Get The App
Incredibox is a creative, enjoyable and interactive music-making game available on multiple different platforms and devices, including webpage, mobile App and Steam. First released as a web flash game in 2009, its debut instantly received a very positive feedback and as an ever-developing and improving game concept, Incredibox has been constantly adding new styles, features and possibilities to entertain and inspire its potential players, both old and new crossing all age groups. You can obtain the game via its official website and play the first four versions for free; or you can purchase its mobile App (released in 2016) on either iOS or Android to enjoy a full access to all 8 musical genres and themes it currently offers. After more than a decade of developing and improving, Incredibox is now a full-fledged music mix game with so many excitements and fun elements waiting for its players to discover.
The gameplay options are incredibly rich and flexible, catering to a wide range of music tastes, visual preferences and above all, endless mixing possibilities. The basic gameplay method is quite easy to kick a start regardless of the player’s knowledge of music, which means one does not need to be already a composer to play this game! Instead, Incredibox can inspire the creative spirits and potentials for those daring ones who try the unknown. To get started, players first choose one from the four or eight music genres as their mix base (the last four are only available for paid App users); then no matter which version they pick, they are given seven animated characters( or beatboxers/hipsters) with no color scheme at the beginning; at the same time, players can work with and play around twenty given sound icons that are further divided into four groups: beats, effects, melodies and voices. Essentially, to create your own piece of music of the chosen version, you need to select the icons and drop them to your characters to form a unique sound mix. You can also dress your characters accordingly to let them sing and perform the soundtrack of your completion. Of course, if you only wish to hear non-repetitive and unexpected music on each theme, an automatic mode is available, which generates infinite music on a random basis. Apart from the music-making part, this game also gives bonuses via unlocking combos for players who are a little more experimental and willing to take one more step to polish their works. What’s more, it happens when you create a wonderful piece and have the urge to share it with others. That can be easily dealt with the sharing feature of the game -- simply record and share it on your social media, that easy! The gaming community gets to vote their favorite top 50 soundtracks that are accessible on the website regardless of the platform on which the music is made.
Incredibox is certainly a steadily growing game which is never content with the current options. Over the years, it has been constantly incorporating more and more music styles and themes into its game resource bank, going beyond the boundaries of many different cultures and regions of the world and connecting them with the limitless possibilities of music. You can start with an original soundtrack with an urban hip-pop vibe then next time try something entirely different, such a serene Japanese biwa tune or a futuristic vapor wave riff waved into a modern rap piece. With Incredibox, anything is possible if you let your creativity walk its own way. Plus, you can always inspire others with your music because Incredibox allows and encourages sharing and interacting.
Overall, this game has very positive feedback and reviews from players, although there might be some minor issues such as occasional technical bugs with different headphone sets, especially with Bluetooth connection; sometimes users may find some of the unlocked videos a bit suggestive if it’s designed for players of all age groups.
Generally speaking, I strongly recommend this game for its ultra-creativity and combination of both entertainment and music education. Players of different levels can always get something out of the game, be it a chill tune, a masterpiece composition or a messy original soundtrack. Being able to create something audio-visually is exciting because your music is more than a soundtrack, instead it is animated and high performative. You might get a chance to get into the top 50 like a pro musician, but regardless, by creating and sharing, you are already a rock star.
Incredibox is a very fun music game, it is said that this game is developed by the French company so far so good SFSG. The concept of this game is very simple, it contains a variety of music, players can choose different music and rhythm to make a beatbox.
The setting of this game is very, very interesting. After players open the game, they can see that there are seven male characters in the middle screen of the game. The background of the game is gray, and the seven men are of different heights, but they look the same. They all have long black hair and drooping eyes. Players can see that there will be different choices at the bottom of the game screen. We can choose to give these seven-game characters different shapes. For example, we can give them different T-shirts, different hats and glasses. , you can also choose other collocations for them. Some combinations are very funny, and some are very cool because we can see that some are big gold chains, black T-shirts, some are floral shirts and light-colored hats. Different shapes and styles correspond to different beatbox styles. If we choose to give a T-shirt or a hat to a character, the character will start to make music.
These types of music are very rich, and the styles of music are very diverse. We can match seven characters to seven different costumes and sunglasses so that these seven characters play the same piece of music, and their mutual coordination will form a piece of very nice and pleasant music. I guess each player's music mix is different because we have so many choices in the game. Different choices will produce different music, so this game will test our aesthetic ability to music. If you are very good at combining different b-boxes, then in this game, you will use your big strengths to create different types of music, and then create different music. But as a novice of game music, this game is also very suitable for you, because you can feel a lot of fun in it, you don't need to do some technical work, you just need to choose, but these characters can be matched with different styles. So I think this game is very suitable for you whether you are a novice or a master. The music types of this music game are very diverse. Although they are b boxes, their types are rich and diverse. Different collocations correspond to different types of b boxes. Some are very happy, some are very sad, and some are very funny. Yes, it is very melancholy, so how players match up depends on their feelings. It can satisfy players' different mentalities and moods, and match different music types in different situations.
However, the downside of this game is that its colors and background tones are too monotonous. For example, its background is gray. No matter how you choose it, you cannot change the color of the background board. And the characters in the game are the same, that is, seven long-haired men. You can't change their appearance. Although you choose different costumes and matching, their images are relatively solid. So if you play for a long time, players will inevitably experience visual fatigue. So I think this game is more of an auditory enjoyment, not a visual enjoyment.
In general, if you are very interested in music games, I think this game is very suitable for you because its beat-box style is very diverse. Its music is also very coherent and innovative in this game. Players can enjoy different music styles, which I think will also improve your understanding of music.
