Rhythm games have been around for quite awhile. With Final Fantasy Theatrhythm and Rhythm Thief released in 2012, what could possibly make this entry by the Pokémon creators, Game Freak, so special? With this digital download costing on the eShop hitting $14.99, potential players may be skeptical of buying a title other than the familiar Pokémon franchise.
The game uses the classic platformer format wherein Tempo, the hero wielding the staff, runs toward the goal while collecting notes, bashing enemies and background percussion instruments while dodging pitfalls and obstacles. Of course, a few other playable characters make appearances from time to time for a change of pace through some courses.
