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.





I give you 2 stars for originality. Although a boring rhythm game, it was original in the execution of the game itself.

Although, originality doesn't make much for a game. The timing on the whole "rhythm" (or what it REALLY is, is BEAT) was off. I play drums, have for the passed 10+ years, and know how to keep a beat and follow a beat with my hand, but apparently this game is no good at keeping a beat.

Way off

There were multiple times where I matched the beat.....and nothing happened. Also, there were other times when I would match the beat but it would miss. Needs a lot of work.

i hate this

it has the most unresponsive controls ever. i was right on beat but i lost anyway. and im a drumer. patapon is a good game, but this flash is not.

Not much to say here.

I couldn't do anything because the whole rhythm element didn't work for me. I tried all the possible timing, but it never worked. This is a good idea, but needs to be strengthened.

Decent concept

But the timing was completely off. No matter what I did, I could not stay on beat - and I have pretty decent rhythm. This could have been a good game, but its basically broken and unplayable.
