One of the issues I'm facing so far is that since the bugs appear from the lower half of the screen, my thumb/s routinely prevent me from seeing the play area and incoming bugs/bombs. Of course, the solution to this is playing the game upside down... something I've been doing (thankfully the game does not support reverse portrait orientation).

Other than that the music and graphics are great, nice animations for the hero/heroine and fun minigames to intersperse the rhythm action.

WOWOW. I didnt think I'd be impressed by this game at all, but I have been proven wrong. To anyone that had a Dreamcast or even a Wii now, and had the pleasure of playing Samba de Amigo; you now have an iOS version with Mariachi Hero!!

It is a rhythm game where bugs are approaching with the beat. It is your job to squish them on time and to the rhythm(which is shown when the white dot turns red). Along with that you have bottles and other object that fly by overhead tempting you to shoot them to gain extra points. Bombs follow the same path as the bugs but do not offer the red dot, so its your job to shoot them on the beat. You have a multiplier/health bar at the top of the screen that actually carries over to the next stage, so you should try doing your best.

At the end of each of the levels i beat was a different type minigame ranging from swiping bugs off the hero, to shooting them "point blank" style and pressig your gun to reload. i only got to level 3 but had alot of fun with it. I must mention that so far it has been nothing but mexican themed music. Given the title, look, and general theme of the game I dont expect to run into any other types(but i would love a few hidden classics to add more variety).

There are Game Center leaderboards, but they arent for each individual song. Also there are no achievements which is kind of disappointing when they could be placed for things like a perfect run, or coming back from having your health bar on red. In all, the game is a blast to play and i look forward to the next round of song they have lined up to release.
