EZ2Dancer is an arcade rhythm video game made by the Korean company Amuseworld.

EZ2Dancer is a game for one or two players, played by stepping and waving in time with music. Each player has three foot panels (left, right, and back) and two hand sensors. Rising circles and arrows show which actions are required.

Unlike many dance simulation games, the arrows that the player needs to step on are not limited to a small area; EZ2Dancer has a circular pad of pressure sensors around the metal center circle, which is divided into 3 parts (120 degrees), so the player is not limited to stepping certain spots on the stage.

Play modes

*Normal: Normal gameplay mode for beginners and performers. For each player, there are three directional arrows (top left, top right, bottom) and two sensors (left, right).
*Hard: The same as normal, except with higher difficulty level.
*Club: The typical "double mode" - uses 6 step arrows and 4 sensors.
*Real: Uses three arrows like normal mode, but the sensor bar is separated into two areas: top and bottom; thus, the player has four sensors (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right) to play with.

EZ2Dancer 1st Move

Released September 2000 in Korea and early 2001 in England. Notable songs include "Rule of Game" by Goofy, "Wah" by Lee Jung Hyun, "First Love" by CLON, "Pierrot" by Lee Hyun Do and D.Bace, "Make Love" by NRG, "Vision" by Yoo Seung Jun, "Precious Love" by Park Ji Yoon and Southwest Cadillac - An in-house remixed track from EZ2DJ, which is considered to be one of the most popular tunes on EZ2Dancer.

EZ2Dancer 2nd Move

Released January 2001 in Korea and sometime during summer (May?) 2001 in England.Added new in-house songs "Appeal (Acid Pop)" from EZ2DJ and various K-Pop tunes.

EZ2Dancer UK Move

Released in May 2002 in England. Unlicensed songs included "Dancing Queen" by ABBA, "Uncle John from Jamaica" by Vengaboys and "Reach" by S Club 7. The backgrounds from previous Korean mixes were kept. It is also considered to be musically the weakest game in the franchise.

EZ2Dancer UK Move Special Edition

Released April 2003 in England. What is special about this mix is that after the backlash of complaints about the UK Move's debatably poor selection of songs from the dancegame community, David Swei, the European marketing director of Amuseworld, stepped in. Vykkye Nye, who worked as a PR girl for Amuseworld in the UK, used an online poll asking the (now defunct) Dancegames.com's site members to submit their favourite songs for use on the New UK Move. K-Pop was suggested but David was adamant that they use only English songs for the new mix. However "Get Ready" By Perry & YG Family made it in as despite the song being in Korean, it uses an English chorus. The final songs were selected and the mix was released.

EZ2Dancer SuperChina

Amuseworld released EZ2Dancer SuperChina in 2004 as its Chinese release [aside from EZ2Dancer UKMove, which China also received] . It has the songs from EZ2Dancer 2ndMove plus new songs from Mandarin-pop artists including Jolin Tsai, Leon Lai, and Kelly Chen. It also has a few new songs from Korean artistes; namely, from Yoo Seung Jun, S#arp, Jon Jun Hyon, and Clon.

uperChina Play modes

*Normal: Normal gameplay mode for beginners and performers. For each player, there are three directional arrows (top left, top right, bottom) and two sensors (left, right).
*Hard: The same as normal, except with a higher difficulty level.
*Club: The typical "double mode" - uses 6 step arrows and 4 sensors.
*Real: Uses three arrows like normal mode, but the sensor bar is separated into two areas: top and bottom; thus, the player has four sensors (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right) to play with.

SuperChina's Real Mode is different from 2ndMove as 2ndMove uses courses. A set of songs is played and needs to be accomplished to complete the mission.

Real Mode in SuperChina is a normal mode where you need to finish the song to proceed with the next stage.

SuperChina is said to be much more difficult in Real Mode as it uses most of the sensors and the step arrows at the same time. Numerous jumps were also observed on RealMode.

uperChina Unlock Modes

*Speed Change: before choosing the song, hover bottom left twice and select from normal speed (1x), 2x, and 4x

Others

Followers of EZ2Dancer have long awaited the release of the next version, as UK Move Special Edition and SuperChina were the last known releases. AmuseWorld have been focused on their EZ2DJ series, however on the 10th July 2007 Konami won a patent infringement suit claiming that EZ2DJ was too similar to Beatmania. This has effectively made Amuseworld bankrupt. Although EZ2Dancer 3rd Mix was available to buy on channelbeat.com in late 2005, this turned out to be a spelling error.
