Hearing about an adventure/music/rpg is enough to pique my interest, and that’s exactly what Arman Bohn‘s Arranger is setting out to be. However, reading over a few of the more descriptive elements has gotten me more than interested. It’s gotten me downright excited, actually.

“The game is an Adventure/RPG that combines elements from classics like The Legend of Zelda, WarioWare and the original Sierra adventure games,” according to the developer. Now if that doesn’t get people’s attention then I suppose there’s no hope for the world. The mini-game laden adventure is looking pretty fantastic in a simple, retro-esque sort of way. Players will be controlling the tiny musician as they attempt to save the world in a less-then-typical fashion. Rather than direct combat or level-grinding, they’ll be gathering a number of musical instruments in order to craft a tune that will avoid whatever this particular catastrophe entails.

Arranger is still a little ways out, being slated for a Summer 2012 release, but it definitely looks like something to keep an eye on. If the trailer below is any indication, it just might be worth the wait. It’s also apparently going to have some great music.

Show of hands, who here sometimes likes to blow across the top of a bottle to make that vaguely musical sound? Okay, good. Another show of hands, who here either has or has considered amassing several of these bottles filled with various amounts of liquid and recreating a real song? Interesting. Well then, have a gander at Bottle Tunes.

Bottle Tunes is pretty much what I just described, only with digital representations of bottles and music rather than physical ones. Although there’s a little more to it than that. Sure it’s possible to fill up some bottles and go to town, and even save tunes for replaying or editing later, but there’s also a bit of a game here. Namely, users can adjust fluid levels and attempt to recreate a specific “bottle-themed” song.

I imagine the market for something like this is a little limited, but then again the appeal of magic bottle music is fairly universal. Plus it’s totally free, so why not download and play around with it?

Rock Band Reloaded Now Available

Rhythm gamers who hate leaving their plastic instruments behind when they leave the house will be pleased to hear that Rock Band Reloaded is now available on the App Store. The game features 29 new songs from the likes of Billy Idol, Nirvana and the Steve Miller band, as well as several new gameplay features and enhancements. It would seem the time has come to once again take the rock on the road.

Of the new features the one with the most potential (and the most potential embarrassment) is vocal recognition which will let you sing along with the songs. Much like its console brethren, Reloaded will score your performance based on how closely your pitch matches that of the song. Don’t worry if you don’t know the words, the game only cares that you’re hitting the right notes, not saying the right thing. Other new features include a landscape mode so you can play the game horizontally and a new Expert difficulty setting.

While we’re happy to see a new Rock Band on iOS we can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed by the set list. Even though Reloaded packs more songs than last year’s edition and a bunch more than Guitar Hero, most of them are retreads and rehashes from the console versions. Yes, we still love Hungry Like the Wolf, but after playing it six dozen times in Rock Band 2 we’re not particularly thrilled to see it yet again. Also, while the inclusion of vocals is cool, how functional is it going to be on a mobile version of the game? The only place where you can really let lose and sing along is at home, and if you’re in your living room why not fire up one of the console versions of Rock Band instead? But hey, if rhythm games are your thing then don’t let us talk you out of it. Rock Band is still a ton of fun, so by all means stick it on your iOS device and enjoy.
