Often ridiculed – and often underestimated: music and rhythm games. They are particularly suitable for parties and nobody is safe from them at large events. That’s why there are now so many different titles in the genre. Not only karaoke mixes and guitar simulators but also fans of certain series of games or friends of absurd humor can get their money worth. And even if you don’t want to pay something for a game like this, there are also a lot of free music games like piano tiles. Because this genre of games is very popular there are a lot of free browser and mobile games that are like guitar hero and piano tiles. Of course, this genre is also used for advertising, but not only for music stuff but also for example for candy. Juicy Drop DJ Dropz for example is a music rhythm game that was built for advertising. It’s like guitar hero just with candy and easier.
