Holodance ★★★★★ Review by Jenna Jones Do you love dancing? I do! I want to tell you about an amazing video game which is lots of fun, helps you to become stronger and teaches you about problems with the environment! What is it? It’s called Holodance and it’s a virtual reality game – you have to wear a special gadget on your head so that you can ‘see’ the game and play. How do you play it? You can play this game in different ways. One way is just to move your body. Put the gadget on your head. Then the music starts and you have to move your body in different ways. For example, you might see balls flying around very fast. When they come near you, you must catch them. It’s better than dancing. It’s great exercise! Another way to play the game is in a story. You fly in the sky with amazing creatures called dragons! The planet has become very dirty – the creatures want you to make it clean again. In the story, there are problems on the ground, in the air and under the water. Can you finish the game and save Earth? Why do I love it? It’s like a music video – and you are in it! If you only want to dance, play it without the story. If you want to fly with the creatures and learn something too, play it with the story. Both ways are great! 76
