keep this iPhone and iPod Touch Games Forum for game releases only

Hey, welcome. Always great to see new users.

You're not the first to make this mistake, nor will you be the last, but yeah, wrong section. You can do what Prab said and post in the existing forum, or, if you're willing to flesh your post out a little more, you can post it as a review in the review section of the forums. Be nice to see someone writing them instead of Big Albie... just go to the section, you'll see what I mean

I got to play about two stages of this a few weeks ago and enjoyed it quite a bit.

The first boss battle is pretty funny. It's a large man eating plant like Audrey II from The Little Shop of Horrors. It tries to kiss you at certain points between tapping the tuneys and you swipe your finger across the screen to slap it silly. I laughed out loud

oh and since everyone said it I guess I have to as well so I don't look like a jerk

Well, once again, welcome to the forums, and for being legitimate.
You will use this account, I promise.
I used to be a very minimal lurker who only watched the headlines.
Now I only check the forums, headlines come second.
And, yes, the search button is your friend, however unreliable it may be.

Oh, and I love this game too. The music is catchy and great, the gameplay is pretty good, a nice EBA imitator, the best so far.
