Spaceball (エアーバッター Air Batter?) is the 4th minigame in Rhythm Tengoku and the 28th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, the Space Slugger hits baseballs that come out from a flowerpot in a small, green room in space. The camera will zoom in and out, sometimes very far, during gameplay. A sequel, Spaceball 2, is unlocked later on in Rhythm Tengoku.


Air Slugging
Space ball 3DS

This game has an odd design. The screen will often zoom out, making this scene difficult to see. The game takes place inside a small green room with a flying saucer. As the music plays, a flowerpot will throw out baseballs, which the player must hit by pressing A. The flower pot will occasionally throw high balls which require the player to wait an extra beat before pressing A. Occasionally, the screen will zoom out, requiring the player to track the balls using the music alone.


Button Mode

  • A: Swing bat

Simple Tap

  • Tap: Swing bat

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The ball flies offscreen.
  • Barely: A "doink" is heard as the ball bounces out of the room. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The ball falls in the hole in the floor.

This rice ball was supposed to be my lunch. I didn't mean to knock it into the endless void of space--it was supposed to fill the endless void of my stomach. So...hungry...

Skill Star

About halfway through the minigame, hit the high ball perfectly to get the skill star.
