Skelanimals Dance Party Review
- Simple, cute Skelanimal art-design (duh!).
- Three difficulty modes with 10 total songs to play and unlock.
- Easy to play tap rhythm gameplay.
- Even on its hardest level the game is too forgiving.
- Not enough 'eye-candy' or feedback to respond to the rhythm.
- Occasional minor audio de-synching.
Skelanimals Dance Party is what it is: A simple grab for fans of the franchise after something new to enjoy and while this may be a simple title it's at least competent enough for fans to enjoy.

It's time to put your T-Pain hat on because Skelanimals Dance Party by Flying Penguin is ready to throw more AutoTune at you than your brain can handle. In this touch rhythm-game fans can now indulge in their love of Skelanimals while watching their favorite zombie creatures bopping away to each of the game's 10 available tracks.
The controls are fairly standard for a tap-based title and players can follow a beat-bar as it slowly works its way clockwise around the screen, tapping, holding or sliding their finger in time with each song. You'll have to play every song in a tier to unlock the next available block of songs and the game's difficulty does gradually increase, with basic slide bars getting new patterns and asynchronous beats becoming more frequent to encounter.
Visually the game is kept simple and in theme with the Skelanimals franchise, with bold dark themes punctuated with the occasional bright color and cute skull-design. The rhythm game itself feels a bit bland, with no sense of progress to reward you for large chains or to clearly indicate that you've failed a pattern. Completing tracks unlocks information for new Skelanimal's and online scores are also available.
Perhaps I'm being a bit mean and I'm just out of touch with music that the 'hip' kids like; and to be fair there is a good variety of songs to enjoy, but Skelanimals Dance Party is really only for fans of the franchise - there's just not enough for the casual rhythm fan to latch on to.
