Rhythm Paradise is a game that takes tasks that often have little to do with music and turns them into a test of your musical timing.
Learning each task is simple enough, with a combination of taps and flicks of the stylus on the touch-screen however keeping up with the rhythm can be quite a challenge.
You are given a tutorial at the beginning of each round covering the basics. However, when the music starts for real, that's when it gets a little trickier.
Each action is mixed up in time to the beat and while not 'difficult' in any sense, Rhythm Paradise isn't the most forgiving game you'll ever play.
My only gripe (and its a very small one) is that the game can seem ever so fussy about the pass rate it gives you for each task. You'll feel you've done more than enough to progress, but the game will then review you effort and a "Failed, Try Again" screen, if you haven't done enough to secure a 'Superb' rating, you'll get a grudging "Just OK". Although this does add to the challenge, and makes you want to replay that mission again to get the long awaited "Superb" rating...infact I was even told on one occasion "you're good at surfing... as long as you don't stand up". Thanks for that!
All the music in the game have a very catchy tone and beat, and to put it simply - i've never played a game quite like this before, and i think is such a brilliant game - everyone should have a copy!
