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

Playlist 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. Playlist gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

Obviously, songs with a long title will score more points. “You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)” by the White Stripes gives you a lot more chances for big points than, say, “Big Time” by Peter Gabriel. So Musika tests your knowledge of your own music library (a bit, because it also displays the song title during each round). But it doesn’t necessarily test your knowledge of a song, specifically.

Ultimately, Musika features three difficulty levels—the difference is in the amount of time you have to react to each letter that forms or appears on the screen.

Musika’s hypnotic visual effects have also been put to good use as a visualizer. If you’re not particularly interested in playing with your iPod but just want to watch some pretty shapes and colors, Musika will definitely fit the bill—I’d love to see this appear as an iTunes visualizer, too.
