Copping a faux "engrish" translation-from-Japanese, this game puts the player in the dancing shoes of Data East's emblematic circus stongman Jinborov Karnovski, aka Karnov. Apparently in the days since he retrieved the lost treasure of Babylon he's given up the fire-breathing and taken to shaking his groove thang and so the player sways and gyrates Karnov in a brief two-level rhythm game among and against various surreal opponents from his platforming days of yesteryear, all in the interest of saving the denizens of BIG CITY, USA.

The game will present the player with musical sequences of directions, issued rhythmically, to be reproduced by the player using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Successfully following 80% or more of a sequence's indicated directions will increase Karnov's power bar by one, which must be achieved six times in a level in order to pass it; if the level's song ends with fewer than six sequences satisfied, Karnov dies a messy death. Rhythm sequences are interspersed with bizarre non-interactive dance party sequences.

Bonuses can be achieved by multiply tapping a direction indicated, in time, before moving on to the next direction, but too many wrong keys can result in Karnov getting stage fright and failing to dance at all.
