Flipper-Flop 2 (かえってきた コロコロたんけん隊 Kaettekita Korokoro Tankentai "Return of Rolling Exploration Group"), known in Rhythm Heaven Fever as simply Flipper-Flop (コロコロたんけん隊 Korokoro Tankentai "Rolling Exploration Group"), is the 22nd minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 55th minigame, being a sequel to Flipper-Flop in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.  In this game, the expedition team of Flippers drills hard listening to their captain.

Gameplay

Flipper Flop
Flipper-Flop 3DS gameplay

In this game, players must flip to the beat of the song. When three consecutive eighth notes played are heard in the song, the player must press A in the same timing in the next two beats. The caller, Captain Tuck, will ask the seals to perform a certain amount of "flipper-rolls", which are performed with different buttons.

Controls

Rhythm Heaven Fever

  • A: Flip
  • A + B: Roll over

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

Button Mode

  • A: Flip
  • B: Roll over

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Flip or Roll over

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The flipping will continue. After a successful flipper-roll chain, Captain Tuck will compliment the team with a "Good!", "Yes!" or "Nice!".
  • Barely: The player's seal will get close to bumping, and will get a worried look on its face. A small "tick" sound will replace the normal sound. If it happens during a flipper-roll chain, Captain Tuck will still compliment the team. A barely counts as a miss in both Fever and Megamix.
  • Miss: The player's seal bumps into the seal(s) next to it, causing it to get a silly look on its face while the other seals look annoyed. If the mess-up happens during a flipper-roll chain, Captain Tuck will become disappointed and he will count the remaining rolls in an upset tone of voice.

A version of the game can be unlocked in the game's two player mode. It requires the completion of the original game and the previous two-player game, Micro-Row, to unlock.

The game has the first player as a blue seal and the second as an orange seal. Each player is in a separate row of seals. The game follows the original game's pattern with no changes, the players need to do the same thing.

Trivia

  • In the end of a flipper roll routine, if the player attempts to roll beyond count, Captain Tuck may shout out "Now!" upon the error.
  • At the training in the Japanese version of Rhythm Heaven Fever, he says "Sentai, Hajime!"("Squadron, start!") very similarly to Marching Orders' audio cue.
  • The background in epilogue screens was changed to have pink color on it like in-game rather than blue in Fever.
  • There are a total of 230 inputs required to get a Perfect in this game.
  • The premise of this game is similar to Blue Birds, as both games involve cute small animals doing serious military-esque training.
