Symphonica is an entirely new breed of music game. Its breezy controls and tightly integrated gameplay give you a taste of what it’s like to be an up-and-coming conductor via a wholly unique gaming experience. Give Chapters 0 through 3 a try for absolutely free!
Featuring character design by Chinatsu Kurahana.
Einsatz, the city of music, founded by the legendary conductor Carlos and his companions and brought to where it is today by its citizens, the Audience. Talented musicians from around the world flock here with dreams of performing in King Hall at the top of Concerto Tower, which stands tall over the city.
Takt has come to Einsatz to pursue his own dream of becoming the world’s best conductor. Little did he know that he’d be in charge of the ramshackle Fayharmonic, an orchestra on the verge of collapse. Leaning on Takt as their last hope, the Fayharmonic and their new conductor set their sights on King Hall.
Thus begins the tale of Takt and his companions in song!
> Game Highlights
1.Not Your Usual Music Game
The lack of specially designated tapping “hot spots” gives you more freedom, allowing you to feel more of what it’s like to be a conductor.
Never-before-seen features like tempo shifts and real-time, control-linked volume changes put a fresh new spin on the music game genre (patent pending).
2.Tightly Integrated Gameplay and Story
Unlike games that let you pick and choose only the songs you like, Symphonica puts you in the role of a conductor honing the skills of his musicians. In this novel approach to the genre, the music game portion is organically integrated with the story, so you’ll be drawn in by the gripping plot while performing stunning classical pieces.
3.Go Even Further
Perform at higher score levels to increase your orchestra’s Fame and add new pieces to your repertoire.
Plus, once you’ve cleared a given song with a certain number of points, you can test your skill with a more challenging version of the song. It’s perfect for experienced music game aficionados!
4.A Treasure Trove of Classical Masterpieces
Featuring nearly 50 instantly recognizable songs (20 full performances and approximately 30 rehearsal pieces), including Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Beethoven’s Fifth. You might not necessarily know a piece’s name, but once you hear a few notes, you’ll be humming the whole thing!

This is to help
This review is for anyone who has a white screen when the app shows up, there is a simple solution. You can not have Symphonica turned on in your iCloud drive, to turn it off got to Settings, iCloud, iCloud Drive and make sure the dot on the switch is to the left. If you want the perks of iCloud backup simply turn Symphonica back on in the iCloud drive when you are finished playing for the day. You can manually backup iCloud in settings, iCloud, backup and after you hit back up there will be a blue line telling you when it is done than all your Symphonica credit will be saved in iCloud and when you want to play again just turn it back on in iCloud, but make sure to check when the last backup was and if that was the time you told the device to backup iCloud. Go to iCloud in settings and open backup the last backup will be under the manual backup button. If the last backup failed to succeed I recommend turning off the device as it is backing up and check it in about five minutes. I hope this helps everyone with the game and please enjoy it because it is a lot of fun.
Good little music game
I always enjoy good music games and this throws a decent story line into it as well. I would only have wished they used real music rather than synthesized. But I might just be picky. Other than that I really enjoyed the variety of classics they used and the controls were good yet a bit difficult to master at first and don't use bluetooth headphones there is a lag. Definitely buy if you enjoy music games. Only wish there were some animations to go with the pictures.
Where has the game gone?
I've been a fan of Symphonica for a while now, but it's been several, several months since the game has worked for me now. I contacted SquareEnix about the fact that the game doesn't load any longer, all that displays when I open the app is a white screen, and received a very non-committal response.
Why has nothing been done about this? If the game has just been dumped by the company, fine, but if that's the case, you should take it down from the App Store. I think it's absurd that I game that people have payed money for can just cease to work like this, and that enquiries that have been made have just been brushed off. It's been AGES, please either fix the game or take it down!
