Excerpt: What is a Patapon, you ask? A one-eyed cartoon tribes-person, who lives only to follow the commands sent through the rhythmic thumps of four drums. These hapless minions are led by drumbeats from the “Almighty” (i.e. you); who makes them do everything from walking and fighting to performing the odd rain dance by beating on the main keypad. Thankfully, your rhythm needn’t be spot on, or this would be impossible.
