A group of Space Dancers are dancing together, and the player must dance in time with the others. They follow the directions of the other dancers and Space Gramps by pressing the corresponding button as the partners signal what to do. The three moves in this game are:

  • Pose (かたむく?, Katamuku): A voice says "And Pose!" ("Turn Right!"?), where the dancers raise their left hand on "And", then tilt to the side on "Pose!"
  • Squat (スクワット?, Sukuwatto): A voice says "Let's Sit Down!", where the dancers stand up on "Let's", then squat on "Down!"
  • Punch (パンチ?, Panchi): A voice says "Pu-Pu-Pu-Punch!", where the dancers motion with their open palms on the first three syllables, and punch on the last one.


  • Ⓐ/Tap: Punch
  • ✚/Tap: Pose (right)/squat (down)

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!?: The player follows along with the others.
  • Early!/Late!?: The player follows out of sync, making a "tick" sound. Space Gramps raises an eyebrow.
  • Miss...?: The other dancers collide with the player as they make their move. Space Gramps looks embarrassed.

Space Dance 2P (スペースダンス 2P?, Space Dance 2P) is the 1st Rhythm Game of Stage 3 (9th overall) in the 2P mode of Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade).

The arrange version, Cosmo Dance 2P, appears in Stage 4 of the 2P mode of Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade).

The game plays the same as the 1P version, except the first player controls the second dancer, and the second player controls the fourth dancer. Oddly enough, P1 cannot hit the third dancer in line.

  1. "最初に任天堂サイドでたたき台をつくったんですね。自前で作詞・作曲をして、歌はデザイナーの女の子に頼んで、それをつんく♂さんに聴いていただいたんです。すると、つんく♂さんから「歌ってる人、うまいねえ」とほめていただいたので、「そのまま使われるかも?」って、淡い期待をいだいたのですが、そのあと時東ぁあみさんに歌っていただくことになって…。たたき台だったとはいえ、すごく気合いを入れてつくったんですけどね(笑)。ちなかみに、デザイナーの女の子は、「スペースダンス」の「Turn Right」や「告白マシーン」の声も担当しています。" (First, Nintendo created the basis for the song. I wrote the lyrics and music myself, asked a designer girl to sing the song, and had Tsunku♂ listen to it. Then, Tsunku♂ complimented me on my song, saying, "The singer is good". I had faint hopes that they might use the song as it was, but then, after that, Ami Tokito sang it for us. Even though it was just a draft, I put a lot of energy into it (laughs). The designer girl also voices Space Dance's "Turn Right" and "Kokuhaku Machine".) ~ Masami Yone, Rhythm Tengoku Zen Kyoku-shu STAFF'S VOICE
