Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Bringing a new virtual dance world to mobile devices, Clockwork Elements launches their first dance game app for iOS devices, Juke Fest (http://bit.ly/yfePol), this week through the Apple App Store during the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. After working as a Quality Assurance Tester for companies who developed games for Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 2, Clockwork Elements CEO Matt Liff designed Juke Fest with 8 entertaining characters, 8 electronic dance songs, exclusive Backstage content, vibrant colors that match dance/concert venues, and an ongoing “Duke of Juke” Dance Contest with a Worldwide Game Center Leader Board.
Similar to Whack-A-Mole, Juke Fest’s mobile app interface looks like a beat machine with 9 buttons in a 3x3 grid that creates many more unique patterns than other dance music games like Tap Tap Dance with 3 main buttons. Users create dance music by tapping the screen as buttons light up, causing the player character to dance to the rhythm. “We want to get the player feeling good enough to get up and start dancing,” explained Matt Liff, Creator of Juke Fest.
To personalize this videogame experience, players can choose between 8 characters representing different styles, dance moves and personalities. From Johnny Clubhead 5000 (Jersey Shore like-character with fist pumping dance moves) to Charleston Franks (parody of Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s Carlton Banks with 80s dance moves), and Dr Funkenstein (a cross between Michael Jackson and Frankentstein), users can select from 4 characters at first, and then unlock 4 more as they earn tickets.
Juke Fest is the only game dedicated exclusively to electronic and dance music in all different genres and styles such as Dubstep, House, Electro and more. Players can groove to 8 songs from Indie DJs from around the world, including Pixl (Electro House) in Sydney Australia, Fonik (Dubstep) from the UK, PrototypeRaptor (Progressive) from Oklahoma and dO (Funk) from South Korea. While all other music rhythm games either give users a partial sample of a song to play with the purchase of the app or require buying additional songs (or partial song) to download, Juke Fest includes 8 full playable songs with the game. Users can also listen to favorite songs from the Juke Fest app anytime like a MP3 player where you can Play, Pause, Fast-Forward and Rewind. Matt Liff explained, “One thing that we feel is a lost art in the game industry is incorporating music. We spent a lot of time carefully selecting the songs for the game.” To get a feel for the Juke Fest game music, users can check out this promo video reel on JukinVideo’s YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOgKu8CE2hI
As Justin Bieber and 50 Cent head to Las Vegas for CES (Consumer Electronics Show) this week, it’s clear that entertainment and music are playing an even bigger role in technology and mobile gaming. As dance game apps for mobile devices continue to evolve, Clockwork Elements will be sending out Juke Fest updates, including more songs and a multiplayer in the future.
