From the announcement:
When the original GROOVE COASTER was released in July 2011, its exhilarating rhythmic rollercoaster-like thrills and intuitive one-finger controls quickly earned it a great deal of critical acclaim and accolades. As the newest installment in the series, GROOVE COASTER ZERO combines new tracks and features with the fan-favorite game play of its predecessor, presenting the final product in an appealing free-to-play package.
