[ Admin. note. I feel I should lighten up the mood in this blog a little bit, due to my previous post, which of course reports on the recent passing of North Korea's dear leader Kim Jong Il, and if you would believe the US intelligence reports, is the the person responsible for single-handedly bringing the once mighty and glorious North Korea to the s***hole.]
I have an officemate whose quite obsessed with Korean pop idol IU. ‘Quite obsessed’ might be an understatement for her IU fantasy, ‘coz I swear, she almost has everything every IU fans are craving for. She have, amongst her hundreds of IU merchandises – IU themed bags, IU jackets, jewelries and accessories worn by IU on her MVs and TV shows, and even her cute poodle ‘Shinji’ wears these IU dog warmers with matching collar. I haven’t been to her home yet, but I’m guessing her home can be considered as an IU shrine for die-hard IU fans (just like Elvis Presley’s Graceland).
I got my Apple Iphone 4s just recently and while tinkering with the apps at the Apple Store, my obsessed 2 IU officemate suggested (or should I say forced) to me a newly released app in the store to download. In her own words, this app ‘is a killer’ and ‘you will never put your Iphone down again’ after you played with this. So I got intrigued by her sales pitch and tried out this ‘new game app’ exclusively available at the ITunes Store.
So what’s this ‘magical’ Apple Store app recommended to me by my uber IU fanatic officemate. Guess what, its an IU rhythm game based on her recently released full length album entitled Last Fantasy.
Created by, dooub inc., makers of the hit Kpop rhythm game app Girls’ Generation (The Boys) Shake and Super Junior Shake, this newly released IU Shake rhythm game app can really be quite ‘addictive’.
Here are some of the game infos and features of the IU Shake (Last Fantasy) app taken from its official homepage:
Tap & Shake to the music!
IU Shake offers traditional “TAP” style of gameplay as well as a new “SHAKE-WHEEL” mode, using a seamless-gesture technology developed by dooub. The “SHAKE-WHEEL” mode will make you feel like a DJ scratching the turntable!
Introducing Card Deck System!
IU SHAKE rewards you cards when you complete a game. These cards can be collected, which include unreleased pictures of IU, or they can be used in game like an item and receive higher scores!
Make your own notes!
IU SHAKE will allow you to make your own notes and enjoy them anytime you want! This awesome feature will bring unlimited amount of new contents!
After playing with IU Shake for a while, I guess my officemate is right. It really can be quite addicting once you get that rhythm goin. I also like most of the songs in IU’s new album Last Fantasy, so I feel it contributes to the overall appeal of IU Shake game for me.
I highly recommend IU Shake not only to IU fans but to all rhythm and music fans as well. Visit the official IU Shake Facebook page for more details.
