Can’t get enough of the reality show Dancing with the Stars? You can now play it right on your mobile device.
Indeed, Dancing with the Stars has gone virtual, and the biggest difference is you are not going to play any celebrity or dancer here: you’re going to play you!
If you’re familiar with the show, then you can immediately get the flow of the game. There are rehearsals and “live shows,” in which you compete with other dancers. But there’s a big twist.
First of all, there’s no introduction about the game. As soon as you sign in, you join a dance rehearsal. This can be surprising for those who don’t know much about the show. During the rehearsal, you need to learn a step for a specific kind of dance like hopscotch.
To complete a single step and move on to the next one, you need to finish all the levels. To finish all the levels, you have to play a match-three game. Know how many colored gems you need to clear out for every level and collect the stones! As soon as you complete learning all the steps, you can now proceed to the next dance, such as a jive or a tango.
There will be maximum moves available in every game play. If you get to clear out the level with excess moves left, you can use them to play the next level.
Just like in a real reality TV production, you’ll have a costume designer, a PA, and a social media guru. You need them to help move your character to other levels. For example, certain dresses carry boosters, which you can use to clear all like gems on the grid or remove some of them before you start playing the game.
In the game, there will also be mini-tasks, which you should accomplish in order to collect pink diamonds. These stones can be used to buy more dresses or get into a dress rehearsal and training. You can also earn these diamonds as a random gift from your PA. Free gifts are available every half an hour or less. You can turn on your notification to make sure you don’t miss them. If you want to open more gifts without waiting, use your diamonds.
Once you’ve learned a dance, you can now compete. If you want friends to challenge you to a dance, all you have to do is to invite them via Facebook. By doing so, you can also earn more rewards.
Like in the reality show, your performance, the steps of which are the levels you completed, will be graded. If you’re looking for a higher score, you need to learn more steps, and to do that, you need to be smarter when playing match-3 games. Don’t worry, though, as you can always compete as often as you like during the day.
The game is generous when it comes to diamonds, but in case you run out of them, you can always buy bundles.
Dancing with the Stars is a fun game with a few surprising twists to make it exciting. It’s a cool way to get yourself involved in one of the hottest reality shows without even learning how to dance.
