Gameplay[change | change source]

Playing Guitar Hero III Mobile is similar to playing other games in the Guitar Hero series. Mobile uses 3 frets instead of 5. Each column of numbered keys on a phone's keypad is a fret. The numbered keys used are "1", "4", and "7" for green notes, "2", "5", and "8" for red notes, and "3", "6", and "9" for yellow notes. Once the note(s) reach the bottom, the player must play the note(s) by pressing or holding down the number key(s) in order to score points. Players can turn on Star Power to get more points by the "*" (star) button on the keypad or the "OK" button in the center of the directional pad.[1][2][3][4]

Soundtrack[change | change source]

Guitar Hero III Mobile has 15 songs to play from Guitar Hero II and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Every month, more songs can be downloaded.[4][5]
