Supported platforms: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and newer, iPod touch 3rd generation and newer
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!

Great game, needs more content
This game is fantastic. There ya go. I've played in symphony orchestras all over including Vienna and Germany. This brought back so many memories. I bought the whole episode pack and was happy with the music selection and the graphic novel esque presentation. However I do wish for additional content. This is open for additional downloadable content for stories and pieces. However I can see price tags becoming a hinderance to buyers. Paying upwards of 40 bucks for 25 or so songs is a struggle for convincing me to purchase more. I think this game was fantastic and the characters compelling, with the potential for 10 or more unique npcs that could be introduced for takt's orchestra. I think there are many more roads this game could go and be successful AS LONG as it doesn't break the bank. If your a fan of anime style art, orchestral pieces and supernatural this game is amazing. Square Enix please create more for this game with a user friendly price tag.
Great game, great music, nice storyline. So, why only 4 stars? A certain lack of character development is why. Twelve episodes with four bonus episodes just doesn't seem to do the characters justice. Don't get me wrong, however. The orchestral music didn't disappoint, the art form is beautiful, and that's least you should expect from a Square Enix game. But being a dedicated fan to them, I just expected a bit more; paying $15 and all, y'know? $15 is no small deal, it raises the bar for 100% expectation. I personally only got 80%. It's a fine game. But definitely pricey.
A lot of fun for a lot of Cash!
Between the main quest and the 5 extra packs I spent 35$ plus tax. (I ran outta money & couldn't afford The last one)
For an IOS game that's a fortune.. And with that price the game better be pretty dang good. And it is for the most part. Still I feel like with the amount I paid I should have hundreds of songs not just 25. Heck I should be able to play my own songs and create the parts for it.
So, I really would only recommend this game to a fan of classical music and someone who's played at least a few FF games or something like a visual novel.
The bonus packs should be 2.99 and the main game 9.99$. That's the price I think the game is worth.
For what I paid I want more songs, create a song mode, some Nobou Uematsu Music.. I dunno something else..
