Launch Party (ロケットゼロ Roketo zero "Rocket Zero") is the 26th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 65th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. This game is about launching miniature size rockets into outer space.


Launch Party gameplay
Launch Party 3DS gameplay

In the game, the player controls a square-shaped "launchpad" as it flies into space. As the launchpad flies, multiple kinds of rockets will pop up onto it. When a rocket appears on the launchpad, a countdown will appear on the launchpad's screen. The player needs to launch the rocket when the countdown reaches 0, launching it into space.

The are four different types of rockets, each with their own type of countdown.

-Red "Ship" Rocket: Counts down from 3, at the rate of one number per beat.

-Blue "Party Hat" Rocket: Counts down from 5, at a fast pace.

-Green "Bell" Rocket: Counts down from 7, at a very fast pace.

Grey "Bowling Pin" Rocket: Counts down from 1, at a very slow pace.

The countdowns are used to help judge the time to launch, but are also to confuse; the timing for each rocket other than the red ones is roughly the same.

Limitless Possibilities
Man, a launchpad without rockets doesn't seem exciting, does it? It's like a blackboard that no one has written on. All potential, no drama.

Skill Star

When you are at the high speed part of the song after launching the green bell rocket, launch the red ship rocket perfectly to collect the star.

A version of the game can be unlocked in the two-player mode, requiring the completion of the original game and the previous two-player game, Flipper-Flop, to unlock.

The game has two launchers, with the first player's being blue, and the second's orange. Both launchers have rockets pop up on them to be launched. The rockets and timing for the players are the same, requiring them to launch at the same time. However, partway through the game, each player will end up moving far into the background; they still need to launch rockets, so they need to contend with both the other player and stars obscuring their view.



  • Getting either a Try Again or OK rating has a member of The Clappy Trio appearing on the rating screen. A Superb rating lets you see the UFO from Airboarder in the rating screen.
  • During the game, voices can be heard during certain points, though the voices are obscured by the music. This video lets you hear the voices without the music.
  • This game has slightly been updated in Megamix to have more stars appearing in the background when you reach the outer space.
