An inventive and fun rhythm action game that keeps the genre alive through the unlikely medium of breakdancing.
Simplistic controls and formulaic song layouts lead to repetitive gameplay, but Floor Kids still delivers unique fun in the rhythm/music space
Ultimately, what we're left with is a somewhat flawed, yet enjoyable experience. It may lack in the variety and depth departments, but it manages to make up for its faults by offering up an absurdly stylish, good time. It may not be perfect, but it's a very well executed idea. It's boldly different, and it left me excited for what might come next.
Floor Kids brings freeform fun to the dance rhythm action genre, successfully delivering on a unique gameplay system that provides the player with freedom and the opportunity to improvise. The restrictive chorus sections disappoint and the game is all over rather quickly, but whilst it lasts Floor Kids is definitely a ninja floating nut cracker.
Floor Kids isn't a game that's going to eat up a lot of time. The novelty can wear out quickly, even with the game's dozens of fresh tracks. But the multiplayer is enough of a fun diversion that it's worth trotting out on occasion with your significant other, roommate, or close acquaintance. It's a solid effort, one bolstered by its unique art style and its desire to dare to be a little different.
Floor Kids is a laid back and fun music rhythm game that is hiding a deep and competitive layer that is hard to put down
Floor Kids is a stylish and fun breakdancing title, with an intuitive control scheme and unique look and feel. There's a good chance you'll enjoy its scribbly presentation and Kid Koala's tracks, but the game unfortunately comes apart after a few hours of play. With no real increase in challenge, repetitive music, and lack of variety in the cast of characters, there's little reason to keep playing once you get to grips with it. There's plenty to like here, but there's just not quite enough of a game here to keep most engaged in its fun, freeform gameplay.
Floor Kids for Nintendo Switch is not without its faults, thanks to gameplay that puts a little too much faith into in-game exploration. However, it shouldn't be lost in everything else that Floor Kids has to offer, namely a distinguished art style, a fresh take on a genre, and beats to mash it up. If you are a fan of passion projects, Floor Kids is going to be right up your alley.
Floor Kids has what a good rhythm game should have: a good gameplay mechanic, with fluid action and a soundtrack that fits perfectly with the game. Pity that its visual environment and art style are completely out of touch with the rest of the game and look very much sub par in what is, otherwise, an enjoyable experience.

Dizzyingly stylish and crazy fun, Floor Kids is an absolute joy. Its DIY-dancing gameplay grants players a freedom seldom seem in rhythm games, and that gamble completely pays off; instead of tapping along to the beat, you're tapping into a sense of flow, creativity and fun to make your own moves, and that's both immensely satisfying and wholly unique. Whether you're a wannabe breaker or a music game guru looking to dance to a different drum, Floor Kids is a killer cut.
