DDR for Android – Beats, Advanced Rhythm
If you are a fan of Dance Dance Revolution games, you will go absolutely nuts for this one. XDA member Keripo just released version 1.0 beta of this DDR clone. The game, for those not familiar with this, is a synchronization and skill game where you are following the rhythm of a song while trying to hit certain sequences of taps on your screen. In the case of the original DDR, you had to dance (which probably explains all those people jumping around that you saw the last time you passed by an arcade)
The game is very addictive and this particular one is rather smooth also, and will have you playing for a while. Make sure that you leave some feedback for the dev to improve this in future versions.
Beats, Advance Rhythm Game for Android” is a music-based rhythm game where you tap to the beat of your favourite song. If you have ever played StepMania, DJ Max, Beatmania, or Dance Dance Revolution (DDR), you should feel very much at home. Initial 1.0b beta release
Note: You must DOWNLOAD YOUR OWN StepMania songs/stepfiles!
You can find more information in the game thread.
