I like new and innovative games so when I saw this had gone to less than £10 I thought I'd give it a try and I'm really glad I did.
Its a simple game which just requires you to tap with certain rhythyms.
Very good for multiplayer parties as well especially the running game. If you want something for under a tenner to play at Christmas for a few hours I highly recommend this. Not the best game ever made but just solid good fun!
I bought this game for our two seven year olds. They played it on and off over the weekend but soon got board and when 'Sonic and The Secret Rings' came in the house it was all over.
The pros: It's cheap, it's a different and quite ingenious way to use the controllers, it's ascetically pleasing and original to look at and there are a variety of games. There's no violence, bad language, loud rock music or anything to keep a child awake at night. You could leave the room while the kids are playing this safe in the knowledge nothing bad will happen.
The cons: Although there are various games they don't really lead anywhere. For every level you complete the next one is the same just a bit harder. I can understand why children would find it a bit bland not very stimulating.
I think the pros outweigh the cons on this game but I think there's better games out there too.
As I have been a gamer for over 20 years with the good old ZX Spectrum being my first gaming machine. I always find it very exiting to find a game like Let's Tap which is original and most importantly is extremely playable by yourself or with friends and family. Let's Tap has five completely different modes for you to enjoy which are as follows: Tap Runner, Silent Blocks, Rhythm Tap, Bubble Voyager and Visualizer which are all controlled by tapping your fingers/hands on a box which your Wii Remote is laying upon. Tap Runner is my favourite party game where up to four people can race there little man across 16 different tracks which get harder as you progress because of the different traps and objects. You tap the box to make your man run and double tap it fast to make him jump hurdles or electric floating balls. Other dangers you will come across are larger pillers which go up and down which can flatten your man if he gets trapped underneath one. There are cool spring boards for you to jump off and tricky type-ropes for you to walk across. Silent Blocks is a cross between the game Jango and Puzzle League (Nintendo DS) which is easy to play but hard to master. You have to remove blocks from this large tall tower and try and match at least three colours of the same to get points. If you can't match your colurs up then it will be game over and your tower falls to the ground. You have a maker which goes up and down and when it reaches the block that you want to remove just tap the box. Sometimes if you are lucky or skillful you can have a chain of combo's. Rhythm Tap works by tapping in time with the markers on the screen as they pass your touch point. The darker the rhythm mark the harder you tap. My partner and five year old daughter like this party game best. There are over 16 songs for you to master your rhythm along to. Bubble Voyager is a space battle shooter which is crazy mayhem fun in four player mode with friends and family. You have this one screen in which you can fly from one side of to the other and you must try and blow eachother up with these huge rockets. To change direction in battlemode just don't touch the box and your rocket man rotates and once you are facing the way you want to go, tap away and then twice fast in order to fire from your big rocket gun. In single player mode your rocket man flys across the screen in a scrolling shoot 'em up which is bit like Jet Pac - ZX Spectrum cassette game - Ultimate Play The Game. You tap to make your rocket man fly and stop tapping to let him float downwards. To shoot you need to double tap as there are nasty mines and over objects which block your path. There are some nice little bonus items for you to collect such as the Starfish which varies by colour on what it does. Power Capsule restores your energy and Fire Shot launches a perimeter of fire to devastating effect. Last of all the 3 Way Shoot which fires missiles in three directions instead of one. Visualizer has you filling the night sky with beautiful fireworks. There are three different patterns which require a firm, medium and light tap. Paint, River and Ink are all good fun visual experiences. Gem Game is a tricky little game where you have to tap the box to throw your coloured balls up in air so that they go into containers.
