The Rock vs EDM  RAMfest Internationals Meet and Greet competition is taking social media gaming to a next level, you have to check this out: 

The game Rock vs. EDM is an application that lives on both RAMfest`s main sponsors, Red Heart Rum and Olmeca Tequila`s Facebook pages. The game and concept, developed by Hellocomputer, is an app that incorporates 16 bit graphic style along with a classic arcade game play.  Hellocomputer drew inspiration from games such as the ever popular Street Fighter and Metal Slug, whilst making sure to convey the core essence of RAMfest, that now has two main genres – Rock and EDM. 

Rock vs. EDM has proven to be an innovative way for fans to identify with their preferred music genre.
