By utilizing the train industry as well as buses and subways, it is up to you to manage an efficient transportation system for passengers and freighting companies. Everything you do must be well thought out because you’re out to make a profit.

AIVEvolutionGlobal-01bAs soon as you’ve earned the adequate funds, you have to start making investments. With your money you can buy and sell all types of land and businesses. If you think you’re lucky enough, you may opt to play the stock market. Purchased land can be developed in a variety of ways, such as in the development of offices, apartments, hotels, factories, golf courses, and so on. It is up to you to build the largest financial empire humanly possible.

As the city develops, new businesses will spring up, such as stadiums, high rise office blocks, and ski resorts. You can also build your own businesses, the success of which will depend on the local population, the presence of competing businesses, and even the changes of the seasons, among other factors.

Oha Studio – Dance Dance Revolution is a Dance Dance Revolution game for the Sony PlayStation console. The game features songs from the Japanese children’s’ TV show Oha Studio. There is no arcade counterpart.

Music:
As previously mentioned, the game primarily consists of songs from Oha Suta, but the game also features several Konami Originals, such as “Cutie Chaser (Morning Mix)”, “Brilliant 2U”, “Keep On Movin'” and “Make a Jam!”.

OhaStudioDanceDanceRevolution-01cGameplay:
The core game-play involves the player moving his or her feet to a set pattern, stepping in time to the general rhythm or beat of a song. Arrows are divided by 1/4 notes, 1/8 notes, and so on (with differing color schemes for each), up to about 1/32 notes. During normal game play, arrows scroll upwards from the bottom of the screen and pass over a set of stationary arrows near the top (referred to as the “guide arrows” or “receptors”, officially known as the Step Zone).

When the scrolling arrows overlap the stationary ones, the player must step on the corresponding arrows on the dance platform, and the player is given a judgement for their accuracy (Marvelous, Perfect, Great, Good, Almost (close miss), Boo (complete miss)). Longer green and yellow arrows referred to as “freeze arrows” must be held down for their entire length, either producing a “O.K.” if successful, or a “N.G.” (no good) if not. Dance Dance Revolution X contains songs with Shock Arrows, walls of arrows with lightning effects which must be avoided, which are scored in the same way as Freezes (O.K./N.G.). If they are stepped on, a N.G. is awarded, the life-bar decreases, and the steps become hidden for a short period of time. Continue reading ‘Oha Studio – Dance Dance Revolution, (SLPM-86603)’ »

A conversion of the arcade game from 1999, with 3 difficulties and hidden game modes. There are also PlayStation exclusive game modes, including Survival, Adventure and Remix.

OhBakyuuun-01cWhat secrets lie in the HAUNTED HOUSE!!! I don’t scare easily, but I got to be honest, you wouldn’t catch me going anywhere near that old deserted house on the hill. I’m telling ya, you’d have to be mad to go there.

All the towns folk know the stories, the old legends of the crazy old witch who turns strangers into cats to add to her collection…. And the ghosts that haunt the corridors… and the mad scientist making monsters out of who knows what. It’s enough to turn your hair white with fear! But listen to me. If you are determined to go and explore up there, you’d better be armed.

Loads of holy water should do the trick. Oh, and don’t go in alon–take a friend who knows what they are facing. Even better, up to eight of you can go in guns a-blazing and have a real Ghost-busting party!
