Dancescape is a fast paced skill game. In each level, a series of blocks goes through the screen following one or more paths; the job of the player is to clear all these blocks of the screen before they are destroyed by the circular saws at the end of those paths. In order to do that, the player has to cycle his character through the available dance poses until he finds the one that match the pose on the block, and then he has to tap the block to clear it.
The game is divided in four sections with ten levels each. Each one these sections corresponds to a different ancient temple, each one with distinctive visuals and locations: an underground landscape with rocks and lava, a jungle, a frozen temple and a temple suspended in the air.
Each temple introduces a new type of bonus level that the player can play for extra points and coins.
As the game advances, new kinds of special blocks and powerups are presented to the player. There are basically two kinds of powerups, some of them are available to the player to use them whenever he wants, while the others are activated by clearing blocks with the same pose three or more times in a row.
There is also a store in the game where players can use the virtual currency to buy outfits for his character, power-ups and level unlocks.
