The In the Groove wiki last edited by psoplayer on 06/15/14 09:22AM View full history


In the Groove or "ITG" is the first dancing game from the company Roxor. With a very impressive songlist this became a hit in the western "Arcade dance" culture.

ITG plays almost exactly like Konamis popular dancing franchise DDR, 4 different arrows (left, up, down and right) fly up from the bottom of the screen and you have to match these arrows by pressing on the corresponding arrow on the pad with your feet. There are four different difficulty levels, Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert and includes a numeric difficulty rating for each difficulty and song similar to the 1-10 "foot rating" in DDR. The difficulty ratings are comparable between the two franchises, except that ITG has a number of songs rated above 10, with one as high as 13.

For every arrow the player attempts to press, a judgement is given based on how exactly the input was timed. The ratings are, from bad to good:

  • Miss
  • Way off
  • Decent
  • Great
  • Excellent
  • Fantastic

After completing a song a final score is awarded in the form of a percentage, where a 100% rating is nothing but Fantastic.
