    I saw this game mentioned in the Tap Tap thread but I thought it deserved it's own thread. There's certainly some room for improvement but it's a great game! I would recommend trying it to anyone that enjoys rhythm/guitar hero type games. I think it's single greatest feature is that it's compatible with all Frets on Fire tracks. Tip: register at Frets On Fire Fan Forum • Index page and browse to the Tune Posting subforum to find TONS of songs to download for use with the game. Including all the Guitar Hero and Rock Band songs.

    Please, post your experiences with the game. I've only tried part of one song so far. I'm at work, so it would look bad if I sat here and played Taps of Fire on my phone all afternoon :). I played a song on Easy and during the slow/moderate parts it worked well, but when it got faster with a lot of notes coming I seemed to be missing every note. I couldn't tell if I was just sucking or if the game was not registering my presses correctly. I'll have to play more extensively to be sure.

    Now if we could get some multi-touch in there we'd be in business.

    Great!
    Didn't know it was compatible with frets on fire songs.
    thanks.

    I agree daikonv. I think it's in the works and a new version might be out this weekend even, from reading comments by the developer on the google code page.

    Also, you can hit two notes at once now, by tapping in between the two notes that you want to hit. Multi-touch would be much better though.

    Right. You have to load songs specifically made for the game for them to work. You can't just load your mp3 collection and expect it to work. However, if you look in my original post I gave a link to a forum that has TONS of songs made for the game that you can download for free.

    shawheim: yes, I've found it to be pretty hard as well. I'm pretty damn good at guitar hero, but I struggle on medium and up songs on Taps of Fire. I think once he gets multi-touch working it will help a little.

    I uploaded a song i made onto there. Way to hard with no multi touch. And the timing of hiting the notes is kinda off, you have to hit the note early for it to work which makes it much harder. Im an avid Frets on Fire player/ Creator so i know how it all works, but once he gets the timing and multi-touch added should be an awesome game.

    Yeah, I've noticed that hitting the notes early works better. Have you tried messing with the notes delay setting?

    from what i read on one of his "issues" threads, to hit the multi-touch chords at the moment, just hit the red button by itself. I haven't tested it since I'd rather wait for a multi-touch compatible version.

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I thought I would post this here for future readers: IDKJava (my friend and I) have taken over the development of this game, as the original owner didn't have enough time. We have so far implemented multi-touch and are working on getting a release APK up. Check out our google code page for more details: firetaps - Project Hosting on Google Code.

    I couldn't put my songs on FoF to ToF. The application says something about the song folder, but it only has a cache folder where there are 2 songs of the game. I tried to copy my songs to that folder. That just doesn't work. What should I do now?
