Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
We’ve all had that morning when our alarm clock failed to fully wake us up; as a result, our personal hygiene suffered. We rushed to “brush” our teeth and “shower,” oftentimes forgetting to use soap!
Until Now. meet Game Up Alarm Clock, the game alarm clock.
Game Up will lullaby you to sleep when you set an alarm but when its time to wake up it’s GO TIME!
Game Up will be merciless with its caffeine powered alarms whose sole purpose is to get you out of bed aware. The challenging but beatable games get your mental juices going when you need them the most.
By the time you beat the game it will be easier to get out of bed than going back to sleep.
Setting Alarms should be easy
Game Up is the simplest way you have ever set an alarm. Just drag the bottom bar up until you reach the time you want to wake up and let go. Thats it, you’re done, nothing else is needed to set the alarm.
Wake up however you want
Game Up comes with its own alarm sounds that will be playing while you attempt to beat a game to wake up to. If you don’t like our sounds, don’t worry we took a sneak peek at your iTunes library so you can wake up to your favorite tunes! Just swipe left to right to expose your iTunes library.
Not a One Trick Pony
Game Up comes preloaded with two caffeine powered games to get your mental juices running at 101%. Just swipe right to left to show the app’s dock where you can select a game to wake up to or to shuffle them. We also have more games with 3000% more caffeine coming soon.

What's New in Version 1.03
- After selecting the shuffle option for the games, it was hard to get the app to stop shuffling. To stop it from only being able to shuffle we taught it how to tango too!
Not too shabby, but has some quirks
I used this alarm for a good few months before I deleted it.
The pros: it let's you use your songs from your iTunes, it's not complicated to use (just slide up to set alarm, slide to the right to set music, and slide to the left for the game you'd like to wake you up), and the games actually wake you up!
The cons: you MUST have the app open (not on lock screen) in order for it to properly go off at the designated time, so make sure you have your phone plugged in because though your screen will get dark if you put your phone face down, it can still kill your battery. Also, if you don't have the app open before you fall asleep then it'll try and wake you up by making the sound of a text message- I don't know about you, but if a text could wake me up then I wouldn't need a game alarm clock app. Also, for me, the games got to where I'd get use to them and they wouldn't do the job of getting me out of bed anymore. There's only 2 games, so there's not much of a variety to choose from. Lastly, after having this app a couple months and making sure I always had the alarm set and app open before falling asleep, it would just quit working. Not sure why, but that was ultimately what led me to delete it. I'm now trying the "Walk up" app to see if it'll perform better.
Hope this helps!
The games are kinda lame
The interface is nice but the games are not fun at all. One is tic tac toe, for which you don't really need to use your brain much. The other one is some weird game called yank that has no instructions so it's hard to figure out what you're supposed to do the first time. Once you figure it out, it's super easy and there's no difficulty settings so after a while you can just play it real quick and turn the alarm off and go back to sleep. Also, it's buggy and if you do!'t do everything the exact way you're supposed to, your alarm won't go off. Plus it hasn't been updated in 3 years, so in 3 years they couldn't even come up with another game?
I tried this one, Kiwake and Fred O'Clock. They're all alarms with games, although very different from each other. So far I think Fred O'Clock is the more reliable one and has games that really wake up your brain and are fun. It's the least annoying alarm as well.
Maybe when these guys release better games and an update, this app will improve.
It wakes the entire house up.
I guess I should work on volume control. If I cared more about not getting my adolescent boys up pretty early in the morning. I highly recommend There Might Be Giant's "Seven". Full blast and no mercy.
Since my goal is to get a household of males terribly disturbed at 5:30 in the AM, it doesn't matter that there are only two games to play in the morning. It's not like adding MORE games would improve my hand-eye coordination or, as the great President Bush (Jr.) put it, "strategery." (My iPhone auto-correct says that's not a word, but to suggest anything otherwise would simply be un-American.)
I don't know how the two year old sleeps through it, but that makes it an even better sell for me.
