Tanooki & Monkey (たぬき&モンキー Tanuki & monkī?) is an unused minigame found within Rhythm Tengoku. Here, you play as a monkey-like drummer, Moné, who has to copy a monkey & raccoon named Salu & Ponta, respectively.

Gameplay

You’re the drummer on the far right. You have to copy the drumming patterns of Ponta & Salu. When Salu plays the snare with his left hand, it is expected that A will be pressed to play the snare drum with your right hand. When he plays with his left hand, it is expected that D-Pad Right is used to drum it with your right hand. However, the full drum controls are available; therefore, the player doesn't have to use the respective hand to drum. When Ponta plays his tom-tom, use D-Pad Down to copy him. You get three tries for each pattern. At the end of the game, you’ll get a numbered high score, like in Tengoku’s Rhythm Test & Megamix. However, when you get a game over, the game will abruptly end, thus giving you a zero.

Controls

  • A: Hit the middle drum with your right hand
  • Down: Hit the left drum
  • Right: Hit the middle drum with your left hand

Timing Notes

  • Hit: You play the pattern correctly. The game moves on to the next pattern.
  • Barely: N/A
  • Miss: Salu points out that the pattern is wrong and asks you to try again. You only get three tries on each pattern.

Trivia

  • As mentioned in the Hobonichi interview, this minigame was one of the over 20 original rhythm games.
