Overview

Rhythm Party (Boom Boom Dance in Japan) is a rhythm game published by Konami and developed by the DanceMasters (Dance Evolution in Japan and Europe) team that allows players to have more freedom in their routines. A combo system, as well as implementing a simpler system for point scoring i.e. timed circles to place body parts enables the player to create their own dance for each song.

Gameplay

Circles appear in the vicinity of the dance area, and players must put a body part inside the circle in time with the music. Players gain bonuses if they do various tricks such as: kicks, jumps, and spins. For each song the player also gets to choose one of five different filters which will give the players visual representation a distinct look. At the end of each song the player is graded on their performance with score raging from C to AAA. There are 4 different difficulties: Light, Standard, Extreme and Master with the last one being a free DLC.
