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.

dude, problem

the animation almost matched the real game but the music did not. the music is what makes patapon what it is. first problem: i could hear the "rhythm of the earth" but i could not hear the holy drums. also when patapons hit fever their song doesnt change it just stays as is.

another thing is that rhythm does not stick to its designated level EXAMPLE: i walk through the forest suddenly the song changes to bovo volcano theme then back.

Quality controls

Only issue I have with this game is the fact you have no "quality control", which would allow a weaker PC to improve frame rates. Likewise, it says to follow the rhythm. Left, left, left, right, left left left right...
I hit these keys, and get the proper timing, and yet my "army" stumbles...

I can't give a rating for this game. Because I couldn't, once hit Pata three times, then hit pon once. Not one. Single. Time. Could I do it. I don't know what the problem was, but I would get two Patas, and for whatever reason the third would never happen.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


I don't get where the complaints about the rhytm come from, I managed to perfectly synchronize with the commands and the drums. And never having played Patapon before (no PSP) I found this really entertaining to play.
