Random note generator for sight reading practice
Not really a game, but I would like to see a two-staff random note generator that can keep track of how many and % right or wrong. Listens to your keyboard for answer. In upgrades, it can expand to add sharps and flats, change key signatures, or generated random chords. Some beginners would prefer to practice this way rather than canned songs.
It's nowhere near as good as something integrated into Yousician would be, but until Yousician tries to tackle this, here's a free, non-ad-supported iOS app called "Notes": https://apps.apple.com/us/app/notes-sight-reading-trainer/id874386416
It does require MIDI, since it doesn't have audio pitch detection. It's totally non-commercial -- no ads or data collection, no IAP, just a developer solving their own problem and sharing it with others. I'm not affiliated with it except as a happy user.

Really good idea! I hope a new update ads this feature. Can tell I’m playing from intervals from middle c and not memorising the actual notes of the staff. Random note generator with one note at a time would be very beneficial to my learning!

Excellent idea. I imagine that would be a killer feature for advanced musicians.
Personally, I know very little music theory and certainly don't know how to read sheet music. I also don't expect to learn it on Yousician, but I think some of those random phrase generator exercises might help train my brain to react to it as fast as I react to the tabs.
I would extend this to random phrase generator, where one could train with not only single notes, but short, or longer, passages as well. Configurable, combined with statistical analysis of players performance, this could be really handy tool for smoothing out the soft spots from your playing. In addition, it would mean eternal flow of etudes for sight reading and technique.
I could not agree more!! Astonishing that no-one have created a flash-recall app for sitereading notes on guitar. It is by far the the best way to learn for serious students/musicians. Meanwhile "everyone" keep making dumbed down apps to learn chords for hit songs by tabulator training... or jumping balls on colors for that matter. No offence.
