In the midst of lockdowns and quarantines, it can be easy to lose track of your workout routine. Perhaps you’d rather not risk it outside, so you don’t bike, walk or run anymore. Maybe you’re not used to working out without all the equipment and convenience that comes with a gym. If any of this is hitting close to home, 505 Games’ Zumba Burn it Up! might just be the kick in the butt you need right now.

Zumba Burn it Up! is an exercise game. Think of Ubisoft’s Just Dance series - the goal is to get you moving and dancing to catchy tunes while breaking a sweat. You select a couple of songs to dance to, and use the Joy Con controllers to mimic the in-game dancers so the game knows exactly how well you’re doing. All things considered, those Joy Cons are surprisingly accurate. On higher difficulties, it can be hard to keep up with all the commands given on screen, and the controllers record your movements well enough for the game to score you accurately.
