The definitive list of the best mobile rhyhtm games, definitively.
I love rhythm games. If I had to pick one genre of video games to play for the rest of my life, it'd probably be RPGs, because I love stories in games and I could always go play real instruments. But rhythm games are a close second!
So with that on the table, it's no surprise that I think one of the best things about this age of smart-devices is that it's provided a platform where rhythm games can thrive and are made available to play on the go. After all, touch screens are perfect for rhythm games! It's just like pressing buttons or hitting percussion instruments, there's no way that could go wrong, right?
WRONG. Just like every other mobile game genre, there's a ton of trash out there in the rhythm game genre. This list is not about those games. This list is about talking about the mobile rhythm games that get it right and the ones that almost get it right with some caveats.
Now a big factor in how I'm ranking these games is their control scheme and thus it's relevant to let you readers know that I'm mostly playing these games on a tablet, specifically an iPad Mini. What this means is that I'm generally playing with my fingers, rather than just my thumbs, with the tablet resting on some surface rather than being held up. I've played some of them on the phone and I'll note the differences in quality depending on platform where relevant.
The other big factor is obviously soundtracks which play a large part in your enjoyment of rhythm games so this is definitely a subjective list. It is simply the definitive list of my favourite mobile rhythm games.
That being said,I haven't seen any other GB lists on this subject so I'm going to go ahead and say I'm basically the foremost expert on mobile rhythm games, thus making this list pretty much definitive and 100% factual. Completely objective.
If it all goes according to plan, I'll be going through and writing actual reviews of each of these games but consider this list as a quick reference for now.
Feel free to leave a comment and tell me if you think differently! (You're wrong) Definitely tell me about your favorite mobile rhythm games though, especially if it's not on the list yet.
Thanks for reading!
Really though, this list is basically for my own personal reference but if you get something out of it that's good too.
