Slightly off key

Abylight's Music On: Playing Piano is the fifth musical outing from the Spanish developer, and one that takes a slightly different approach to its predecessors. In some ways that works out to its credit, but without the fun of free play it comes out...

This is one of the best for 200 points. Much better than the first one that was called "Learning Piano". The songs are mostly known by all and allow you to win garlands and bronze, silver, and gold medals. Wish they would have put more songs on this game or charge 500 points and put out another game like this with more songs! This game gives you approx. 15 songs or so! My husband loves when I play these songs out loud for him...LOL!! I ain't half-bad for not having learned how to play professional piano!!

I have to agree, I have downloaded both piano games for the DSI and I absolutely love them, especially this one. It is the best $2.00 that iI have ever spent on video games. I"m hoping that they release some more including possibly one of Holiday music. Keep it up Abylight! beep beep! Brett!
