Stepmania

Stepmania

StepMania is a rhythm video game.

It was originally developed as a simulator of Konami's popular arcade game series Dance Dance Revolution, and has since evolved into an extensible rhythm game engine capable of supporting a wide variety of rhythm-based game types.

The player presses different buttons in time to the music and to note patterns that scroll across the screen.
