This sounds interesting. Might give it a look.

Hi! Audio Rush sounds like an interesting game, which I'd like to at least try out, but, when I found it in the App Store, the first thing written on the screen containing details of the game was: "Requires IOS 13.2 or later". I still use an iPhone 6 with IOS 12, and I would guess that the App Store detected this, as I couldn't even download the game. I plan to try this game when I get a newer iPhone: in the meantime, I felt it was a good idea for me to mention my experience of trying to get Audio Rush here, just in case anyone else is interested in it but has an i-device which can't run IOS 13.

I just downloaded this game and so far I like it I love the fact that it’s a really simple game to grasp still learning the tones of it of course but I think this game has great potential and I am looking forward to seeing what you guys do more with it

I ap running iOs 13 on my iPhone SE and it works just fine for me' Like the game. Lots of fun.

Clare stated that she was running under iOS 12 and the game requires iOS 13.2. Are you running iOS 13.2 or after? If so, that will explain Clare's problem. Have a good day.

It's a great little game. I look forward to future updates.

really enjoy the game. However, i've noticed that even after the game is over the sound for either left or right still plays untill you touch the screen. If this is a bug, would love to see it fixed in the next update.
Also, I have an idea that would make this game more fun. Give us the ability to switch from the tones, to say, the sounds of cars coming from left to right, if we wanted that. Another way this could be intigrated would be to make the cars idea a bonus game that could be unlocked after getting a spacific number of points Keep up the great work

Sorry Claire. Thought you meant that your phone could no longer be updated.

Well, I'm confused. On the face of it, the game sounds simple enough to play. However, I can only seem to get a maximum of four points, if I'm lucky. Sometimes, when I move left or right, depending on the tone, I still run into the obstacle, even though the tone is indicating to move in that direction. It would be nice if the obstacles themselves, made some kind of noise.

I just tried it out and it works fine on my iPhone running iOS 13.4. For those who are encountering the problem that the game stops after a few obstacles, you have to hold your finger on the screen while driving. If you then hear the tone, just move the finger but hold it on the screen. When then the next tone comes up, you can move the finger accordingly. With this procedure, I scored 46 points. ;-)

Hi! Now that I have the new iPhone SE which has IOS 13 on it, I have been able to download and play Audio Rush, and I'm enjoying it. At first I wondered if I would, it took me a little while to work out how much I should move my finger to avoid the obstacles, but once I'd got used to that, I gradually improved my scores. This game may seem boring to some, but it's not as easy as it may seem, I found I needed to concentrate hard to be sure I'd move at the right time to miss the obstacles, but that doesn't stop me enjoying the game, and I hope my scores will continue to improve in the future.

Yes. I didn't think I'd like it, but it's a good little mobile game. It's kind of what I thought Flappy Bird would be like; a game that makes you want to try just one more time after you lose. I like the game center integration, I'm so close to getting the high score on hard mode. lol

I just downloaded it, put my finger on the screen and immediately got 0 points, so I guess I lost the game before I even started. I can't find instructions anywhere.

Submitted by David Standen on Saturday, August 8, 2020

The objective of "Audio Rush" is to avoid the obstacles, which are represented by either 4 rapid tones or 4 slower tones. You don't need to swipe until you hear either of these tones. When you hear the rapid tones, swipe left until they disappear, then lift your finger off the screen. When you hear the same 4 tones played slowly, swipe right until they disappear and again, lift your finger off the screen. The 2 high-pitched tones you hear during gameplay is the sound of your score increasing. the more you progress, the faster these tones will become. I hope this explanation makes sense.

Ah, swipe! That's not what the instructions said at all. Thanks. Makes sense now. Pretty boring, actually, unless being at the easy level has something to do with that.
