Roxor Games has announced the release of the Macintosh and Windows version of In the Groove, its dance action game that is already available in arcades and for the Sony PlayStation 2. The game costs $39.99.
In the Groove is an action game designed to work with a USB-based dance pad (some retailers stock bundles that combine the game with a pad for an additional charge). As with Dance Dance Revolution and other games in the same genre, in In the Groove, you must step on the dance pad in time with what’s happening on the screen in order to gain points.
in the Groove features more than 80 songs, and more than 100 unlockable items, including songs, courses, modifiers and step charts. Five levels of play range from novice to expert.
What’s more, In the Groove features seven modes of play — Dance, Battle (against another person or the computer), Marathon (a non-stop play mode), Tutorial, Fitness (which measures your calorie burn), Training and Editor.
Several songs are exclusive to the Mac and PC version, and a full step editor is also included. That means you can import and export content using USB drives to use with In the Groove in arcades.
The game features high-resolution graphics with support for widescreen displays and English, Spanish, French, German and Italian localization.
System requirements call for a G4 or better (Intel Macs included), Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, 256MB RAM, 700MB hard disk space, CD-ROM drive and graphics system with at least 32MB VRAM.
