MXP4 (http://www.mxp4.com), the No1 legal social music gaming company, today announces the development of its new game Bopler Tap Tour, and Bubble Music to be officially launched at Midem this weekend.
Bopler Tap Tour
The new Bopler Tap Tour game is a major step in the development of MXP4's current social music gaming portfolio, inviting players to tour the world by playing music games city by city. Users get to experience 'playing live' to a crowd of fans as they progress in the adventure, gather more and more fans and unlock bigger venues to play in. Throughout the game, Larry, the efficient yet friendly manager chaperones users to maximise on star status. The game allows players to progress up the music ladder through a series of 'gigs', sharing with and competing against their friends via Facebook.
Using the same format as previous games, the new edition allows users access to a vast back catalogue of music, including hits from LMFAO, David Guetta, Far East Movement Gorillaz, Fall Out Boy, Tiesto, Robbie Williams and many more! These songs are made legally available through MXP4's global partnerships with leading labels and publishers, allowing for the first time ever a catalogue of hundreds of licensed tracks to be legally available in a social gaming format.
