Hmmm… didn’t see this one coming. Tapulous, the developer of the mostly despised rhythm game series Tap Tap Revenge, have been bought out by Disney for an undisclosed price (so far). I personally didn’t enjoy much of their rhythm games, but almost all of them have soared to the #1 free spot within a matter of hours.
Along with the Tap Tap Revenge series, they have released the likes of Riddim Ribbon, which was suppose to augment an Audiosurf type of gameplay. With that said, here’s the pecking order:
Founders Bart Decrem and Andrew Lacy will become Senior Vice Presidents, reporting directly to Steve Wadsworth, President of Disney Interactive (Mashable).
This is definitely some large news though, as it seems like Disney is taking large steps to get into the gaming market. They’ve already released Jelly Car 2 along with Breakspin, both of which were actual games that have nothing to do with movies or TV shows.
We’re looking forward to what this buyout means, and hopefully Disney will make Tapulous produce some better rhythm games.
