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 Air Batter 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. It's arrange variant, Air Batter 2, is unlocked later on in Rhythm Tengoku.

Gameplay

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 in the middle of space with the Space Umpire. As the music plays, a brown flowerpot will throw out baseballs, which the Air Batter 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.

Controls

  • Ⓐ/Tap Swing bat

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The ball flies offscreen.
  • Early!/Late!: 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

knock it into the endless void

fill the endless void of my

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

Trivia

  • Although the game lacks a conventional practice, the game will actually not start until you hit a few balls correctly. The game was given a tutorial in the arcade version and a practice session in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.
  • This game and Exhibition Match both show up in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, meaning the game has two separate Baseball-themed games.
  • The name of this game is either a pun on the word "baseball," or it could be a parody of the 1987 film Spaceballs.
  • This game is the first game to appear in the first remix in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, the Lush Remix.
  • The aliens in the Superb rating screens are similar to the one in First Contact, except gold-colored.
