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

The iPod Observer is offering a new review of Phase for iPod, a new musical game compatible with 3rd generation iPod nanos, iPod Classics, and 5th generation iPods. Phase challenges players to keep up with the beat of their own music collections in a fashion similar to Guitar Hero and other rhythm games.

From the review:

Like Guitar Hero, Phase is a game of split-second timing -- clicking the proper doo-dads at just the right time and in time with the music.

Here's how it works: You start by selecting songs from your iTunes library and adding them to the special Phase Music playlist that appears in iTunes once you install the game. Then, choose a song from that playlist and get ready to rock.

As you listen to the song, "notes," the green circles in the picture below, come flying toward you. The object is to click the appropriate button on your iPod -- Previous ( |<< ) for notes on the left, Select (the middle button) for notes in the center, or Next ( >>| ) for notes on the right -- at precisely the right time.

To cop a phrase from Bryan Adams, I played it 'till my fingers bled. And I'm still playing it as often as I can. I must own half a dozen iPod games but this is easily the most addictive. I find myself playing songs again and again in a (usually futile) attempt to achieve a better (or perfect) score.
