There are two main modes. The main mode, simply known as PLAY, gives players access to hundreds of songs which are converted into falling beams of light. Hitting the light plays the right note, similar to Tap Tap Revenge. The hit zone is quite forgiving and tapping anywhere near the light beam’s point produces the right note. But go too far to the left or right and the pitch soon changes. Also the speed of the song is dictated by the player. Tap quicker and the tempo will increase.
The other mode is SOLO where you have a free hand to play the light beam piano to your heart’s content.
You can also change the style of the piano and show a more traditional piano keyboard in a variety of styles including a swirl! I am no musical expert, but the SOLO mode can be quite difficult on a small screen.
Love this app, you can become engrossed in no time, my grandkids could become addicted
