First things first, this isn't stolen, we built it for Playstation to promote Patapon 2.
Its a rhythm game where you control the Patapon tribe using "pata" or "pon".

As with our last game, its not meant to be a exact replica, just a flash minigame taster.
The instructions are in the game but its really no more complicated than hitting the left arrow key for "pata" and the right arrow key for "pon" in time to the music. The Patapon will tell you what combination does what and when you need to do it.

Oh and finally - there is no drum sound when you press the keys because Flash 10 still cannot respond with audio on a key press without serious lag (on PC - better on Mac). And those few nanoseconds of lag totally throws out your timing when playing this. So we left the drum beats off intentionally.





Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


For a game built entirely around rhythm the timing was next to impossible to peg down. Even with the sound off and just the flashing outline it never seemed to sync up. It would have been nice to have some sort of obvious measure to determine exactly how much you're missing the beat. Instead in this game you actually have to stop playing, listen (or watch), and them try to reconstruct your rhythm.

Can't play it

This I deem unplayable. The timing you need is way too strict, sorry...

People find this review helpful!

looked like a great game but it was so irritating im great with music and beats but the beats work so terribly that I have a guge headache fix the timer and ill give you better rating but as is this game sucks but visually stimulating ad topless women lol


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Heres my opinion of the game:

THE GOOD : awesome graphics!!it looked like the psp game!
fun and addicting gameplay

THE BAD : the timer was kinda irritating, you should remove that if you made patapon 3..

CONCLUSION: great game that gets a score of 8/10!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

A great game!

I am very rhythmically inclined, but I had a hard time with this game. Since the voices were not synced to the beat, I hat to click slightly after the beat, making streaks impossible. Because this game was greatly executed in every other way, I'm going to assume that my browser or flash is at fault for this error. [:

I must say, I loved the art, and the game is very well produced. It is also very original and addicting. I will most likely purchase the actual game. (Assuming that there no sync problems exist in the actual game, it will only be 10x better.)

I know that this is more of a demo, but I would like to see it developed more. More commands. Maybe having it change a little would keep it interesting. Also, having off beat notes would make it a little more interesting as well. i.e. eighth notes, half notes, etc. But, maybe these are features of the full version.

This game deserves higher than what it has. If the the syncing was improved for those of us having problems, I am sure this rating will improve.

5/5 -- A very well executed and original rhythm game full of great art.
