Break Dance (also known as Breakdance) is a Commodore 64 rhythm game that relies on players making dancing moves that resemble the classic game Simon says.[3] The game capitalized on early 1980s-era b-boying, which was a popular trend in American culture.[5] The game was inspired by the films Flashdance and Beat Street.[6]


A computer character performs a pattern of five break dancing moves that must be copied by the player. One new move is added to every round; making the game more complicated as the player progresses through each stage.[3]
