The App Store is full of music apps for the iPhone but there are very few available for the iPad. This leaves a nice gap for developers to come in with something unique. muBlip was originally released for the iPhone and has now updated to support the large screen of the iPad. The app is a rhythm game. But unlike games such as Guitar Hero or the Tap Tap series, the games controls are spread all over the screen. Players must tap, slide, and more to keep the rhythm and earn the highest score possible.

The game has different shapes that travel all over the screen in different setups as you play through the song. The interesting challenge is the "simon says" watch-and-repeat gameplay mechanic to the game. The first measure of each section is a demo of what is to come. Once the demo is finished, it is up to the player to copy the pattern while still keeping the rhythm.

The game is actually pretty challenging in some areas but in others it felt a little to simple and repetitive. Overall, the game was excellent to play through and had a great feel to it. It was actually fun to play through with some friends where each person was assigned a section to repeat. If you enjoy rhythm and memory games, this one sits at the top in my opinion. It's song list might be a little slim, but it is a fun experience while it lasts. Check it out.
