Tap Sonic is a korean music game for the iPhone and iPad.
Released for iOS in January 2011, Tap Sonic has been one of the highest grossing mobile apps in the Korean marketplace to date. The game itself will look familiar to fans of Rock Band or Guitar Hero with notes coming down anywhere from 4 to 6 lanes towards a timing line. Tap the notes with the proper timing and your score and combo increases. It's payment system is unique in that players don't pay for individual songs, rather you purchase points that can be spent on single plays of each song in the songlist. Single plays cost anywhere from 15 to 30 MP, with some songs that can be purchased for 800-900 MP to play infinitely. The game requires an internet connection in order to function.
Fans of the DJMAX franchise will be familiar with many of the songs available in the title as the top songs from the various DJMAX titles have been included as lower cost songs. Much of the songlist otherwise is made up of chart topping K-Pop tracks, classical music, and a handful of licensed songs. The game is due for an August release in North America and according to the official Facebook page, is planned to have all of the songs included in the Korean version of the title along with a number of popular English language songs. New songs are added to the title every Monday.
