Just Dance (video game series)
Just Dance is a motion-based video game. One to four people can play it. Players dance along to a song, and follow the dances on screen as if they were looking in a mirror. Players get more points when they follow the dance moves more closely. Starting in Just Dance 2, players get stars for every 2000 points they get. In each song, there are also moves called Gold Moves. If a player does a Gold Move correctly, they get a lot of points. If they do a Gold Move incorrectly, they do not get any points. At the end of the song, whoever has the most points is the winner.
