If you’re stuck with your family today for Thanksgiving and you’re not really into (American) football, why not grab a game for free that will hold your attention for a while.
The Tap Tap series of games are reminiscent of Guitar Hero, and the latest release in the series will appease both adults and children.
Tap Tap Muppets for iOS has been released to celebrate the movie “The Muppets” which was released yesterday just in time for the Thanksgiving weekend. The company behind the app, Tap Tap, is owned by Disney, so this version was a logical choice.
The movie is already getting great reviews, but we were all raised on the music, including “It’s Not Easy Being Green”, and “Moving Right Along”. The music in the game is directly from the soundtrack, which includes OK Go’s epic version of the Muppet Show theme song.
Get your fingers ready
Even if you’re not familiar with Tap Tap games, it’s easy to catch on. Start on the “Easy” setting and work your way up. All you have to do is tap the corresponding notes as the music plays. Hit the note spot on, and get points.
The app includes the following nine tracks, also for free:
1. The Muppet Show Theme – The Muppets & Joanna Newsom
2. The Muppet Show Theme – OK Go
3. Mah Na Mah Na – Mahna Mahna and The Two Snowths
4. Rainbow Connection – The Muppets
5. Movin’ Right Along – Alkaline Trio
6. Night Life – Brandon Saller and Billy Martin (Good Charlotte)
7. Life’s A Happy Song – Jason Segel, Amy Adams and Walter
8. Let’s Talk About Me – Chris Cooper
9. Me Party – Amy Adams and Miss Piggy
I’ve always found the Tap Tap games to be a really great way to experience new music interactively. Plus, get a high score and share it on Apple’s GameCenter network!
The social media campaigns for the new Muppets movie has been nothing short of impressive. Including a partnership with Viddy, and a Google+ Page, The Muppets have leveraged all major platforms to draw attention to its comeback.
