I don’t think it’s worth it to pay 20 for premiumBut also I don’t think it’s worth watching ads to get stuff or play and 20 dollars!? Who do you think we are super mega celebrity’s no then why make us pay for 140 dollars a year so wth man I’m still gonna have the game I just ain’t happy with the gameplay.Version:

OkThe game is fine but some songs you have to watch an add to play them. Also I think the fact that you have to wait 2-3 hours for a case to open is dumb. It’s kinda hard to get songs. It would be better if it was like beat blade where you can play all the songs you want. Idk what else to say but yeah.Version:

Terrible game all aroundAbsolutely RIDDLED with ads. You cannot play at your own accord and have to be forced with ads unless you pay for micro transactions or earn micro transactions which ultimately revolved around waiting forever or watching ads for micro transactions (which is very limited). The game lags on hard or extreme difficulty making the entire concept of the game pointless to play. I don’t care that you can “compete” with other online players, because you’ll be forced to watch ads if you want another try. If any game tells you to watch ads by any means, your time is NOT worth it here. These developers reply to reviews in the most rat way possible by saying “I hope you accept our changes and stick around for a while”. What? Fill your pockets with more money for your half assed attempt at a game? If it was successful, why does it need ads to be able to play longer? Sounds like they are exploiting addicts 1000% and sounds like anyone supporting this dev team is also in support of exploiting addicts. Please, everybody, just stop supporting phone games altogether as they all end up pulling these money schemes. BIGGEST main problem is that I /swear/ my games are rigged to lose so they make me watch more ads because the button registration is totally fine and for some reason the exact same key keeps acting messed up so theirs absolutely 0 reason that’s worth dedicating your time on the game and you’re bored by the first moment they want an ad out of you.Version:

Game has changed for the worstI used to play this game all the time but had it deleted for a short while due to space issues. When I redownloaded I’ve noticed a new system with the gems/boxes impacting play. Originally, from memory, you were able to continue playing with no open spots available if you sacrificed collecting more boxes, however now you can’t continue to play unless you have a free slot. I feel like this really takes the fun out of the game and I don’t play it as often as I’d like to. I find myself waiting for hours now to play and when I return I only have the one slot left which is only good for a few runs through a song. Don’t get me wrong, the game itself is great but having to wait so long has just diminished the joy I get from it now. Based on this I think I may end up deleting it soon. This is really disappointing as I enjoy the game so much..Version:

Can’t progressSeems like a poor idea to lock you out of playing until your boxes are opened- especially when that can be up to 5 hours of waiting. I get you need to make money but this is the only FTP game I’ve ever played that literally blocks you until you either wait hours or pay up. You can’t do anything until then..Version:

Limits on play timeI used to play this game all the time. It was super fun grinding particular songs for a good score. But now you just can’t do that? I took a break from the game before the change was made, and was pretty shocked when I returned. You can literally only play a few times and then you’re locked out for HOURS unless you pay up. Super anti-consumer decision. I’d honestly rather watch an ad every couple songs over this. I just wanna play your game. Please let me play your game. And if it’s not economically viable to revert back to how it was… then where is all this money even going? New songs are hardly EVER released, a few other rhythm games on the App Store aren’t as high quality but they at least have much larger catalogues. This app has SO much stifled potential..Version:

Takes too long to try againI failed a song twice, and on the third try it wouldn’t let me play because all my case slots were full of items that automatically got put in there and I can’t remove them. So now I can basically only play once every 3-8 hours depending on whatever is in the slot. Waste of time game..Version:

Awful awful gameWhen I first downloaded this game I was so happy to relive my tap tap memories. Over the months of playing, I’ve noticed there are too many flaws in this game. The game picks and chooses when you tap, gives you whatever score it wants you to, it will make out you’ve tapped too early or too late for no reason, and when having to double tap, one tap will be perfect+ and the other will just be perfect which ruins your chance of getting the perfect score. There’s no real “reward” from playing the game. Unlocking cards takes too long, the currency to unlock other items is way too high, and once you reach level 16 there is 0 progression beyond that. You have to wait 3-5 hours to unlock a case for it to only give you 1-2 cards. Everytime you complete and event, it only gives you tour points and no rewards so there’s no point in playing them either. The game is just a waste of time. The creators don’t want you to play as you just end up playing the same songs over and over again and then wait 3-5 hours just to repeat. It’s tedious, boring, and one big massive con. The game had so much potential but the more you play it, the more you realise the amount of time you have wasted as you get literally nothing out of it. Shame really. This could have been one of those games that everybody plays….Version:

Great game but very glitchyI love this game and some of the songs on there but the amount of times it glitches when I’m playing is ridiculous. Sometimes it doesn’t sense when I press the note so it thinks that I missed it when I didn’t. Then it mucks up my score and makes me fail the song. The timing of the audio often goes out of sync too even when I’ve recently synced it up. I’ve also noticed that the vibrations sometimes go out of sync with the game which messes up the game too. Wish there were more well known songs on there as well. Great game overall but definitely needs fixing up. UPDATE: It glitches literally every time I play and now you guys have added ads that play after every song. We already watch enough ads to claim rewards. You’re ruining the game. Fix up all the bugs you have or you’re going to lose a lot of money.Version:

Lack of care for playersGenuinely a great game. However I’m very disappointed with the blatant quick cash grab and disregard for the community’s enjoyment. They expect you to pay $9 a week to play more than 5 times every 3 hours and don’t even give you an option to restart if something out of your control ruins the game (phone call, notifications ect) it’s ultimately driven me to delete the game unfortunately. So much potential but that it’s taken away from the company’s greediness. Fix this issue and then this game would be great but for now not worth the phone space :/.Version:

Scummy Cash GrabDon’t waste your time unless you have a lot of it to kill, you’ll be using most of it to wait to play a song as for some ridiculous reason you can’t do so while your card box slot things are full. As for these, even though you’ve EARNT them, you have to wait between 3 and 5 hours to open them, which would be somewhat acceptable if the reward was actually decent. You’ll be locked out of playing the game 90% of the time, mainly due to these boxes and also due to the fact that it can take DAYS to unlock a single song after the introductory part of the game which is used to trick new players into thinking that the game is actually good. The leaderboards are dominated by hackers so good luck ever seeing your name on them. This will never be sorted as the devs care more about bleeding you dry than banning them. The events are rigged and rewards are poor unless you spend money on them, I’ve been locked out of one as I hadn’t purchased a song that was required to compete in it. This game prays on the rich and impatient, get an old 3GS and play TapTap instead!.Version:

Love the app, BUT needs works!I love the concept of the app. However, there definitely needs to be some upgradesn It definitely needs country / pop-country as a music genre!🤠 They 100% need MORE songs!🎵 They need to keep up to date with the latest trends and I can guarantee that the app will get so many more players if these needs are met!👀 I’m level 8 and I run out of songs to play all the time and find myself repeating all the songs over and over and I can’t level up unless I have access to more songs!😩 I also find myself not playing for ages if I’m waiting for cases to open or if I’ve run out of case space or songs to play.⏳ You WANT people to play the game MORE right? So why push them away?!🤷🏼‍♀️ Also.. sometimes the screen glitches or it says you haven’t hit a tile when you have? Very annoying haha!😂 We also need BETTER rewards in these song cases or in the spin-the-wheels because a couple of cards aren’t really helpful…🃏 More songs more frequently and less ads and you’ll be 5*!😍🏆.Version:

Good game until updateI am not the only one to say this, but until the new update the game was great. Now I can play all that I want, or I have to watch an ad or pay to play unlimited for 30 minuites? This is ridiculous and I might just delete this game now because I was okay to watch an ad to get a couple cards but this? This is ridiculous..Version:

Great Game but way too limitedI found this game recently and have been playing it nonstop but I am really irked by the box system. Taking time to unlock new music is fine but the fact it locks you out of playing until the box is opened? I don’t know if boxes take more coins at higher levels but for me that means I get to play 2 songs every hour and a half assuming I’m not opening a 5 hour box. And even the ads that let you bypass this run out! It’s like the game is encouraging people to either buy the ridiculously overpriced unlimited games for a week or play one song a day, people aren’t going to organise their schedule around when their next box is opening. It’s an amazing game besides that so please, let people play without rewards, I really need to beat my friend’s score..Version:

Good game if you want to payUnless you pay to play expect to Get bored very easily. Me and a few friends have played this game since before it’s global release and have uninstalled it as there’s nothing more for us to do. Have had the songs unlocked again since global release and those friends who have paid to play are still as bored as someone who doesn’t. I think developers should just make this be a buy app rather than a pay to play..Version:

I wish I could give 5 stars!I really do love this game and have got a little addicted to playing. However, like other reviewers, I can’t give 5 stars because as you progress through the levels the game slows down so much and it’s too hard to progress so I just loose interest. It takes forever to build up the cards to open a new song - in the early levels this was easy but it now requires 35 cards! When you can only open a few boxes per day it just gets impossible and I just stop playing. The cost of crystals to open the boxes is pricey and you spend them quickly. Please make it easier to unlock new songs and progress through the levels - keep the new songs at just 10 or 15 cards. I’d me more likely to spend money on crystals if I could do this as it just feels like a waste when I’m constantly on hold waiting for boxes to open that aren’t actually making much difference. I don’t want to pay for crystals to open a box of 3 cards when I need another 32 cards to unlock a song..Version:

Deleted AppBefore the new season update I had unlocked all the songs so I got unlimited play for free due to not being able to unlock any new songs until the new season had updated. A week later new season updates and I’m now not able to get any new songs because I have to level up, I’m about 12 stars away from levelling up which is 3 songs that I realise I’m guna have to buy so I delay for a bit and eventually end up buying, I level up and I’m STILL unable to get any new songs, not able to unlock any boxes or watch any ads because apparently theres no more songs to unlock but theres apparently plenty for me to buy and I won’t be able to get any new songs until I earn another 60 stars 😂 so what yous want me to buy all my songs now ? Seriously every new season update gets more stupid & worse 🥴 I’ve had enough & finally deleted the app..Version:

Good but some limiting featuresThis is among the few tap the tile games that I’ve enjoyed so far. I really like the overall appearance and design of the app and there is a vast variety of song choices. Despite this, there are some aspects I think could be improved more, which is why I only gave 3 stars. The most obvious thing to me is the fact that once the song box slots are full, you have to wait a stupid amount of time to be able to play another song. There is an option to spend gems but these are very hard to earn and I don’t want to spend real money on digital gems. I’ve seen others comment on this in the reviews too, so it’s a shared frustration and really needs to be improved in some way! Perhaps have shorter waiting times as no one wants to wait hours to be able to play again or just remove them overall. I think more people would be willing to play if that was the case. Overall though, it is a good game..Version:

Has potential to be a good game!This game could be so good but unfortunately the developers seem more in it for the money than the players. Don’t get me wrong the games great fun and so enjoyable….. until you’ve played like 5 songs and you have to wait till the next day before playing again without paying for a weeks unlimited play. £5 to play a game that you’ll go on for maybe less than an hour a day is very steep. And also the fact that when you do get the option for starting a song when you run out you can use adverts, but apparently after you’ve used 3 adverts they randomly become unavailable to you which means to even play the game you have to spend £5. It’s such a let down as the potential to be such an amazing day but the amount of money you have to spend to be able to play the game is ridiculous. Especially how you get 5 diamonds a day bonus and it costs 40 to open a music crate that doesn’t even have the potential to unlock it so you could spend loads of money for absolutely nothing. This game will bomb very quickly when people realise how much money you’d have to spend just carry on playing. What a let down..Version:

Frustrating lack of development of the gamePlease be aware that this game only has 18 levels. Developer has not developed new levels for this game for quite some time. It’s really disappointing that gameplay after a while becomes collecting all the songs you already have but this time called a deluxe edition. What an appalling idea and this kills the whole point of the game which is collecting new songs. You have to collect a ridiculous amount of cards for a song you have already earned before. What is the point in that?? The developer needs to focus on developing the actual game rather than rehashing old content. Then maybe they will make money out of features like unlimited play that people won’t mind paying for given actual content is there. No point for old content. Sort this out Beatstar there is no point in a game where you can’t progress through levels. Completing this game at the moment doesn’t take long and then it becomes pointless pretty quickly..Version:

The game becomes a trashI liked to play this game. I’m not too old player of this game, but i want to tell you something. I started to play this game in June of 2022 year. I really liked the game from my first view. I'm playing every day and get satisfaction from the music. I also became stronger and got my first perfect diamond. However, one week ago the game started to become a general trash. Ads began to appear after each song played. The game positions itself as 9+, but the ads are clearly 18+. Advertising of casinos and sports betting should not be in such games and quantities. It wasn't like that before, you could watch the ads for a reward if you wanted to, but now the ads appear after each song. The game began to turn into standard garbage, which was made in 2 hours to earn money from advertising and hangs in the tops of the App Store. Dear developers, if you do not want to lose your audience and players, money for donations, then I ask you to remove the ads that appear involuntarily after each song played. I am the same player as thousands of people in this game and I can say with confidence that a lot of people are unhappy with the latest changes in the game related to ads..Version:

