Dance Freaks is based on the popular Dance Dance Revolution series, but uses a different, non contact control system. Players now use sensors to control the action. Dance Freaks is the The Korean version of Dance Maniax, and contains a different music selection.
Sensors introduce a more fluid feel to the game. As the red or blue notes float up on the screen, the player uses his/her hands or legs to interfere with either the red or blue sensor, by running their hand or leg through the beam between the sensors. This interrupts the sensors for a second and if done at the right time scores a hit or combo point.
The game features eight dance sensors and five lights. Players use hands and feet to utilise the four dance sensors located on upper and lower portion of the cabinet. Allowing performance with entire body.
