The game is free, charging instead for new music downloads added weekly. With 40 million downloads of different versions of the app, users have collectively bought and downloaded more than 25 million tracks through the game.

The timing is perfect for developer Tapulous -- which was acquired earlier this year by Disney Mobile -- as the past two Christmases saw new versions of the game that both ranked No. 1 on the App Store between Christmas Day and New Years. On Christmas Day 2009, Tap Tap Revenge 3 was downloaded more than 800,000 times.
