Every Android user probably has a music-themed app of their own, beyond their device’s default music program. Whether that is Spotify, Soundcloud or Google Play, many people now use their smartphone as their primary way to consume music. While music can be a soundtrack to commutes and social occasions, it can also provide the theme for a gaming session.
Here are three of the best Android music apps in 2019 that use music as the central element of their gameplay.
SongPop 2 – Guess The Song
This app from FreshPlanet lives up to its name, with players expected to try and identify the correct songs and artists from a music library featuring over 100,000 tracks. New playlists are released each week and you have the ability to ‘master’ a playlist. For example, you may prove to be a master when it comes to the songs of Bon Jovi.
This may sound like some fairly low-key entertainment, but SongPop2 can also get extremely competitive. You can compete against players from across the world in daily tasks, and you can challenge your friends in head-to-heads to show once and for all who is the music genius of the group. Speed matters too, as it is all about who identifies the right song and artist first. If you like music and you like quizzes, then SongPop2 is the ideal app for you.
DJ WÏLD takes a unique approach to the genre of online slots, with Elk Studios looking to marry the thrill of a DJ gig with the excitement of playing for the jackpot. Music often takes a backseat in slots, but here it is at the center of the reel-based action. In-game animations occur in sync to the soundtrack, which will appeal to fans of trance music.
The game itself is still classic slot fare which requires the matching of symbols on the reels, with 5 reels and 20 paylines on offer. LeoVegas is top of BonusFinder free spins list for December 2019, with the site also praised for working perfectly on Android mobile devices. Elk Studios created the game with mobile play in mind, so you can take the party atmosphere of DJ WÏLD with you on your portable device wherever you go.
Dream Piano – Music Game
Tap Lab has the perfect app for those who wish they could take a piano with them on their mobile, or for those who never quite mastered a physical piano beyond playing ‘Chopsticks’. Dream Piano is a great leveler that gives equal priority to speed and dexterity as to melody and rhythm.
Tap the tiles as they appear on screen to recreate some of the most famous tunes of all time, from classical melodies to pop hits. The gameplay is really that simplistic, but that is what makes it so compelling. To spice things up, you can also challenge friends to beat your score. There are many Android apps that do similar things to Dream Piano, but this is the app to beat – a 4.5/5 rating on Google Play from over half a million users is testament to that.
A notable mention should also go to Rock Hero. Its mechanics are similar to Dream Piano, but it pays clear homage to perhaps the most popular music video game of all time (hint: that game also has ‘hero’ in its name). Whether you like classical, rock or dance music, there’s an Android gaming app out there for you that should get both your toe and your finger tapping.
