Check out jukebeat, a music simulation game like no other, and see how addictive tapping to the beat can be!
The rules are simple!
Marker(s) will appear on the grid in time with the music.
When the marker has filled out the tile it's on, tap it for the most points!
The better the timing, the higher the points!
Keep a lookout for additional, familiar favorites that we'll be releasing through updates!

Looks kinda cool
But you need to add more songs... Free songs... sorry not buying things for 3.99 although I'm really interested to how you made the game and how fun it would be if I got Hucked on it like voez ~which have free things in~ but yeah looks like a cool game...
Jubeat's finally released in the west, and on iPad it feels almost as natural as it does in the arcade. To those who haven't seen it before, it's basically musical whack-a-mole: squares will light up in varying patterns, and you tap the lights in time to the music. On a 4x4 grid the patterns are virtually endless, and can be anything from simply working across a row or column, to alternating corners, to 5 or 6 squares at a time that you need both hands to hit. There's something intrinsically fun about tapping lights to a beat, and you get a real sense of satisfaction when you manage to contort your hands to finally hit the one section that's been eluding you.
The game does, admittedly, get quite difficult rather quickly, but the transition from 'this is too easy' to 'this is way too hard' is something that'll be smoothed out as more and more song packs are released. The current song packs are all high quality, although, as has been mentioned, more Konami originals in the future would go down well, as would the revival of some of the songs from the original Ubeat test (Scatman, Barbie Girl, Informer and Set U Free would make an awesome pack!)
Basically, if you like rhythm games, you NEED this. If you don't, give it a go anyway, there's no better demonstration as to how fun they can be!
So glad that the western market can now get a chance to play this amazing game on their iPhones and iPads! I was addicted to the arcade version while I was in Japan and I'm glad that I can still get my fix now that I'm back in the UK. The difficulty curve does seem daunting at first if you're not used to it, but that does mean that you want to replay it over and over again trying to improve your score so jukebeat has a very long lifespan compared to many other game apps.
I've bought the music pack including concon, one of my faces from Japan but I'd love some more of the Japanese songs to be brought over - especially sigsig (available already for the Japanese app) and Jump Pump, one of the most addicting from the arcade version. Please keep on updating and expanding this for us!