I love this game, but ….There was a new update recently i think and they made it so to play another song you NEED to open another music box thing by using your gems i absolutely HATE THIS, i had 200+ gems saved up and the game made me spend them all or i wouldn’t be able to play another song i DESPERATELY need this to be changed. this used to be my favourite game. the system used before was fine, why change something that wasn’t broken. my review will stay at 1☆ until this gets fixed. i’m even considering deleting this game, spending all my gems for cards isn’t worth it..Version:

You don’t care about your players at all!!I keep hearing that you listen to your players opinions and take that into consideration. But every time I’ve mentioned glitches and incorrect beats, I get ignored!! I’ve sent email after email, and even messages through Twitter to try and get your attention, but all I get is ignored!! So I have no choice but to keep rating and reviewing negatively till this issue gets fixed. Sensitivity need to be fixed, beats need to be fixed and actually placed on a the beat, and there is a bug that randomly hits a note before it comes near the tap bar, sometimes this bug taps a seperate note as I tap the actual beat, causing that one to be missed and another beat to be tapped again causing me to loose my streak or the song altogether. I love this game. But I’m appalled by the extent that I’m being ignored. There is multiple issues affecting my gameplay I’ve pointed them out multiple times, I know I’m not the only one, as others have mentioned they have the same issues. but I keep hearing no reply. I’m waiting for an updated so I can actually play the game without issue. Fix the issue, and I’ll happily change my review to 5 stars, as I believe this game deserves it. Otherwise I’ll keep reviewing and rating it badly till someone pays this a little attention. Thanks :).Version:

StupidWhy can’t I play more than a couple songs at a time? You need a case slot to be open in order to play and it takes hours to unlock a case. Also, when I am able to play a song, it tells me I missed a tile before that tile even passes and then it just ends. How could I possibly miss something that hasn’t happened yet?.Version:

It’s okay but takes too long to get new songsPlaying part is pretty good. Animations are nice and smooth. However you need to wait 3-5 hours to open a box. And you don’t even get new songs from the boxes. To get a new song you need to open a few boxes which could take up to 10 hrs..Version:

Fun Game Ruined by MicrotransactionsNothing makes me delete a game faster than being forced into spending money on loot boxes and in game currency. The TL;DR - avoid this game until they make changes to their loot box system. The insta-death after missing one note is annoying, but it’s not game breaking. Not being able to continue playing until you open your loot boxes? (Which, I might add, can take upwards of 5 hours to unlock, and you can only unlock one at a time). No thanks. Microtransactions should be optional, not a requirement to play the game. I noticed there was an option to purchase unlimited plays, but it was only for a month duration. Games like this SHOULD NOT have a subscription. I would’ve gladly made the one time purchase. Once you guys pull your heads out of your rears, and either significantly decrease the amount of time it takes to unlock a loot box, or allow me to play without the need for having a loot box slot open, then I’ll consider redownloading this. I suggest others avoid this game as well..Version:

Those darn boxes!!I’m going to echo everyone else here. Sadly. I LOVE this game! My son loves this game! We have a little competition going to see who can get the higher score on each song. That is, we love it when we can play it. The three boxes fill fairly quickly (which is nice) but then rather than being able to simultaneously “open” boxes or offering an ad to speed things up you have to do them one by one. Some take 3 hours, some take 5 hours, and once those boxes are full… you can’t play anymore. Unless you spend your hard earned (because they are hard to earn), or paid for diamonds. I would like nothing more than to be able to keep playing while I wait for the boxes to open (still collecting the points required to fill the boxes you understand). Other than the agonising wait, I look forward to being able to play and unlock more songs. Hopefully with new updates even more songs will be added??! Who knows?! Anyway, without the box issue it would be a 5* game..Version:

Great game but let downThe actual game mechanics and music are good compared to similarly styled games. And if it actually let you play, I could imagine myself being lost in this for hours. However, a few issues became apparent that led me to just give up on it. First if you miss tapping on a note, it’s game over rather than just losing points. On harder songs, this makes it quite frustrating and I find it more stressful than fun. It would be more enjoyable if it let you finish the song. Secondly, it’s very cumbersome to actually play thanks to the confusing menu layouts and various points, stars, badges and gems, chests, ‘gifts’ etc that flash all over the place every time you finish a song. I just want to play! But unfortunately unless you want to pay extortionate amounts, once you’ve completed the tutorials you can only really play 3 songs every few hours..Version:

Stupidly glitchy.Doesn’t register taps, lags, and will at times be off beat entirely. Getting “great” when in the perfect zone or having a tap be missed is super annoying..Version:

Very LaggyI have been playing this game for a while with my iPhone XS and enjoying it a lot. Recently upgrade my phone and still tried to play the game but it just lags everytime I play. The way the tiles move is not smooth as before and just skips which is annoying. Don't know why the game does it but I can't enjoy the game as much as I enjoy it before :((.Version:

Best in the genre but has its floorsWithout a doubt this game is the best of its kind. The detailed interfaces, vibrant colours, intuitive “beat” patterns and a fantastic selection of songs to unlock. However it’s all drawn back by the monetisation choices. You can either monetise to give those that pay more options or you can restrict the game from being able to be played for a long time and monetise the ability to actually play the game and that’s exactly what’s been done. After you’ve collected 3 boxes, you have to watch ads to play each song, after you’ve watched so many ads to play, you can’t play at all? Unless you pay of course… my best advice to anyone been frustrated by this is, if you know you’re not going to get 5 stars in the song, force close the game before the countdown/final review to prevent unlocking your final box, otherwise you will end up having to watch ads to play and eventually unable to play at all..Version:

This game is very Pay To WinThe game overall is very fun. there are a couple of songs that DO NOT match up with the beats. which make it very hard to get max rating on it/diamond rating. i’ve gotten so much better at the game, ever since i started it’s all about repetition. what bothers me is that it takes 350 points to unlock a case. a complete of a song is 150 points and you can have 3 cases at a time. so by playing 9 songs you fill up on cases and can no longer play songs (unless you pay with gems or money). the worst part is cases take either 3 hours to unlock or 5 hours. the cases reward you with cards. at first the song cases only take 5 cards to unlock but as you go along they get up to 30 cards needed to unlock. the 3 hour cases give you about 3 cards and the 5 hour cases give you about 5. so it takes many days to unlock a single case. i’ve been playing this game for about a month and i have about 60 out of 300+ songs. one person took an entire year to get all the songs. it would be different if the cases took 30 minuites or an hour, but you have to wait the time or spend gems(money). this game is cool for what it is but i’m sick of playing the same songs over and over and over and gaining no real reward for doing well on them (getting gold, platinum, or diamond doesn’t give you an rewards and doesn’t effect the case progression). if you want to play with game 9 times a day only then go for it. but i wish i wouldn’t have wasted my time :/.Version:

Disappointed with Beatstar3 days ago I would have gave this game 5 stars no problem, I loved this game, since the update you can’t even play any songs once your case slots are full, I could handle the somewhat pushy in app purchases before, but completely making the game un-playable just to push players to buy gems is just sad in my opinion, ruined the game for me and many others. Edit: How this will improve the game is beyond me, Greedy developers..Version:

Good game, however….Premium is extremely expensive, yes I’ve brought premium a few times however it’s not worth the money, the game glitches every time I upgrade, crashes mid song & swears I did not tap a tile in the right hand lane when in fact I did. Having to wait 5+ hours before playing again is extremely frustrating, there’s no way to get new songs unless you un lock chests or purchase. There needs to be more options around playing without waiting and also a better way to get gems without having to pay after already paying for premium..Version:

Ads ruined the gameUsed to be good, enjoyed it until it starts to miscount my clicks, either a trick for you to spend 3 gems or game performance issue. Last update, the developers suggested to leave the game on main screen for 5 minutes before start playing, just basically telling you to download the ads needed, otherwise the gameplay is appalling. Recent play, miscount my click 3 times in a row, getting more anger than the fun now. Thanks for the developers made this into an ads watching app that allows you play one song for a break before next ad!.Version:

At least save the gameEvery time my internet stops for just a second it kicks me from the song I’m doing, even if I’m at the end. Please fix this, Thanks..Version:

Used to be a 5 star gameThis game was one of my top playing games. Adds were only when you wanted more play time or you wanted extra additional stuff without paying. because of the adds only being required when we wanted them this game was an a deal game for my household…. Now we have adds right after every song. Giving the game a week, it no longer has the appeal it used to if I can’t chose to watch an add or not. Maybe if they go back to adds when you want to keep playing or for extra rewards I will be back but it doesn’t seem to be..Version:

"What if Tap Tap Revenge was a predatory gacha game?"I am a big fan of rhythm games and have fond memories of playing various iterations of Tap Tap Revenge on my early iPod Touch. This game is very much in the same vein as it, and is incredibly well-polished and a lot of fun to play --- when the game lets you. Instead of selling you a full game and songs for a few dollars, you can buy some gems to randomly unlock a song which you can only play until your case slots, which are how you collect increasing numbers of pieces to unlock more songs, are full and then you must wait for 3+ hours or spend real money to open them and keep playing. The song selection is great, the controls feel responsive, and it's a lot of fun to try to go for a new high score and increase your star ratings. It's just such a shame that the progression system aggressively doesn't want you to play the game for more than a few minutes every few hours unless you pay money. The latest changelog announces a plan to allow unlimited play but there are no details released at time of writing and I don't have high hopes that it will be reasonably priced, as this system is clearly designed to extract as much money as possible from players. EDIT: The unlimited play was released and is $5/wk. While it comes with gems, it definitely comes across as a cash grab when there are people like myself who just want to play the game without spending $20/mo for the extra gems..Version:

Would have great, but infuriating instead -- UNPLAYABLEWould NOT recommend. The design of the app very sleek, and it's good fun to play. Major drawback is that the game actually discourages you from playing after like 3 or 4 games because it makes you wait hours to unlock a new slot. Even if I were willing to spend money, the prices are just ridiculous. 6 pounds to play for one week??? For a year maybe, but not one week!!!! Won't continue playing because if I fancy playing a game I actually want to play it for longer than 5 minutes... In summary, what promises to be a good game is a major letdown because it is actually unplayable for more than three rounds. In addition, there are some annoying bugs on my iPhone (latest iOS). I always have to swipe up and down TWICE to either see the notifications or close the app...Super annoying! Sometimes the game is glitchy and music isn't playing properly which leads you to make mistakes and restart which is incredibly frustrating as you only get three games before you have to wait hours again (I am not using headphones so nothing to do with sync and have good WiFi)..Version:

Such a simple change and this app will be number 1Idk why there is a certain amount of times that you can play a song that is a horrible and annoying feature that you guys put on this amazing game you think by doing that you would make more money but that is creating the opposite effect people will wanna pay less when something annoying like that happens like look a clash Royale for an example when your chests get full you can still verse people and battle them as much as you want and that’s why their game is still one the top 10 best games and if you can make that simple change not only will I spend more money on the game but I would recommend this game to all my friends but with an annoying feature like that it makes Me believe you guys the creator are very scummy. Do this change and you guys will 100% be billionaires by the end of the year.Version:

Great game, but..It’s a great game, well made, great songs and it’s fun to play them all… but… it becomes a blatant “we want you to spend money” grab after a little while. Adding Eminem into the game? Awesome, oh wait, you have to spend 175 gems to unlock a single song. And why increase the amount of coins needed to spin during an event from 10 to 12? Just seems like unnecessary inflation. Probably done with this game now that I’m running out of new songs to play without paying a ton of money for it..Version:

Used to be goodThis game was enjoyable up until they removed venues. the lack of songs, the constant lag and not being able to play without an open box slot is what caused me to delete this game. terrible, just a money grab now..Version:

Fun but sucksI like the game, it’s really fun and really nice. But with these stupid boxes I couldn’t care less about I can’t play the game until five hours has passed and even then I only get like 2 plays. If I want to actually sit and play it would take 15 hours of waiting at the minimum just to open boxes and get more great songs I can’t play more then twice. Y’all need to fix this trash. I’m an impatient person but 5 hours per box is just retarded. Especially when by the end you have maybe 6-9 minutes of play time. Edit: I’ve done some further looking, this update has been met with outrage and complete utter disappointment. Honestly after literally an eternity of reading the things people had to say (and still not being able to play the game after that time) I must say I’m truly disappointed. I don’t feel this was a difficult decision because if it was you would’ve reversed it from this feedback. It’s not going to help you guys in the long run, it’s clearly affecting peoples enjoyment of the game. People should go before price. Y’all greedy..Version:

