About the Game



DanceWall Remix is an all new gaming experience, designed for natural gesture recognition with web camera, and does not require the use of any physical controllers to play. No controls, no barriers to fun. Just move your body in front of the camera to control the gameplay. DanceWall Remix is an experience enjoyed by anyone, young and old, that will have players off the couch and moving throughout the room to control all the in-game action.

In DanceWall Remix, players make physical body poses that transform their onscreen avatars to fit through approaching silhouette shapes on screen. The goal is to earn the highest score by making the best possible fit with these onscreen silhouettes, picking up bonuses, and avoiding obstacles. The physical gameplay is immediately intuitive and does not require any previous experience with video games to quickly enjoy the fun.

DanceWall Remix is divided into three themes, Disco, Classic, and Retro. Each theme has a distinct look and style of play based on the music. Retro is an 8Bit inspired synthetic world of Electronic music. Classic is a “Bubblegum-Pop” world where everything is soft and cute, and Disco is thematic of a 70’s nightclub.

Each level supports three modes of play: single player, 2 player cooperative and 2 player versus.

Cool Concept and a Fair Price!

A simple posing at certain times, while grabbing some items as you zoom through a stage, and slapping/attacking enemies that block your view kind of game geared toward a younger audience. The twelve songs seem pretty decent and are in the "Pop" (Popular) realm of music for the most part. The content seems a little sparse to me, but for the price (less than a music CD with 12 songs) it’s at a good price point. I recommend it if this is the type of game you’re looking for! You'll see lots of teddy bears, toy trains, and other "kid" things while you play. Babysitters and busy parents rejoice.

I will say that it still needs some work though. For example, the menu is sometimes too "floaty" when trying to select something on screen with your body. I can be leaning to one side and shaking my hands in one direction and it still may not know which way I'm trying to get the cursor to move. And then sometimes it just seems to work perfectly. Very strange. Luckily, you can use the mouse. This seems like the best option for stage selection.

Another current flaw (if you are alone) is selecting the next song after you complete one. You may need to move the mouse, but then it recognizes that there is no player there, and pauses the game. You have to then "click" or hand gesture (which is finicky right now for me) to get it to resume. A lot of other games of this genre just have you move into a “pose” projected on the screen to resume. That’s where the developer needs to make an improvement.

In it's current state, it is an 7.5 out of 10, and a good buy it you are interested in these types of games and have someone to enjoy the game with. Remind the kids that the gestures have to be big for the best reading from the PC camera, and you should have a few hours of enjoyment and mild exercise ready to go.


A side note: I tried running this on an 5 year old PC with an Intel Video Card onboard, and it had some staggering, but didn't make it up playable.

This is a camera based dance game with 12 songs which all show lots of rainbows and toys. It's good for kids around ages 3-13.

The motion detection worked perfectly, the game is fun and delivers what it promises at a fair price. I really hope they sell a zillion copies and make more of this kind of game!
