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.

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

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?
