Description

Simon has been taken to the next level in this arcade dancing game. The game cues you which direction to step. You use a special floor mat to step out the moves in rhythm. The more moves you step out keeping the beat, the better your character does on screen. You get to choose from 28 different songs to dance to. It's possible to dance alone or with a friend.

Trivia

1001 Video Games

Dance Dance Revolution appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

PC version

DDR's PC version was only found in Fry's Electronics and certain other limited outlets. It was poorly distributed and as a result sold poorly. By then variants such as Britney's Dance Beat and StepMania (open-source) had appeared.
