Gameplay

Lockstep 3DS.PNG

In this game, the player plays as a Stepswitcher in the center of the screen. The Stepswitchers begin stepping in beat after the cowbell clicks. The player must step consistently in this same beat until one of the Stepswitchers signals to step in offbeat to the rhythm. The rhythm will keep switching on and offbeat during the game when signaled. To confuse the player, the screen will zoom out, showing many more Stepswitchers.

Controls

  • Ⓐ/Tap: March

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The player marches correctly.
  • Early!/Late!: The player marches slightly off, resulting in a "tick" sound. In Rhythm Heaven only, this does not cause the player to fail a Perfect Campaign.
  • Miss...: The player steps on the wrong beat (or not at all) and gets smacked by the Stepswitcher next to them.

It's creepy the way the painting's
eyes seem to follow you wherever
you go, but it's even creepier when
you mess up your rhythm and the
painting laughs at you. Also, it's a
bit embarrassing.

Skill Star

The Skill Star appears when switching back to the beat near the end of the game.

Trivia

  • The colors were softened in the international release of Rhythm Heaven, presumably to reduce seizures. The original colors are used in all versions of Rhythm Heaven Megamix.
    • The closest to farthest zoom out's sprite is unfinished in the Japanese version, where a column of tiles is missing on the left side while the Stepswitchers are marching on the offbeat. This is fixed in the International release.
