Gameplay

Power Calligraphy 3DS gameplay.PNG

The player controls a giant hand writing calligraphy with a surprising amount of strength. The giant hand writes automatically, while the player presses Ⓐ or taps to finish the characters with a powerful stroke when the hand reaches enough power. There are six different symbols to write:

  • (Re?)
  • (a Japanese comma?)
  • (chikara power?)
  • (onore oneself?)
  • (sun a Japanese kind of measurement?)
  • (kokoro heart?)
  • the characters つるニハ○○ムし (tsurunihamarumushi?) (or つ3ニハ○○ムし in the Korean version) arranged to form a face).

Near the end, the game goes faster and people come out dancing.

Controls

  • Ⓐ/Tap: Write (with power)

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The symbol is successfully written.
  • Early!/Late!: If early, the line turns out squiggled. If late, a messy spot of ink is made. Either way, a sigh is let out. The Mini Chounin stumble over. In Rhythm Tengoku, a "doink" sound is heard when this happens, but not in Rhythm Heaven Fever or Rhythm Heaven Megamix.
  • Miss...: If missed completely, no marks are made, letting out a sigh. The Mini Chounin stumble over.

I got these calligraphy tools as a

but they were so heavy and hard
to set up, I just couldn't get into
it. But then I started doing it to
music, and now I never stop!

Skill Star

The Skill Star appears on the first sun symbol (寸) in the game.

Rhythm o Shuji 2P (リズムお習字 2P Rhythm O Shuji 2P?) is the 2nd Rhythm Game of Stage 3 (10th overall) in the 2P mode of Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade).

It plays the same as the 1P version, except it has a split screen display to accommodate the second player. As a consequence of this design, there is only one column of dancers per screen, and they walk over the paper.

Trivia

Epilogue GBA Marching Orders 2 OK.png

Rhythm Tengoku Unused Gameplay Counts Power Calligraphy 2.png

  • There is an unused gameplay history screen in Rhythm Tengoku which can be accessed through the debug menu, which lists all the games and things in the Omaku Corner, the average score the player currently has (using a numbering system from 0 to 1000 which is hidden from the player in normal gameplay), and the amount of plays. Among the games is a string reading "リズムお習字 2"[1], meaning that a Rhythm o Shuji 2/Power Calligraphy 2 was intended, but ultimately scrapped.
  • The "The End" kanji that appears in Japanese version was kept in the international version of Rhythm Heaven Megamix, unlike Rhythm Heaven Fever.
  • In the Korean version, various things were changed, as seen below.
