Tapulous' Riddim Ribbon Game Featuring the Black Eyed Peas Hits the App StoreHighly Anticipated iPhone Music Game by the Makers of Tap Tap Revenge Includes Smash Hits From the Black Eyed Peas and Tiësto (February 08, 2010)
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/10 -- Tapulous, maker of the wildly popular iPhone and iPod touch music game Tap Tap Revenge, today announced that its highly anticipated Riddim Ribbon music game is now available from the App Store. Riddim Ribbon lets iPhone and iPod touch users create their own unique mixes to hot tracks as they race down a crazy ribbon, pick up pebbles, choose forks in the road and avoid obstacles.
"We weren't looking to create another DJ game that appeals to a small niche of gamers. The beauty of Riddim Ribbon is that it's a game for everyone, just like Tap Tap Revenge. It's fun and simple, in the best sense of the word," said Tapulous CEO Bart Decrem. "People don't need to invest huge chunks of time -- it's very easy to pick up and put down, and have a fulfilling and unique experience each time."
Tapulous has created a ground-breaking new music game, as Riddim Ribbon Co-Producer will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas puts it, "I am so excited about this game... it makes you re-think the concept of playing a song... It makes you re-think the remix... (In this game, the original master and its remixes are played) 'not played played' but actually 'played'... (The future)."
With Riddim Ribbon, tilt your iPhone or iPod touch side to side to the beats of six-time Grammy award-winning the Black Eyed Peas, Tiësto, and others, as you race down a crazy curving ribbon. Pick up pebbles to make it past checkpoints. Any missteps strip the mix down to basic drum beats. Forks in the ribbon, ramps, checkpoints, and more mix up the sound, so each game produces a unique mix.
At launch, "Riddim Ribbon featuring the Black Eyed Peas" contains three Black Eyed Peas smash hits ("Boom Boom Pow," "I Gotta Feeling," and "Meet Me Halfway"), with a total of eight remixes of these hits included. Additional levels are available for download, starting with two levels by Tiësto, who's been voted the #1 DJ in the world three times, and Benny Benassi's smash hit "Satisfaction." Additionally, with a purchase of Riddim Ribbon, U.S. users receive a free download of a special "Meet Me Halfway" remix never released in the U.S.
Riddim Ribbon Featuring the Black Eyed Peas is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://bit.ly/riddimribbon. Additional levels can be downloaded for $0.99 each.
