Jukebeat (Konami; Universal) - Tips, Strategies and IAP/Song Discussion Thread

Ju(ke)beat has finally arrived on the US Appstore! For the uninitiated, Jubeat is part of Bemani's series of music games (Beatmania, Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Freaks, etc) and uses a 16-button grid layout to display cues which need to be pressed in tandem with the background musical score.

Feel free to share tips and impressions on the DLC available for the game!





In-app purchase menu so far... disappointing, none of the originals from the Japanese version are here!

Bit ahead of the ball K2K?

We are not even sure it's the actual dev yet

What's there to be unsure about? I've already played a couple of tracks and everything seems on par with the Japanese one (color scheme, visuals, effects, etc) except for the fact that they have different tracks. I'm not digging these "English" ones :/

It's not in Europe so I decided to use my Japanese account for the Japanese Jubeat after all. What are the best j-pop IAPS? The cutest songs? And it's SO hard even on easy! OMG!

I bought the Cyndi Lauper tracks and I'm having a blast! I had forgotten how much fun it is to play a rhythm game to fun 80's music. But... it is so hard! I just cannot make out the patterns to the hard parts on the medium difficulty. In "Girls just wanna have fun" for example, there are a few parts in the middle of the song where you have to press 3 or 4 boxes at the same time, quickly after eachother. I don't even see what I have to do, let alone do it without error. I can pass the songs with a B rating, most of it is doable enough, but those difficult parts... I have no idea on how to get any further.

Any tips? I remember that I used to find step-charts or finger-charts for rhythm games on the internet. I think even Elite Beat had a GameFAQ with charts. Does anything like that exist for this game?
