5 Best Games Like Avicii Invector

Updated on

Avicii Invector is a rhythm-based music game developed as a tribute to the late progressive house legend, Tim Bergling, who was famously known by his alias, Avicii. Since his passing, many have aspired to follow in the icon's footsteps, using his tools and techniques to carve beats that strike all the same heartstrings. And video games, believe it or not, haven't been all that far behind.

While rhythm-based video games aren't a new thing by any means, Avicii Invector did slap a fresh lick of paint on it. But peel away a couple of layers, and you'll discover a whole lot more. Therefore, if you're looking for a game that hits all the same notes as it, then be sure to give these five a try.

5. Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

Granted, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory may hit a little differently on the musical scale, given the fact that it's mostly made up of epic battle anthems and interlude tracks from the series. But, having said that, if you are a fan of the style Avicii Invector employs, and simply wish to slay a few notes while carving up a few challenges, then it's definitely worth an eye. Or, you know, an ear.

Providing you have enjoyed any of the numerous chapters Kingdom Hearts has put out over the last twenty years, then you'll more than likely get on with the majority of the tracks the game houses. And gameplay-wise, it is the simple case of jumping, gliding, and basically smashing objects with a Keyblade in time with the notes. That's Melody of Memory, in a nutshell.

4. DJ Hero (Series)

Of course, something like DJ Hero would, in this case, be the most obvious choice. That is, if you're willing to unearth one of the deck add-ons that's needed to play it. And if that's no bother, then by all means, power up the 2009 rhythm hit, dust off your Xbox 360—and start performing to a crowd of adoring, albeit very textureless fans.

DJ Hero‘s formula isn't all that different from Guitar Hero, given the fact that both hail from the same publisher. And so, if you can mash buttons on a plastic guitar—then you can most definitely hammer them on a plastic deck. And what's more, if your music taste falls more into the chart-style domain, then you'll feel right at home with this one. That is, if you're happy to dig out your old console.

3. Fuser


Think of Fuser as a spiritual successor to DJ Hero. When stacking the two side-by-side, it's evident they share the same influences. Or, at least, Fuser knew how to replicate the assets DJ Hero pioneered several years prior to its development. But with a decade between them, you can pretty much understand why the formula was in need of a well-deserved facelift.

The idea behind Fuser is simple: assemble your kit, grab a wallet full of beats, and dominate the music circuit. Between performances, you'll have to accumulate new tools to further enhance your sound, which is another way of saying, learning how to master “All Star” by Smash Mouth on a plastic controller.

2. DropMix

Now, if you're really wanting to branch out and begin a whole new musical quest for stardom, then you'll want to spend some time with DropMix, an app on Android & iOS. Though, it is worth pointing out that, without a heart devoted to collecting its physical cards and system counterparts, you won't be able to experience all the game has to offer.

Of course, if that isn't an issue, then you'll be pleased to know that, with all the right tools in place, DropMix is, without a doubt, the closest thing you'll get to living the life of a stay-at-home DJ. Providing you have an ear for mixes and latest chart-topping singles, you'll be on your way to developing some next-level anthems from the comfort of your own front porch.

1. Just Shapes & Beats

If you're heavily into your Android and iOS games, particularly Geometry Dash, then you'll want to spend a little time with Just Shapes & Beats. Although a far cry from any of the top-shelf rhythm games on the market, it still makes for an ideal Sunday afternoon killer. And the best part is, it requires barely any life-long skills in order to master its mechanics.

Just Shapes & Beats follows a very simple structure, allowing for you to play as a small shape as you dodge waves of attacking beats and FX. With the ability to recruit up to four players, you and a small team can go toe-to-toe with some of the biggest up-and-coming dubstep artists on the map. And as luck would have it, it's available for just under $15 on most digital marketplaces.
