    ParaParaParadise © 2000 Konami Corp.

    Forget everything you have seen in "Dance Dance Revolution" or "beatmania"!!! ParaParaParadise breaks all boundaries in dancing/rhythm games by putting the player square in the middle of an infrared cage and letting him/her loose on a variety of dancing tunes. Select a song, then go wild trying to break each beam in time to the music. Succeed, and you can continue; fail, and you will have to step down.

    TRIVIA
    Released in August 2000.

    ParaParaParadise is the first Bemani dancing game to introduce the 'hold' instruction.

    While "Dance Dance Revolution" was based on 'nightclub dancing' or 'rave' or similar styles, and "beatmania", "beatmania IIDX", and "beatmania III" were based on a DJ's turntable, ParaParaParadise was based on Japanese 'ParaPara' dancing, which was big in Japan in the 70's.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Expert mode: Go all the way to the right when choosing difficulty (Hard), and hold the Right selection button down for two seconds until it moves past Hard to Expert.
    • Secret Menu: When choosing a song, hold down the Left selection button and the Right selection button for two seconds. A secret menu will pop up. There are five items, each of them a simple On/Off button that is toggled by hitting the Start button:
    1. Hi-Speed - Doubles the speed of the rising arrows, similar to 'Fast' in "Dance Dance Revolution Solo Mix".
    • Mirror - flips the left and right sides (left/up-left, and right/up-right), just like "beatmania", "beatmania IIDX", and "Dance Dance Revolution".
    • Random - Like 'Shuffle' mode in "Dance Dance Revolution" (random arrows). It makes things more difficult! Song parts that have sweeping motions do not seem to be affected by this, though. Also, you cannot have both Shuffle and Mirror on at the same time.
    • Hidden - Same as "Dance Dance Revolution", where the arrows disappear partway up the screen.
    • Sudden - Same as "Dance Dance Revolution" (arrows appear partway up the screen). There's no smooth fade-in of the arrows, though -- they just appear/disappear as they pass the middle of the screen.
