Cue the winds! Cue the brass! Cue the complaining about the Square-Enix pricing structure! Symphonica, an orchestral rhythm action game, is now available for iPhone / iPod touch and separately for iPad. Symphonica puts you in the role of a young conductor attempting to hone the skills of the ramshackle Fayharmonic orchestra as he pursues his dream of becoming the world’s greatest conductor.
In other words, you get rhythm action game with outstanding music, excellent artwork, ridiculous characters, and those crazy melodramatic story lines that only Japan can provide.
Seamlessly integrating unique, free-flowing rhythm action gameplay with a gripping storyline and stunning classical music including Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Beethoven’s Fifth, Symphonica puts a fresh spin on the music game genre that is unlike anything you’ve experienced before!
I don’t doubt that. Watch the trailer:
As always with Square-Enix, the pricing is a bit wonky, but at least you get to sample the prologue and chapters 1-3 for free. Beyond that, chapters will cost $2.99 each, or you can buy them in packages of four (chapters 4-7, 8-epilogue, bonus episodes) for $6.99 each. If you’d rather just buy everything at once and be done with, all 12 chapters plus bonus episodes will cost you $14.99.
Symphnoica is compatible with iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone4 and newer, and iPod touch 3rd generation and newer. For more information visit the official Symphonica website.
