Glee Version of Tap Tap Revenge Comes to iOS

Posted by at 10:49 am on August 4, 2011

Fox’s hit TV series “Glee” now has its own edition of Tapulous’ Tap Tap Revenge, called Tap Tap Glee. The free game, which debuted on the App Store late Wednesday, includes three free tracks, including the cast’s rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” and makes another 50 tracks available for download for 50 cents each. Players can connect to a special Facebook wall, where they can choose to be a “GleeK” or a “Jock.”

Game developer Tapulous has released four main versions of Tap Tap Revenge for the iPhone, but has also created special editions, often devoted to one performer or band such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga‚Äč or Metallica. The game was originally patterned after arcade and console hit Dance Dance Revolution‚Äč but took advantage of the touch interface of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Players tap notes with their fingers in time with a song, avoiding complexities or other challenges designed to throw them off. To date, the combined versions of the game have been downloaded more than 75 million times.

Fox Digital Entertainment, which partnered with Tapulous to create the game, will launch a PR campaign to cross-promote the app with the release of a 3D concert movie featuring the cast (to be released August 12th) and the launch of the third season on September 20th. The app will be spotlighted on re-run ads, movie posters and other media. The Facebook tie-in also allows users to “slushy” their friends on their Facebook walls.

The app includes exclusive video from the upcoming movie, the option to play free promo tracks each day, a “Yearbook” to learn more about the characters of the show, answer Glee trivia questions and compete on a Game Center leaderboard. Content will be updated when the new season begins, and players will be able to buy other Tap Tap games from within the app.

The app is universal for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Devices must be running iOS 3.0 or higher.
