As gaming consoles and platforms have become more popular, the music industry has released games where you can play, dance and sing along to your favorite tunes. Here are some of the best games to be brought out in recent years:
For all the wannabes Richie Hawtins or David Guettas out there, DJ Hero brings the dance music scene to your front room. The game is controlled by an electronic turntable, with gamers needing to flip and scratch their way through the on-screen beats and winning points for keeping in time with the music. The soundtrack is also top draw, with everything from pop dance tunes, to Nu Rave 90’s classics.
Guitar Hero: Metallica
Many music festival fans were skeptical when heavy metal giants Metallica were announced as one of the headline acts at Glastonbury, but my word they proved the critics wrong. Their own edition of the Guitar Hero hero series allows you to play along to Metallica’s epic back catalogue and the likes of Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters.
Vinyl Countdown is the perfect online slot for any lover or either music or gaming. The entire game is based on a 1950’s music theme, with the scatter symbols being glitter balls and tunes coming from the likes of Buddy Holly and the King himself, Elvis. With 9 play lines and 5 reels, Vinyl Countdown is a great way to try and earn some extra cash while playing the mobile casino game!
Do you think you can sing? Well Lips is the game for you to put your vocal chords to the test and prove your worth! Set up in a karaoke style, the aim of the game is to sing along to the lyrics and notes that appear on-screen, winning points for accuracy and keeping in tune. But make sure you sing your heart out, or you’ll be getting the Simon Cowell treatment from your friends!
Michael Jackson: The Experience
Michael Jackson is one of the best-loved musicians of all time, and this Nintendo Wii release plays a great homage to the King of Pop. Rather using your singing voice, The Experience is all about how well you can bust a move. Keeping in time to the dance routine that appears on-screen, players gain points for how well they can mimic Jackson’s grooving style.
