Showtime (ショータイム,Shoutaimu?) is the 14th rhythm game in Rhythm Tengoku. In this game, the player controls a monkey that hits a switch to releases balls caught by penguins.
It's showtime at the zoo! This game is short and easy. You control a yellow monkey with a tail and you must hit a switch at the right time to launch a ball. A penguin can then grab it out of the air. There are three penguins that will show up:
The grey penguin, Gwen. (3 Beats)
The small, white penguin, Gonzales. (Same as the first, but with a bouncier rhythm)
The big, black penguin, Glacier. (5 Beats)
A: Hit switch
Hit: The crowd will applaud loudly or quietly as the penguin catches a ball and lands on the podium. The balls will sometimes open tiny parachutes, making penguins fly down on you if your timing is good.
Barely: The crowd will gulp as the ball is released too early. The penguin can't reach it, and it falls into the water. The monkey will look worried. A barely counts as a miss.
Miss: The crowd will boo at you as the ball is not released and the penguin falls into the water.

"よしと します。" (You did your best.)
"ペンギンも満足。" (The penguins are satisfied.)
"お客さん、 おこってたネ…" (The customers looked angry...)
"ボクたち こんなもんじゃないはず…" (This shouldn't have been a problem for us...)
"やった！！ お客さん 楽しんでくれたー！！" (Woohoo! We made the customers happy!)
