Sound Voltex (stylized as SOUND VOLTEX) is a series of music games by KONAMI. It was tested on various cities in Japan starting on August 26, 2011 until September 19, 2011.[1] It was then released on January 18, 2012.

SOUND VOLTEX in General[edit]

SOUND VOLTEX consists of two different parts that relate to each other; SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH and SOUND VOLTEX FLOOR. SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH is the main game, while SOUND VOLTEX FLOOR is a system where game content is created by Japanese artists and musicians. Content chosen from SOUND VOLTEX FLOOR will be inserted into SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH to be available in the game.

Gameplay[edit]

The player is required to use various buttons to hit the notes appearing on the screen. There are six vertical columns on the screen with notes coming towards the Critical Line at the bottom, and the aim is to hit the notes when they are on the Critical Line. There are six buttons and two knobs to the left and right of the buttons. The two Long Buttons are used to hit long notes, while the four Short Buttons are used to hit individual notes. The leftmost and rightmost column are used for Analog Device. The player needs to turn the knobs clockwise or counter-clockwise according to the path shown on the screen. After a note is hit, a judgement is then received, from the highest to the lowest: CRITICAL, NEAR, and ERROR. While CRITICAL increases the gauge, ERROR depletes it. The player passes the stage when the gauge reaches the Clear Zone. The grade is then shown, determined from the player's performance.

Unlocks[edit]

Like all of the BEMANI games, SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH also have their own unlocks. SOUND VOLTEX STATION is the main unlocking system in the game. Each time players play SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH, they will receive a certain amount of Blocks and Packets. Blocks are required to unlock music and Packets are used to unlock Appeal Cards, which is basically an Avatar. One of the unlocking methods is the APPEND TRAVEL event, where players clear songs from jubeat, save the results and gameplays in an e-Amusement card and play other BEMANI games with the card inserted. APPEND TRAVEL has the song candii unlocked, as well as Appeal Cards.

Music[edit]

SOUND VOLTEX's music is mainly produced by independent artists; mostly VOCALOID producers. Song jackets are also created by independent artists, and some songs may have different jackets for different difficulties, like EZ2DJ.
