Prick up your earworms: Beat Fever is reviving mobile music games
Posted on: 23 juillet 2018, by : Eamonn Forde

More than a decade ago, music games were something the music industry was excited about. Guitar Hero, Rock Band and SingStar had the benefit of not just being console games built entirely around music; they also had multiple iterations and a secondary revenue source by offering in-game purchasing of extra tracks to keep them fresh.
Then, in the wake of the launch of iOS and Android and the boom in smartphone apps, mobile music game Tap Tap Revenge was hugely popular. But then both console and mobile music hits slid from prominence.
Launching last year in beta, mobile game Beat Fever is trying to swing the games pendulum back to music again. On the surface, it might look like a rehash of Tap Tap Revenge. Indeed, the basic premise of the game is very similar – tap sections of the screen in time with the music to stay in the game and score points – but it has learned tricks from the wider gaming industry, notably the revenue potential of customisation.
