Tapulous has added many new features to the application which are outlined below...
A Ton of New Music
Right off the bat, Tap Tap Revenge 2 comes with more than 150 free downloadable tracks, and we'll continue to add great new tracks every week. The three bundled tracks in the game are some of our favorites. Death Cab for Cutie's "The Sound of Settling" is supremely catchy and super fun to play. Stroke 9 went into the studio to write and record Tap Tap DomiNation, the hot new title track for Tap Tap Revenge 2. We're pretty sure you won't be able to get the song out of your head, so we've released the track as a single on iTunes.
We are delighted to announce that The Crystal Method is premiering "Double Down Under," a track from their upcoming album, months before you can get it anywhere else. A short mix is included in the game, and for the real junkies there is a long mix in the download catalog.
More Fun For Everyone
Tap Tap Revenge 2 sports a hot new look and feel. In-game we offer a 3D experience where the feedback and the colors get wilder as you do well in the game. Multi-tap, tap & hold and instant tap feedback make the game more challenging and fun at the higher levels. Speaking of which, even the most avid players will find a good challenge with the new Extreme tracks, and for the little ones, we've added Kids Mode, where everyone's a winner.
We've also added a simple Career mode. Right now it's mostly a set of Achievements, but we're connecting it to your online rank, and you can grab a widget to show off your achievements to your friends on your blog, MySpace and elsewhere. In the coming months, Career Mode will get even richer.
More Ways To Play With Your Friends
Tap Tap Revenge 2 is a great way to pass the time when you're on the bus (or in the limo to pick up your grammy award), but there are a ton of ways to play with others:
The live online game rooms are better than ever and let you play with friends, people nearby, or just other folks who show up. Catchup Taps mean that you can you always come back from behind (no time to rest on you laurels if you're ahead!), and we have introduced a more sophisticated online ranking system.
Two-player mode also features catchup balls, a crazy new look and a progress bar that shows you who's ahead.
With the brand new Challenge A Friend mode, you can email the game you just played to any of your friends. Your friend will play head to head against the game you just finished, and see at all times who is ahead with a progress bar that accounts for every single ball you hit or missed! A couple of the guys at our office haven't gotten any work done since we finished this feature, so we're pretty sure this is addictive.
Stay tuned: in the coming months we have a TON of exciting new music coming to the game - free and premium! We'll continue to offer weekly contests and tournaments where you can win prizes - and you don't have to be a champion to win. Just participate and you'll have a fair chance to win!