Coming back to the game disappointedI have left this game for a long time and as I got back on it today I was really excited with events coming back and all the new songs added. However, after playing for 30 minutes or so I realised something new has changed for the absolute worst. That’s the ability to not be able to play an infinite amount of songs based on the crates you have collected. I feel like this is horrible because now I can’t practice songs over and over again to perfect them. Now I have to wait for hours just to play again. The ability to play infinitely was one of the reasons I absolutely adored this game but now that’s gone. It seems like the developers just want a money grab now since the game has gotten so popular. Really disappointed….Version:

Has potential to be the best beat game of all timeLet me start off by saying that I am a huge fan of beat-based games and am also under no delusion that Supercell is trying to make some money by keeping certain features locked. I think Supercell as a production company actually does a really fantastic job of making their games playable without having to shell out extra cash to keep advancing unless you really want to. I feel like they’re missing the mark with this game because the songs unlocked can get stale pretty quickly as you wait for more boxes to unlock based on an arbitrary number of hours. Onto the game play. I have played probably every beat-based game on the market and I have to say Beatstar has probably the best collection available. The game design is beautiful and well executed. But, I’m not sure having only three columns to hit the beat makes the game any better or more enjoyable than other games, which have made four columns sort of the standard. If anything, it’s made the game feel a little underwhelming. There is a serotonin-release satisfaction in getting in the zone and hitting hundreds of notes in a row, and unfortunately I haven’t felt anything close to that from this game - which is a real bummer considering it is beautiful to look at and the catalog is fantastic. I want to love this game but it’s just not all there for me..Version:

Good but….Game is great concept and addicting however between the amount of adds you have to watch in order to play a decent amount of songs and the fact that the better you do means the more adds you have to watch combined with the bug that makes the game say you have pressed and kissed a note that has not even made it into the screen while also acknowledging that both your fingers are mid hold sort of ruined it for me. I had to spend gems when i should t of due to it saying a missed a note when i didn't and i had to use them to continue to so g or loose my progress but if i ended the song i would have to watch an add to play another song since 3 box’s is the limit. The basic idea of the game is great but all these things tip the scale on the pros and cons..Version:

Your new update insn't that fun it basicly makes it unplayableBoo, not that fun. i want a new game now in place for this one..Version:

Good but too much focus on in-app purchases and advertsThe mechanics of this game is brilliant and reminds me so much of tap tap revenge. It’s addictive and sometimes too difficult which is what makes this app so exciting to use. Unfortunately, there is little variety in what music to play - long wait times to unlock songs unless you bought a pack. If you wanted to use an ad to play a game, just out of entertainment without any gain within the game - that is also limited. I understand there is ‘big’ songs which can hold back on how many times you can play something due to licensing etc. but when I played tap tap, they also played artists you had never heard of, which is why 3oh13 became big. The model of this game is working so far, but it’s becoming short lived for me and I will lose interest in a week due to the long wait times in between ‘packs’ Edit; the game seems to be crashing a lot, going slow every now and again. The only solution is to reset my iPhone. I have an iPhone 11 max pro.Version:

Was a great game..Have had this app downloaded for ages and used to really enjoy spending hours on it, often watching the ads etc for the extra card drops. When I relaunched today i see they’ve now limited the amount of times you can play before you have to wait for a crate to open to play again. The alternative to this is pay $9 per week. Which is insanely expensive for a mobile app. Considering just deleting the app now and wouldn’t recommend anyone gets invested unless you want to spend lots of money on it..Version:

Fun game butFun game but I can only play 3 ish songs before I have to wait hours for the box to unlock. Wish you could keep playing songs in your collection while waiting for the boxes to unlock.Version:

Good but suggestionsI play this game so much I got my sister to play too, I’m actually having an anxiety attack right now bc I am trying to get all 5 stars on my songs and I only have 4 songs left with 4 stars and I’ve been going at it for so long I can feel my heart beating fast and I’m shaking so I need a break. But my only suggestion is like less ads. At a certain point in playing you need to watch an ad before EVERY song you play. And they are the same ads that are all soooo long. It gets annoying. Also I get a bunch of songs that I either don’t know or hate I think you should be able to search for songs and like them so they could be added to the genre box or the like box instead of having songs you don’t even know or dislike. Update: I spun and got 50 deluxe cards so I unlocked the hardcore version of the middle and I just want to beat it I keep getting stuck at the same part BUT AFTER ALLLLLLL THE ADS THIS GAME HAS MADE ME WATCH IT WONT LET TO WATCH AN AD AGAIN TO PLAY THE SONG BECAUSE “ITS NOT AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW” WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU WHY ARE YOU SUCH A TEASE JUST GONNA LET ME GET ADDICTED TO THIS GAME AND THIS SONG AND THEN MAKE ME WAIT FOR IT WHY WHY WHY WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME AND IF YOURE GONNA MAKE ME USE 30 OF MY GEMS TO PLAY THE GAME MAKE IT MORE THAN 30 MINUTES FOR REAL WHY MAKE A GAME IF YOURE GONNA BE THIS WAY I UNDERSTAND YOUR MONEY HUNGRY BUT DONT LIMIT THE ADS IF YOURE GONNA HAVE THAT OPTION AT ALL TEASE.Version:

Good but…Once all the boxes are full you can’t even play songs anymore?? That’s no fun at all. Wouldn’t you rather your customers could play the app as often as they’d like instead of making them wait for hours and hours to unlock a box?.Version:

Greediness killed the radio starSuper fun game, but since the update, can’t play if all the boxes are full. Then you either have to watch ads all the time or pay to play…… I have deleted this app as the makers are obviously super greedy..Version:

BIG BUGSo let me start off by saying I absolutely adore this game! It's one of the best rhythm games on the market that includes actual songs that you might have in your playlist rather than a generic tune. I've been playing it for a couple months now and have gotten pretty far and gotten better. However, about a couple weeks ago I started to notice some pretty big lag spikes in the middle of some songs. Now this might just be my internet but I normally don't have issues running much higher demanding games. I shrugged this off as a little glitch that was annoying but not unable to work around. NOW I've noticed a MUCH bigger bug that has happened on both my game and my boyfriends. When tapping through a song there is a tendency for the far left column to not register your tap at all! This is incredibly frustrating if you have a series of double taps and the note just cruises on by right under your thumb, leaving you dumbfounded on if you tapped it or not. It does not only happen on fast songs such as extreme or hard though, I've also witnessed it on incredibly slow easy songs where there is no way I could have missed it when my thumb is right ontop of it. I really hope this gets fixed in the next update because it is slowly making the game unplayable!.Version:

Cash grabThis game has amazing game play and really nice and smooth graphics however it’s become a cash grab. You can only play 3 times before having to wait hours and we can only open one box at a time - unless ofc you’re willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money. We can’t even do replay. As someone who’s been playing from the beginning this is such a let down. It used to be a comfort game and I would use it to calm me down bc it would help refocus me during a meltdown as I’m autistic and now I’m unable to do that. Very disappointing.Version:

Small glitchesI really do enjoy playing this game, but it’s becoming unplayable. I loved rockband and guitar hero growing up and this is kinda similar. My biggest issue and real annoyance with the game are the glitches. I was just playing a song, mid song my phone/song froze up for a second and it made me miss the notes and failed me out of the song. The other issues I’ve had are similar to that, sometimes I press too lightly(?) on the buttons and it doesn’t register and then fails me out of the song. Other times I clearly tapped the button but it doesn’t register that I did, I’ve changed the pressure of the taps as well and it hasn’t made any difference. Then i have to use gems to save myself or fail myself out of the song. Quite irritating. Edit: after looking through more reviews I’m debating wether to keep this app or not. Other players have described the same exact problem I have had and it almost seems like another paywall. Fail us out of the song at the very last stages so we spend all our gems and eventually have to buy more gems to continue playing the songs. No thanks. The reviews I read with the same problem as me were almost a year old. It’s pretty clear it’s a purposeful paywall tactic. This is really disappointing, this game has so much potential and it just feels like a scam at this point..Version:

Limited play timeBeatstar use to be really fun and don’t get me wrong it still is but I stopped playing a while back due to storage problem and when I come back I find myself unable to play songs once the three slots are full. This leaves with little to no play time. I believe this may be a way of trying to get people to spend more money on gems however it takes the fun out of it as you find yourself playing two songs then waiting ours until you are able to play again. This is such a shame because it would be so good if this feature wasn’t added in the first place. I find it almost pointless to get on for 10 mins just to wait 8 or so hours to be able to play another 10 mins. I believe this needs to be fixed before going global and all that stuff because it really is killing the game..Version:

Too badNew update means more pubs😩. It was really good prior to that. Now it just annoying..Version:

Not for everyoneI feel it targets only a certain generation . Also everyone brain works different from 10 years old to 60 years old . If your not gifted at age of 40 forget about hard and extreme ,only practicing at the age of 10 will you be able to do extreme . Also There are no options of era’s of music just random picked categories that you hope to get something that interest you play . I am sure it hasn’t reached its full potential and maybe it has and is content with the random players that drop $5 occasionally or nothing at all . There should be more generation groups playing to generate more money potentially . Make an easy mode for the elderly . Keep them wanting to come back not get frustrated and bored and then deleted . Make selections better than only one generation listens to . It seems you focus on pop and rap that is given even in a wish list . Ever heard of Armik Lagrimas de guitarra ? Or Oingo boingo Dead mans party ? Alice In Chains Rooster? Or if they want to hear a real challenge Estas Tonne internal flight . Open your generation gap and watch the money flow in . Even make an 80’s theme ,where’s the country ! George strait , Garth brooks or Charlie Daniel band . Micheal Jackson had a lot of number one hits where is that ? . ? Like I said do you want to fill your pockets or the developer’s content already let us make our own list to show the world . How awesome they can be ..Version:

Fix itI’m a regular player who has somehow managed to get several friends hooked on this game. However as much as we love it there’s a bug we can’t overlook. Sometimes the response to tapping or holding bugs out and doesn’t register. Even when you are 110% certain you tapped the screen because you could feel it under your fingertips, the game simply won’t register it which results in either your streak being broken or being forced to pay a few gems because it was missed entirely This is a great game, but this is a game-breaking bug and it causes nothing but frustration. Needs a fix ASAP EDIT: Upon playing for another 2 months before this draft was made, I’ve realised this happens much more commonly when you can potentially unlock something that could otherwise be purchased with gems. Not saying it’s more than a coincidence, but yeah it looks like it’s more than a coincidence.Version:

Good game, disappointing experience.Very well designed game, with good song selection and smooth gameplay. It’s a shame that the developers don’t want you to actually play the game. I downloaded the game today and played for less than an hour before I was simply stopped from playing because you cannot play the game with case slots full. I understand that the game needs to make money somehow, but I wasn’t even given enough time to get hooked onto the game before I was forced to stop. Now I will only be able to play a few times in a row before not being allowed to play until a case is unlocked. I enjoy the game but this inconsistency will probably lead down to deleting the app eventually, since I will open it less and less..Version:

One of the best rhythm games I’ve ever played BUT…..This is by far one of the best rhythm games I’ve ever played. The level actually get difficult and the songs are really well known and good. There is a very steep learning curve going from normal to hard difficulty but it’s fun to replay songs and get better each time. There is one huge draw back however. As you play levels you get points, these points unlock crates. Most crates take 1.5 hours to open and at the end you get a new song or cards towards a new song. This is a good system HOWEVER you can only have three crates at once. And unlike other games with this system, you can ONLY have these three crates. If you fill up all of your slots you can’t play for AN HOUR AND A HALF. Once you’re done waiting you have another five minutes of play time until you have to wait again. This gets even worse if you have to unlock a FIVE HOUR CRATE. This basically forces you to spend gems and thus money if you want to play the game for more than a few minutes. If it wasn’t for this feature I would give the gave all 5 stars and write it down as one of the best mobile games I’ve played by far, however with this feature, all the fun is taken out of it. I hope and pray the developers will allow you to play with full crates but I have a feeling there is too much money to be made. If the feature is ever changed then I will happily change my review to 5 stars..Version:

Love the game but…The game is amazing & super fun to play? If you choose you don’t have to spend a penny how ever I decided to purchase the pass which was £13 yeah a bit expensive but I thought I like the game why not. Upon purchasing I soon realised that you didn’t get unlimited play? I was a bit annoyed at this fact when paying £13 for the premium access you’d expect to get these perks of it for the price. You don’t how ever you still can only play a few games before you’re hit with this wall where you have to pay for 50 gems to then get access to unlimited play? It makes it no fun and I just end up going days not playing because of this reason? Surly paying £13 would give you access to u limited play but no. Before purchasing I found there wasn’t many songs, I wasn’t gaining a lot of gems needed to buy more songs & again I’d just keep getting to the play point where you couldn’t play anymore? I think it’s a huge downfall in the game having this barrier in place..Version:

