Groove Coaster and Jukebeat, does it hold up well? The short answer is yes, yes it does.
The concept of the game is rather similar to games such as Elite Beat Agents. You have a metal circle in which a note will pop up and expand within. You then have to tap this target with your finger or hold it down for awhile when it reaches the edge of the circle and the closer it is to the edge, the more points you earn. This will also build up a combo as you go along, which are boosted by +10 every time you hit a silver target. Your performance will then be ranked, based on a 5 star system and results can be submitted to online leaderboards through the Game Center.
For the set of songs, Bit192 Labs have included 20+ songs from a wide variety of artists, with genres ranging from Post Rock, Alternative, Dubstep & Progressive House. While the selection won't please everyone, any fans of these respective genres will likely enjoy what the title has to offer. Visually the game is also quite appealing, with some impressive 3D graphics and visual tricks, although the colour scheme used in some levels is a bit bland at times.
Overall, Tone Sphere is a worthy challenger amongst the iOS's rhythm games and a great effort from Bit192 Labs. With appealing visuals, a good selection of music and addictive gameplay, it's certainly worth the asking price
