+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Available for free today comes Say What?!, a music trivia game that's all about matching song lyrics to items on a speeding conveyor belt.

It's a simple game that promises to involve fast reactions and fast thinking, too, with the added bonus of learning all the song lyrics at the same time. The more correct icons hit, the more points scored thus making the Facebook leaderboards satisfying indeed.

Say What?! comes with music from Calvin Harris as well as other free tracks. Plus for a small in-app purchase, players can also purchase tracks from the likes of Kasabian, The Zutons, The Hoosiers, Scouting For Girls and Toploader with more content set to be added every week. Independent music is also catered for with new musical discoveries such as Gudny, Mercston and Gus Warriner also included here.

Say What?! looks like a great trivia game for the music fan. Hopefully as time goes on, an impressive selection of music will be available.

It's out now and it's a free download just for today!


Music Trivia Fun With TriviaTunes

Everyone loves trivia, right? I mean, who can resist the warm sense of satisfaction in knowing the correct answers to a subject they're interested in? While movie fans have a whole range of fun ways of answering film trivia, music fans are still in need of that amazing hit. TriviaTunes sets out to do exactly that.

It's essentially a game of name that tune. Music is streamed from the TriviaTunes servers quickly and efficiently, and players must simply guess what the track is. Options wise, there's a bit more to it than that though.

For one thing, TriviaTunes offers a bunch of songs included in the free package. However for the inexpensive price of $1.99, players can pick up song packs ranging from TV Show theme tunes, 1980s, Movie soundtracks, Country, Rock or numerous other decades. Chugulu Games offers regular updates so there should be plenty of new music to check out for a small fee.

As well as that, there are numerous different modes to play. Besides playing simply alone, up to 4 players can join in. There's a buzzer mode whereby the first one to buzz in with the correct answer wins. The MCQ mode offers multiple choice answers with incorrect answers gradually disappearing as time goes on. Plus, there's the intimidating Expert mode which allows players to enter answers directly from the keyboard rather than guessing from a selection of answers.

TriviaTunes looks to be a pretty well planned out game, covering all the necessary bases to make for an entertaining trivia game. Hopefully it'll be fun for all the family with genres stemming back as far as the 1970s although grandparents might wish for some older decades to be available.

TriviaTunes is out now and is compatible with all iOS devices. It's a free app with a string of in-app purchases available.
