'Guitar Hero' headed to Android phones

'Guitar Hero' headed to Android phones So far the largest complaint about the Android Market has been its lack of so-called "professional apps"; premium apps from big name publishers.
In fact, all of the applications in the store are free of charge, and although its hard to complain with free, many of the games have been lacking, even compared to free games available in the Apple App Store.

Beginning soon however, the Android Market will see premium content, most notably a mobile version of the blockbuster hit Guitar Hero: World Tour.

The official announcement adds: "Gamers will use the G1's sensitive touch-screen to play along with 15 rock classics including Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water', Guns'n'Roses' 'Welcome to the Jungle' and Black Sabbath's 'Paranoid'. There's also a bonus song available every month, and users can log on to guitarheromobile.com to create their own rock star persona."

The G1 referenced is of course the popular T-Mobile Android G1, available in the US. It is also safe to assume the bonus songs will cost extra money as is the standard with the Guitar Hero and Rock Band console games.

For those not interested in the music game, other eventual arrivals to the Market include "Who Wants to be a Millionaire", "Tetris", and "Monopoly."
