My family and I love musicals, television shows that feature the actors bursting out into song and we swoon over live stage shows. A bucket list item of ours is to actually appear on stage as a part of the chorus in some kind of way off Broadway show. We all took turn with the Zya App I can live out part of my fantasy and create my own mixes.
What We Like
We love that there are a variety of diverse characters. There are several genres to choose from and the characters from each genre can be mixed and matched as a song is created.
There are different genres of songs to play with. Pop, Hip Hop and Rock are represented for your use.
The music features familiar tunes. Current pop songs, including lots of Lady Gaga (!) are featured and can be mixed and mashed.
Mixing the songs. The app loads a bit slowly (see below) but once you get past this t’s fun to mix the different hooks and hear your creations.
There are plenty of choices to select from when creating a mix. It can a bit overwhelming scrolling through but it was interesting laying the right mixes and making the best beats. This was a little overwhelming for me although the teens liked picking the “perfect” mix.
What We Did Not Like
We found that the app was a little slow to load. It could be my phone (which I admit is close to full) but loading time took a while which caused some delays while playing the game.
To advance and earn characters, one must either be very patient,earning coins through play, or one could opt to buy songs and additional characters. I’m not too vexed about this one; I have made in app purchases with other games.
