Helium-pitched prodigies Alvin and the Chipmunks set out to prove their musical mastery in this rhythm game inspired by 2007's live action film starring Jason Lee. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore dream of performing at the "Rockathonapalooza," but first the trio must test their chops at school proms, forest arenas, and other smaller-scale venues. As in most titles in the genre, the action involves tapping buttons as scrolling symbols pass over a fixed target.
Perfect timing results in higher scores and the potential to earn combo bonuses. The licensed soundtrack offers 40 songs, including chipmunk renditions of such hits as "All the Small Things," "It's Tricky," "Heartbreak Hotel," "All Star," "Shiny Happy People," "Stand," and "Slow Ride." Alvin and the Chipmunks is startup publisher Brash Entertainment's first video game in a planned portfolio of movie-themed projects.
