The game takes place in a featureless white plain in Rhythm Heaven, and a giant cake in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. The player takes control of a Paddler, who is playing a table tennis match with their rival. The rival serves a ball, and the player must hit it back. There are three speeds of served balls: The normal ball, which bounces on every beat; the slow one, which bounces higher on every two beats; and the fast one, which is preceeded by a cowbell noise, after which the ball is bounces on each half beat before it's hit back.

You don't seem to grasp the basics.
You're not a good judge of distance.
You need to work on the fast bits.

Hm... (US.svg)/Hmm... (UK.svg)
Good enough...
I don't know...
I guess that was all right.

You've got the basics down!
