    Square Enix just released their new turn based strategy game Song Summoner Encore for iPhone/iPod. In it you turn songs on your iPod into fighters to combat the evil machines. It's kinda expensive (and large at ~240MB), but contains about 30 hours of gameplay, so it's worth it IMO especially if you love games like this (disgaea, Final Fantasy Tactics) like I do. I really like the variety, even if it's not as heavy as FFT. All in all it's a cool game if a little unpolished.

    Is anyone here playing it?

    Do you have any tips for Tune Trooper creation? I've found (sort of) that choosing songs with titles and artists of about the same length gives better results.

    I just got it today and have only been messing around with creating troopers. Occasionally when entering the Hip-o-Drome, Soul Master gives tips on creating.

    So far he has told me that songs with the words "Hero" or "Rock" in them create good heroes.

    I only have two songs with rock in the title and one with hero, but only one of these three has been noticeably better than average, and im not even sure if it's related to the name. It was Rocky Raccoon by the Beatles and gave me a pretty nice silver hip-hop monk.

    There are probably more key words like these that will have a higher probability of creating strong troopers. If anyone finds them out please post them here

    I think the tips only apply to that one time. By far my best trooper is a (I think B grade) Swan Song I got from "Kill the Messenger" by Jack's Mannequin. I ranked it up from Bronze to gold and it now has 110 magic attack, >240 SP, and a whole bunch of really fun fire attacks. If you have a song that makes Swan Songs, try it a couple times until you get a bronze one that has high starting magic (best is >30) and requires 13 Pitch Pearls to upgrade once (higher requirements to upgrade = stronger at higher ranks). Mine can take down 4+ strong bots from full health, and deals ~200 damage routinely.

    Also, if you want more rewinds, download and beat the lite version of the game; it'll give you a password you can enter at a shop for lots of awesome stuff.

    Yes please, if anyone does have one, please let me know as well. boy@woh.rr.com

    In regards to what songs do what, I think it is random. I got a really good hero from the song Across the Rubicon by Army of Lovers and when I did songs with "Hero" in the title, I never got higher than a Ranking C and they didn't have any outstanding stats to speak of, but I would also use the same song over and over and get different results, but always the same picture.

    Good luck!
