these stairs, because sometimes
fruit bounces down them. Free Fruit!

Catchy Tune (階段キャッチ Kaidan Kyattchi) is the fourth minigame introduced in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, the player controls two characters, Praline & Araline, one with the letter "A" on their shirt, and one with a D-Pad "+" on their shirt, as they catch the pineapples and oranges that bounce off from the top of stairs in an alley in the city.

A sequel later appears in Honeybee Tower under the title Catchy Tune 2.


The object of the game is to catch the fruit that drop from either the left or right sides of the screen. You use the D-Pad (+) for Praline to catch the ones on the left, and the A button for Araline to catch the ones on the right. The oranges are quick and bounce low (in three beats), but the pineapples are slower and bounce high (in three different beats).

Jumping road gameplay


Button Mode

  • A: Araline; catch

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player catches the fruit in their hands.

I love the market on the hill, but
the bags they use are so flimsy!
Yesterday my bag ripped and all of my fruit-salad
ingredients went bouncing down the stairs!
