Bust-A-Move 2: Dance Heaven Mix Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Hints

Acid Line song

Enter the sound options screen and select music test. Hold Left or Right to 
quickly cycle through the song selections. Robo-Z Gold's song "Acid Line" will 
flash among the titles. Try stopping the cycling on that song to hear it.

More points

To earn a higher score, anticipate your player's first move and press the button 
before it appears on the screen (in the blank bar). The game will skip the first 
move and you will earn higher points.

Steal a solo

Attack an opponent just before their solo to steal it and do your own as well for 
extra points.

Shrink your opponents

Capoeira and ChiChi & Sally can shrink their opponent by attacking them. If you 
attack twice in a row, they will remain small for the entire battle.
