Twenty nine years later a toned down remake of the 1980’s original Fame is created. Alongside the release of the remake comes the official FAME “rhythm dancing game for the iPhone/iPod touch.”
Let your fingers do the dancing and see how far you can go. The game includes 3 tracks from the remake along with 3 difficulty levels (easy, medium, hard). You choose the song and let your fingers tap and slide while you master each and every move. The goal is to dance, or in this case tap, your way to Fame!
I grew up singing and dancing away to the Oscar winning original score. Therefore the remake doesn’t have a chance in my book. That being said, the songs from the remake are nothing less than a headache. I think this app would have better luck if it incorporated the original songs that so many people fill their music libraries to on a daily basis. The dancing silhouette also did nothing for me. Adding real video of an actual person requiring the player to tap correctly in order for the person to dance and music to play would in my opinion make for a much better game.
However, for those who like to give their fingers a work out and were not around to enjoy the old tunes, may find this to be a nice addition. No leg warmers required.
