Beat Blade: Dash Dance might be a lot like some other, predominantly VR games out there, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a load of fun. It’s also super tricky, requiring some fiendish hand-eye coordination if you want to get the best scores.
That’s not all you’re going to need though – there are hints, tips and tricks that are going to really help you out. Hints, tips and tricks like the ones we’ve written in this guide. Keep reading and you’re going to be nailing every song with ease.
If you’ve played Beat Blade and you’d like to share your own helpful suggestions, then make sure you do just that in the comments section at the bottom of this article. After all, sharing is an awesome thing to do. Before that though, here’s our guide to nailing every song in Beat Blade.
Play With The Sound On
You know those games that tell you to play with your headphones in? Well Beat Blade is one of them, and it really means it. Being able to hear the music is key to getting the best scores. That’s because you’ll be moving in time to the beat.
Sure you can play without the sound on, but there are a couple of reasons why you shouldn’t. For starters, it’s just not as much fun. And second, you’ll find your finger flowing over the screen in a much more precise fashion if you’re in tune to the, well, tune.
Hit Every Note
This one’s easier said than done, but the best scores require you to hit every single note. That means you’re often going to have to play songs multiple times in order to nail that perfect run.
Make sure you’re concentrating when you play, and find a comfortable finger position that’s going to help you hit every note. You might find it easiest to use a thumb, or to hold your phone in one hand and move with a digit from your other. Experiment and find out what works best for you.
You Can Miss Blank Notes
You’ll sometimes see notes that have a white circle that isn’t filled in. These are optional notes. They’ll pop up at the end of a run, or sometimes during the middle eight of longer songs. You don’t need to hit all of these to get a perfect combo.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try – mashing them will get you loads more points after all – but missing them isn’t going to count against your perfect run. Try and hit as many as you can, but don’t fret too much if you miss any.
Pick The Right Song
Don’t jump straight into the more difficult tunes, you’re not going to do great that way. Instead, try and work your way through the difficulty levels, moving from easy to medium and so on. That way you’re less likely to get frustrated by the tougher challenges.
Use the easier levels to get into the flow of the game, and then move up to the tougher challenges when you’ve got your eye and your ear in. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Oh, and make sure you’re having fun too, otherwise what’s the point?
