How to Play

1. Difficulty / Song Name
2. Life Gauge - Depending on the game play, it will go up or down. Once it's drained, it's game over. It will not go down when 'SAFETY' is being displayed.
3. Score
4. Melody icon
5. Target icon - There are a few variations on the Melody and Target icon. Detailed explanations will be on the next page.
6. Clear Gauge - Displays the current completion point. 'BORDER': Clear 'G': GREAT 'E': EXCELLENT

Melody icons will move across the screen during the rhythm game. Players must press the appropriate button on the controller when a melody icon overlaps their target icon. By doing so, the Clear Gauge will fill up. Getting the gauge above the completion point (shown as BORDER) will clear the song. If the player makes timing mistakes or enters incorrect commands, the Life Gauge will be reduced. It's game over once this gauge is completely drained.

Target Icon and Timing Bar

When the Timing Bar is straight up, the target icon will overlap with the melody icon. Time it perfectly and press the correct button.

Slide Icon

When a slide icon is displayed, tilt an analog stick in the corresponding direction (both left and right sticks will work).

Challenge Time

On EASY and NORMAL difficulties, there is a challenge mode at the end of the song.

Challenge Time increases the difficulty slightly, but won't affect the life gauge when players mess up. Try it out to get a feel for a higher difficulty.
