    Dance Dance Revolution aka Dancing Stage is a game produced by Konami of japan.
    This dancing simulation game features the "dancer" 
    to step the correct "button" when the song begins to play. 
    This game is very popular in my hometown (Singapore) 
    and some other countries. Note: Playing DDR requires absolute skill and stamina...
    DO NOT go to the arcades to perform unless u are absolutely confindent ^-^ Now on with the FAQ.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------HOW TO PLAY
    [QUICK NOTE 1.] It is recommended if you buy the original Konami dancing mat as 
    it really spoils the fun using a controller.
    Gameplay is basically very simple. See four arrows on the screen?? 
    When the music starts, arrows from the bottom will rise up to the screen. 
    What you are supposed to do is to step the correct arrow when the rising arrow "fits" 
    into the transparent one.
     Do it exactly and you will get a PERFECT. Do it abit below and you will get a GREAT. 
    Combos are broken if you get the rank below GREAT. The top rainbow colour is the dance meter
    get it correct and it will add...get it wrong and it will decrease...
    Game play ends when the dance meter is empty.
    Sounds easy with the controller??? Wait till you try Trip Machine or Paranoia with the Dancing mat :>
