There have been rhythm games for a long time. DDR is a great game, but who can forget the old days? We saw a big rise in the popularity of games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero as well, too. These games are no longer popular on consoles, but their popularity has spread well to mobile. Most of the rhythm games on the market aren’t bad, but there are a few that are good. Many of them make good use of touchscreens and accelerometers. Here are some of the best rhythm games for your Android phone or tablet!
A Dance of Fire and Ice
A Dance of Fire and Ice is a simple but fun game of rhythm. Red and blue dots are in this game. You must tap to the beat as you move them through a level. The different shapes, twists, and turns in the level help set the pace. Some of the graphics aren’t the best in this type of game, but the music is good and the one-handed mechanics make it a fun arcade game. There are also boss levels, calibration settings, and a lot of other things that you can do. Besides, the app costs $1.99 and doesn’t have any in-app purchases or ads that you have to pay for.
People who like rhythm games should check out Arcaea. It’s one of the more recent ones. It looks like most of the other things on the list. A step bridge is also used in this game. Instead of the newer tap and swipe mechanics used in Cytus II, this one has a step bridge like Guitar Hero instead. The game is very easy to learn. You also get more than 90 songs from 50 artists, three difficulty levels for each track, and more music that you can buy in the app. There are also leaderboards and people you can talk to online. Most of the content is free, but you’ll have to pay for extra tracks that you don’t already have in the app.
When it comes to rhythm games for Android, BeatX is one of the more stable ones. It also has a DDR-style way to play, with buttons that move in different directions and holds that let you play for a while. You’ll also be able to play single-player, doubles, and split-screen games. On top of being a good game, it also has a lot of content. We also plan to let you upload your own files if they’re in the right way (.sm, .smzip, .dwi). It’s a pretty complete game. If you like competitive rhythm games, this is a good one for you.
A new rhythm game called Cytoid is on this list. You and your friends play together. In fact, there are only a few songs that come with the game download on its own. You can look for, download, and add songs made by other people in the Cytoid community to your own playlist. You can also make your own step files for other people to play. A lot of people like Cytus because of how it looks and how it works. Even some people call this one a copy. This is a great game for people who are really into rhythm games. It’s also free, with no in-app purchases or ads, so you don’t have to pay.
In Dynamix, which came out a few years ago, there are many new rhythm games that have done well. When you play this game, you have to move your finger in a top-down way, which makes it more complicated and hard. It comes with 20 songs, and you can buy more as in-app purchases to add more songs. In the same way as many other games, this one has an anime theme with bright, neon colours all over the place. It’s not as deep as something like Cytus. There are still a lot of things it does well. You can get it for free, and you can buy more songs through in-app buys.
Lanota is one of the most interesting rhythm games on this list. It has a lot of different moves. It gives a lot more attention to the story line. You’ll play as the main character as you move around a map and find new things. People play the game on a wheel that moves all over. Because of this, the game is both hard and complicated. Feels different even though it’s a rhythm game. It features ten levels, three difficulties, 16 tracks, and a picture book that shows you the story. It’s not like anything else.
Lost in Harmony
Lost in Harmony is a great rhythm game with runner-style parts. Control a boy and a girl in the middle of the screen. They have to keep the music going without getting in the way. There are two stories in the game, one about MIRAI, and one about Kaito, both of them. In addition, the developers say there are more than 10,000 tracks made by other people in the community. We don’t play games like this very often. It’s also free to download, but there are some in-app purchases that you have to make to use it.
The main thing that makes the game hard is that the horizontal line moves up and down.
The best way to start this list is by mentioning games made by Rayark, which is known for making rhythm games. And that’s no surprise, because she made a lot of fun and unique games in her own way.
Rayark is a Taiwanese company that also has an office in Tokyo, Japan, and specialises in making mobile games. Rayark is an independent company. There are other types of games made by Rayark, but rhythm games are the most well known.
During the year that Rayark was founded in 2012, Cytus came into the world. For example, the game is different because it combines the features of a rhythm game with a story. You play by setting the rhythm of the music to pass the missions. All in all, there are 10 chapters and a prologue.
Cytus is a story about Vanessa. It takes place in the future, when people were killed off by a deadly virus. In the end, all that was left were robots with human memories that they could get through music. The story is about who you are and what you remember, as well as a lot of music. As for the songs, the game has a lot of Japanese electronic music in it.
The practical side of the game is also a little different from what Guitar Hero and people at Ohio State are used to. You’ll see an Active Scan Line appear on the screen. It moves up and down while dots appear at the same time, making it look like it’s moving. It’s the goal to touch these points as the main line meets them.
It may take a while to get the hang of it, but it’s very fun!
Cytus is a free app that has in-app purchases (to unlock new chapters and songs). Cytus was a big hit, so there were versions for Playstation Mobile and the Nintendo Switch. There was also a sequel to the mobile game Cytus II that came out in 2018, called Cytus II (this version however needs to be purchased to play).
Deemo’s gameplay is more like classic rhythm games like Guitar Hero than other games.
Deemo was Rayark’s second rhythm game to come out in 2013, following the launch order. When it comes to gameplay, Deemo is more like the more traditional rhythm games. There is a horizontal bar at the bottom of the screen, and the notes “fall” to it. When they hit the bar, the player has to touch the bar to get the note to fall away. Deemo tells a story, just like Cytus did in the Bible.
The story is about Deemo, a lonely, magical person, and Alice, a girl who fell from the sky and lost her memory. The two meet so that the girl can go home. The piano tree grows each time it is played. To get Alice back, they need to play as many games as possible as quickly as possible.
The songs in the game are then played on a piano, making them sound more peaceful and classical. Also, Deemo’s art is a separate show that is hand-drawn and very beautiful.
Deemo is free to download from the Play Store, but the free version is only a small part of the whole game. It’s worth it because the story is beautiful and exciting, as well as fun. It was announced in 2019 that there was going to be a sequel called Deemo II. It even had a teaser, but there was still no set release date.
Even a movie about the history of the game, called Deemo The Movie, will be out in 2021.