Can’t play a lot of the best songs anymoreNow that a failed tap or swipe stops the entire song it feels more frustrating than satisfying. I used to play along to my favourite songs no matter how difficult it was to get perfect cause it was fun to tap along, now I can’t play past the first 2 stages of some of my favourites. I bought gems to spend on songs I didn’t have yet not to revive myself cause I missed a note. There’s a reason why pay to play places like arcade rooms have been on the decline. If the change doesn’t revert itself then I’m definitely not buying anymore gems and I’ll just go back to listening to these songs on YouTube, tapping on my dresser and all it costs me is my battery power.Version:

Forced Fail MechanicI’ve been playing guitar hero and games like it for years on top of getting a degree in music. I’m not bragging at all but I swear after doing well for a decent period or getting consecutive diamond ranks on songs something makes you fail or mess up. For instance tonight 4/27 it said I failed to swipe a note and it wasn’t even close to the tap/play/hit area and my fingers weren’t close enough to the screen to register a tap. It’s obnoxious to “miss” a note or not get perfect plus when you know you hit it. (I’m not saying I’m perfect at this game) but there are obvious times when you can tell you’re on beat or with the lyrics and you miss or not get perfect plus. Aside from that I really enjoy this game. A few recommendations, there needs to be a song recycle option so you could play songs you actually enjoy listening to. I know there’s probably licensing issues there. A few more modes would be nice and a multiplayer that’s not just beating ranks though I don’t know how simple that’d be on a phone system. Edit 1: I’m asked to contact support describing my issue. Please reread my review it’s clearly stated. Edit 2 thank you for passing this concern along. I remembered my other recommendation. A practice mode would be absolutely great for songs like Du Hast and Gimme Chocolate. I was reading some other reviews and I agree with the case thing being annoying. 2 cards per obnoxious bingo money making ads and 28+ more to go..Version:

An amazing game but..I love this game a lot and love my time with it so far, all the songs are great and the gameplay is very nice and easy. My only gripe is just that the battle pass is $15, which I think is very over priced especially when they put amazing songs behind such a heavy pay wall. That is really my only problem with the game in my eyes and that is what is holding it back from a 5 star. Edit: so after playing for around 1 hour and 30 minutes in one day I just saw that I have to wait around 3-5 hours to be able to play again, this is an extremely stupid feature and forces you to stop playing such a well made game. There is no point in this and it should be removed as it makes playing the game tedious. These tedious and down right stupid features are what bogs this game from being good, very disappointed that they made a feature to discourage players from playing their game. Edit #2: So after a good 2 months of playing I really love this game, but have come across a major issue that me and many others have spoken about. Why is it when you get perfect+ does the color not change? I feel that it would help out very much while playing and make the game more rewarding as you know if you are doing well or not. So yeah just a complaint I have heard from myself, friends and many others please fix this.Version:

Fun, but you can’t really play it.This game is really fun, coming from someone who almost never plays mobile games, good songs, and gameplay that will make you come back wanting more. Though my main issue is I can rarely play it. They prevent you from playing after earning a certain number of boxes, you earn boxes from completing songs and getting coins, it takes up to 5 hours to open one box, leaving me stuck, and unable to play unless I want to pay Gems to open a box immediately..Version:

I thought better if itI initially really enjoyed this game… for about an hour. After that, you had to watch an ad to play each song ONCE. If you failed, another ad, different song, another ad. It is too much. So because I was having fun I bought a $15 package that came with a song and some extra diamonds. When I went to play a song again, I had to continue to watch ads. I figured paying $15 would at least allow me to play what I just bought, BUT NOPE. After realizing this I reached out to support and waited 3 DAYS for a response only for them to say, nope, we don’t offer refund and basically said to read the items in the box better. Honestly I am extremely disappointed and as much as I really was enjoying this game now I just feel like I have to keep it to get any worth out of my purchase. This game need to offer a way to play endlessly and not have to watch an Ad BEFORE EVERY SONG. While you have the option to pay $5 for unlimited plays, it only last the week and that is ridiculous, people don’t want to have to pay weekly for a game. Most games on here don’t even cost that much. Either this or they should sign up with the Apple Arcade to at least offer unlimited to people that pay for that subscription. Overall while I enjoy the idea of this game I feeel it is a total ripoff and could offer their players better incentives..Version:

SuggestionsWell I applaud the game for its level of polish, I find the monetisation very confusing. Like, I understand a free to play game has to make money somehow, but not being able to unlock the songs I want is annoying. In the game, you unlock boxes which give you random cards that go towards unlocking songs of a certain genre. There is virtually no way to actually get a specific song that you want, whether that be from grinding or paying. This removes any sense of freedom of choice from the game and can lead to a lack of interest in the game when the songs you want are unobtainable. I suggest a sort of shop which catalogs all the songs in the game, which can be bought with in-game currency. This way, players can play what they want, it will motivate them into playing more to earn currency, and most of all, the developers don’t lose any money as there will still be people who choose to pay to unlock the songs..Version:

Needs some work - don’t lose your fans!I LOVE this game, I spent some hard earn money on this app (over 100$+) and I play it daily. However, if it wants to keep the fans long term there needs to be some changes. Some of the packs I bought didn’t come with the songs it said it did. It came with cards to open cases 😑 I spend money and I don’t even get what I paid for. It’s enraging. Most will agree with me there needs to be more levels than just normal, hard, and extreme. There should be an easy and mild level. You have to train yourself to think normal is do-able. My extreme gamer friends even had a hard time with this game. Hard is borderline impossible to get more than 4 stars and even when you’re perfect it says you’ve done great. Look, I know y’all are just trying to get more money but if you make the system flawed you’re only going to lose players. I’m also sick of the cases- just give us the songs- 30 cards to open a case? Bffr. Also please add more genres. You can tell the developers love country music which like that’s great and all but add some more variety because I keep getting songs I don’t want. Maybe add some metal in there other than Rammstein? You should also be allowed to choose which wishlist song you get when you open the case. Just food for thought. Other than that, love the game. But please listen to your fans. When looking up tips you wouldn’t believe the amount of people saying that this game has some major flaws especially with scoring “perfect”..Version:

Be prepared to spend money…Great game, great design/interface and great concept but greed by developers has once again ruined a great game, if you don’t spend money you’ll find yourself playing the same songs over and over again for a chance to unlock at least 1 new song! Or you can buy songs for round about 200 gems each and 300 gems cost £5 which I find a scandal! Micro transactions are ruining the mobile gaming experience for everyone, would be much better if they included a vip pass or such sort instead all of these stupid micro transactions. You’ll find yourself waiting upto 2 hours to unlock a box which gives you cards and you to need to collect so many cards to unlock a song, you only have 3 slots if those slots are full with boxes you can’t play another game until a box unlock has been complete so you either wait 2 hours or pay to instant unlock them. I really wish companies would stop being greedy and actually have some respect for the gaming community! Like I said great game until you become stuck into being forced to buy gems to play..Version:

Great potential but unplayableI’ve been playing this game for a few months now, and while it has potential to be a great game I have a few issues with it. My biggest issue is the lack of bug fixes. The game is jam packed with lag issues, timing issues, and input issues, which makes pushing for score improvements a nightmare given the brutal accuracy judgement system. The devs have been pumping out new songs, some of which are free which is nice, but struggle to maintain the functionality of the game for the entirety of its player base. The leaderboard system is a great way to test you skill and see how to match up against other players… except this leaderboard favors purchasing songs to improve rankings as it’s based on cumulative score. This would be fine for someone properly motivated and had the means to purchase the songs, however there are also multiple songs that have been vaulted and not rereleased. So if your intentions are to get on that leaderboard you’ll be at least another 4 months and couple hundred dollars away from even having enough songs to do so. I’ve been avoiding spending money to unlock these songs as I’m not even able to finish most songs due to random input errors. But because I have still spent some money on it I can’t bring myself to delete it. The player base is at the mercy of the devs at this point, and it’s up to them to make their game functional for all of their players..Version:

Even Worse than it Used to BeI was playing this game a few months after its release back at the end of 2020 / start of 2021 and at the time I left review stating that it was a great game, executed well, but tarnished by the developer’s need to extract as much money from its players as it could. The dev team replied to my review saying they would consider the feedback. That was in April of 2021. It’s now a year later and it’s so much worse! We used to at least be able to play as much as we wanted, just had to pay to unlock songs (which itself is too expensive imho). Now we can’t even play the songs we’ve unlocked without spending more money to unlock unlimited play. Having to pay to use a song you’ve already payed for is absolutely absurd. Disgusting behaviour from the dev team, just trying to extort as much money as possible from us players. I’ll be deleting this game until this idiocy is undone..Version:

Love-Hate RelationshipI absolutely love this game and despise it at the same time. It's really good, probably one of the best games i'm able to play with my friends. But there's a few issues that get in the way and are very frustrating. 1- There's a bug that hasn't been fixed for a very long time yet every week they have an update for bug fixes, and the one very annoying bug they haven't fixed is sometimes you tap, and it registers late and you get a great or in rare cases a "late tap", or it doesn't register at all and you have to either spend gems to continue the song or restart the song. that gets very frustrating when you're doing very good in a song, any song, easy, hard, or extreme. 2- the amount of time it takes to unlock a song is boring and takes forever. i have about 50 songs and almost 40 of them are Diamond. you can't get a better medal than diamond, so I'm running out of songs to play to try and unlock a box and then eventually a song. they need to come out with a rare case where you can unlock a whole genre case, but it takes 24 hours to unlock, I'd rather do that than wait 100 hours to finally unlock a song that took me 20 different cases to unlock. Don't get me wrong tho, this game is pretty freaking great and deserves 5 stars, but the bugs and the amount of time it takes to unlock new songs just makes you want to stop playing after getting to a certain point..Version:

This new update isn’t the greatest…I’m usually a non stop player when it comes to this game, but this recent update has completely changed the gaming experience. The greatness of this game came from the satisfaction of being able to play whatever song you had unlocked as many times as you desired in order to better your own personal score. However, with this new ‘box slot is full’ mechanism, a huge restriction has been created that stops the player from playing this game all together. Having to wait for a slot to free up or having to pay gems is ultimately pointless as there realistically isnt any more u can do in app (especially with the events being put on hold for some reason.) Besides the actual songs and tapping of them, there is not much else to do in this game, therefore having to wait to free up slots, means the app becomes unusable. Not being able to go ahead and play the songs as many times as desired has sucked the fun out of the game completely. Prior to this update, apart from a couple of glitches ( i.e. not registering of tapping even though you had 100% tapped ) the game was incredibly enjoyable. I find myself opening the app less and less every week. It’s not as satisfying to complete anymore..Version:

Implicit PaywallLet me quickly say that I absolutely love the quality and feel of the game. It really does feel rewarding to play and beat those popular and good-time songs lots of people enjoy, and even the ones only you, yourself, enjoy. I feel like this game has become one of the best rhythm games on the app store by far, especially one so well advertised in many different places. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if others have begun to love rhythm games after just playing this one, especially when it could be very popular with children, teens, and adults alike. However, what I less enjoy about this game is that one has to continue watching ads between each play-through of any song. Those who have wallets may think that this is easily avoidable through paying for the $4.99 (implicit) paywall. However, those five dollars only last you a week of gameplay without ads, and this is assuming you can play consistently with the free time you are allotted—either after school or work. Hopefully, this can be changed, and I will continue owning the app, but for those who don’t wish to watch an ad after so little gameplay has been made, then I would look the other way. If you’re willing to make that sacrifice, then be my guest! I absolutely recommend this game to anyone who has the wallet (or patience) for it!.Version:

The new update..I hate the new update, the fact we can’t play any songs until all the cases we have are opened is stupid. I’ve shared this game with a few friends who have gotten into the game and they all agree the new update is stupid. Half the time I don’t even have enough gems to open a case. At least add a feature to play songs as the cases are full. Because there is no way I’m wasting my money opening a case just for a 20% chance I’ll even get cards to open the music box I want. I downloaded the game to play music, not to pay for songs I don’t even like..Version:

Used to be a great game, but it’s pretty much ruined nowThe update means that you can only play if a case slot is open. 3 song plays and that’s full. You either need to pay way too much money to open a case, or wait at least 3 hours. I loved this game and have over 50 songs but I’m going to put it down now until the developer gets way less greedy..Version:

Case Slots FullI like almost everything about this game except how you can only play a song while you have a case slot available, because that doesn’t come very often. It really limits my enjoyment of the game since I only get to play a couple of songs every few hours after one of my cases has opened. It would be much more enjoyable if there was a mode that you could play that doesn’t affect cases, as I just want to practice some of the harder songs without having to wait at least 3-5 hours for another go, by which time I can’t remember the patterns and my case slots are once again filled from failing the level a couple times. So my suggestion would be a ‘practice’ game mode that doesn’t affect cases or stars, it would be helpful to learn songs and make the game more enjoyable for me. Or make it possible to open two cases at a time by watching an ad or something. Just make it easier to be able to actually play..Version:

