Dance

Dancing to Eg Stomp

The Equestria Girls mini-game is a dancing mini-game where the player gets the character to dance to a song by tapping the screen. It was teased during the summer of 2013 and was implemented for the Version 2.3 - Equestria Girls Update on October 15th the same year.

Gameplay

Score

Soon after dancing,you can see your score in the dance game.

Prior to the start of the game, the player is prompted to select one of six characters, and then choose an outfit. The game begins after a prompt on the game's mechanics.

At the left-hand side of the top of the screen is a bar towards which icons will travel. There are three basic types of icons: purple horseshoes for a single tap, green horseshoes for a tap and hold, and yellow horseshoes for rapid tapping. The green and purple horseshoes can come alone or in pairs, which corresponds to a single finger tap or a two-fingered tap, respectively. The object is to tap the horseshoe as soon as it reaches the vertical bar. Depending on the timing, players can earn a "Perfect" or a "Good" for points. If the player misses a note it will darken and no points are earned.

Earning 100% hits (either Perfect or Good) on a song will cause the character to finish the song with the last pose she made, ending the song with any other percentage will make her keep dancing just for a small time.

Scoring

Characters

Oh my-

You may receive 2 messages: Amazing or You Rock, that happens when you have a good performance in the dance game.

After selecting a song, the player can choose to dance either as Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, or Rainbow Dash. Each character will have a multiplier associated with them; the character with the lowest full stars will have the highest multiplier,but in the end it will have the character with the lowest stars will give the least amount Additional points . The maximum multiplier a character can have is 4%, with the minimum being 0%.

The character currently with the highest multiplier will always be the first to appear on the selection screen and will be dancing. Additional points are awarded at the end of the game depending on how many Stars the pony currently has in Ponyville/Canterlot. Each star adds 2% for a total possible 10% of the dance's final score.

Their shadow size depends on your device's resolution. It can be either tiny for smartphones or huge for Windows in +4k resolution.

Dance Partners

Equestria Girls mini-game

As of the Hearth's Warming Eve 2013, when connected to a social network you can now choose two of your friends to dance with, adding a 4% score boost each. If they haven't danced that dance yet, their character will be shaded. If both partners have danced before however, they also allow you to score "Triple Perfect" during the dance (scoring a perfect hit on a note that both partners have a bar on their lines). For players under 13, the game automatically adds dancing partners when starting, but the score boost doesn't apply. Cel-shading is applied to your dance partners except for players under 13's partners. The left partner is outlined in Green and the right partner is Magenta. They don't apply on wings despite their 2D look.

Outfits

Outfits are chosen after selecting a character. Each of the three parts are added together for an overall multiplier, with the maximum possible being 30% but as of update 4.0 it has now increase to 100% (the pony level bonus is displayed seperately). Below is as of update 4.0

Cost Multiplier Description
Free 0% The character's default outfit.
2,000 Bit 10% The character wears a blue jacket with yellow "C" on the chest and a headband with yellow ears and a blue-yellow fake tail.
5 Gem 20% The character wears their respective Fall Formal dress.
15 Gem 100% The same as above, but with pony ears and their hair gets an extension resembling the pony tail of their counterpart. The outfit will also sparkle.

Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy gain wings in addition.

This table is for the window version or 3.9 or earlier.

Cost Multiplier Description
Free 0% The character's default outfit.
2,000 Bit 2% The character wears a blue jacket with yellow "C" on the chest and a headband with yellow ears and a blue-yellow fake tail.
3,500 Bit 4% The character wears their respective Fall Formal dress.
2 Gem 8% The same as above, but with pony ears and their hair gets an extension resembling the pony tail of their counterpart. The outfit will also sparkle.

Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy gain wings in addition.

However, Twilight Sparkle's shadow does not display correctly in her default outfit. This does not effect your friends who selected her in default outfit in that song. As of version 2.0.0z on Android, the shadow now displays properly.

Huge Shadows 4k 8.1

Twilight's default outfit Shadow is completely black in the Windows version while iOS and Android versions are not transparent (white).

Notes

During the song a player will earn points for every note hit correctly. The points earned depend on both the difficulty level of the song and whether it is a "Good" hit, a "Perfect" hit and a "Triple perfect hit". A Perfect hit is when the inner shape (the white heart) is tapped as it passes the vertical white bar. A triple perfect hit is,when you dance with full amount of friends (+2)  and all of your friends had perfectly hit the same note and you will hit that note with a "perfect hit". After that,you will receive a "Triple Perfect" hit. It doesn't work with a "good" hit.

