Pop'n Music features 9 large colored buttons on a control panel, and a monitor. First, choose your play level -- beginner, normal, or expert. Then, choose an original song from a variety of genres, including Pop, Reggae, Techno, Rap, Disco, Latin, and many more. After the song is selected, the screen will show 9 colored "pop notes" descending towards the timing bar. Watch the screen, and hit the corresponding colored buttons in time with the music and the notes on the screen.
Simple but addictive, players can unleash killer tracks by popping the buttons to the beat of the music. Pop'n Music can be played alone, or, get some friends together and team up to play in "Party Mode."
