Over the years of gaming (since the Wii debut), many dancing games have come and gone. But, one think has always stayed: the joy of dancing. Here are a list of dance games of gamer’s past:
- 1. Just Dance: The favorite of the dance games. Just Dance debuted back in 2009. Ubisoft is behind the creation of the game. There are 3 gameplay modes.
1: The Normal Mode: In which players pick any track and attempt to dance with the on-screen dancer.
2. Last One Standing mode: In which players are eliminated if they don’t score enough points or make too many mistakes.
3. Strike a Pose Mode: In which players start and stop dancing as shown by the on-screen dancer. There is also a “Practice” mode, in which players may dance to tracks without keeping score. Just Dance is always on top of the latest songs.
- 2. Dance Central: A rival of Just Dance. This game has 5 gameplay modes.
1. Perform It: The regular single-player gameplay mode, in which the objective is to complete these dance routines to earn a high score.
2. Workout Mode: An extension to regular mode in which the number of calories burned are also tracked, along with the workout time.
3. Dance Battle: Two players compete in a head-to head dance routine battle. The person with the highest score is the winner. In the rare event there is a tie in the score, the player who passed more moves wins.
4. Challenge Mode: Once all songs (4 or 5) in each difficulty category have at least four stars on each one, a challenge based on the difficulty is unlocked. This mode increases the difficulty of the game by having portions of 4 or 5 songs combined into one, mixing up the dance moves. All challenges must be completed with four stars on each challenge in order to unlock the final challenge.
5. Break it Down: A practice mode that allows beginners to learn more advanced dance moves in a step-by-step process
- The Hip Hop Experience: Is very basic and the same concept as the other two games.
- Choosing a difficulty level.
- Avatars of their own with more than 100 accessories
- Dance Party: Choosing a hip song from a list of forty
- Dance Marathon: Testing your stamina of endless songs.
- Power-Skooling: Perfect the iconic and hip hop moves step by step.
- Dance Modes with high energy challenges multiplayer or singular.
This one didn’t do as well as the other two did. The thing about Hip Hop Dance Experience and Dance Central is that is puts too much effort and graphics into the dancers (who have names by the way) that it distracts from the objective of the game: DANCING!!.
