Bump and Bop to Pop

There is no dance pad involved, all you need is the Wiimote. Everything is done with timing. It doesn't even matter if you don't follow the actions on the screen, as long as you do some sort of movement at the right time with the Wiimote. There really is not challenge, it's just for pure silly fun. You can sit on the couch and wave the Wiimote on the beat or jump around like a wild animal.

You can play with your friends in team-up or dance off against them in versus. All the songs are available right off the bat, so you don't have to play for hours to unlock everything. However, there are some outfits and other things to unlock, which gives you reason to keep playing.
The game is really friendly to new and young players, as there is no penalty for making mistakes. However, for the older crowd, this can be translated as easy and unchallenging.
