It’s been a while since the words “awesome”, “rhythm” and “game” have been featured in the same headline, but hey, these are auspicious times we live in. And Queen: Rock Tour is an awesome rhythm game that you can pick up from the App Store right now.
As you might be able to work out, the game sees you tapping your way through some of Queen’s greatest hits. There are 20 to choose from, with different difficulty settings, spread across a bunch of different tours from the band’s history.
Everything here is put together with love and care. This is as much an impressive retrospective of one of the biggest bands in history as it is an entertaining game. If you were worried about this being a soulless cash-in, well there’s no fear of that here.
The gameplay is challenging in all the right ways and there are some super smart touchscreen twists added that are going to keep your digits busy. Nailing a song feels like a real achievement, especially on the tougher difficulty settings.
There’s a real joy to Queen: Rock Tour, and on top of that it’s the sort of mobile game you’re going to find yourself hunched over for hours, chasing perfection. Basically, there’s loads to love here, even if you’re not a huge Queen fan.
