Tap Tap Dance

TIGSource’s own Mark “Golds” Johns has been crunching hard for a while now— during Gamma, even!— on Tap Tap Dance, the sequel to Tap Tap Revenge, the number one most downloaded free game for the iPhone (or so I’m told). And now his hard work has paid off.

I applaud Mark for the extra effort he gave in turning what would have been another Guitar Hero Cash-In with a ridiculous title into what is now a Legitimately Cool Game with a ridiculous title.* Ten thousand TIGS Points to you, sir!

Apart from the improved graphics and gameplay, Tap Tap Dance features exclusive tracks and custom Boss Stages for select songs. Kind of, like, interactive music videos. For example, Daft Punk’s Technologic takes you through a History of Technology as you play and Justice’s Phantom Pt II gives you a 2001-inspired laser light show. (Oh, and did I mention Cactus himself contributed a characteristically trippy stage?) Check it out.

* Seriously, though, there must have been better contenders than “Tap Tap Dance.” C’mon, now!

EDIT: Oops, I neglected to mention Kevin “Greater Beast” Coulton’s involvement in the project as well, because I am a big jerk. Go Kevin, go!
