PyDance 1.1.0


PyDance 1.1.0 for Mandriva Linux 2010.0 & 2009.1

PyDance is fun dancing game for experience asian dance beat! Showing friends your hot move with big score!





en18 Highly configurable, colorful animated arrow motion, limitless numbers of dance steps, 1 or 2 players, professionally written
music, laughter provoking sound effects, and yes, even graphical transitions.

Have you ever gone to an arcade and seen some crazy girl busting moves on some sort of metal panel of sorts, or a guy making a fool of himself trying to dance without watching the screen? Well, that game is Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR for short, which has been a hit in Asian countries for awhile and is finally getting popular in Europe and North America.
So, what you do is watch the screen as these colored arrows move up the screen. As soon as they cover up stationary ones, you press them on a dance pad with your feet. It doesn't matter if you leave your foot down after you press it, it doesn't matter if you hit the correct arrow and the wrong arrow at the same time if you happened to jump a little, the only thing that matters is hitting the proper arrow at the proper time. At the end of the song, you get a grade telling you how close to the beat you were.

Sounds fun and easy, right? Well, now that you're a pro, download pydance and you can play it on your computer instead! If you don't have a dance pad, try it with the keyboard or with a gamepad! You can write dance steps to songs on your computer to dance to, use two mats and see whether you or your friend is a better dancer, or just play a game that's fun, challenging, has good music, and get some exercise.


it PyDance, prima pyDDR, è un gioco di ballo scritto in Python che emula il famoso gioco asiatico Dance Dance Revolution.

Le frecce che scorrono sullo schermo vi indicano dove e quando dovete mettere il piede, simulando quindi un balletto. Potete usare il programma direttamente con la tastiera o, in maniera più divertente, con molti dei tappeti da ballo in vendita per PSX o PS2 usando semplicemente un adattatore. Potete trovare maggiori informazioni nelle FAQ.

Il programma oltre ad utilizzare il proprio formato .dance è in grado anche di leggere anche i formati DWI, SM e KSF. Molte anche le modalità di gioco per trasformare ogni giocatore in un vero ballerino o per rimettervi in forma ;)
