VOEZ PЯayStation Easy Chart Parodies Other Rhythm Games

I had intended to make a rhythm gaming April Fools wrap-up post, but VOEZ's PЯayStation easy chart makes me so happy that I decided to make a separate post just for it.

PЯayStation is just the existing song PrayStation with three new charts — last year VOEZ did something similar with Gamegame? for April Fools. The charts for each difficulty had its own gimmick, e.g. one chart encoded hints to a URL that previewed a new song before it was added to the game.

This year, the gimmick for the easy chart was that it parodied other rhythm games. Check them out:

Beatmania

praystation-1

Bust a Groove

praystation-2

Dance Dance Revolution

praystation-3

pop'n music

praystation-4

Paca Paca Passion

praystation-5

GuitarFreaks

praystation-6

DrumMania

praystation-7

Taiko no Tatsujin

praystation-8

SOUND VOLTEX

praystation-9

VOEZ

praystation-10

At the end, we return to the Special map for VOEZ!

I had to do some digging around for two of the charts, namely Bust-A-Groove and Paca Paca Passion. The former definitely fits due to the colour scheme and arrows, but I'm not as confident about the latter.

Either way this was a very interesting chart to play, especially because I had been comparing the game to SOUND VOLTEX at VOEZ's launch (due to the sliding columns and, at the time, maximum difficulty of 16).
