GAMEPLAY

What is the gameplay like?

πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Players will be led to evolve through 4 major stages ;

1) Collect Premium moves or create their own moves.
2) Create a 16-second choreography by selecting from a music catalog and assembling animations in the editor.
3) Practice a choreography using the precision mini-game "DANCE".
4) Participate in duels to improve their ranking and unlock new achievements.

How to get the best score?

πŸ‘‡πŸ½

The choreography created by the player will generate unique points that will need to be played either individually for practice or during duels. The goal is to have the highest score (meaning the dance sequence is mastered).

Depending on their timing, the player collects more or fewer points with each DANCE input:
Less than 30%: 0 pts
‍
Between 30% and 60%: 50 pts
‍
Between 60% and 90%: 100 pts
‍
Greater than 90%: 300 pts

Next Dancer How to perform circle

Depending on its accuracy, an DANCE input earns 0 (missed), 1 (50), 2 (100), or 3 points (300) of technical score.

For each track, a perfect technical score is calculated:
Number of OSU inputs * 3

‍
Once the performance is completed, the player's score is compared to the perfect technical score:

Technical Score Player / Perfect Technical Score = PerformanceRatio

The result will be a ratio between 0 and 1.The technical score is represented by an appreciation:

'Bad': Performance ratio < 0.25
'Quite Good': Performance ratio < 0.5
'Good': Performance ratio < 0.75
'Great': Performance ratio < 0.9
'Perfect': Performance ratio ≀ 1