Great gameplay for a few minutesLet me start by saying the gameplay is challenging and engaging, especially on hard and extreme difficulty with a great song selection giving a variety of genres and hit songs. Unfortunately that’s where the fun stops. If I fail a song enough times (whether it’s genuinely challenging or I’m trying to get a high score) it fills up the chest meter which I’m all for BUT when you fill up on the 3 chests you can receive you can no longer play the game without shelling out $5 for a week for unlimited play. Supercell has done a great job making my money feel worth what I’m getting but for beatstar it feels like I’m being taken advantage of. Since I like your game so I have to give 5 bucks a week in order to play as consistently as I would like? Really fun game but please treat those of us who want to play your game like you want us to continue playing. I opened the game for the first time in a few weeks because every time I open the app I have 2 chests already and After a few tries/songs that’s it. Then it’s back to forgetting about it since I barely got to play in the first place. Unlimited play should be free considering it’s tough enough unlocking new songs without all the restrictions. Or at the very least give unlimited play for songs you have 5 stars for already so we won’t be able to unlock new songs from playing and we can still try to perfect said songs. Please fix this because I actually like this app and it has potential to be 5 stars.Version:

Fun, BUTI really love this game. It’s my go to when I’m bored BUT, it continually will say I missed a key when I did tap the screen, it’s so frustrating because you have to use gems which you can only buy or get 5 free a day to keep playing the song. 3 gems for the first “fail.” 5 for the second “fail” and 8 for any fail after that. I’m convinced the game does this on purpose to try and get you to buy gems. It almost feels like the more times you use gems, the more times it does this. It’s starting to make me just flat out not want to play the game..Version:

Very well designed game with a great UI.The game is fun to play, and despite the simplicity of the controls it’s very engaging. The songs are well-synced to the tiles; there’s even a feature that lets you choose the delay for Bluetooth headphones. As for difficulty, it starts out being a little easy. But once you get to more difficult songs you’ll see how the controls get interesting. I loved it, that is until I noticed how money-grubbing this is. Ads are a necessary part of the App Store, I understand that. But at some point you have to watch an ad between every song. The game is so good, I am willing to pay to not have to do that. And you can! $4.99 and you can play freely without ads… for a week. There are beautifully designed, full-length games on the App Store for that price and you get a whole experience. This app expects that every week just for a Tap Tap clone (albeit a great one). Like I said, I’d be willing to pay that ONCE, maybe even monthly. But that is just disgusting. I had to delete it for that. If you’re okay with full-length ads between each session, or are willing to cough up $4.99 once a week, this is a great game. But your wallet won’t love you. As for a suggestion, either make the game a one-time purchase and keep the in-game currency. That would allow for micro-transactions and continued revenue without preying on players. Either that, or make the $4.99 a monthly charge. If that’s the choice, perhaps $.99 to $2.99 would be understandable..Version:

Crazy expensiveNegative: The premium pass is so expensive, really does not come close to being worth it. Also, the season songs, if you don’t buy the pass to get all the songs, you get the worst of them. You aren’t able to choose a song that you prefer in the free version, and there is no option to buy one either… so…it’s a no go for me. Positive: The concept of the game really is better than other song games. Enjoyable and a great way to pass the time. Also, lets give them a round of applause for being real and promoting the game as what it is. Unlike… fishdom and a few other games out there..Version:

One HUGE FlawThe game is immense fun, stellar songs, beautiful graphics and design, easy to traverse with perfect touch accuracy as far as I can tell. My only complaint, though it’s a massive complaint that has me considering uninstalling, would be that I can’t play while my 3 spaces to unlock boxes are full. Effectively kicking me out of the game for 3-5 hours minimum, typically longer because ADHD, only for me to be able to play maybe 3 songs before the cycle repeats. It’s *extremely* aggravating that the second I start to get in the rhythm of the game, I suddenly can’t play anymore. I understand that unlimited play is sold for in game currency but the in game currency is extremely difficult to earn and I’d rather spend it trying to unlock said boxes. And sure I could buy currency for real money, which I don’t have issue with, but I rather buy currency to get more songs or once again open boxes. Furthermore, the bonus 30 minutes unlimited play for buying songs isn’t worth it. I end up stressed about the time, while also losing focus on the song, ultimately not enjoying it. Change your focus. Offer free unlimited play losing out on earning cards/boxes and progress for the season pass event entirely. Whereas for coins you can keep your earnings while you play, as well as buy songs or unlock boxes as it is now. Maybe even offer a refresh on the daily bonus songs for a price. Otherwise I doubt you’ll truly see the success you want..Version:

4 star to 3 starI enjoyed playing the app. But stopped playing it as i had other things to do. I had a song that my son liked to do. But unlike other games that if you delete and then reload. you pick up where you left off. Your game puts you right back to the start. Not cool. I will not go back to square 1 and hope i am lucky getting the song again. So this will be my one and only review. I had issues trying to do supercell. So i don’t have that profile. But i did have my name set up but you can’t load up that. No options. Good bye and good luck in the future.Version:

Its really fun but…So, I don’t usually write reviews for games. It’s not something I tend to do, but this game has gave me a massive ICK so to speak. The game itself is amazing, and as far as most games goes is really clean. It’s smooth and addictive, appealing to the eye as well. HOWEVER, just as some other reviews I have read have said as well, the wait time on opening the boxes that aren’t even guaranteed to give you a new song are ridiculous. It would be different if you could maybe unlock all 3 at the same time, or still play while all the boxes were full- but you can’t. This is a real shame because it’s a really fun game, that you’re forced to stop playing after a few songs. And waiting 5 hours for a few cards? C’mon, that’s just unfair 😕. You should make the wait times more reasonable. Half an hour at MOST. Or at least make the price of speeding it up more like what the player has. You give us 5 gems a day, they could maybe cost 1-3 to speed up, not bloody 50. Just a suggestion for the greedy people out there 😉..Version:

Very glitchy after the update.This game is highly addictive, I like the song choices and the way the game is set out in general, however, there are two major floors that have actually put me off playing recently. And it’s for this reason I am now writing this. I tried to play again today. But following the recent update, the game is incredibly glitchy. EVERY SINGLE SONG tells me I have failed to tap. When I most certainly am tapping. I no longer want to play for this reason. It gives me rage lol.. Especially when you make it most of the way through a song and haven't missed a single beat, and it’ll then not register a very clear tap, or will register it late causing you to lose your streak - incredibly frustrating and was absolutely fine before the update. Second issue is the length of time between the unlocking of cases. 3 to 5 hours, only to receive a few cards for a box you don’t even want. I now need upwards of 30 cards per box, and it can take weeks before I’ve earned enough cards to unlock the box. The game then becomes boring because you end up playing the same songs over and over with nothing to gain, made even worse by the first issue I mentioned. Once these issues are fixed I would happily review my star rating/review..Version:

Money hungry but funFirst off, I will say that the (limited) gameplay itself is good fun, songs are recent and getting 5 stars actually means something because of how difficult it is to achieve. HOWEVER, I have several big problems with this game. Firstly, you can’t play several levels without watching an ad between every single level, which seems a bit ridiculous as the ads go for well over 30 seconds and gameplay is less than 2-3 minutes. Moreover, there is also no timer that indicates when you can start playing levels again without watching an ad, like candy crush, so you really just have to keep coming back to the app and check. Lastly, it’s very lame that you can only save progress between devices if you sign up with their special ID, there’s no reason why signing in with Facebook shouldn’t save your progress. Overall, the game is fun for what it is, but the extreme money hungriness from the developers is very off putting and feels hostile..Version:

A 100% ACCURATE & HONEST REVIEWYou can play 3 turns for free. If you want to play 1 more song, you have to watch an ad that is almost longer than the song itself. If you watch too many ads, you get blocked from doing so and can’t continue playing. The options are to pay for a tour pass that lasts within the month that you bought it, or you can pay $6.99 WEEKLY to just be able to play without having to watch ads. You can also pay $13.99 for only 3 new songs, or you can pay for crystals to use on songs. I contacted the support team about these insane prices and long story short they told me that’s the way it is. Who can afford to comfortably play and enjoy the game by paying? Rich people? Kids that have their parents pay? People that don’t have bills or real obligations? We emailed back and forth for a long time - every time I was met with “could you tell me more about what the problem is?” And then a repeat of what we already discussed. Bots are more useful. Did they give me a discount, or free song, or show any kind of effort to satisfy me or make me feel better about playing their game? No. Why? Because it would be “unfair” for the other players (that would have no idea anyway). Rest assured, players - no one is getting anything from this company, your feelings and wallets won’t be hurt. This is by far the worst experience I’ve had with any customer service and product in my entire life, and I’ve been playing mobile games and video games for decades. Play at your own risk if you don’t have a bunch of money to spend on this game..Version:

Started to lagNew update with the deluxe songs has more frequent “lags” during the songs and some taps not registering at the right time. This wasn’t an issue before. On an iPhone 11 over here and it used to play great. Even tried flicking all my apps off and nothing changed. Wish I could revert to previous version until it’s fixed..Version:

Unlimited play should not be a payable option constantlyI love this game but hate the fact that unlimited play is restricted which I think is ridiculous. Fancy asking people to pay almost $8 just for a week on unlimited play. I can understand a one off payment needed for unlimited play but this game expects you to spend money constantly to keep playing. Honestly it just feels like a money grab. Every other game I have played will have a one off payment for unlimited pay but not this one. I can understand asking people to buy gems if the want to unlock songs/perks earlier but to constantly have to pay $8 for unlimited play? Also once you pay the huge amount needed for gems and unlimited play we should not be subjected to ads constantly. I love the game but I am sick of playing for 8 mins before I'm locked out for hours at a time. I can understand why many people delete the app and look for similar ones that only need a one off payment. Just greed from the developers..Version:

Quite disappointedI love Beatstar, I had played it religiously for ages, then the new update came out and honestly I barely even open the app. This game is honestly amazing and totally different to almost other music games but I just can’t stand the update. If you only have one slot open you can play like 3 songs, which I find infuriating, I used to play the game for hours at a time and now I spend at most 30 minutes. It’s such a shame cause this game really had so much going for it, there were barely any ads, only when you chose to revive yourself or tried to get some more gems (which I think is totally fair), most of the packs were pretty fair priced, and there are so many different songs compared to what most piano/music games have. Now you have to buy season passes which are like $20+ if you want to more than 3 songs at a time. It’s really annoying when I’m trying to improve my score on a song too, cause if I’m scoring decently high I can only go over it very few times. I’m just rambling rn but I just wanted to get it out there, I think this game could really go places but this update has really screwed it over..Version:

Fun game until they cut off how many times you playI really enjoyed this game! But the new update means you can keep playing more songs if your song cases are full. I like the game cause you could fill up your song cases and just keep playing any song you wanted whenever you wanted. Now that you have to wait for the songs cases it makes me less likely to play..Version:

Great game hate the monetisationI would probably spend way way longer on this game if I was either, rich or could put up with constant interruptions to my gameplay. What makes music based games like this or just dance so fun I’d that I feel like I’m participating I’m my favourite songs the difference between this game and just dances monetisation is that when you pay for the subscription you dont get ads ever, also compared to that game the subscription just is too pricy for a student like myself, I would be happy to pay $20 to “buy” a game like this but not much more than that.Version:

Wanted to love it.The game itself is super fun and there’s a lot of great music. My issue is as with most games too many paywalls. I was content to play the free version and watch ads but you have to watch ridiculously long ads and then suddenly you can’t play songs on gore and the game tries to sell you premium. However it never tells you when you run out of plays. At least not that I can find. I’ll be playing then suddenly I have no more plays with no visual representation of why. No way to get any free diamonds or whatever they’re called, they are purchase only so you end up with unlocked chests you can’t open. Would rather have had a pay once (ten bucks or so?) for the game then no restrictions. I think the plays is controlled by your box slots at the bottom. Once you’re full it won’t let you continue playing unless you pay money. Typical predatory tactics. I know the game is there to make money but for those that don’t want to spend you can only play for a few minutes then you have to wait a lock time until you can open one of the boxes to free a spot to keep playing and the game never explains this to you. You can watch an adult but these ads are 30 seconds and up. Some are several minutes and you’ll have to watch it every time you want to play. No thanks. The funny part is this exact thing has been mentioned ina ton of reviews and the developers always reply acting as if they care. Yet it’s not changed. So yeah. Moving on..Version:

