Great App!


Love this app! Use it all the time with my students. They enjoy competing against each other for the high score. The developer is great as well and is very responsive to feedback.

Why have two apps?


I downloaded staff wars, my daughter needed staff wars live. Wat?

What sane engineer has two apps named the same thing that do slightly different things? Put a tab view controller in your app and drop both apps functionality into each one. Easier to maintain, easier to publish and you customer won’t hate you b/c they bought the wrong app.

This is when it would be nice if digital goods were more like the real world ... returnable.

Rating this 1 because it’s misleading.

Developer Response

Thank you for your comments.
StaffWars and StaffWars Live teach different skills. StaffWars teaches basic reading skills. StaffWars Live helps student play their instruments in tune. Music teachers
would argue that every student should be able to read music, but not necessarily “play” an instrument. Thus two different apps. Much like Diet Coke and Coke Zero. 😀

Great idea for kids!


Playing this game immediately captured the attention of my eight year old son who much prefers playing the piano by ear. I really like that you can adjust the range of notes on the staff - he's not quite ready for the extreme ledger lines and really needs to drill the more common notes first. So grateful to find a music note game with a shooting theme for a boy who'd rather be playing Plants Vs Zombies! I hope he stays interested in this for awhile to aid his sight reading. One suggestion: another option for the player to select the notes through one octave of piano keys (rather than the alphabetical buttons) would be awesome, further helping to link a written note to a piano key shape. But don't get me wrong, this is quite useful as it is. Thanks so much!
