Ratings and Reviews
We’ve flipped our powdered wigs for this rhythm game about classical music. Epic Orchestra’s chiptune tracks are audio nirvana, and they’re matched by a quirky 8-bit look that’s as fun as the baton-twirling gameplay. Swiping in time to the music and unlocking bonuses that boost your conductor’s prowess is a blast—even if you don’t know Mozart from Minecraft.
Standing Ovation ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Playing this game is an exceptional experience! There are a lot of apps that take 2 things and put them together, but I never would have imagined classical music and a rhythm game. The gameplay is pretty easy—swipe the direction of the arrows while they are over the box. After a while it becomes hypnotic and you feel like you are in control of the little pixel orchestra. The style is very much in tune with modern rhythm games but this one feels more relaxed. It could be the pace and the fact that you are playing to classical music. My favorite track is the Rachmaninov piece. As a classical music fan, I'm glad the selection isn't just the ultra popular classics. I would like to hear more lesser known composers. The Chopin tune is amazing too.
The art is the other thing I love about this game! The pixel art reminds me of the games I grew up playing with my brother. Those chunky pixels bring me back to a time when games required you to use a little imagination to fill in the spaces. The animation of the little musicians are cute and I almost jumped when they started disappearing!
I hope there are more songs in the future and possibly some new challenges. The music is amazing! Most of the tracks are pretty piano heavy with chip tune elements sprinkled in. I recommend this game to anyone that is into classical music and old school games. I enjoyed it both on Apple TV and iPad. I look forward to seeing the games future development. 😃
I used to really like this game, so I redownloaded it. The game has gotten harder since I had it, so I was moving through the levels slowly. Problem is that around Pachelbel the game started glitching out and wouldn't let me play the level. It would give me three stars and move on as if I had completed the level. This is really difficult because the game requires you, later on, to swipe two ways at once. It's very hard to jump into that without practice, and since so many of the levels won't let me play them, I just can't do the harder levels that I am being allowed to play.
