I never knew they could make a fun game set around break dancing, For the first few hours, I thought they hadn’t as I just mashed buttons and got good ranks. I decided to try and concentrate and take in what I was asked to do, This opened the game up to a new level. I learned all about flowing my moves and matching the beat. I really appreciated the art style and how they dared to take a risk and it turned out so well. A surprising game with a lot of depth all it asks of you is that you have flow!
