Hop hopping
Hopping road

The game features a long, curving stretch of circular platforms. From the furthest platform, a ball spawns and begins to bounce along each of the platforms getting closer and closer to the screen. At the center and closest part of the screen is a yellow pole alongside a red pole. As the ball approaches, it will bounce along the other platforms in rhythm, until finally approaching the yellow and red ones, where the player must simultaneously use the A button and D-Pad respectfully to carry the ball across the end of the curve.


Button Mode

  • D-Pad: Bounce Red Pole
  • A: Bounce Yellow Pole

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Bounce Either Pole

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The ball bounces off the platform and continues its journey.
  • Barely: In Rhythm Tengoku, The ball continues its path but this counts as a miss, In Rhythm Heaven Megamix the ball will bounce off the platform, but make a faltering noise and fall. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The balls hits the platform and just rolls off.

I bought this for my son because
I heard it was the big, popular toy
this year. It turns out that it's even
MORE popular with adults. They
build these huge structures and
hold tournaments and stuff!

Skill Star

When you're near the end of the game and have one medium and fast ball, bounce the medium ball with a red pole perfectly to collect the star.
