BootlegGames Wiki



Hot Dance 2000 is a plug-and-play dance mat game, running on famicom hardware. Loosely based on Dance Dance Revolution.

Note this pirated Famicom game is well known for having seizure inducing backgrounds that may hurt your eyes while playing.


When you first boot the game, you’ll be greeted by a title screen featuring glowing silhouettes with a glitchy effect and text filling the silhouettes, alongside a dancing character wearing all green in the bottom left corner.

Once you get past the title screen, you’ll be shown a menu with 3 options. “Single”, “Mix”, and “Game”

The game plays similarly to Dance Dance Revolution, only with the songs being 8-bit renditions of the originals, and the up and down arrow positions on the screen being switched. The player hits arrows that scroll to the top of the screen, just like in DDR. However, the game fails to take into account that the left/right or up/down double combinations do not play well with an NES/Famicom controller. This isn’t an issue on the original Plug-and-play, due to it using a dance mat.

No matter how the player performs, the health bar at the bottom stays full and does not change at all throughout the song. At the end of the song is when it becomes almost empty, no matter the player's performance.


When you select “Single”, it will cut to a simplistic menu, featuring a list of songs.
