Dance Station 3DDX, usually abbreviated to 3DDX, is a rhythm video game developed by NGG (Next Generation Games) Entertainment, a Korean game producer company established in May 2000. Players of this game use their feet to step on arrows as well as their hands, arms or legs to activate infrared sensors around the stage. This title has only been released in arcade so far.


Two players dance to a song. The goal is to step on the corresponding arrow on the dance pad as the colored arrows reach the top of the screen.

The 3DDX dance machine is composed by a two side pad connected to the computer hardware and a screen above the main cabinet. Each side of the dance pad has 4 buttons on the corners of the pad and 4 sensors, located to the left, right, front, and back sides of each pad. In contrast with other dancing rhythm games for arcade such as Dance Dance Revolution and Pump It Up, the 3DDX arcade doesn't have support bars to allow more movement in freestyle dancing. On the screen of the machine, arrows corresponding to each one of the buttons and sensors scroll upwards on the background until they reach a stationary set of arrows (often called "receptors") on top of the screen, which indicate the moment when the player must step on the corresponding arrow and/or activate the corresponding sensor.

There are 3 main screens in the game: The song selection screen where the player selects the song to be played and applies the modifiers, the dance screen where the player must hit the buttons and activate the sensors corresponding to the arrows on the screen, and the grading screen where the player receives a grade depending on their performance.


The grading system in 3DDX is similar to the one of Pump It Up. A judgment of "Perfect", "Great", "Good", "Bad" or "Miss" will be given for each one of the arrows depending on how accurately the player pressed the arrow or activated the sensor. At the end of the song, the game will grade the performance according to the amount of arrows hit.


The song list of the game features mostly music by popular Korean artists in the [90s] and a few international songs. The list of songs in the game is:
