If you have ever been to a party in your lifetime, chances are you will have come across the activity known as the conga line. If you do need an explanation, a conga line is when a group of people dance in a line around a room to a piece of music. Although there have been many types of rhythm action games over the years, very few have centred around the conga line until the arrival of Conga Master, which was originally developed during one of the highly popular Ludlum Dare games jam events. The expanded version of the game arrived on PC earlier this year, and has now arrived on home consoles courtesy of its publisher Rising Star Games.
Conga Master Party for the Nintendo Switch is a direct port of this musical themed action game, despite the addition of an extra word into the title. This isn’t a problem by any means, as quite a few games have altered their names when changing from one platform to another. The aim of each stage is choose your main character from a diverse cast filled with men and women with different clothing and abilities. As their chosen character automatically moves across the dance floor, the player can change the angle and direction of their movement by using only the shoulder buttons, as long as they have the motivation to proceed. These simple controls have been tuned to perfection in game, but it can sometimes be a little loose during the in game menus where the player must rotate a dial to access their choices.
