Darren Murtha Design, developer of popular iOS apps such as Drawing Pad and Unnecessary Censorship, have released a new iOS game that challenges users to identify songs based on song previews from the iTunes Store’s Top 50 Hits. Users are presented with the iTunes song previews and are given a set of multiple-choice options to attempt to identify each song artist within a set time limit.
Points are earned for correct answers with more points for answering faster and additional multipliers for consecutive correct answers. Game Center and Facebook integration allow players to challenge their friends and try to earn achievements and since the app is based on popular music from the iTunes Store the songs and questions change automatically on a daily basis.
The basic version of Tuned is a free, iAd supported app that allows users to simply play the Top 50 Hits in single-player mode; a $1 in-app purchase unlocks additional game modes including two-player games, Top 100, Top 300 and all All Genres as well as removing iAds. Tuned requires a 3G or Wi-Fi connection and is available from the App Store as a free download.
