Icon Pop Song
Icon Pop Song by Alegrium – Is a trivia app game where users are going to listen to an acoustic version of a popular song, and then guess either the name of the artist or song by filling in the blanks with letters given below.
I’ve played a lot of challenging games in my app-gaming-life. And to be honest, a lot of them hard and really make you think. But Icon Pop Song is definitely one of the top 5 hardest games I’ve ever played. Don’t get me wrong, I know my music pretty well; I’m up-to-date on all the latest hits! But I had a really hard time trying to guess those 5-7 second clips of acoustic music. The songs were clear and there were no glitches or bugs; Icon Pop Song was just a really hard game. Apart from Icon Pop Song being ridiculously hard, I really enjoyed the fact that Alegrium chose to go a different route with their standard, but innovative, icon style games. Instead of following the continuous trend (which they sort of started) of making an icon game out of songs!
Icon Pop Song has a very well-thought out structure, which makes the playability flow nicely. Although, it would be nicer if the song clips were a little longer…
It doesn’t get any more original than Icon Pop Song! So far, they’re still the only app-game like this!
As I mentioned before, I am pretty well-refined when it comes to my knowledge of music–both old and new. But Icon Pop Song made re-evaluate that preconceived notion.
