Skillz: The DJ Game Lands Top Spot On The App Store

Activision didn’t completely ruin the music genre. There are still some good games out there that aren’t Guitar Hero or DJ Hero. In fact, fans of the genre seem to have fallen in love with a brand new IP for mobile devices called Skillz: The DJ Game and it has managed to claim the top spot within the genre on the app store.

Joe Gilbertson, Co-founder of Playpen Studios commented in the press release about the success of the game, saying…

“We’re blown away by the game’s performance right out the gate and humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response that we’re seeing from gamers,” … “We’ve dedicated the last five years of our life to this game and can’t believe that everything fell into place with the emergence of tablet devices as a viable gaming platform. Skillz lets anyone experience what it’s like to be a club DJ with a library of hot, original tracks from popular labels. We can’t wait for more people to pick it up and enjoy – the more downloads there are, the more tracks we’ll be releasing for download!”

Much like Activision and Harmonix’s popular Hero series, gamers spin, scratch and mix songs by popular artists to get the crowd moving and dancing to your grooves. The gameplay is very similar to the Hero games and Playpen Studios wanted to ensure that the music genre lived on, despite being milked dry by EA and Activision.

There are a total of 25 songs available on the game from artists such as Kid Cudi, Diplo and People Under The Stairs. What’s more is that Playpen has some DLC planned for the game, but nothing milk-worthy like Activision’s $15 play-packs that would only include a few songs. In fact, you can pick up a digital copy of SkillZ: The DJ Game from the app store for the iPad for only $5.99, which isn’t bad at all.
