Cosmic Rhythm Rally (コスモピンポン Cosmo Ping-Pong?), known in Rhythm Heaven as Rhythm Rally 2 (ピンポン2 Ping-Pong 2?), is the 36th minigame in Rhythm Heaven and the 87th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It is the sequel to Rhythm Rally 2. The song is extended, the ping-pong game takes place in outer space, and the Paddlers (in Rhythm Heaven) are replaced with Cosmic Dancers in the Megamix version of the game.

Gameplay

Rhythm Rally 2 gameplay
Cosmo Rally gameplay

The gameplay is the same as before, but it's longer and more fast-paced. The camera isn't always facing the opponent, unlike in the first two Rhythm Rally games; it moves constantly, distracting the player (sometimes even blocking their view) and making them rely more on the rhythm of the ball's bounces. There is also a new move called the high-speed rally, cued by eight cowbell sounds separated by a half-beat. It is a faster variant of the regular rally and lasts for two measures.

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player continues the rally.
  • Barely: The player hits the ball, but it goes off the table, and a "doink" sound can be heard. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The ball falls into the player's side, a whistle is heard, and a new ball appears on the opposing side.
