Bmlogo.png
  • beatmania is the very first BEMANI game ever released.
  • beatmania has the smallest amount of selectable songs in any BEMANI game, with 7 songs available in 1P or 2P mode, and a maximum of 3 are available in one stage.
  • The song select screen does not display the title of a song, only its genre. The title is only displayed on the splash screen before gameplay.
  • Once the player starts playing, the game gives you an option to enter a PRACTICE STAGE, which lets the player see a short tutorial, and then play jam jam reggae and u gotta groove.
    • If the player skips the PRACTICE STAGE, then he/she can choose a song each stage from a limited song list:
  • Three songs include FREE ZONE at the scratch lanes.
    • Only GOOD or WORST can appear at the FREE ZONE.
    • There is no way to obtain 100,000 points on songs with FREE ZONE.
