Beautiful story-driven rhythm game ‘Lanota’ is now available on the App Store – TouchArcade


Turns out other games hit the App Store this week that don’t involve throwing capsules at creatures. Lanota ($1.99), which really impressed us when we first watched it last week, has bypassed the usual Thursday midnight release rush and is now available on iOS. Touching on many great concepts we loved in our review of SEE (Free) last month, Lanota merges rhythmic action with a beautiful artistic narrative depicting a world that is slowly becoming monochromatic due to the loss of music and color, and how you must correct this by “tuning” a song on each level to slowly restore society.

At its most basic level, Lanota’s rhythm mechanic is truly intriguing and unique. Instead of the tried and true notes falling vertically from the top to the bottom of the screen where you have to type them in time, Lanota features a circular arena with much more variance on where and when you should hit the device. Coupled with the promise of an accompanying picture book and related collectibles Lanotathe challenging story of, any rhythm game lover should be sure to give the game a try.

Noxy Games further promised that Lanota will be a content-filled premium purchase from the start, and detailed that the base game consists of two main story chapters and 11 tracks, and an optional $3.99 in-app purchase provides a side story and 5 additional songs, with more tunes and story additions to come. Without micro-transactions, consumables or mandatory internet connection, Lanota is definitely a game that should be supported by anyone, for whatever reason, who feels aggrieved by the success of games such as Pokemon GO (Free) and in the direction that mobile gaming is unequivocally taking right now. Even better, you’ll get a quality rhythm game to boot. We’ll take a closer look Lanota in our review in the near future, but until then, leave your thoughts and thoughts on our thread.
