Your mission, which you have no choice but to accept, is to explore our galaxy in search of a new home for the inhabitants of earth. Money was a bit tight with the impending extinction of the human race so your ship may be missing a few things. Ok really just one thing, the fuel tanks. I hope you're a good dancer because your ship has the latest in dance-to-energy© technology. So the mission is simple, dance to the prompts on the screen and you will get enough energy to make it to the next planet. Mess up and you will drift thought space for all eternity. Good Luck!

How To Play

The Goal is to build up your power gauge on the right to at least the green bar by the end of the song. You do this by following the swipe motions dictated by the screen. When the arrow reaches the orange line, perform the correct swipe action. The better your timing is the more power and points you receive.

Green is your right hand
The direction indicated which way to swipe (Up, Down, Right)

Blue is your left hand
The direction indicated which way to swipe (Up, Down, Left)
You can also build up a multiplier by chaining successful perfect actions. Each time you complete a song you will warp to the next planet and receive another song to complete. Make it all the way to the end and you win.

Tips

If you find that gestures aren't working for a hand, pull your hand out of the scene and slowly bring it back in with your fingers spread.
Don't move your hand too fast. Gestures should be nice and controlled to allow the Leap Motion Controller to not lose track of your hands.
Keep your hands where you can see them. If you can't see your hands then neither can the controller!
Avoid highly reflective objects right in front of you as this will cause a "bloom" in the image due to the reflection of the IR LEDs.

Background
