Free version of DDR

'pydance' is a clone of DDR ("Dance Dance Revolution") written in Python. There's a mat with four directional arrows, and the game scrolls arrows up the screen to the beat while playing a song. When the arrows reach the top of the screen (not sooner and not later), the player hits the corresponding arrow on the pad, and given that it's hit on time with the beat, points are scored. The player is graded at the end of the song based on how well the dance is put together. Py DDR supports both keyboard and mat play, so you do not need a mat to play PyDDR. This package was formerly known as 'PyDDR.'
