Looks like Donkey Konga, which I loved. I might have to grab this for 99 cents... I'd get it now if I had any money in my iTunes account.

Tried the lite version and it is actually pretty good.

Yeah, I grabbed the lite too. I'm not too impressed with the 3 included songs, I wonder what else is available...

Hey guys, I'm Gian. I'm the designer of Feel Every Yummy and this game Bongo Blitz. Nattylux of Imangi suggested that I join the Touch Arcade forums, so here I am

We're still working on this game constantly, and we have lots of improvements and new features in the pipeline. Version 1.1 helped a lot with the initial first load of the game, so it should perform even better now.

Our song list is growing, too. If you guys have any suggestions for songs -- indie or mainstream -- that you'd like to see in the game, please tell us here! We welcome all genres, and the turnaround time can be pretty quick if we like the song enough!

Looking forward to more conversations with you guys in the forums.

From Little Big Planet! Love it. I wonder if that band would be nice enough to let us use the song for our game... we'll see!

It's definitely a fun game. I just wish there were some less pop songs available currently. Pixies would be fantastically fun to play in a game like this.

Rest assured, the song list will always be growing. Weekly releases of indie and mainstream songs guaranteed, and probably more sprinkled here and there.

If the demand is there, we'll definitely add some Pixies action in Bongo Blitz For now though, our best bet is to look at that Top 100 list on iTunes, as pop as it may be. Those are the songs that everyone has, which means more compatibility if we use them.

hmmm how does the "play with your own music work? will I have to upload files to a server then download them in order to play them? or will the game simply create note (beats) from my ipod's music library directly?
