Changes/Updates

The Extreme difficulty will be new to those who do not own the Christmas Classics expansion. The added songs and grading are more challenging in my opinion. There are only a handful of easy/medium songs.

 

Installation/Integration?

Installation was a breeze; it detected my Heavenly Harmony install and put the songs right in. Unlike the previous expansion pack, you cannot distinguish the new songs from the default songs. The previous expansion put a (CC) in the name, I miss that feature.

Graphics

As far as I can tell, the graphics have not changed. No new backdrops have been added.

Sound

This game is all about music and the mp3 files sound good. There\'s plenty of variety. I like the artists and many of the songs they chose. There are more male than female vocals this time around.

Stability

The game ran fine. I noticed a text jumble up in one of the songs. The font looks blurrier at times but it could be the speed of the lyrics flying by.

Appropriateness

This game is all about singing Christian music, so I can’t fault it for anything here. If you don’t like rock music you may want to consider the Christmas Classics expansion instead.

Final Thoughts

Cloud 9 Games has released a great expansion pack to an already entertaining karaoke game. I highly recommend it to everyone who owns Heavenly Harmony. The music is great and the songs are challenging to sing.

Clicktoy is an interactive game designed for toddlers. It basically turns your computer into a serene meadow and every button on the keyboard will do something unique. Your child can play musical notes, cause the weather/scenery to change, or interact with the animals. The keyboard is protected so your toddler can’t easily exit the game and wreak havoc onto your system.

The Meadow was inspired by Psalm 104 and the environment is very peaceful and serene. This game is entertaining and perfectly suitable for kids of all ages. No appropriateness issues to worry about. You can watch and intermingle with many creatures including fish, bunnies, sheep, birds, gophers, frogs and more. By pushing the keys, your child can cause bunnies to hop and play, fish and gophers to jump, birds to fly, rainbows to appear, wind to blow and the sun to rise and fall.

The game music is catchy and sometimes got stuck in my head. The animal sound effects are good and the background bird chirps, frog ribbits, and farm animal noises make the game sound realistic. The number keys play musical notes, but my kids were more interested in the animal animations.

The animal animations are really well done and truly make this game enjoyable. Many of the animations are unique, for example like the different ways the fish jump out of the water. You can see rabbits run and play or go to sleep, frogs catching flies, gophers playing, butterflies flying and more. You can pan to the left and right to get different views and a whole new set of keystrokes to explore. The environment is incredibly detailed and very colorful.

Stability was a concern I had with the previous builds I have tried. The latest version ran on all of my systems with little hassle. The support was very helpful and they do care about their products and strive to improve them. If you’re running Windows XP, I found this game runs best with SP3 installed.

The interface is easy to use, it just takes a couple of clicks to get the main game going. The click safe feature requires you to hold down the Esc key for a few seconds to trigger the exit icon. Most of the game is keyboard driven.

My children fell in love with this game and often ask to play it. The possibilities are endless. You can have them sit in your lap and make up an interactive story, or you can let their imaginations run wild and laugh at what the animals do. The animal noises and musical notes are fun to play around with too. The asking price of $20 is reasonable and it looks like there are some expansion packs on the way. My children and I look forward to future products from Clicktoy.

Contemporary Hits Pop/Alternative Rock is the first expansion pack designed for the Dance Praise 2 engine. It offers 35 new songs and a new arcade game. It’s nice that the original Dance Praise can play the new tracks from this expansion, though you’ll miss out on the Simon Says game.

How to play

As the music plays, arrows trickle down the screen. As they line up with the arrow grid on the bottom, you have to press the corresponding arrow on the dance pad. As you play on harder difficulty levels, the number of arrows and complexity increases. The arrow grid on the bottom shrinks as well, requiring you to be more accurate.

There’s a new game mode called Simon which offers a new way to play Simon Says. You have to follow the pattern as it gets more complex to remember. One wrong move or lapse in memory ends the game.

Graphics

The expansion pack does not enhance or change the graphics of the Dance Praise 2 engine. The max resolution this game supports is still 1024x768; it looks decent being stretched by my wide screen monitor.

Sound

The music selection is great; there’s a wide variety of music styles. The sound quality is good and the announcer isn’t annoying, so that’s a plus. The Simon games have various themed sound effects which adds a nice touch.

Stability

I have not run into any problems or glitches playing this game. If you want to play Dance Praise 1 songs/expansions it will prompt you for the CD which is a bit annoying.

Appropriateness

This is a game that has God honoring songs; I find no fault here. It’s a great game for families, churches and youth groups.

