For those of you who haven't seen this game before, Rhythm Tengoku ("Rhythm Paradise" or "Rhythm Heaven") is a funny rhythm-based game, with a similar atmosphere to the Wario Ware games. You play stages one at a time, but unlike DDR, you play all the way to the end no matter how poorly you do, rather than stopping prematurely if you fail. After finishing a stage, if you get an average or good ranking, the next one is unlocked. In this video, I play the first stage "Karate House", where you time presses of the A button to make the karate guy punch objects that are tossed to him. For each object you hit correctly, a heart is added to the gauge on the left. If you just barely miss hitting an object, you lose one heart. A complete miss takes away all your hearts. If you don't have the heart gauge high enough, then you won't be able to punch the rocks away, even with the correct timing.
Rhythm Tengoku is very strict on how close you are to the beat, so even in the early levels there's not a lot of margin for error. As luck would have it, rhythm games are one of the few things I'm good at, so I beat this stage without missing any of the objects.
The video was recorded with Visual Boy Advance's AVI exporting function. I don't know why, but after the menu screen, the sound and video are out of sync. The sound effects are supposed to be one beat earlier than you'll hear them.
