Nordic Games announces brand new online game Lyric Star is now available to play

Friday 20th August 2010: Lyric Star, the new online music game from Nordic Games is now available to play on the We Sing website. Players are challenged to use musical timing to add lyrics to tracks from Nordic's latest release - We Sing Encore. Gaining points by timing the lyrics on top of the melody correctly, players can then compare their scores with other We Sing fans via the Lyric Star scoreboard. The game is now available to play for free on the We Sing Website.

Lyric Star utilises songs from five top selling artists that would bring any karaoke party together. Spanning; pop, R&B, and indie music. The chart topping artists featured include: Cheryl Cole (Fight for this Love), Elton John (Tiny Dancer), Lady Gaga (Just Dance), Plain White Ts (Hey There Deliah) and Rihanna (Umbrella).

Players will need more than just rhythm to succeed; it's a test of speed and co-ordination. Players are given a backing track and need to hit the right notes, at the right time to get the lyrics to play over the backing music. Too slow or fast and you'll hear a buzzer, letting you know you are off beat. For every lyric that is missed the blocks build up, when the blocks hit the top of the game screen, it's game over.

"Fans of We Sing are going to have a lot of fun with Lyric Star, it will appeal to those who are already We Sing enthusiasts as well as those new to the series. It's another addition to the We Sing website that has been added for fans of karaoke and the We Sing Series." Said Nik Blower, Nordic Games Sales and Marketing Director.

Lyric Star is now available to play on the We Sing website: www.wesinggame.com. By signing up to the We Sing website players can also link the game to their personal Facebook and Twitter profiles. The ability to upload your score on to Facebook and Twitter is the perfect platform for those wishing to show off their score on the leader board.
