Me: Lets go play DDR at the mall.
Friend: Oh no, they put In the Groove in the cabinet.
Me: Don't worry, Konami will sue the hell out of them.
A dancing game developed by Roxor (and later partnered with Andamiro) in which players try to step on panels according to a step pattern that appears on screen.
While nearly identical in concept to Konami's Dance Dance Revolution
, so much so that Roxor has been sued for patent and copyright infringement, some conceptual differences can be observed: the use of mines (which reduce one's life if triggered) and hands (a third or fourth arrow needing to be hit by slapping the panel with your hands), a scoring system based on the percentage of points scored over points possible, denser step patterns (some songs have over 800 steps, whereas DDR's densest song has only around 600), and a heavy emphasis on arrow modifiers present in the game's mod-heavy marathon courses
Have you played In the Groove yet? It's like DDR, but a lot harder.
A dance simulation game similat to DDR
, except the songs can be more difficult(up to 13), there are mines, and 3-4 arrows sometimes have to be hit at once.
I'm going to the arcade to play In The Groove.
A good dancing game, which, contrary to popular belief, IS NOT A CRAPPY DDR RIP OFF. While it has the same basic gameplay as Dance Dance Revolution
, it introduces new concepts such as hands (hitting 3 or 4 arrows at a time, with feet and your hands) and mines (avoid stepping on these). Both versions of In the Groove (ITG1 and ITG2) have good song lists.
Just to let you know, I play both ITG and DDR. I'm not a fanboy of either. I like them both the same.
retarded DDR fanboy: itg iz a crapy rip off of ddr!!!!1111!!!one!111two
equally retarded ITG fanboy: wel, in teh groov is mor orijinul and haz betta sonz n stepchartzz!!!!!!!!111one!1111three
Me: You're both retarded. Both games are good. DDR is just as good as In the Groove.
