Beat'n Groovy is a music video game distributed over Xbox Live Arcade. It was released on October 8, 2008 for 800 MSP ($10 USD).[1] The game is based on Pop'n Music, a similarly styled arcade/PlayStation 2 game series that has not been released officially outside of Japan.


As scrolling notes scroll down the screen, the player is to press the corresponding button on the controller, which plays a keysound which fills in part of the selected song. Players are judged on the accuracy of their hits, and a life bar on the side of the screen increases or decreases depending on their performance. The life bar must be at or over 60% at the end of the song in order to pass. The game features nine songs (ranked on a difficulty level of 1 to 9, although the hardest song is only a 3), and seven playable characters. 3-key and 5-key modes are available, with online multiplayer modes using 3-key only. An additional play mode using the Xbox Live Vision camera is also available.


IGN's Hilary Goldstien gave Beat'n Groovy a 2.0/10, critiquing the game as "poorly designed and poorly executed", and dubbing the song list as being "horrendous".[2]
