If you've watched breakdancing, and wanted to try it but know your body won't stand it, this program could be the answer to your prayers.

It consists of four different games and a final Grand Loop which combines all the games in one competition.

In the first one you take part in a one-to-one dance contest. You use the joystick to repeat your opponent's moves. Very tricky.

The second is similar to the first except that you're battling against increasing numbers of dancers who edge you towards a river.

The third is different. This time you must watch a dance sequence and decide in which order the still pictures should be to reproduce the routine. It can be difficult to decide the correct order and you're working against the clock. In the final game you choreograph a routine using the menu of movements provided.

Even though the graphics and sound were up to Epyx's high standard, this game became boring after a while.
