Tapulous have put out their much anticapted update to the original Tap Tap Revenge. This game brings the updated engine, first seen in Tap Tap Dance. Some of the new features include improved graphics, better online gameplay, and multi taps. There’s also an impressive library of songs, with Tapulous boasting over 150 with the app launching and new content available weekly.
With the success of the XBox Live service, achievements in this game seem to also be a move in the right direction. Here’s what Tapulous had to say:
We’ve also added a simple Career mode. Right now it’s mostly a set of Achievements, but we’re connecting it to your online rank, and you can grab a widget to show off your achievements to your friends on your blog, MySpace and elsewhere. In the coming months, Career Mode will get even richer.
As one of the leading games on the iPhone, Tap Tap Revenge 2 could easily be sold for ten dollars and still be a success. But the sales model Tapulous has chosen is an interesting one. They’ve opted to keep a core product free, and attract lots of users to the core product. Then, sell focused spinoffs to attract fans and sales and use the core product to advertise the spinoffs. It’s a model that is clearly working for them, and other developers are slowly adopting.
Tap Tap Revenge 2 comes with no price tag, and should be downloaded and tried by everyone. Check out the video below for a quick preview.
