Bongo Boom Battlegrounds

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. :)


Hey dipshits

If you read the description, which you prolly didn't, he said it was "Inspired" by Patapon. He didn't say it was his idea. So stop saying he ripped it off.



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.

I liked it

I haven't played Patapon. I guess all of the reviewers below me never read the authors remarks. You say in your remarks that it is like Patapon and that you wanted one for the PC. Anyway . .

Storyline Spoiler for those of you who have yet to play the game!

I liked the storyline although it is a pretty common storyline. Many games have the "you get stronger and THEN the bad guy who was on your team decides to change sides.". Nonetheless I didn't see it coming.

The art was kindave fun. I wonder what this game would look like if it looked more realistic. Like having organized formations moving backwards and forwards on a battlefield (I'm a Medieval War Total War PC game fan can you tell?).

I liked the gameplay
I liked the artwork more or less
and I liked the storyline.


it is a very unique and fun game.


This is a great game, I like the whole beat idea
