Musika For iPod Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Pocket Gamer has unveiled a new feature examining Musika, a puzzle game for fifth generation iPods. Designed by Masaya Matsuura, creator of PaRappa the Rapper, Musika plays a song from an iPod library and challenges players to press a button when they recognize a number or letter from the song's title. Pocket Gamer gave Musika a score of 6 out of 10.

From the review:

So it's straightforward, but how does it play? Well, Musika is... different. Which sounds like faint praise, so let us elaborate. It's a novel attempt to create a game that really makes use of the iPod's music features, rather than just shoehorning an existing casual game genre onto Apple's device. In that respect, it sits alongside the fab iQuiz.

What's more, it's pretty addictive when you first start, with the steadily-accumulating scoring system providing ample reason to keep pressing that button like a hypnotised lab-rat. And, of course, your music is the soundtrack, so as long as you haven't filled the iPod with stuff you don't really like, you'll obviously enjoy the audio side of Musika.

However, on the flip-side, the game itself is a bit lightweight and after a few plays you might find yourself getting a bit, well, bored. It doesn't quite nail the replayability factor, making this a game to admire, but not one to necessarily play for months.
