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. :)

Great game

Love the concept, even the rythmically challenged can find it simple (I'm not that great at rhythms), plus the difficulty level is right where I liked it, however I would have appreciated unit variety.

Definatly entertaining

I got addicted to this! I was really wondering why I was finding some of the bits so hard though... until I realized my mistake was actually using the 'advanced units' the lancers and maybe the legionaries and demon hunters are worth it.... but its even easier to just keep the swordsmen and upgrade them fully.

I would love to see another BUTa bit more balanced (if your spending two gems on a unit with no reinforments u expect it to be a LOT harder to kill than they are)

That said I really enjoyed it!

Well, although I can see where the people who rate lower due to the patapon similarity are coming from,
I completely understand why you did it, and I'm glad you did- I played this game through and loved it, regardless of whether or not it is similar to Patapon.

It was cool, although, if I could offer a suggestion, you forgot the end.
It seemed very abrupt, with an original metroid-style finish: "You saved the King and princess and so on. Congrats." That was pretty unfulfilling.
I know the game is short, but give us some kind of ending- an animation showing the princess/king waddling out of a building with the princess hugging the flagbearer would have sufficed.

Still, you get my ten.

It's Just A PataPon Parody, Since I Like Patapon I'll Give This A 6, But Improve The Deaths, They Look Like They Turn To Dust. Anyway, Good Job, Keep It Up!
