Dancing Plate was inspired by the circus tradition of keeping spinning plates suspended on poles.
This game was released in 1982 and was re-released a year later as Dishaster in other regions.
The game is very straight forward. If you’ve seen any classic circus acts, there’s a good possibility you’ve seen the plate spinning act where a person does his best to keep spinning the plates on top of poles.
The player controls a girl attempting to keep a group of several spinning plates balanced on poles from falling. The game received negative reviews; criticism focused on the game's repetition and monotony.
