Are you ready to save the universe through the medium of dance? You must first battle wicked space nasties, the Morolians, who have attacked and subdued innocent Earthlings with their dance-inflicting ray guns. In order to break the Morolian's hypnotic grasp, Ulala must mimic the aliens' exact dance moves by keeping the beat with pauses timed to perfection. But the adventure isn't over just yet; Ulala must also face another group of intergalactic terrorists who have designs on world domination. What is Ulala to do but to kick-up some pretty funky dance moves against these evil invaders who are bent on taking over the world. Ulala is the Earth's only hope! [Agetec] - Contains both the original SC5 and the sequel, SC5: Part II, previously available only in Japan. Expand

    From beginning to end, these games ooze style. [Dec 2003, p.54]

    About my only complaint is that it's over too soon -- just an hour, without mistakes...It's unmisssable for anyone who wants to take a space-age vacation from the typical.
  3. The sequel adds in a lot of new unlockable content to help extend replay value, new face offs with vocals, longer button holds, and even instruments, and the overall controls and challenge seem a lot better in this version.
  4. Or you could get them and play them again and again the way you play a favorite album, because your $30 will get you two of the funkiest, most charming grooves you'll ever see in videogame form. [Jan 2004, p.90]

    Both games are short and easy to breeze through (though, believe it or not some sections are a little tricky), but it must be said UGA performed an excellent job of making the sequel far better in every regard.
  6. This is one of the few examples of real SEGA magic this generation. The classic 'Simon Says' gameplay has been only slightly tweaked... to give the game a better feeling of progression and variety. [July 2004, p.108]
  7. Something as simple as trying to discern whether Pudding is motioning right, left, up or down withi her guitar is almost frustrating enough for a good controller toss. [Dec 2003, p.81]
