It has been two and a half centuries since the world has been affected by the "Al Niente," a mysterious phenomenon that stripped colors and sounds away from the land, leaving it dreary and lifeless.

Every time you restore a location, the storyline will progress, revealed through an engaging picture book. The more you explore, the more items there are to be found. Adventure to see what will become of Fisica and Ritmo as you tap your way into making the world beautiful once again.

▲ Put your timing to the test as you tap to the rhythm of ten brilliant songs!

Cailie needs a quick thinker to accompany her in Akihabara, Tokyo’s Electronic Town. The music’s mixed and the bass is pounding, but she could use your help with the puzzles!

Start off with the future sounds of Track 1 and match identical shapes. As they come down from the top of the screen, you can change them (or not) by perfectly timing your roaming bar’s tap. Each successful change you make nets you a multiplier, but you will need four or more of the same shapes or colors to blast them off of the screen!

▲ Hit the moving pulse bar on the beat to change from one shape to the one featured up top.

▲ Unlock new places and play new games - now you need to match four or more of the same color.

▲ Change Cailie's outfit, your name, or spin that dial to 11 and rock Akihabara!

In addition to clearing the levels, there are also 15 different achievements you can get, such as Super Beat Master (clearing a normal campaign on turbo speed) and Bad Bead (complete campaign with no more than 50 bad hits)!

More than 15 tracks, 2 modes of play, and some pretty difficult achievements to get means that you might be in the groove for a while…but with these sick beats, enjoy the sights and sounds of Akihabara!
