Disney acquires Tapulous TechCrunch has reported today that Disney has purchased iOS game developer Tapulous, the maker behind the very popular Tap Tap Revenge game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
In addition, Tapulous founder Bart Decrem will join Disney as a VP.

Tap Tap Revenge, which started as a game available only to those that had jailbroken their devices, has quietly become one of the most popular games in the Apple App Store, with millions upon millions of downloads. The game is billed as a Guitar Hero-esque music game, for your fingers.

There are multiple versions of the game, with some being general while others are aimed specifically at certain artists, and cost money to purchase, such as Lady Gaga Revenge.

Recently, the company introduced Tap Tap Radiaton for the iPad.

Buying the developer gives Disney a quick "in" the music game business, especially for handheld gaming.
