When I saw this application in the AppStore, I knew I had to have it. As an organist and flutist, I like to try out these “real” music games that come out on the iPhone and iPad that not just requires you to push a button at the right time (like Guitar Hero). Instead, I like games that allow me some creative spirit.
Basic Game Idea & Learning how to play
The main idea with Magic Fiddle is that you are playing, well a magic fiddle, an instrument that sounds like a violin but that you play slightly differently. There is a storybook mode that is designed to help you learn playing the fiddle and I must say that they have done a very good job at that. Not only do you learn how the application functions but also the basics of music playing, applicable to almost every instrument.
