Pump It Up: Exceed is a dance and arcade rhythm game that will make any active person become a first-class and crazy dancer. Pump It Up: Exceed has become a real classic of home dance games. Gameplay will require a special mat with arrows to help register the movements of a person who is passionate about dancing.
The Importance of Dance
The feeling while dancing is unparalleled. The feeling of exceptional freedom has been noticed since antiquity. When musical instruments began to appear, human cultures also developed dance traditions: folk dances for special days, dances before important rituals, dances with the other half. Today, dance is a show, a way to find attention and earnings. In addition, developers create rhythm games and dance games, where players interact with the music.
The gameplay principle of Pump It Up: Exceed is simple, especially for people familiar with Dance Dance Revolution. Pre-created animated and realistic video clips appear on the user's screen. The player hears music from different genres, they are always completely different, but they all have one detail - the rhythm that makes you move. The track list even includes Britney Spears, the American pop singer. Besides Britney there are famous Korean hits, old-school hip-hop in English, techno compositions, Grammy nominees (the iconic world music award). Plug in your mat, choose your mode, and catch the feeling of flow and freedom. The complexity of the game, it's worth noting, is at a high level. The arrows on the screen, which move from bottom to top, tell the player what to do. The dancer must manage to move his feet in time and not get tangled up in them. Pump It Up: Exceed welcomes well-developed coordination, so that people with a crumbling body and a tendency to get upset after defeats. The player will work up quite a sweat:
- Twist your legs.
- Swivel your head to see the arrows
- Tense up your core muscles
A minus worth mentioning is that there is no training mode to master the basic moves and adapt to the high difficulty of the game. There are several modes, if you tackle each one one at a time, confidence is gradually killed, but once the necessary mat skills are gained, you can enjoy yourself. Here are the modes:
- Home - make as many mistakes as you want and stay in the game
- Arcade - you have a few rights to make a mistake, and then the match shuts down
- Sudden death. Mode where there is no single right to make a mistake - no mercy and no second chance
There are five buttons on the mat: four on the diagonal and one in the center.
Pump It Up: Exceed will make your back and leg muscles warm up, have fun hitting the music and get a little happier, healthier. The game also allows two people to play, in case you have two mats, so Pump It Up: Exceed can be considered a party game. We recommend fans of In the Groove and Pump It Up Infinity. One hundred and one tracks will allow you to find music to your liking.
