Minecraft User Creates Dance Dance Revolution Style Rhythm Game


People can create all kinds of things in Minecraft, and with some Redstone ingenuity, it’s possible to create a rhythm game, as this YouTuber demonstrates.

Although music is an important accompaniment to the game, often used to set the mood, some titles feature soundtracks as a core mechanic. These rhythm games have been on the scene for years now, and even the likes of the PlayStation classic PaRappa the rapper have made a return to PS5. With that in mind, someone on YouTube managed to take Minecraft and, using a complicated redstone circuit, essentially created his own version of dance dance revolution.


As reported by PCGamesN, YouTuber mattbatwings took some ideas from his community and built them into Minecraft. One of those things was a random number generator. But the most interesting project was the suggestion of a rhythm-based game. While Mattbatwings says there are several different types to choose from, they have chosen DDR as inspiration for their version, seeking to incorporate the musical franchise’s use of moving arrows as a key gameplay aspect. The construction begins with the display in which lit arrows move up the table. Then came the placement of the buttons that had to correspond to each arrow.

While aspects of the building have been cut, it can be seen in the video that it is a pretty crazy Minecraft redstone gear. Eventually, after deciding that they weren’t too happy with the current setup, the YouTuber decides to take the same idea and scale it down. The result is a well-crafted, albeit obviously blocky, rendition of the dance dance revolution format. The only thing missing was the music. Granted, that’s a big part of rhythm games, but mattbatwings says they don’t have a good handle on using the game’s notepads. The best they could do was show a clip of them playing the game and to have music placed over it.

There are so many creative people doing amazing and interesting things in the game. Recently, YouTuber SystemZee decided to add sharks and a horrifying monster to the oceans of Minecraft. There have also been cases where people have created their own version of Tetrisand one person managed to create their own texture pack entirely through AI.

With the Minecraft Legends spin-off currently in development, it’s clear that the developer and the fan base still have plenty of ideas for this IP. Even after more than ten years, there is still so much to discover, and it will be interesting to see what projects people can come up with next.

Minecraft is available on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
