Confirming the news, the band said: "We’re hitting the Apple iPhone App store again, this time so that you can play games on your phone! With all of our kids wild about it, we thought it would be super cool if you could play Tap Tap Metallica style, so we hooked up with the fine folks over at Tapulous and guess what? Ten Met songs are now ready for you to attack . . . check it out for just $4.99 here.”
Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica is the first game in the Tap Tap Revenge series to include a Bluetooth-based Battles Mode where players challenge friends to a point-by-point battle where they can deploy bombs and other special objects to distract the opposition and come out victorious. Accompanying the Career Mode is a new fast-paced Arcade Mode where players are challenged with yet more bombs and other special objects that make the game that much more difficult.
When asked for a quote about the game, Lars Ulrich asked his eleven year old son, Myles, who said, "You haven’t lived ’till you’ve played this!"
Everyone who purchases Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica will be entered into a daily prize draw, with prizes including a trip to Las Vegas for Metallica’s show there on December 5, including airfare, hotel, tickets (duh!) and meet and greet passes.
Songs included in the game are:
• ‘Enter Sandman’

3 Game Modes:
Face off P2P in BLUETOOTH BATTLE MODE, and launch crazy new weapons like Ink Splatter, Tiny Tappers, and Fade To Black. There’s the solo ARCADE MODE, where your radar will warn you of incoming bombs, and you can earn shields and 16x points. Or CAREER MODE, where you rack up mad points, but with no attacks.
Also A Metallica feed displays band news, challenges, and public battles.