A lot of flaws ruin the gameThis game has some fun gameplay. Beatstar, gameplay wise, is probably my favorite rhythm game generally, it has a lot of fun times. The monetization is egregious but I kind of expect that out of most mobile games at this point unfortunately, so the bar isn't that high. That said, being hard barred from playing the game because you have to wait 3-5 hours before getting to play again. Now here's where the biggest flaw comes in: the ADS! This is a free-to-play game, so obviously making money somehow is fine. but if you have all 3 boxes waiting to be unlocked, you can pay approximately 35 gems to unlock one chest, or watch a 30-second ad to play a song over ONCE. Mind you, you only get 10 free gems a day; 5 gems for free, and then 5 more if you watch a 30 second, unskippable ad. And that was already annoying, having to watch that many ads just to play the game. But recently, they added more ads, so almost every time you finish a map - REGARDLESS of if you failed or completed it - you get an ad right after. So on top of watching multiple ads a day in this game, if you're hooked on it, now you have to deal with even more interruptions, tenfold. They also have a season pass that costs $9.99 and rotates every couple weeks, but that won't keep them from throwing even more ads at you. Horrible monetization, genuinely makes the game unplayable. The gameplay is not worth the time you watch ads instead..Version:

Chests take too long to openI recently installed this game and is actually pretty good I didn’t think that I would like it but instantly I was obsessed. After I played 6 songs then I had to wait between 3-5 hours just to play again purely because the chest has to open the only thing bad about the game is the cap on how long you can play you should be able to play for as long as you want without having to wait although you can watch ads to play again but eventually after like 6 ads they run out and you have to wait another couple of hours I think that this should be fixed as soon as possible because it will lose the company a huge amount of players cause they have to wait then they give up as my mate did and so did my brother because they got sick of waiting.Version:

PotentialI’ve been playing this game for about a month solid and have really enjoyed it, however there’s a lot of room for improvement. I find that frequently there are bugs and issues with the app weekly and it’s frustrating since if you miss a note, boxes are full and don’t have gems you find it hard to beat a high score and then have to wait for a long period of time to play again if boxes are full. Sometimes you can press it and it will not pick it up or there’s a slight delay. Sometimes the app works perfectly then other times not. It’s also disappointing that it’s harder to level up and unlock songs after a certain point you could be replaying the same songs over and over again to refill boxes in attempt to earn new songs, after a while you get fed up and bored. Also think that it’s very over priced for some of the unlimited play for a week and boxes and even gems themselves. It’s got a lot of potential and it’s probably one of the best types of these games I’ve came across so far. It’s enjoyable for a while but as I said there’s a lot of room for improvement! But could easily lose interest in it if more songs aren’t added and are easier to access quicker..Version:

Great alternative to piano tiles but a few flawsThis game is fun and a great alternative to piano tiles but as a frequent player of this game I have noticed some issues with the game that degrades the game a lot. One of the problems with this game is the boxes and how once you fill them you can't play anymore unless you pay gems ( which take forever to get without paying ) or watch an ad, which is bad enough already but eventually, the game won't let you even do that and force you to have to use gems if you want to continue playing. Another issue is that things that cost gems cost a lot of them. For example when you want to open a box with gems for ones that have 3 hours you have to pay 40 gems! Now you try tell me that's not absurd! I get that you do get 5 free gems a day but maybe think about moving that number up a bit to maybe 10 or 15 gems and or lowering the price to open boxes or get songs to solve this issue. Though as I said before, this game is a great alternative to piano tiles and I prefer it a lot more in terms of asthetics and style and also the face all the ads are volentery. This is still a great game, despite its flaws but please take my comments into consideration when trying to improve the game!🙃🙃❤️❤️.Version:

Extremely Limited Song OptionsThis game has a good idea and good mechanics, but it needs a ton more song options. I really don’t care at all about the newest song by whoever is popular this week, I’m a fan of older music. That being said, there are only two songs that I’d consider “Older” music in the game (Living on a prayer and sweet home Alabama). And while I don’t mind some recent songs, if you want any chance to reach a level where you can play one of the two songs I’d like better, you have to earn stars by playing a wide variety of music that I’d rather not listen too. I ended up playing some songs without sound because I didn’t want to listen to them, but I wanted the stars so I could potentially get to a song I liked better. You should have a wide selection of music to play right from the beginning, in different categories including different decades rather than just different genres, that way you can play music that suits your tastes more to unlock different songs in that specific category. I want to like this game, but when the main theme is music, it shouldn’t have such limited music to cause a player to not even want to listen to it. Hopefully the music gets “updated” (ironic since I’m asking for older music), and then I’d love to play it again, but for now I just won’t and I can’t in good conscious give 2 stars to a music app without music..Version:

Used to Love this gameThis was my favourite ‘piano keys’ type game and I used to play it all the time. I didn’t mind the fact that you only had three slots and had to wait a certain amount of time for them to open cause I understand that the developers needs to make money some way. But recently I feel ripped off by this game. The ad said it cost $13.99 to have a season’s pass, thought that wasn’t too bad and purchased, instantly get a charge on my card for $29.00, which didn’t seem right but with no way to dispute it, I figured maybe it’s because of exchange rate and taxes, I live in Canada, still seems a too high and not really worth it to me anymore but try to enjoy my season pass anyway. Except halfway through the pass, I’m told I have no more new songs to play, so all the boxes with cards which are most of the prizes now can’t be opened, and yet you can still buy songs. In fact every time I open the app I’m prompted to buy more songs. Yet you have none left for my chest cards to go towards. It’s really frustrating. I don’t think you should be allowed to sell a perk knowing there’s a good chance that perk eventually won’t work for the buyer. I’m disappointed and won’t be putting anymore money into this game..Version:

Fix your gameGod i can’t stand this game sometimes, i know for a fact this game is not optimized for iphone 12’s it’s clearly obvious, my girlfriend has an iphone 11 and it works fine but with mine it constantly lags, doesn’t register when im tapping notes and if i do somehow get a registered tap it says i lost my streak, please optimize your game.Version:

So addictive yet so cash grabbingHello anyone who stumbles upon this review or Beatstar, I have sincere regards towards your game. I looked at the top games this week and saw this. As a music fan seeing this as the top game I decided to download it. At first it was so simple yet so fun and addicting I loved every single song you picked, the game was easy to control and I was overall having a great experience with the game. The fact is the this is a total cash grab. The amount of ads is ridiculous, it drives me insane. Also aside from the ads the amount of time you have to wait in order to get a new box is really long which persuades people to use diamonds to skip waiting for long amounts of times and the amount of times I ran out of diamonds was so many making you take our money in order to just get a little music box, there are so many features in this game that make you almost have to pay in order to have a fun experience or succeed in this game. It’s almost a pay to win game. It’s so fun that I did pay a few times but then I started to realize how many things you did have to pay for and then I stopped playing. If your rich and don’t mind paying hundreds of dollars every year go ahead and download this game. Even though it’s pretty fun and addicting game it is a complete pay to win game. I highly recommend not playing this game. Waste of time waste of money..Version:

Keep an eye on Improvements!I really would love to give this game 5 stars. The sleek design and music collection has been fantastic so far, and the added difficulty of the swiping mechanics have added a real fun challenge! This has been the first game in a while that I find myself wanting to jump back into, but sadly there is a gaping flaw in the game which is becoming a growing frustration. The fact that it totally stops you from being able to play when all your ‘new song’ box slots are filled. I’m really hoping it’s not a design choice and they’re actively working on either revamping that feature or giving you a way to still play even when these slots are filled, because it almost feels like I’m being actively discouraged from playing the game when it completely bars me off from practicing just because I’m waiting for a new song. It would be fantastic to have a practice mode to use in between boxes opening, or perhaps have you earn less tokens or even no tokens at all until you have another slot available. Another option could maybe be to give players a way to earn more gems during songs, like rewarding them for large streaks and such, as I’ve seen other reviewers suggest. This has the potential to be a really really great game, and I’m sure the developers don’t want to push away their audience, so I’m looking forward to any updates they have in store, and the improvements that they may make in the future. It’s definitely worth keeping an eye on this gem..Version:

Would love this feature!Would it be possible to have unlimited play on songs that you get the ‘Diamond’ rank in? And make it so that when you play those songs you don’t get any rewards/ levels/ tokens/ coins from them so it doesn’t speed up your progress in the game too much. I would just love to replay the songs that I enjoyed playing over and over again in my free time without having to wait for the cases to open or worrying about filling up the cases with coins I earned from replaying songs I already played. It might also encourage people to keep playing songs to get the ‘Diamond’ rank so that they can replay them. Amazing game otherwise! Thank you so much for all the fun I’m having on this!.Version:

Sort of fun…It’s cool sometimes, as far as tap the song apps go the actual gameplay of this is most fun, however it’s game over if you miss one tap or swipe which is just… not very fun? Way more fun if it was just a big hit to your score but you could still finish the song. I get that it’s a good way to have us spend gems to continue but it’s so jarring and frustrating that it’s not that tempting to buy gems, way more likely to buy them for more lives. On that note - the premium options aren’t that tempting. They’re reasonably pricey for just a week or so of premium gameplay. I would expect a month or a year or a one off purchase (for a much higher price) but a week or so is… not enough. Strange. Also, the “tap to skip countdown” when it’s trying to get you to spend gems to continue following a mistake doesn’t work, so you just have to sit there furiously tapping waiting for the 5 seconds or so to countdown (when you’re frustrated for making an error) and can’t just go back..Version:

Fun butttttThis game is really enjoyable. I haven’t played a good game like this for a while. I kinda hate how long the wait times are to open music boxes tho, the only way to do it is to buy diamonds or just keep watching adds which gives me a headache after a while. Overall, very fun game like guitar hero and up-beat but would like a shorter waiting time for boxes or at least more ways to get free songs.Version:

Every update makes the game worseI downloaded Beatstar in the first half of 2021 and it was a joy to play. Interesting song choices, decent playing calibration, and the opportunity to go up against other players in venues/events. The update in mid-2021 eliminated venues, which I thought was a very poor choice. Created much less incentive to play since there were fewer opportunities to level up. My theory was that it was removed to make obtaining cards/songs more difficult, and thought that was shady. But I wasn’t that surprised. After this update I lost most of my enthusiasm for playing. It wasn’t until some friends recently downloaded the game that I decided to pick it up again. I had to update the app — only to see that the game has capped how much you can play, unless you pay (or play lengthy ads before EVERY song, and even THEN it’s capped)! I am STUNNED by this update. Not only is it greedy, it removes any chance of practicing songs in order to improve your score. Whose decision was this? EVERY update I’ve seen on this game made it WORSE, not better. And it’s such a shame because it was genuinely one of the best rhythm games available. To the developers - please do not embarrass yourself with a response to this review with the canned “these updates will positively impact it in the long run” line because 1) there is no explanation as to HOW this will be positive. I, as a user, cannot see it. If you’re referring to Space Ape Ltd’s bottom line then um… sure. Great for you. What about us? And 2) if these updates aren’t reversed, you won’t have anyone playing it to confirm whether that fantasy of yours ever came true..Version:

AdsThought this game was gonna be good when I started it but later I realized I would have to watch ads to play levels.Version:

Good but not great.I’d like to start off by saying this game is amazing. They made the game look absolutely incredible. It runs extremely smooth and is packed to the brim full of great songs. Now you’re probably wondering why I gave this great game only 3 stars? Now that the liked things are out of the way, I want to talk about the things I disliked. First off, I haven’t noticed anyways to gain gems, other than getting the daily free 5 or watching an ad to gain another 5. At first site this game seems like you’d barely see any ads, right? Wrong. After you play this game for just a couple hours, you will gain 3 music chests and ultimately fill up your chests slots. PowerCell did a great job of hiding ads within this beautiful game. Now once your 3 chests slot are filled up, you can no longer play any songs for the duration of the chests opening. HOWEVER, you CAN still play any song you have unlocked IF you watch an ad. Now you do have to do this for every song you want to play, unless you pay the cheap and REASONABLE price of $5!! Yes, you heard me correctly, if you pay only $5, you can play this game freely. Now for many, this may be a price they’re willing to pay for a decent game like BeatStar, but personally I wouldn’t like to pay $5 to get rid of these annoying ads. Overall this game gets 3 stars out of 5 because it is an amazing game, but like all the others, it has its faults..Version:

Increasingly pay-to-playThis game started out great. However, as per the title, this game is becoming far more focused on pay-to-play. I use this because there's no "pay to win" since the game doesn't have a focused sense of winning. Events are constantly locked if you don't own the song, which if you aren't willing to watch ads or spend money, you won't unlock. Even then, it's a chance you'll get whatever song is in the event. You can buy the song, but unless you save up the tiny amount of in-game currency you can get, you have to spend money to buy the gems to buy the song. Soloution? Make the songs available for ALL players for the event. Which is two plays of the song. Stop hosting events that your players can't even access. This turns off new players from your content, and irritates everyone else. The other issue is the tour pass. I have watched it go from level 7 to unlock a song, to 13, to 30, to now you have to pay in order to get a song from the tour pass. For those not paying, the tour pass mini events are really not worth focusing on. On top of that, you're locked into how many songs you can play per day for "free". Technically it is free regardless, but after you fill your boxes and you can't collect more, you're locked out of playing without watching a mandatory ad. Which, might I add, the ads have been getting longer and I am not sitting through a one minute ad to play two minutes of a game. TL;DR - Lots of ads, locked events, low gameplay time, rising need to pay to play..Version:

