Just when you thought that indie games are all about platformers and rogue-likes, something crazy like Undercoders‘ arcade party game Conga Master comes along.
Rhythm action games are almost common these days, but what if the core concept of simply dancing and forming a line of like-minded people is more important than learning instrument combos or even having some sense of rhythm? That’s what this game is all about, as the goal is to convince club visitors to join your congo ranks while dancing around them. It sounds silly, but it’s also ingenious fun.
As simple as it looks, things get more complicated when pigs and aliens join the party, the former literally stinking and the latter abducting people away from one’s ever increasing line of dancers. Power-ups and different dancer abilities are other ways to prevent the game to become stale, while there are many levels to unlock.
Multiplayer modes involving other congas to disrupt, pigs to pop and a lone conga dancer to win over as well as to make the longest line add to even more chaotic fun, while the various references to arcade games in the level select titles are great to spot, too. Together with Super Treasure Arena, this might be another contender for local multiplayer awesomeness.
