StepMania5.0.12 / 5.1.0 Alpha 3 Description:
Most of the time, video games are depicted as being the preferred method of entertainment for lazy people, which is not entirely inaccurate when you think about it. However, the statement does not stand true in every case because there are plenty of games that require physical movement, not to mention those that give your brain a full workout as well. Hence, whether itís thanks to Kinect or Wii, not all gamers are stuck on a couch. StepMania is a game that practically forces you to get up and perform a vigorous workout, albeit in the form of a dance. Even so, it takes quite a bit of effort to keep up with todayís fast-paced electronic beats, which means that you should end up a bit sweaty by the time the song is over. In addition, you have the possibility to enjoy a variety of tunes, all of which should pose a decent challenge on the higher difficulty levels. In case you are not familiar with the genre, StepMania is very similar to Konamiís Dance Dance Revolution. Although that one was developed in order to be enjoyed on arcade machines which had sensitive boards to perform the necessary steps on, the same concept can function on a PC as well, especially since you can easily hook up a similar board and have fun without leaving the room.
