Description

Dr. Seuss Band is a music simulation game similar in style and gameplay to Guitar Hero. The player gets to pick from 10 different songs (all Dr. Seuss of course), and which instrument to play it with. There are five different "base" instruments to pick from, but added to that are added attachments which all add different special effects to the sound. There are two main game modes. Either the songs are played that are in the game, or there's a Free Play mode where the player can compose his/her own songs by playing live.

As the song plays, the player has to tap or hold the corresponding buttons at the bottom of the screen to match the colored lines (notes) scrolling down in time with the music. Depending on the difficulty, there can be up to three full sets of buttons (low notes, normal and high notes) which needs to be swapped on the fly as the song is playing. At the end of the song the player is rewarded a score depending on how many notes were hit and how accurately they were timed to the music.

The 10 songs featured in the game are:
  • Dr. Seuss's ABC
  • The Cat In The Hat
  • There's a Wocket in my Pocket!
  • Green Eggs And Ham
  • Hop On Pop
  • Horton Hears A Who
  • Oh Say Can You Say?
  • Oh, The Places You'll Go
  • The Bippolo Seed
  • The Cat In The Hat Comes Back
Some of the songs are locked at first, but can be unlocked if certain scores are met in the songs. Getting high scores may also unlock new difficulties and instrument parts.
