VOEZ for iOS is a new popular game out of Taiwan that is vigorously climbing the app gaming charts. They actually have a part of Rock Band, part DDR, but in a karaoke-esque setting. To put simply, VOEZ is an anime-themed rhythm game.
The players need to tap, hold and swipe as colorful commands fall to the target line. You have only a few different moves, but the hardship of the game increases as you move on to more and more intense tracks. The best thing that felt different to me is how the fall lines shift and actively move as you play the level. In Rock Band where the game play is static, there is something unique about how the levels shift, pulsate and expand as you play passionately.
Developing the game is extra challenging, to me view at least, were the difficulty to-spot white dots and the slide hold that shifts the track as you play further. These were the game mechanics that impressed me up the most, but also make it more entertaining.
I was a bit amazed that I not only adored this game but that I was quite good at it. Despite the club-esque dance beats there is something to the rhythmic play of the game that makes it equal parts entertaining and relaxing. I tried the game on both my iPhone SE and full-sized iPad and learned that VOEZ is way simple and more thrilling on a smallish phone.
The users could enjoy unlimited play of approximately 10 free songs; the remaining songs requiring “keys” that you buy to unlock songs. There are several songs which range from mellow pop, rock or intense techno. The song lyrics aren’t in English, but don’t worry, the users could watch tutorials and navigate the game in four different languages, including English.
The key thing to note is that you require being on Wi-Fi to download the game. The main app would need about 200MB of space, with each additional song taking up another 5MB or so. Altogether VOEZ for iOS is fun and free on both iOS and Google Play.
