Ratings and Reviews
Misleading promo video
Too good to be true. The app’s promo video makes it seem like it comes loaded with a ridiculous number of classic chiptune tracks from yesteryear. Not the case at all. I’m assuming there was a previous copyright violation issue and the unlicensed tracks had to be removed. There are no tracks from Sonic, Duck Tales, or Kirby. However, if you’re a fan of RoboCop you’re in luck. I can’t say for sure what the circumstances for the missing content because I don’t see any indication in the version history as to why the songs featured in the video aren’t in the actually app. The promo video should be updated to reflect accessible content.
1 star for inter-app audio (IAA) functionality. Just wish I could remix classic SEGA tunes in AUM without jumping through hoops to get the files into the darn thing.
UPDATE: After looking through the online support materials I see there are ways to add files. Again, I bought the app expecting to have immediate access. There is no indication in the description on the App Store page, nor is there any indication in the promo video that this is the case. Updated from 1 star to 2 because with more effort it will be more useful and enjoyable.
Please Update for iPhone X Max
Awesome app, loyal user. Please update for big phone screen sizes
Also when a phone call comes in or another app that turns off the audio of Gambi opens, when resuming Gambi the audio is distorted. Playing either too fast or too slow, forcing me to force quit the app and reopen it
Thank You for this app and I hope it continues to improve,🙏
Developer Response ,
Thanks for always supporting GaMBi. I'm sorry to hear about the distortion problem after receiving calls. We'll look into that for our next service release.
