Splash Damage's new effort on iOS is a rhythm action game where the emphasis is decidedly placed on "action".

Ostensibly a collection of quick time events set to a saturday morning cartoon storyline, and sporting top visuals, animation, and sound, you could be forgiven for writing off Tempo as all bluster with no substance.

And while the action is quite shallow, there's definitely depth to be found in the character progression, and a deep satisfaction in completing stages as quickly as possible.

Tempo is out this February on iPhone and iPad. Watch the video above to get an idea of how it plays.
