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.




Love it!

I love this game and wish it were longer (although since it's basically an ad for the full game, I suppose that's how it's supposed to work). My only real criticism is, the visual aid--the pulsing border--seems to be a bit out of sync with the music. I'm a very visual person, so when I first started, I tried using the pulsing border to keep my timing, but it never worked. Once I basically ignored the border and kept my timing with the music, everything was fine. (Although admittedly, even then it can take me a couple of tries to get started--once the little dudes start singing along, though, I have no problem and can basically keep going forever.) Maybe others are having the same problem?

Wonderful concept

Though it's fairly off putting for some gamers due to the rather strict timing. Also what I think would be a cool idea is to gain control of large mounts and have drum beats that emphasize just how large said beastie is. Something like one pata or pon every four drum beats to give the feeling of a lumbering powerful creature.


Short but fun, really though you need to stress in your comments to HIT THE ARROWS IN TIME WITH THE MUSIC. People seem to be having a hard time coming to terms with the keeping with the beat thing and blaming the game itself. Might pick up patapon later, game warmed me up to the idea.

Major issues

the game has major issues. I'm faily good at rythmic games, and I can play many with almost no problem, but this one seams ot have is own made up timeing to it. Ontop of that the reconition of it is fairly off, making it just, not fun to play

Nowhere near as good as the first one

The gameplay is slow and unresponsive. The external sounds really throw me off the beat, making the game annoyingly difficult. The whole wallpaper idea is also pretty lame. Overall, I'd say this was a very poor remake.