So disappointedI used to play this game all of the time and now I can’t even practice the songs I have in my library? So sad when developers get greedy. I hope you listen to the people WHO MADE YOUR APP WHAT IT IS and give us back the game we once loved..Version:

Not a very enjoyable game.First of all, why is kpop not a genre option? Many people enjoy kpop music and it would be amazing to play to this music. Second, why can you only play up to a certain amount of songs? Wouldn’t you like your players to enjoy your game normally? After I saw that I immediately deleted the game. Why would I wait hours to play again? Overall, I wouldn’t recommend to use up your storage for this game..Version:

Won’t spend anymore money on this game…I was enjoying this game and even spent over $50 buying song bundles, until the latest update when they took away the ability for me to continue playing once my boxes were full. Lame! You won’t be getting anymore money from me!.Version:

It has potentialThis is a great game, great mechanics, the beats are in sync with the songs, it’s fun and enjoyable despite being a simplistic idea, it’s executes it in a way where there’s plenty to do. However, it is only like this the first few hours of having the game downloaded. You get to a point where the spaces at the bottom with chests you get from playing are full to the maximum of 3 chests and you can’t play. Unless you spend $5 for unlimited play, or watch an ad, you can not play consistently at all. I expected this game, as well as it was played off to be, jam packed with fun, exciting good quality game, and it was! That is until it attempted to milk me of money. Because it is such a well executed game, the developers think they can get away with milking their consumers of money because how much we like the game. I don’t understand why the developers would take a game like this, a game with such good potential, and decide to take advantage of the players by basically saying, “hey if you don’t pay us $5 a week you won’t be able to consistently play our game we obviously put a lot of effort and time on and would make plenty of money off anyway!” Nope, the fact it only lasts for a week is even worse, and it’s $5! My point is, this game has amazing potential, it’s honestly a great game, but taking advantage of your consumers with such a good game and not letting us play it consistently ruins the whole thing for us and makes it almost unplayable..Version:

My favourite Ad SimulatorI know they use ads for revenue but my god the increase in them over time is obscene. Time to delete this app as it’s now an Ad Simulator not a rhythm game..Version:

Can Only Play 4 Times Without Waiting for HoursI love this game. I really do. I want to play it all the time. But the way it is set up frustrates me. You start with a basic 10 or so songs. You can see other songs and add to a “wishlist”. But it doesn’t matter. You don’t get the wish list songs. Or really a say in what additional songs you get. You play one song four times maybe six and you’ve earned enough points to fill a box. The box takes 3-5 hours to unlock. When it unlocks you get a new song. But no guarantee it will be a wishlist song or any that you actually like. Ok, I can deal with that. The BIGGEST issue I have is that once you fill up a box and while you wait for it to unlock you can’t play the game. Sure you can buy gems to speed up the unlock. But if you want to play for free you have to wait for hours to play. So you get 5 minutes of play and then 5 hours of waiting. You do have an option to watch an ad so you can play another round. Great! 30 second ad and if you’re on a hard song, you may only play for 30 seconds and then bam. Back to either needing to watch another ad or wait hours. I’m so frustrated. The positives are that this game is really fun and challenging. But to spend hours waiting to play, just to get five minutes of play time or spend 50% of your time on ads just to play, is just ridiculous. So disappointed..Version:

Bad unlimited play optionsThis game would be loads of fun if it wasn’t for the fact that some players are offered a week of unlimited play in the shop while some only have access to one day unlimited play in the shop for no apparent reason. It makes it hard to keep playing when I am restricted in the amount of limited play I can buy while my friends can buy much longer periods. The support is also very slow to respond..Version:

Really fun at firstThe gameplay is nothing less than addicting and a great way to kill time. I found myself picking up my phone every 15 minutes to continue playing this game. The modern-era of music in this game makes the experience more relatable and exciting. However, as you progress you’re forced to use gems to free up slots, otherwise you can’t play the game and have to wait up to five hours. This was really disappointing to find, as the game gets you addicted early on and forces you to use in-app purchases to continue playing at the same rate. I find I can only play around three-four songs every three hours. A ‘practice mode’ in which you don’t earn any points would resolve this issue. Apart from this, the experience is smooth and polished and definitely worth checking out..Version:

So much fun but please fix the game and actually listen to your communityI’m not gonna repeat the same thing that everyone says about the loot box system because there’s frankly no point it’s been said enough for the developers to be aware of it but clearly they don’t care enough to change it as it’s been months, nearly years, with no change whatsoever. But if you’re gonna be greedy and make us watch ads constantly just to play a song once then at least make the level actually playable and register the fact I am tapping the screen. This bug mainly happens on stand up tall by dizzee rascal I will tap a note and the game will fail me saying I haven’t tapped the screen at all when I most certainly did. Then I have to go back watch another ad just for the same thing to happen again and ruin what wouldve been a good run. This game has so much potential but it’s gonna die out completely if the developers continue being lazy and not listening to what the community actually want..Version:

So many adsThis app was great for the first 5-6 levels. Then the ads start appearing and you can’t play without watching them… I understand ads are a necessary evil in free games but this is really bad.. I think the worst part is that they are those ads that say they are like 30secs long but then you gotta wait about her 15 for the close option to appear. I think the developers need to tone the ads down a little or they will lose a lot of players.. Im sure they won’t listen but hey if you don’t like games with lots of ads, leave now lol, this is not for…. Had resigned myself to the fact that I had to watch ads, before every song, to play (which is absolutely ridiculous) but eventually it gets to a point where it says ads aren’t available.. so game is rendered useless… what were the devs thinking??? Why anyone is wasting money on this game is beyond my understanding, the devs are literally forcing their players to pay…. Rip off.Version:

InfuriatingIt seems like the majority of five star reviews haven’t played the game for too long and, like me, was happy to have such a game and decided to review the game early. It’s probably because this is one of the best tap to the beat games I’ve seen on the App Store in a long time. The graphics are great, there is a nice song selection for most genres and being able to make sure your taps are in sync for if you’re using Bluetooth headphones and such is great. There are some songs I’ve unlock which I’m not too keen on but I can’t really complain about that. The big biiiiig problem is once you’ve played past level 1 and opened your five second crates, your crates take 3 to 5 hours to open, which is generally a standard model for a lot of games. The problem here is though instead of a warning about progression like most games and being able to play without experience or such, the game just stops you playing altogether. You have to wait or pay to unlock a crate so you can play again. You then can have three more attempts at a song or two before back to waiting. Honestly one of the worst ideas I’ve seen in a game yet, no being able to attempt to beat your own score or just general playing for fun. You just can’t play. So, unfortunately instead of paying the ridiculous price (repeatedly as there isn’t a premium unlock either) so I can attempt to play three more songs, I’m just going to wait until another, better model comes out. Nice try, devs..Version:

Great game, bad companyI really love the game, while it may seem like a traditional piano tiles game it has enough little twists to make it feel unique and the graphics are truly great, many of the songs are good to but of course that is subjective. The only real problem with the gameplay is that it will occasionally switch from you having to tap to the beat to having you tap to lyrics which when it happens suddenly can be kind of hard and confusing to keep track of. The real problems with the game and the reason 2 stars are knocked off my review is that the prices are inflamed and stupid, I estimated it’s just over $1 per song which may while expensive you may give the benefit of the doubt but often the songs are cut down heavily so you only get about 2-3 mins worth of a song. Which in my eyes is a bit of a scam. Along with the very very low progression they push on you virtually forcing you to buy songs if you want to go faster then one song every other day. The games amazing and props to all the devs and workers behind it but it’s being ruined unsurprisingly by a money hungry company who really doesn’t seem to care about the average players experience..Version:

Great game, greedy devsThe game is very good, don’t get me wrong, but the fact you can’t just keep playing when you have cases is ridiculous. I don’t want to spend money just to play the game, and I get that’s what the devs are going for, but seriously? Money over quality? I would actually spend money on this game if they didn’t throw it in your face that you have to in order to keep playing..Version:

Weak Tap Tap Imitation with MicrotransactionsDownloaded this game to relive nostalgia of beat games on iPhone. Song selection extremely limited and locked behind paying money. But whats even WORST is that you can't retry songs or continue to play if you have no "box space", and only way of ridding the boxes are waiting or spending money. Stupid mechanic that I can't even keep playing the SAME song unless you watch ads (or spend money). DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS APP. Uninstalled it in less than 1 hour. Developer response will most likely be another copy and paste: thanks for the feedback. We know this is a big change and it was not an easy decision for the team to make. We believe making this difficult decision now will positively impact the game in the long run. We hope you'll try it for a while! ~ Beatstar Team.Version:

Its fineTwo gripes with this game, super grindy and the taps sometimes dont register I need to play a song perfectly 3 times to get a case that can only give me 3-5 cards randomly. Each box increases the amount of cards needed when you have more songs so I need to randomly get 30ish cards of the same variant But ofcourse the cases have a 3 or 5 hour wait time and you can only open one at a time. Even if you just want to play casually. if you have have three cases that arent opened, you cant play the game anymore. Oh and the minute long ads to get two cards Like jesus dude Ofcourse every step of the way they try to make you use money. Want to play endlessly? Pay up Want another chance? Pay up Want to buy 2 random songs? Thats $7 bucks Also ofcourse a battle pass ontop of all of that I like this game alot but I can’t ignore how it dipfeeds you badly in every step of the process. Feels super predatory Also sometimes this game doesnt even register my touch. Super annoying since its gameplay relies heavily on being perfect Its fun when it works but they wont let you have a second to enjoy it without shoving microtransactions down your neck.Version:

Limit playing timeAt least let us use practice mode or something… what’s the point of having us wait for boxes to finish opening?.Version:

Absolute hot garbageWhat they’ve done here should be illegal on the App Store. You can pay real money for songs and then be locked out of playing them if you don’t ALSO pay them $6.99/week to play the game. That’s right. You can pay them for songs. Buy songs you enjoy playing. And now, with the new update, you are no longer allowed to play those songs anytime you want if your ‘cases are full’. And to unlock the cases you need to pay MORE real money. Bull$#%# Monetizing opening cases is okay. Makes sense and is standard practice for games like this. What they’re doing here is predatory..Version:

MehThis game is alright I just wish all songs were free so you can play the songs you like instead you have to level up and the takes forever.Version:

Basically pay to playLove the game, It’s really enjoyable to play in my downtime however as other people have stated the problem with this game is after about 3 full songs you have to wait 3-5 hours to open a box so you can play again, unless you pay for a weeks worth of unlimited plays. The problem is this makes the game only accessible during certain hours of the day like I might go on my lunch break at work but I can’t play because I’m waiting for a box slot to open. And for a game with scores based on perfection of the songs, it’s hard to practice a song when I can only play it 3-5 times before I have to put the game down again. Seriously brings the quality of life down and is the only thing stopping this from a perfect 5. Still an enjoyable game I just got any more..Version:

When developers spoil their own gamesI want to love this game. I want to give it 5 stars. It’s fun. It’s easy to learn. It has good music and all genres and it’s addictive in a good way. But and this is a big fat BUT… you can’t actually play it. Why? Because after 3/4 goes all you boxes are full and you have to pay to open one so you can continue. And a box takes 2 to 5 hours to open by itself. 5 HOURS before you can play 3 songs again and then the boxes are full again and it’s pay or wait 5 more hours to play are you kidding ? So if you want to play you HAVE TO PAY! Come on folks we have just left a pandemic we are in a recession there is not much spare cash and certainly not enough to pay £8 for 300 crystals to open 10 boxes so you can really get into this game. Yeah there’s some freebies but come on I mean 5 free crystals a day is pretty mean considering it takes 40/50 to open a box so you can do what the game is designed for and play it. I know these games have to make money but if you make things cheaper more people will actually keep the game and buy stuff and you will make more money ! Shocking fact I know but true none the less. Pricing out your players is a bad business decision. Go for a fan base. Go for longevity. Don’t be greedy let people play without hammering the credit card. You’ll make more in the long run. Try it..Version:

