Packing Pests 2 (しわけ2"Shiwake 2?) is the 48th game in Rhythm Heaven Fever. It is the sequel to Packing Pests. In this sequel, you play as an employee with long hair, and work during nighttime at the same company, slapping Treat Spiders and catching candies to put into the box. Getting a Perfect unlocks the soundtrack of this game.

Appearance/Gameplay Differences

Packing Pests 2 gamepl;ay

The game takes place during a night shift at the candy company. The employee has grown a head full of hair, but still sorts the smiling candies and slaps out the Treat Spiders.

The game is mechanically the same as the first Packing Pests; there are two new cues added to tutorial where the player must deal with offbeats. Since the stage still runs on a candy-spider pattern, the treat spider is now on an offbeat early rather than directly on beat as with the first stage. "Double-up" is still the same, where you're given a candy-spider-spider scheme instead. If two exclamation points appear on the right, then the next spider will be on beat but the candy will be offbeat instead. The tempo is also much faster than its prequel.


  • A + B: Catch
  • A: Slap

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The candy will be grabbed and dropped in a box. Spiders are slapped forward to the ground, and walk back offscreen.
  • Barely: The candy is fumbled and does not make it into the box. Spiders will be only grazed, making them fall straight down. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: Candy and spiders will fly past you and into the employee's workspace, making him shudder (with a more visible shudder for spiders). Slapping candy instead of grabbing it cause it to be knocked down. Grabbing spiders instead of slapping them causes the employee to grab them, then drop them and shudder.

  • The extra money thrown at the end of the game counts as one of the requirements for a Superb rank. This means that if you get all the other things right, but miss the money, you only get an "OK" rank.
