Move your monkeys in time to the beat in this rhythm game/real-time strategy hybrid.

It’s been a long time coming, but Disco Pixel’s Jungle Rumble is almost upon us!

Jungle Rumble is very much a rhythm game. It’s also kind of a real time strategy game. It’s being described as “Patapon meets Advance Wars” and I have to say it doesn’t seem too far from the truth. Controlling your monkey (or squads of monkeys) is simply a matter of tapping your commands in time with the beat. Move, run, toss coconuts, that sort of thing. The goal was to make an iOS rhythm game that allows the player to make decisions rather than simply trying to stick to a specific script or pattern.

I have to admit Jungle Rumble feels pretty good. It doesn’t necessarily look like it from the screen shots but it really does call to mind games like Patapon in a very pleasant way. I had a little trouble keeping the rhythm at times but I’m fairly certain that had more to do with a noisy show floor than anything. Still, I’m interested in seeing how it plays in a much quieter setting.

Jungle Rumble should be releasing within the next couple of weeks (probably). I didn’t get a set number for the price, but it’s definitely going to be a premium game because the folks at Disco Pixel “don’t want to monkey around with micro-transactions.” Yeah.

Michael Jackson may be gone, but if Michael Jackson The Experience is any indication, it seems that his music and his legacy will be with us forever. After showing up on every platform from the Wii to the PSP to the iPad, Ubisoft’s rhythm game tribute to the world’s favorite smooth criminal has now arrived on the iPhone. Luckily, this mobile version comes with a few new reasons for players to not stop until they get enough.

While the game retains the iPad version’s rhythm gameplay, the input system where players “draw a series of shapes with their fingers according to the beat and choreography of the Michael Jackson avatar” has been adapted for the smaller screen. The game also includes two new, exclusive songs: “Leave Me Alone” and “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough.” The rest of the soundtrack consists of “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Speed Demon,” and “Blood on the Dance Floor.” More songs can also be purchased in-game.

Remember the time, on the go. Michael Jackson The Experience for iPhone is available now for $2.99 on the App Store.

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.
