Patapon 2 The Art Of War

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.

First time playing this I love it!

Oh yeah pata-pata-pata-pon

I am sorry, but I just couldn't understand this game. At least I'm the first person to review it this year! I guess the design is pretty good. It just seemed like nothing happened. I tried randomly pressing the arrow keys. It didn't do anything.

I don't know what the deal with the time limit is. At least you can turn the music off. I'm not familiar with the game you claim you're not stealing from. Other people seem to like it. I do not desire to into it.

The only problem I had with this game was that the white lines pulsing to the beat of the drum was wrong somehow and it's very off-putting. At first I couldn't even beat the second level, but if I closed my eyes or looked away from the screen then I did perfectly.

So yeah. I never owned the game but I always played the demo for hours as a kid, so this was a nice nostalgic trip. :P
