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. :)

Nice adaption

I also was looking forward to a Patapon adaption, and this was brilliant.

i dont know what everyone is whining about

i thought the game was excellent...i will agree that adding a resource to look up what the moves were if you forgot would have been nice but as i played it straight through i didnt need one...and as far as the window of time needed to get the beat right is concerned, i thought it was very lenient and forgiving but then again i am a musician so maybe it comes a little easier to me. Regardless i thought it was a well made and enjoyable game. Looking forward to a part two.

Terrible Rip-off

This is a shameless rip-off, there isn't anything different to this game except for the terrible way that the beat is conveyed to you.

This would have been better if there were something original to it but even the drum beats were the same. I have no problems with someone using the idea at all. But making an almost carbon copy is a little ridiculous.

Maybe a complete art style change, different control method. Having different beats as opposed to the same four button combinations, much like the divine powers from Patapon. The problem I have with this is it doesn't bring anything new anywhere.

Zero stars good sir

Boom Boom Bang!

Bongo Boom Battlegrounds is a fun patapon styled rythm game. Unfortunately, it does have it's flaws. Such as, the special units are way to expensive and have no reinforcements. The spearman glitch and go behind your commander and attack nothing. There is more, but you get my point.
