Bongo Boom Battlegrounds is a strategy game inspired by Patapon for the Sony PSP. Customise your army, choose a mission, then lead them into battle using a drum-based control scheme to give commands. Along the way you will encounter an 18 chapter storyline, a variety of enemy soldiers and several large bosses to defeat!

One of the reasons I created this was because it was really HARD looking for a Patapon-type game for the PC, so I made my own: the general style and control scheme may be borrowed from Patapon, but the story, artwork, and other game mechanics are entirely my own. I hope you will enjoy it, and have fun! Feedback is most welcome...

Instructions to play can be found in the game, everything is controlled by the arrow keys and spacebar.

Additional note: Thanks for all the comments, everyone! I hope you all had fun with the game. I've taken note of the more constructive suggestions and criticisms, and am currently working on the sequel... as for those who still feel it's too much of a patapon ripoff, then i sincerely apologize! it was never meant to be a 100% ripoff, i just really liked the idea of using drumbeats to control an army... so i made my own version of it. :)

Wow, it's inspired by Patapon?!?!?! I didn't notice! With the small one-eyed avatars, the hunting, the whole beat thing and even colour coated drums. Beautiful, just like the game.

If you want to take the gameplay of a music oriented game, you should make your game music-oriented too. The patapon-ish soldiers don't sing, the same terrible quality loop of music is in the background constantly, and honestly you feel like you're streaming together an oddly timed street fighter combo rather than a drum beat. Patapon is great not only because of gameplay, but because of music, which was around 75% of the greatness of the game. If patapon lacked in music everyone would hate it.
