Gameplay

Tapdance
Tap Trial Wii gameplay
Tap Trial 3DS gameplay

The Girl dances simultaneously with the two monkeys and must follow their signals. If the monkeys let out a small cry, it signals to tap once right afterwards. If they make two noises, then it signals to tap twice quickly afterwards. If the monkey yells as all the characters raise their arms, it signals to tap three times quickly afterwards. If the monkey yelps, it signals to tap the moment the girl and monkeys have landed a jump.

I have heard that there is a shade of
red tap shoes that will allow the
wearer access to the secret tap-
dance parties of the animal kingdom!
Are these shoes that magical color?
The only way to know is put them on!

Skill Star

After doing three double jump taps you will have triple jump tap to deal, tap the third jump perfectly to collect the star.

Trivia

  • This game has the most variations and graphical changes out of all the games in the Rhythm Heaven Series, having five different variations in its first appearance alone, and two more variants introduced in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, which brings the total of variations to 7.
    • In terms of variations, Shoot-'Em-Up beats it, but by graphical changes in general, this game beats it by one.
  • There is a small difference between versions -- for the final cue in the GBA version, the girl and the monkeys do a jump tap, followed by a head-bobbing cue which resets their animation. They stay in the pose in the other versions.
  • The monkeys appear larger in the GBA version, likely to avoid cutting down on details. In Rhythm Heaven Fever and Rhythm Heaven Megamix, they are resized to better fit the monkeys of those games, and the original artwork.
  • This game appears in the "Wario...Where?" Challenge Train Course, where the girl is replaced by Ashley and her apprentice Red can be seen riding the Giraffe.
    • Ashley makes the generic miss sound when she falls instead of making the sound the normal girl does.
  • There are two sets of unused sprites in the Fever and Megamix versions; some monkey heads which resemble the ones for the monkey in Hole in One and its sequel, and another which are longer arms for the monkeys for the triple tap cue.
