Britney's Dance Beat is a one or two player music video game featuring songs and video appearances by Britney Spears. The story is that players must pass "auditions" to tour as Spears's dancers.

Gameplay involves pressing buttons in time with music. Symbols for buttons are arranged in a circle, resembling a clock dial. A pointer sweeps around the dial, indicating when to press each button.

The game contains five songs: "...Baby One More Time", "Oops!... I Did It Again", "Stronger", "Overprotected" and "I'm a Slave 4 U". Successful play is rewarded with "backstage passes" which unlocks features such as backstage video footage of Britney.

There's also a video vault. When you complete auditions you get backstage passes to unlock 360 immersive videos and behind the scenes footage.

The game also includes various remixes during behind the scenes footage, menus, and credits. It also has photoshoots during credits.

Versions of the game were released for Game Boy Advance on March 25, 2002, PlayStation 2 on May 8, 2002, and PC on June 19, 2002.

Reviews of the game range from average to mixed to negative. GameRankings and Metacritic gave it a score of 57.75% and 53 out of 100 for the GBA version,[10][13] 63.29% and 63 out of 100 for the PS2 version,[9][12] and 18% and 24 out of 100 for the PC version.[11][14]

Entertainment Weekly gave the PS2 version a B+ and stated that "the game is just cheesy enough to make you stop, look, and bust out dancing."[33] The Cincinnati Enquirer gave it a positive review and said of the game, "There's nothing groundbreaking about it, but in some ways, that's what keeps the game fun."[35] However, Maxim gave the same console version a score of four out of ten and called it "a mindless version of 'Simon Says' to the masterful beats of 'Oops!... I Did It Again.'"[34]

Cell phone game[edit]

A cell phone game created by Qplaze-RME and Sony BMG titled "Adventures of Britney Spears" was announced in December 2005 but was never released. Images and video footage of the game were released along with the game's press release.

Britney For Candie's Collection[edit]

In March 2009, Britney was announced as the new face of Candie's, a clothing brand marketed for pre-teens and teenagers.[36] After being the face of the line for two years, it was announced that Spears would design a limited edition collection for Candie's which would be unveiled by mid year.[37] It premiered on July 1, 2010 with prices ranging from $14 to $78.[38] In an interview with InStyle Magazine's website, Spears announced a few more pieces would be sold in September and October and that she would love to design for them again [39]
