Ratings and Reviews
As from the name, Incredibox is incredible. I remember a few years ago, someone told me to go visit this music creation website called Incredibox, and I really enjoyed it. I messed around in V3 (because it was the coolest sounding one) and I eventually stopped and forgot about it, until a year later when I visited it again for 20 minutes and then left. A couple of days ago, the tune I created just popped into my head and got stuck, I then did some digging (as I forgot the name) and I eventually stumbled back onto the website in which I found it was now an app. I gotta say, that app is phenomenal, the ability to share the songs you make easily online now makes you to listen to inspire or just to hear something cool. The new auto play feature makes it so you can just turn it on and the app just randomizes the beats for amazing background noise, so you can just turn it on, and enjoy while doing work or whatever. They also let you change from 7 versions from throughout the years, and I was able to mess around in three brand new versions (it was at V4 the last time I used the website) and it’s still being worked on for new content.
All in all, Incredibox is a phenomenal experience that let’s you easily make your own music, and I highly recommend it if you’re into that sort of thing.
HOW DID I NOT MENTION THE STYLE, it’s great, plain and simple, great animations and great character design.
Very cool, a few minor UX issues.
This app is great, I recommend you try it, it's worth the price. That being said, there are some UX issues that should probably be improved. Because it's presumably a web port, the app is not adapted perfectly for phones. The buttons are very small and hard to press on an iPhone XR, and I can only imagine this is worse on an SE. So I think there should be some better UI scaling on small screens. I've also tested the app on iPad though, and I've found that the UI is perfectly sized for an eleven inch iPad. The other problem that I've noticed, that is probably more minor for most users but will bother the occasional person, myself included: Very little / bad trackpad support. The cursor can click some buttons and they'll even light up but won't do anything. Other buttons are simply not pressable whatsoever. You can't drag characters onto the stand with the trackpad either. I think this is something that might be a worthwhile feature in this kind of app. My personal opinion is that better UI scaling on phones is a bigger priority though. One other thing— I think this app would be 10x more useful as a music app if it could just run the tunes you've made in the background like other music apps. I'm unsure if that is actually possible since it's generating the music on the fly, but I would use this app much more if I could just exit the app and keep playing the tune I've made in the background.
Fun to use and awesome story
I bought the Incredibox app for my kids after giving the demo a try. Their school music teacher had it on a list of game suggestions for kids. The game (music mixer?) is simple - drag and drop each character into a spot and they add their voice/sound to a song. There are rhythm and percussion (think beatbox) sections, and characters singing a little phrase. It’s really well done and everything synchs pretty seamlessly with many song combos becoming something I wouldn’t mind as background music. It would probably rate 5 stars there alone, but the developer goes a step further - when you build a song with certain characters, it’ll unlock a short animated movie. The movies don’t have a dialogue, but they don’t need one. They’re artistic and each tells a story from whatever time period/reality the story particular music mix comes from. Each type of music selection - for example Sunrise or Dystopia - has three short movies to unlock that progress a particular story. So there’s eight different types of movies with three progressive installments each.
