One Paragraph Review: Rhythm Heaven

by Mitchell Dyer


Rhythm Heaven’s presentation gives it the illusion of variety. There are a ton of catchy tracks to play, each presented as its own unique mini-game. But the execution is limited to stabs and swipes on the touch screen that often end up in repeated failure as a result of extreme difficulty. The Remix tracks are particularly gruesome tests of patience. They amount to an offbeat amalgamation of earlier efforts, combining five mediocre levels into one incomprehensible mess. Yet Rhythm Heaven kept me coming back to ace songs and earn medals, if only to unlock relaxing, mindless distractions from the difficult, tap-happy tunes.
