Tap Tap Revenge. Even if you don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you’ve probably heard the name tossed around here or there. The popular Tap Tap Revenge franchise comes from iPhone game developer Tapulous, and it’s proven to be one helluva cash cow for the smallish start-up from Palo Alto, CA. Following the release of their new flagship game, Riddim Ribbon, Tapulous CEO Bart Decrem had some time to sit down with us to chat about his company’s good fortunes, what’s in store for the future, and what Tapulous sees as the dominant smartphone platform for 2010.
Tapulous started off with social-networky apps like Twinkle, but shifted its focus to their social-enabled games after seeing the tremendous growth of Tap Tap Revenge. The company is also looking forward to the launch of the Apple iPad, and will have some iPad specific titles to offer in the near future.
Android isn’t yet in the cards for Tapulous, but they’re apparently kicking around some ideas for breaking into the Android Market. For 2010, it’s going to be all about the iPhone OS and the devices that run it.
Finally, we can apparently look forward to more Riddim Ribbon titles from Tapulous. The first B.E.P edition is just the start, and we’re told that a general Riddim Ribbon release is headed for the AppStore. If you haven’t yet checked out Riddim Ribbon, find it on the AppStore link below.