Final Thoughts

This expansion adds over thirty songs to your collection. There’s a wide variety of music genres and there’s something to please everyone. The asking price of $24.99 is fair. The Simon game is a nice throw in but I don’t see myself playing it much. The dance steps weren’t super challenging so hardcore DDR players may be disappointed. This is a good addition for the casual player who owns either Dance Praise 1 or 2.

Top Hits is the second expansion pack designed for the Dance Praise 2 engine. It offers 35 new songs and a new arcade game. It’s nice that the original Dance Praise can play the new tracks from this expansion, though you’ll miss out on the Rock ‘n Block game.

How to play

As the music plays, arrows trickle down the screen. As they line up with the arrow grid on the bottom, you have to press the corresponding arrow on the dance pad. As you play on harder difficulty levels, the number of arrows and complexity increases. The arrow grid on the bottom shrinks as well, requiring you to be more accurate.

There’s a new game mode called Rock ‘n Block, in this game you have to use the dance pad to activate shields surrounding your base. You have to protect your base from asteroids. There is some protection but a direct hit to the base will end your game.

Sound

The music selection is great; there’s a wide variety of music styles. The sound quality is good and the announcer isn’t annoying, so that’s a plus. Rock n’ Block didn’t have earth shattering sound effects, it just played music from the game in the background.

Stability

I have not run into any problems or glitches playing this game. If you want to play Dance Praise 1 songs/expansions it will prompt you for the CD which is a bit annoying.

Appropriateness

This is a game that has God honoring songs; I find no fault here. It’s a great game for families, churches and youth groups.

Final Thoughts


This expansion adds over thirty songs to your collection. The song selection is great and there are many good artists here. There’s a wide variety of music genres and there’s something to please everyone. The asking price of $24.99 is fair. The Rock ‘n Block game is probably my least favorite of the arcade add-ins. The dance steps weren’t super challenging so hardcore DDR players may be disappointed. This is a good addition for the casual player who owns either Dance Praise 1 or 2.

Digital Praise has re-written their Dance Praise engine from the ground up and it’s a vast improvement. The interface is now 3D and has a much smoother look and feel to it. If you have the original Dance Praise, you can play all of the previous songs and expansion packs. Also, it’s nice that the original Dance Praise can play the new tracks from Dance Praise 2 as well. You can now have up to four people playing provided that you have enough USB ports.

How to play

As the music plays arrows trickle down the screen. As they line up with the arrow grid on the bottom you have to press the corresponding arrow on the dance pad. As you play on harder difficulty levels, the number of arrows and combo moves increases. The arrow grid on the bottom shrinks as well, requiring you to be more accurate.

There’s a new game mode called Dance-Tris which offers a new way to play Tetris. Just like Tetris, various shaped blocks come down and you have to rotate and move the pieces with your dance pad. Your goal is to align the blocks to fit together without leaving spaces. As you get rows covered, they will disappear. Leveling up occurs when you clear multiple rows, and the difficulty increases by having the blocks come down faster.

So what’s new in Dance Praise 2?


Other than the new look and backgrounds, Dance Praise 2 comes bundled with fifty two songs. Ten of the songs are “locked”; you can unlock them by playing songs at their hardest difficulty. You can choose between choreographed and computer generated steps; the computer generated steps will be different every time you play a song. DP2 has player profiles which track high scores and work out mode progress. There’s also a new difficulty level called “super easy” which may help my grandma out.

What songs are there?

Graphics

I love the new interface and the animated 3D backgrounds look cool. The option to display the song lyrics is nice but I honestly don’t pay attention since my focus is on the arrows. However, I couldn’t help but notice the cheesy dancer in the box which fortunately can be disabled. The max resolution this game supports is 1024x768; it looks decent being stretched by my wide screen monitor.

Sound

The music selection is great; there’s a wide variety of music styles. The sound quality is good and the announcer isn’t annoying, so that’s a plus.

Stability

I have not run into any problems or glitches playing this game. If you want to play Dance Praise 1 songs/expansions it will prompt you for the CD which is a bit annoying.

Appropriateness

This is a game that has God honoring songs; I find no fault here. It’s a great game for families, churches and youth groups.

Final Thoughts

The first thought that comes to my mind is that I wish they did this in the first place. Granted the original Dance Praise will run better on older systems, but it’s definitely rough around the edges compared to DP2. Hardcore DDRers will be disappointed by how easy this game is, even at the hardest difficulty. Now they made a super-easy mode, how about super hard? This is a great game for beginners, kids and family. The four player support is great and the Tetris mode is fun to play too. I recommend this game for the casual Dance Dance Revolution player, or those who enjoy DDR and popular Christian music.

Final Score

Gameplay: 17/20
