Behind You!! (Android) review
"Dance Dance Revulsion"
Fresh off of my playthrough of My brother ate my pudding, I decided to check out other free hap Inc apps. Behind You!! was the first one that popped up, so I decided that it would be my next brief time devourer. I anticipated more of the same kind of material from this piece that I encountered in My brother: strange humor, surreal content, a stern mother, charming presentation and an angered cat. Behind You!! featured all of that and more, and yet it managed to disappoint me. Although I didn't spend more than an hour playing the game, I ended my playthrough on a sour note, desiring more of the ingredients that made My brother a blast.
Behind You!! spoofs the rhythm genre. When you begin, you assume the role of the sister from hap Inc's games, guiding her through several solo dance sessions in her bedroom. Five musical tracks appear on the campaign screen, and fifteen remain locked. Each stage plays a cute tune, while red discs and coins descend from the top of the screen. Five circles rest at the bottom, and you must tap each coin or red disc as it passes through a circle. You get five lives per level attempt, and each miss subtracts a life.
On top of that, your mother can't stand dancing and forbids it in the household. Occasionally, you'll see a door behind you crack just a tad, which prompts you to press and hold a pause button. In doing so, your dancer either hides or engages in some other activity that doesn't enrage your mother: studying, sleeping, lifting weights, playing Twister by yourself, donning a Halloween costume... You know, the kinds of activities that quell a parent's suspicion.
