Freeze Frame
Freeze Frame gameplay 3DS

In this game, you're a camera man taking photos of various race cars. Most of the time, they will be small yellow cars, and will give an audio cue with an obvious engine sound. Snap a pic of one of the racers that passes by you. There are two or three racers in a row. There's also a faster, carrot-shaped vehicle, where the audio cue for that will come as it's passing on the other side of the track. To get the picture, react as fast as possible.


Button Mode

  • A: Take picture

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Take picture

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The photographer will lower the camera and smile at his success. All pictures show the racers in the middle. A "Ding" like noise will sound and depending on the version you are playing, either a green thumbs up will appear or a circle will appear.
  • Barely: The photographer will lower the camera and tilt his head to the side and a tear will well up in one eye. At least one picture, while the others are "Spot on!", will show only the front half or the back half of the racer. A "DEE-DOO-DOP" like noise will sound and depending on what version you are playing, either a yellow thumbs up pointing right will appear or a triangle will appear. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The photographer will lower the camera and streams of tears will pour from his face. At least one picture will show up as the race track only. A buzzer noise will sound and depending on what version you are playing, either a red thumbs down will appear or a cross will appear.

Skill Star

When you are at the three racers passing the crowd, snap the photo of the third one perfectly to collect the star.



  • Sometimes, when taking a good picture of the racers, characters from Rhythm Tengoku will be seen in the pictures such as Rats, Sneaky Spirits, and Ninjas. Additionally, the drivers occasionally flash a peace sign at the camera.
  • If you take a picture of a racer when the lady passes by, she can be seen on the right side of the photo. She smiles with joy when hitting perfectly. When you barely shoot a photo, she will be annoyed.
  • In addition, some characters from Rhythm Tengoku are part of the crowd in the background such as the RAPMEN, The Clappy Trio, the Space Dancers, and the Monkeys. In Rhythm Heaven Megamix, there are multiple monkeys and box-headed dancers with different colors.
  • The game starts with a text "Rhythm Kart" sliding down. This could be a reference to Mario Kart.
  • In the European version of Rhythm Heaven, the symbols were changed to hand signals; the cross was replaced by a red “thumbs down” gesture, the triangle was replaced by a yellow "fist" gesture and the circle was replaced by a green "thumbs up” gesture.