Quite annoyingI downloaded this app as I have played games like this before, and this one was recommended to me so I decided to give it a go. I understand that this isn’t really supposed to be a game that you play for hours, but I am frustrated by the fact that everything takes hours after the first few songs you play. The boxes quickly go from taking 5 minutes to unlock to taking 5 hours, and you cannot get any more rewards until boxes unlock. The game also seems “pay to win” almost and it really ruins the game for me. I understand that games need to make money somehow, and that the prices it asks for aren’t particularly high, but it seems ridiculous to charge over £4 for 300 gems. They are almost impossible to obtain otherwise, and I’m not willing to spend actual money on a mobile game. I also do not like how most things require gems. Again, I know the game needs money somehow, but I would much rather prefer this to be in the form of say, more ads, as opposed to gems needed for everything. Say for instance, you miss a beat. You could have the option to either spend gems or watch an ad. But I suppose that’s just my thoughts and if people want to spend their money on it then they can, but I almost certainly won’t. This app has great potential, but unfortunately a lot of features make it unbearable and annoying to play..Version:

Money!!!Why do we have to wait 3 songs now smh use to be fun now it just all about money nowadays sad.Version:

I’m not payingGreat app! I love killing time w this, but it’s kinda hard to do so once you get to that “pay to play” point. It’s free TO DOWNLOAD, but most of this games features come with them begging you to pay for them, even though they’re pretty useless features that nobody rly wants anyways. I guess they noticed this bc they charge u in game currency or multiple ads just to play singular songs. Idk if it’s always been this way but I don’t see myself using this app in the future. All this app did was motivate me to download the much easier to use for free game, piano tiles. Hope the developers fix this in the future, or at least make the game more bearable. I can see kids using this and not minding the ads, but I don’t see how anyone else would prefer a game they can’t even play songs they enjoy on over the many many piano tiles games/ other rhythm based games. I’ve had this game for one day and I’m already getting pestered with many many in app purchases available. Some of the ads are over a minute long if you choose not to pay them. Yeah, no thanks! I stopped using games like this years ago and this app is certainly not worth going thru all the trouble. Edit: THEY CHARGE $4.99 WEEKLY. W E E K L Y. That’s got to be the biggest scam I’ve ever seen for a game. I’m disappointed in myself for even downloading this before looking into how sketchy it is. DONT WASTE UR MONEY YALL. BE CAREFUL W THE GAMES THAT YOU BUY..Version:

Limited play timeMassive fan of these style of games since the since of the original Tap Tap Revenge! Since tap tap has been gone I’ve been looking for a replacement, none of which satisfied. This app is the best since and has some huge potential. Disappointing that the producers of the game see limiting game play as a way of trying to make more money. Lots of games are doing it and I understand it but only being able to play about 3 songs until you have to wait for another chest to be open (1 at a time) is ridiculous and just frustrating. Maybe create a perk to be able to unlock more than 1 chest at a time without having to pay or speed up unlock time!.Version:

Perfect game ruined by long forced delay of play3 boxes unlocking and we cannot play anything. This is ruining the entire game. You can just let us play and not give any rewards, but that would still be trash. Either way i have to wait 3 hours to play 3 times and we’re done. Hahaha fk this game. Uninstall..Version:

Was good then turned into a money grabGame is super fun and enjoyable for the first little while a pleasant mobile rhythm game with no ads and as a professional rhythm gamer I can say confidently that I still have not gotten any songs I really wanted even on the wishlist when I get a wishlist box it always and I mean always gives me the song I didn’t want the most I even spent $20+ just trying to get songs that I wanted to play instead of songs that I genuinely just didn’t have interest in I have to give this game credit where it is due I do find it awesome that there are songs that are well respected in the OSU! Community and that they are mapped pretty well tho I don’t want to pay money on the slim chance to even get the song and let’s say theoretically I got the song I wanted as I’m grinding to get it diamond I’ll end up having to scroll through every twitter post they made since 1900’s to get 30 min free play time that is kinda sad. I do think that if your going to respect the culture of the rhythm game to go this far to make a good one you are ruining it with mobile transactions and not just letting us play, I would have kept playing this and bought the cool battle pass instead to support the game if I was able to play the songs I wanted instead of songs I don’t want to. Definitely a cool game but not innovative at all just another cash grab at the end of the day but I hope you take my money and use it to make this game better than making the game worse..Version:

Excellent game but too much adsExcellent game but too much ads after the update. Forcing you to buy to remove the annoying ads..Version:

Taps are not sensitive enough and do not always work.Hello, Beatstar Developers. I am someone who has enjoyed you game for a long time and it is an amazing game once you get into it even if you don't spend money. I've been improving my scores slowly and been having so much fun while doing it over the last year and I've reached the row 2% which I'm proud of. But recently I've had an issue with the reactivity of some beats in all of the song I've been playing ranging from, normal to deluxe extreme where they just wouldn't react to me tapping them. This has resulted in me having to use more gems than I've ever had to use in order to complete a song. Im not sure if this issue is caused by the graphics going up recently and my phone not being able to keep up (my phone is in iPhone X) or if you have created a glitch in recent updates. I would love if you would be able to fix this problem ASAP so that I and many others could start playing your game without having to spend upwards of 8 gems to play a song all the way through. Thank you for hearing me out. Kind regards, Miki Weber..Version:

Started strong but fell short.When I first got this game it was apparent that they encourage players to start buying tracks to play but they’ll support players for a bit that play for free. It started out fun but after I got 28 songs done, almost every time I try a new song it is not registering certain notes, almost as if it would work better if I paid for it. Plus getting a new track for free now would take a couple weeks of watching ads to get. I got my couple weeks of fun out of it and I’m done with it..Version:

BruhI loved this game until it said that i couldn’t play because of a paywall. this feature does nothing but showcase your greed, i assure you that NO ONE enjoys it but you. :/.Version:

Kinda annoyingI love this game. but i hate the fact that i have to watch an ad to play any song. even to redo a song. even if i fail at a song within like 10 seconds. i understand that i can pay gems to play whatever i want for 30 minutes, but i know that’s just a way for the app developers to grab money from players since gems are very difficult to earn. because of that, i have to resort to watching an ad every. single. time. i wouldn’t care as much about this if the ads didn’t become unavailable after a little while. then i have no choice but to use gems, or just stop playing overall. developers, you should at least make it to where for each ad you watch you get anywhere from 10-15 mins of unlimited play. so that way, you guys can still have the premium option where players can still pay money to play, but let those of us who are broke and have no money still be able to enjoy the game without being forced to stop, or having to endure more ads than we play the game itself. UPDATE: now, there’s an ad i’m getting that is glitched and ends on a black screen with no way to exit out of it without swiping out of the app, which then counts as an ad watched but doesn’t count towards me playing a song. so i end up with only half the “extra” chances to play a song while full on the cases. I DONT CARE ABOUT THE CASES. i just want to play the songs..Version:

Pay WallOk I do have to say this game is really good, the quantity of well made songs with more coming out all the time just demonstrates how hard the team behind this game are working, although some levels such as “death bed” don’t quite link up making it hard to consistently get perfect+ using the music alone. The biggest issue I have is the paywall you hit after playing like 5 or 6 songs, there is no indicator demonstrating how many plays of songs you have left before you are reduced to buying unlimited plays (which in themselves are too over priced, a dollar a day is literally 4 times more expensive than normal subscription services). It would be helpful putting in, say, and energy indicator so you are able to see how many plays you have left and when you will be able to play again once you run out of said energy. All in all it’s a great game but it feels extremely pay to play when you take into account the little amount of plays you can get each day..Version:

GlitchingI LOVE this game but it keeps crashing and glitching and freezing while I’m mid play, I have a modern iphone and i don’t keep all my apps running in the background so this is really frustrating especially when it crashes in the middle of a game that I’m doing really well in and then when I restart my phone and try to play it again it tells me I’m out of plays. This has happened to me countless times and I’m sick of it..Version:

Good, but could be better. Add a casual modeYou guys sacrificed your player base for money and it shows. Having to buy unlimited plays is so stupid. It’s a great game, I love it and would play it much more often if I didn’t have to wait for hours just to play a song three times, then wait for three more hours. Having another way to earn stars would be good too because waiting around for boxes to be unlocked so you can earn cards to earn new songs really slows the gameplay and level progression, the game gets boring after a while. I haven’t noticed any glitches or bugs and I really like the gameplay within the songs themselves, however for people who are new to these kind of games, a good addition would be a casual mode available on every song that doesn’t give you any points or stars and it doesn’t matter if you miss any tiles. This should also be available when boxes are locked to get used to the song and the style of this game. It would make it easier to get used to the game and solve the issue of having nothing to do while waiting for boxes to unlock.Version:

Greedy grabJust when you get in a groove - ads, ads and more ads. So you pay for ad-free time but then run out of gems and have to pay for those..Version:

🤷🏼I use to play this game a few years ago and came back to it recently. For the first 6 months I was really enjoying it until the most recent updates. Now the game glitches makes it annoying and impossible to play at times. The events aren’t fun anymore and most of the time it’s songs you don’t have and when you do compete the rewards don’t feel worth it. Also a common glitch (tbh I feel like it’s more deliberate than anything else) that people are having is the left side doesn’t register half the time, you click it on beat and can hear your thumb hitting the screen but it doesn’t register. Usually it’s in harder songs but is pretty common all around, it feels like a way to get you to use gems/buy more. The cases feel like they fill up too quick and you only get 3 plays and either have to wait 3 or 5 hours to play again (unless you wait to empty all cases but that could mean up to a whole day of not playing as you can only open one case at a time), it would be nice when receiving awards if it felt more rewarding. Maybe higher awards for higher levels because with how long it takes to unlock new cases it feels impossible, when getting a new medal (gold, silver or platinum) you receive 3-5 gems (depending on how hard the song is), in events instead of tokens for a spin you could receive cards for a specific event case where you can unlock new songs. Overall I really do like this game and I would 100% recommend it but there needs to be some improvements.Version:

Great PotentialGreat concept and relatively fun gameplay, however the limited play system implemented through song case slots severely hinders any enjoyment the actual game brings. On top of that, you aren’t rewarded in any way for achieving gold, platinum or diamond scores despite their difficulty to achieve. Would rather pay a one-off-fee to unlock all features and songs. It’s a shame the developers have prioritised capita gain over player satisfaction. The latest game changes (i.e. increasing the time speed) has not improved the game at all. It has made it even more difficult to time beats accurately. The game could benefit from customisable difficulty settings such as adjustable tile speed and level difficulty for songs, seperate to the normal, hard, extreme levels already implemented..Version:

Great game, but…I’m going to echo a lot of the feedback that I can see has been given already by others. It’s a really slick, well made, fun game, which has potential and could be great, but has one BIG problem!….the case unlock mechanism is completely broken. You get 3 slots to unlock new songs, which fill up pretty quickly, and once full you get locked out and can’t play any more rounds until you empty a slot! You’re options for unlocking are either wait 3-5 hours, or pay for gems to instant unlock. The real big problem is though even once you free up a slot and can start playing again, it only takes 2 songs to fill that empty slot again! And you’re back in the same dilemma, either locked out of the game for 5 hours, or forced to pay to unlock cases quicker. So to get a decent run of gameplay requires quite a significant investment of cash into the game. I understand the need for developers to make money from their games, but it needs to be balanced, fair and engaging. The 5 hour wait after every 2 songs you get to play completely puts me off! If the system was more balanced I might consider spending a bit of money on the come, but not with how it currently works!!.Version:

What the hell happened?I absolutely was obsessed with this game, I was playing for several hours a day, I’m even in the top hundred players in my country! Since the update this game has took a turn for the worse, you can only play if you have card slots free and now that I’ve collected every song there is for me to collect I find out that you have to download other games to unlock songs now! Beatstar, why the hell are you being so greedy? i’ve spent so much money on this app and now i’m down to giving it a one star. I’m not playing on the daily anymore either, maybe weekly if the game gets my attention somehow. One of my most favourite games in a long time and now i’m not so sure, extremely disappointed..Version:

Can’t play if chest are fullI was really enjoying the game and all the songs until I got locked out of playing while my chests were full. This game is great and reminds me of the good old Tap Tap days but a huge issue with it is that you literally can’t play the game while all the chests are full which really ruins the fun of it. I suggest that you remove that feature and just let people not get the coins while their chests are full and then they can practice their songs and get better at them..Version:

Good but…This game is absolutely addicting, it’s one of the very few games I find myself looking forward to playing when I get home from school or something. However, I don’t know whether it’s my phone or the game but when I try play sometimes, the music completely cuts off and the tiles continue for a good second and then stop before making me wait a few seconds for the next few tiles and the song to come back on. I don’t know why but it completely throws me off, it was funny at first but now I’m just annoyed. It also lags a lot on the hard/extreme games such as Stand Up Tall and Du Hast. I love the game but I think it’d be better if there were more songs from bands such as 5 Seconds of Summer - good songs could be ‘More’ because it has a lot going on or ‘She Looks So Perfect’ because everyone knows and loves that song. It would be nice to see some My Chemical Romance, The Offspring, Every Avenue, All Time Low, Big Time Rush, Thirty Seconds to Mars - I love the diversity in genre of music though, I think that’s amazing!.Version:

SucksIts just bad.Version:
