Rhythm arcade game: Nurture your inner DJ with the EZDJj 3rd Trax

3rd_trax.jpg

I've always liked rhythm style video games ever since I first saw PaRappa the Rapper for the Sony Play Station way back in 1998. Even though I totally suck at them, I really admire the fact that they compensate for simple game play with great art direction and innovative game controllers.

Wandering around an arcade in Seoul, I saw the EZ2DJ 3rd Trax game, the third version in a line of six by the South Korean gaming company Amuseworld. Players use a turn-table, foot paddle and effector buttons to match the rhythm patterns on the screen. Like many games of this kind, inaccurate timing reduces your "life" gauge. You must keep your gauge from reaching zero for the duration of the song in order to continue to pass further in the game.

Amuseworld plans to release a 7th version later this year.

chef:

This looks and sounds like a direct clone of Konami's Beatmania games, except for the footpedal...
