Working Dough (はたらくまんじゅう Hataraku Manjyu?) is the 11th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 50th mingame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It is about two rookie dough dudes (characters played in this game) working to get the fuel orbs delivered along with the two veteran dough dudes. A sequel is unlocked later on called Working Dough 2.


Working Dough gameplay
Working Dough 3DS Gameplay

The player controls the dough dudes to the right of the screen. These dough dudes must copy the rhythm of the dough dudes to the left of the screen. Objects will fall on the left dough dudes as they push them up a machine, and then fall back again toward the player, who must push them as well in the exact order. The small dough jump needs to push the small orbs, while the big dough pushes the large orbs.


Rhythm Heaven Fever

  • A: Weak Jump (push small spheres)
  • A + B: Strong Jump (push large spheres)

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

Button Mode

  • A: Weak Jump (push small spheres)
  • B: Strong Jump (push large spheres)

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Weak or Strong Jump (push small or large spheres)

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The spheres will be bounced into the next compartment.
  • Barely: The sphere will be hit, but a 'doink' sound can be heard, and it will hit the edge of the next compartment and fall down. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: Not hitting a sphere will cause it to fall down off the screen. Hitting a small sphere with a strong jump will cause it to shatter to pieces, while hitting a large sphere with a weak jump will cause it to clang and fall down. If this happens, Mr Game & Watch will have crosses on its eyes and frown.

You missed a lot of jumps at the end.
GradingOK Wii
Good try.

You coped well under pressure.
Good work on the combos at the end.

Eh. Passable.

When I came to see the spaceship with my daddy, they gave me dumplings to take home--a big one and a small one. I gave the big one to my daddy.

Skill Star

When the big dough mothership shows up with the worker inside, hit the small orb perfectly to collect the star.



  • The game's premise is based off the expression "working dough", used to describe the process of kneading dough for baking. The game takes the phrase literally, with the Dough Dudes "working" in a factory.
  • Mr. Game & Watch, the mascot for Nintendo's first handheld system, makes an appearance in the background as a factory worker. He also appears in the credits with the Dough Dudes, but goes unnamed.
  • Strangely, there is a large cracked ball that appears during this game in Megamix, but this doesn't happen in Fever.
  • It is unsaid what the orbs were in the game. In the description, they're literally referred to as "thingies," stating that even the factory workers don't know.
