  • Summary: Let's Tap is an innovative gaming experience on the Wii with easy to pick-up-and-play controls that will appeal to gamers of all ages. Simply place the Wii Remote on a box or a flat surface and tap! All methods of tapping (light, medium, hard) will allow you to jump hurdles and create environmental effects such as a dazzling fireworks display. There are five fun-filled game modes, all of which allow for multiplayer fun. PICK-UP-AND-PLAY CONTROLS: Every member of the family can jump into the game with these simple controls. Players place their Wii Remote on a box or flat surface and tap through five gameplay modes. FIVE UNIQUE GAME MODES: Tap Runner: Sprint for the finish line in over 16 courses while avoiding obstacles including hurdles, ice wall and electric fields. (1-4 players) Rhythm Tap: There are a wide range of songs to master in Rhythm Tap. Feel the beat and tap light, medium, hard in sync with the on-screen tap indicators. (1-4 players) Silent Blocks: Different modes using light and hard taps to strategically remove blocks one at a time from the column without causing it to topple over. (1-4 players) Bubble Voyager: Clad in a space suit, solo players tap to keep their character afloat through many levels filled with dangerous objects; a double tap will launch a missile. In multiplayer matches, you will shoot each other a number of times to win. (1-4 players) Visualizer: Everyone will take their turn with several Unique stages including Fireworks, Paint, River, Gem Game and Ink. Tapping with light, medium and hard strokes produces on-screen effects ranging from a fireworks display to undersea bubbles. In special tap sequences, various sea animals will appear.

  1. At $30, the game is absolutely worth checking out. Not just for its look or its addictive qualities, but for the sheer, simple joy of getting to play with entirely new toys.

    As far as social Wii games go, Let's Tap is a great addition to the immense stable already available for the console and more than worth a punt. Bold, colourful and smile-inducing, it's a work of unique tapping genius, which is definitely something you don't hear everyday.
  3. Prope proves a simple concept can go a very long way, and while the experience won't last forever its a game you'll remember.
  4. It works shockingly well. [July 2009, p.85]
  5. Although Let's Tap has some really great ideas, my main problem with this title is that there just isn't enough to it. Unfortunately, with just four games and a visualizer, the game feels more like a tech or gameplay demo rather than a full-fledged game.
  6. If you're after a quirky multiplayer game that won't break the bank, then it's probably worth a shot, but if you generally play alone or want more substance from your games you'll likely feel a bit short changed.
  7. A kooky idea on paper with diminishing returns in reality.

    If you got a family then Let's tap is worth a rent(in a good way). The 4 core activities branch out into many different little mini games that can keep one occupied for hours in trying to score the highest. The game however is drastically short for single players and is not recommended for such. Expand
