Rhythm Tengoku (リズム天国 Rhythm Heaven?) is a rhythm game developed by Nintendo SPD. It was only released in Japan on August 3, 2006, and also the last game Nintendo had developed for the Game Boy Advance. This is the first installment of the Rhythm Heaven Series. An arcade version was co-developed by Sega.



Gameplay of Polyrhythm

The core gameplay of all of the minigames is based on rhythm. Every minigame has its own set of rules.

Rhythm Games

Rhythm Games is the main core of Rhythm Tengoku. The object of this mode is to unlock each rhythm game, or mini-game, by achieving a decent score based on how well the player kept in the rhythm of the previous one. After unlocking and completing the first five games, a Remix will appear that combines previous games, usually those featured in the last Stage. Once the remix is completed, the next game will be unlocked as well as four other games waiting to be unlocked in its Stage and so forth. Stage 6 has a twist where each of the minigames are rearranged versions of the last minigame of each Stage before it. After that, there are two more Stages with harder versions of other minigames.

Once a "Superb" rank is achieved on a rhythm game, a chance to go for a "Perfect" will be available at random times. Other things can also be accessed in this mode during game progression such as the Café, Drumming Lessons and Rhythm Toys. Everything unlockable in these areas can be obtained by earning Medals or achieving perfects.
