Tap Troupe (タップスター Tap Star) is the 31st minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever. It's about a Tall Tapper (you), performing with the Tap Troupe, a tap dancing group. Getting a perfect on this game earns the gift "At the Auditions" to read.

Gameplay

Tap Troupe Remix 10.png

In Tap Troupe, the player controls one of four Tall Tappers. The tappers' legs occupy most of the screen, while their faces are seen in the bottom left. The player must maintain a steady beat with the rest of the tappers, pressing A on every beat. At certain parts of the game, a voice off-screen will say "Rea-dy!" and the player must shift their rhythm to a 4:3 polymeter, with button presses now being on a dotted eighth note rhythm. The player must continue this rhythm until a voice saying "Tap, tap, tap!" prompts the player to return to a steady four on the floor rhythm. The final "tap" will always be on the next available beat in the original groove, regardless of where the previous two land, meaning the distance between the second and third tap will occasionally be shorter or longer. If the player successfully executes the alternate rhythm, the Tall Tappers will shout "OK!", and periodically fire off party poppers or raise "OK" hand symbols as distractions.

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The Tall Tappers continue their routine. After the female voice's complex tap cues, the Tall Tappers will gleefully yell out "Okay!". Additionally, halfway through the game the Tall Tapper on the left of the group will bring out a confetti popper which launches confetti. During the last few moments of the rhythm game, the Tall Tappers will wave their arms up with their hands in an OK sign.
  • Early!/Late!: A small 'tick' sound is heard when tapping off beat. The other Tall Tappers will glare at the player's Tall Tapper, annoyed. During practice, the Tall Tappers will glance over at the player.
  • Miss...: The other Tall Tappers will blow a raspberry and make an embarrassed face at the player's Tall Tapper. During practice, the Tall Tappers will glance over at the player.

Two-Player Mode

TapTroupe2Pgameplay.png

A version of the game can be unlocked in the two player mode. It is the seventh game in it, and requires the completion on the original game and the previous two-player game, Launch Party.

The game has the first player on the far right, wearing blue shoes, and the second player on the left, wearing orange shoes. Both players have to tap along with the other two tappers. There is no main differences from the main game's pattern, other than spotlights at certain times to obscure view.
