“Moana,” Disney’s computer-animated film about a young woman’s epic journey with the legendary demigod Maui, premieres in theaters today. After seeing and enjoying the movie, be sure to check out its official tie-in mobile game. On second thought, do check it out whether you’ve seen the film or not. It’s called Moana: Rhythm Run, and it’s a rhythm-based game that will have you guiding Moana and her pals on their adventure by tapping to the beat of songs from the movie’s soundtrack.
In the game, you have to help Moana fulfill her quest of restoring the heart of the island goddess Te Fiti.

Along the way are various obstacles and enemies that you have to dodge and get rid of. To do that, you need to tap the right buttons at the right times, in accordance with the rhythm of the music.
Adventure to the beat

Even though the game's title includes only her name, Moana is far from the sole playable character in Moana: Rhythm Run. There's also Maui, the legendary demigod. And you'll also journey with Heihei, Pua, and other familiar faces from the film.
Travel across worlds
Adventures on land, sea, and beyond await in Moana: Rhythm Run, with more than 70 levels across different worlds to complete. Watch out for tricky obstacles and fearsome beasts!