Difficulty "Good" hit "Perfect" hit "Triple Perfect" hit
1 14 points 35 points 41 points
2 21 points 52 points 61 points
3 28 points 70 points 82 points

The point total at the end of the song is before any character or outfit multipliers are applied. Those multipliers are applied in the next screen that shows a summary of how many notes were hit. Any fractions are rounded down. However, in the current version of the game, the note hit results always give Perfect rating with decreased score.

Songs

Title Difficulty Notes Cooldown Maximum Score Maximum Score with "Triple Perfects" Skip
Opening Theme 1 53 1 hour 1,855 2,607 3 Gem
This Strange World 2 79 3 hours 4,108 6,023 5 Gem

  • The Skip cost decreases proportionally to remaining wait time (it worked this way in first version of minigame, for iOS and Android it was changed to fixed price and later reverted to scaling down).
  • The Windows version has more notes than other platforms. It is likely that the Windows hasn't updated to 2.0.0. yet.
  • Oddly enough, there hasn't been any new songs added from any of the Equestria Girls sequels. Only the 5 songs from the first movie are used.

Prizes

Prizes are awarded if the cumulative score reaches a certain mark on the bar at the top of the screen. The bar has been changed again to reset at the end of the cycle, which is Friday of every week. (Exact hour depends on your time zone.) It does not reset in Windows 8.1. However, the Windows version still resets the prize at the end of each week, which is not on Friday, but the day the player downloaded the app.

Seasonal Decor (Pot of Gold, Huge Egg Basket, etc.) can be won if it is from a past holiday update.

Each week, a pony is offered as an ultimate prize for playing the game. Almost any pony in the shops from Canterlot, Sweet Apple Acres and Ponyville, can be offered as prizes. You cannot win the ponies that you get in the balloon pop game, Princess Celestia, or certain ponies from holiday updates, such as Emerald Gem, Fire Chief, Cherry Berry, Noteworthy, etc. However, ponies from the Hearts and Hooves Day update, such as Lovestruck can be won.

If you already have won all of the potential prize ponies within the dancing game, or if you are on your second run-through in that same cycle, a high-cost decoration will be offered in exchange. In order to have a new decoration offered during the following week, you must win a given week's decoration ultimate prize. Otherwise, the same decoration will be offered each week.

Also, if you want to win another Pony Prize, you must wait for a week until the game resets itself.

Note to editors: please add all ponies and decor you have received or have seen offered as a reward for this mini-game. Note from StardriveTrumpeter: Also, the ones starting from number 44 were based on what you will get after all the ponies purchasable by bits were bought, so there may be some inaccurate informations.

Tips

  • Equestria Girls Dance Mini Game Introduction00:33

    Equestria Girls Dance Mini Game Introduction. My Little Pony- Friendship is Magic @Gameloft GAMELOFT

    If you haven't reached 5 stars with or bought all of your Mane Six characters, dance with a character you have that has both a high multiplier and a high amount of stars. IE: It's better to use a character that has a 3% multiplier and 5 stars than one with a 4% multiplier and 0-4 stars. Remember, each of your pony's stars gives a 2% bonus.
  • Spans of orange horseshoes - particularly long ones - do not always follow the beat of the song, so keep tapping until you get a rating message. Sometimes it helps to drum your index and middle fingers rapidly during these.
  • If you change the time and date stamp in your device settings, you can speed up the clock and not have to wait. Remember your starting date, for if you pass the upcoming Friday at noon you will lose all progress as the bar will reset. If you win a pony before your time bar is up, you can continue playing and win a decoration as your final prize or skip to the next Friday (past noon) to reset the bar and have a pony as your prize again. (This might not work at first; you can keep on trying, but the chance of parasprites, changelings and removable objects occurring will happen at a higher rate.) All prizes won when you are in future time in the game will stay as prizes when you reset your device's time and date stamp. This is true when you are connected to the Internet and when you are not. 
  • A perfect is worth more than twice a good, so if you find you get goods from tapping early it is worth it to delay a moment and get the perfect even if that mean missing a few more taps.  Even if you end up missing half of the notes that would have been good, you will be ahead.
  • If you're really good at a song, try playing with the sound off. It will help if the game abruptly stutters and causes the music to be a bit out of sync with the horseshoes.
  • The character with the highest multiplier is always smiling bigger than the other characters and dancing. Keep an eye out for this.
  • Adding friends to dance with you if very helpful, as each friend increases your multiplier. Having two friends dancing with you also adds the chance of hitting a Triple Perfect.
  • Don't buy costumes unless you are really good at a song. Stick with the free one until you are. That way you won't waste hard earned bits and gems on multipliers for a poor score. 
  • On Windows Phone 8.1, if you don't want to change time and date in your device, and you've already won the pony of the week and are left with a couple of days remaining for the prize to reset, you can keep playing to up the bar so that when the prize is reset you can win the next pony faster (as the progress bar does not reset)
