GAME DETAILS

  • 5 music genres: Rock, Country, Marching Band, Hip Hop and Ranchero
  • 11 unique style bands
  • 30 licensed tracks (each in 5 genres totaling 150 songs)

In each game, a song will be played in one genre for about 10 to 15 seconds and then another, flipping back and forth. Points are earned by beat-matching, and successive matches will automatically launch weapons such as smoke bombs, land mines and flip outs. The more points earned, the more the music will be played in the player’s genre.
