Product Description

Enter the world of the Patapons, a small, yet brave noble tribe. Behind the Patapons' cute exterior, lies a fierce warrior spirit that can only be commanded by the beat of your war drum. For years the Patapon tribe has lived in the desolate frontier, driven from their home by the evil Zigoton army. The Patapons wait for the day that the "rhythm god" will return, to bring them back to their homeland, to defeat their enemies and to lead them to the edge of their world. Finally, their wait has come to an end. Lead a small lost tribe to the edge of their world with the beat of your war drum and grow them into an army of warriors. Using simple drum beats, command your tribe to march, attack, and defend themselves against fierce beasts, gigantic monsters, and the evil Zigoton army. Watch as your tribe grows in strength and numbers as they progress through this adventure. Unlock a variety of warrior types from infantry to cavalry, archers to spear-men and maximize them for battle with a variety of weapon and shield upgrades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patapon - The Drum beats on 14 July 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We all know the Japanese to be a bunch of folks that enjoy strange TV programs such as Endurance, Takeshi's Castle (and probably nearly every other Japanese program :-)). We all know the French to be a bunch that like looking at odd Artworks. Well here is an example of what happens when the French and Japanese decide to make a game together. Extremely strange 2D art combine with extremely weird yet compelling and strangely addictive gameplay. Ignore the 1 star reviews try the demo and if you like the demo you'll love this game. However it appears that it might be a Marmite game, i.e. you're either going to love it or hate it. Most people however seem to love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little game. 15 April 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my most favourite game for my Psp, at the moment.
Basically, you are an almighty god to a tribe of eyeball-like beings.
It's your task as their god, to make different beats with four different drums.
Each of the Psp's buttons acts as one of the four drums.

Different beats command your tribe to do different things.
Like: Advance, defend, retreat, attack etc..
You must guide the small clan through several levels, battling not only huge bosses.
But also another tribe called the Zigotons. (the baddies)

It doesn't sound like much of a game, but it REALLY is VERY addictive.
I found myself returning to the game every five minutes.
This really is worth getting.
The graphics, colours and animation is well done indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive fun!!! 27 Mar 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently bought this game, and I haven't put it down since! The game is controlled with 4 buttons, which you beat in different rhythms to control your army of pons. There's lots of fun to be had playing all the little side games, and the cute graphics add to the game's fun. The music is completely random and you just get lost in the beat!!! (Look out for the dancing tree ,UBO BON...) I've been playing this game for nearly 8 hours, and I'm nowhere near finishing, so this game offers plenty of playing time. At times, this game is quite challenging, and it takes a certain amount of skill to navigate some battles! However, this offers fun for all, and I would seriously recommend this game to anyone! Worth the money in my opinion, and one of the most enjoyable titles on the PSP!

4.0 out of 5 stars Patapownage 12 Mar 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In the summer of 2006, LocoRoco was released for the PSP - and with precious little in the way of fanfare. With the exciting launch of the first next-gen console to anticipate and a crowded release calendar which included new instalments of such venerable franchises as Half-Life, Tomb Raider, Splinter Cell and Final Fantasy, it wasn't a surprise to see this excellent new IP fall under most gamers' radar. Today, however, it stands shoulder to shoulder with Katamari Damacy as among the most unique and innovative platformers to come to video games in decades. Its simple yet distinctive aesthetic proves uniquely appealing, while its gravity-oriented gameplay mechanics are a breath of fresh air next to more traditional fare. LocoRoco is a brief thrill, admittedly, but an unforgettable one nonetheless, and considering how much it has in common with Patapon, one can only hope that Japan studio's latest proves able to carve out a more appealing fate. And let it be said: this game demands your recognition.

Patapon won't be for everyone. Simple rhythm-game controls belie an experience that is equal parts God game and real-time strategy, but it straddles these genres with such conviction you'd be forgiven for thinking its creators have made such games before; assuredly, they have not, and Patapon is all the better for their invigorating new approach. You do not so much control the titular creatures - a tribe of eyeballs with legs, fallen on hard times - as inspire them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great original game 29 Feb 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the kind of game that gives you a real treat when you play it. It's cutesy and beautifully bizarre exterior hides an addictive system of upgrading and breeding your Patapon's. I highly recomment this game to anyone. It's great fun being the almighty drum god.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 15 April 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing video games for over 15 years and this is without a doubt the most refreshing, new, exciting and barking mad game I have played in many, many years.

Read the publishers description and other reviews as I am lost for words that really describe this game accurately.

I have take my PSP with me on work travel and have found myself frantically drumming away on a plane, not noticing that everybody was staring at me - it's just so additive.

I find myself walking around the supermarket singing 'pon pon pata pon'

This is the 1st review I have written on this site. BUY THIS GAME...NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pon Pon Pata Pon 9 Jan 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I never considered myself to be the type of person to like the press-a-button-to-the-beat type of guy, but about a year back when I first played Guitar Hero 3 on a friends consol, I changed my mind. So much so that I thought I might give it a shot without on a handheld without a an instrument to pretend I can play.

Once again I found myself drawn completely in.
This game is fun and innocent in the extreme. To the point where the little Patapons say things like "lets smack their bottoms" when they attack. Its a damn cute game.

I should add that when playing this, dont do it in a public place like a bus or train, you will look a fool as you bounce around while the Patapons chant the beat you drum up for them.
You wont be able to help it.

Its a fantastic little game that offers you something in the way of a war/strategy game as well as the God genre in games like Black and White where you build a community, bring back those who have died with Kerching (money) and go hunting to feed your people.

Everything about this game is fun.
Sheer enjoyment for enjoyments sake.
