Beatstream is a rhythm game that dynamically generates levels to go along with a player's music library. The graphics are unimpressive, but the game play is fun and the replay value is as big as one's catalog of music.
App DescriptionYour favorite songs are now a game! Turn any music from your iTunes library into an asynchronous tap game. No need to ever buy more songs, simply use the songs you already own to play.
As Beatstream analyses your song, it creates blue and yellow barriers in places related to the beats of the song. You are a two-faced arrow, one side blue, and one side yellow. Your mission: try and make your way down the track without crashing into the barriers. The barriers change between the two colors, so you must match the color of the arrow to the color of the barrier. Tap anywhere on the screen to flip the arrow between it’s two sides.

Note: Under two circumstances Beatstream cannot analyze your songs.
1. Songs in your iTunes library purchased from iTunes before 2009, may not work because they are DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected.
2. Using iTunes Match may cause some issues if you have never listened to the song on your device before. After listening to the song once, it will download from the Cloud and there shouldn’t be any other problems.
