The only negative is no, you can't pause the game. But you can put your PSP in sleep mode and it leaves it as it is. So, if you need to stop playing in the middle it's really no problem.
The game is overall fun, original and worth your time. Especially considering all the game has to offer along with the price, it's well worth the money. You can also try it before you buy at the PSN store. The demo is free to try and if you complete it you even get a bonus weapon. Try this game out, you will not regret it.
Basically, you have to memorize different pattens of drumming (pressing the action buttons) in order to command the Patapons to advance, attack, etc.
It can get challenging trying to remember which command to send the Patapons while they're in the midst of battle, especially since the fight is real-time (i.e., the game doesn't pause to wait for you to drum a command, and your Patapons are taking a beating until you get the right pattern).
As you progress, you get access to new drum patterns, better armor, weapons, and Patapons (archers, hunters, and warriors). It's not a simple hack-n-slash game though; it has some strategic elements (for example, you should keep archers in the back and warriors in the front, but it's up to you to find the most efficient formation of your Patapon fighters) and you must feed and nurse your army with hunting sessions, which allows you to practice your drum patterns without fear of killing off your entire army.
Overall, this is a wonderfully smooth and well thought-out non-3D game that hints at Adobe Flash-style flat animation with a little Samurai Jack artistry tossed in for extra appeal and a cool new take on rhythm games.
Even better, you can download the demo onto your PSP before you buy the game so you can check it out before shelling out the (amazingly low) $[...]. The demo is on the official Patapon site: [...]
This game gets 5 stars for fun, 5 stars for value, and 5 stars for ingenuity.
Part rythm, part puzzle, part rpg, Patapon mashes together bits and pieces of several genres. It's a shallow dash of each, but it's there, and it works. The design is simplistic and flat, but it's beautiful. Nothing seems out of place in this world. If you've read other reviews you probably know the premice of the game. You build an army of little cyclopian soldiers of various jobs and abilities and march them through their enemies to the promised land. You create your armies from the ground up by combining various materials you get from mini games and missions. The creation screen will place the default ingredients (two for each type of patapon.) but you can replace these with higher quality items you've found to make more powerful Rarepons. You'll also get better equipment to outfit your armies in while on your missions. Patapons are controlled by using an 8 beat rythm using a combination of the Cirle, Triangle, Square, and X buttons. You play four beats, the patapons sing their reply for four beats and so on. The catch is there's a tempo you have to follow, your button presses must match with the beat flashing around the border of the screen. Keep up well enough and/or hit a high enough combo and they'll enter fever mode. Fever greatly increases the Patapons attributes. Miss a beat though and you're back to normal Patapons until you can pick it up again via combos.Read more ›
