Dance Fabulous was actually the very first dacing game I played. Thanks to the N-Gage emulator. To be candid, the game was everything. From been graphically rich to allowing players use the music they’ve stored on their device to play the game. Its gameplay mainly involves keeping up with the right rhythm while creating unique and excellent dance choreographies with any choosen character. Albeit a great game, it’s sad to say that Dance Fabulous is Passé. But if you are still feeling nostagic, then here some of the dance games we have cherry-picked for you.
1. Just Dance Series
Just Dance is the game to play if you are a casual player who likes parties or love to have fun with friends and family. It is a ‘motion-based’ dancing game that requires players to mimic various “dance moves” by following commands presented on-screen. For one thing, the game awards users for their accuracy and distributed bonus points to those who strike remarkable pose in the gold moves stage.
Just Dance comes “packaged” with a library of 40 songs each with its own choreographies. Nonetheless, if you’d feel that its “music collection” is a bit little, then you can expand the library to over 400+ songs by ‘subscribing’ to Ubisoft’s monthly service called the Just Dance Unlimited. Overall, Just Dance is a great game to pastime with and it’s available on Wii, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

DDR gameplay revolves around stepping on coloured arrows (drawn on a dance pad) as they reach a bar on the top of the screen.
Dance Dance Revolution is a game that wants you to stay active while playing. It is designed for players who want to get up off the couch and exhibit their dancing moves. For those who aren’t comfortable jumping here and there, a standard Wii Remote controller can be used to play the game but it’s no fun. DDR brings a plethora of unobtrusive and energetic songs.
