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. :)


that was awful

you took everything creative about patapon a squashed it, really disappointing as a patapon player.
but the animation was smooth, and the graphics weren't bad, you could make some great games if you'd just come up with your own ideas

Good game

The only thing is, WHY do you need drums to control a squad of five people? You can just shout.

... 2 words TO HARD


I actually love the "drum concept." That's what makes the game so special. Without it, Bongo Boom Battlegrounds would be no different than some other flash games here on NG.

I'd change it slightly, though. At some point my fully trained and upgraded basic troops were as good (if not better) as the tier II/III advanced troops. You could make the game a little more difficult and the advanced troops a bit stronger or let us upgrade them at least once.

More things could be added, but that would make the game a bit too complex and probably hard to play. So, I'd rather see a sequel with minor changes, and maybe then the 3rd version with some complexity added.

Great game, by the way.

Horrible game...

I hated the "drum concept" of the game, would have been tons better if you had just dropped out the drum part and let us just play the game like a normal RTS/Strategy game...
