Marching Orders (マーチャ Marcher?), is the 3rd minigame in Rhythm Tengoku and the 67th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, the player controls a Cadet, who is undergoing marching training with three other cadets while following their Sarge's orders. The game's sequel, Marching Orders 2, is unlocked later on in Rhythm Tengoku.

Gameplay

Marching Orders Arcade
Marcher gameplay 3DS

The player controls a Cadet at the end of the line, and must follow the Sarge’s orders. There are four commands that the Sarge will yell.

  • ”Attention, March!”
  • ”Attention, Halt!”
  • ”Left-face, Turn!”
  • ”Right-face, Turn!”

The player must perform these with proper timing along with the other Cadets. Just before the game ends, the Cadets will be moved offscreen, still marching. When all of the Cadets have disappeared, the game will end.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: March
  • B: Halt
  • Left: Left Face
  • Right: Right Face

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Appropriate Action

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player does the action at the proper time with the other Cadets.
  • Barely: The Sarge will angrily frown. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The Sarge will turn red with rage while steam puffs out of him.

Marching Orders Tempo Up! (マーチャ TEMPO UP! Marcher Tempo Up!?) is a variation of this game and the third in the Extra stage in Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade). In this variant, all the cadets are designed to look more feminine than usual, as they are wearing purple skirts and have flowers on the top of their helmets, while their Sarge's uniform is purple. The gameplay is the same, but the tempo is sped up, with a more vibrant synth for orchestration.

Trivia

  • In Rhythm Heaven's game Shoot-'Em-Up 2, the Shoot-'Em-Up Radio Lady is dressed like a cadet.
  • This is one of the few games in Rhythm Tengoku that has more than or equal to 3 commands - this one has 4 commands.
  • This is the one of a few games in Megamix to use every button (the D-Pad, the "B" button and the "A" button). The other being Super Samurai Slice.
  • This game contains unused sprites, consisting of:
    • The player characters clapping.
      MarchingOrdersUnused
    • The player characters of other versions pointing like in Marching Orders 2. Although these can be seen in action by swapping the graphics in the GBA version, there is no way to activate them in the 3DS version.
    • The Alien Bunnies marching like the humans in the other versions, something similar to their dance in WarioWare, and them looking upwards with their mouths open. None of these have any animations made for them.
