Timing Notes

  • Hit: The Huebird will step and jump in time with the others.
  • Barely: The Huebird will go offbeat while steping or jumping depending on if the player was too early or late. A barely counts as a hit.
  • Miss: The Huebird bumps into the bird in front of or behind him, looking surprised while the other bird looks annoyed. This may switch the footing pattern if the player continues without anymore breaks.

  • The name 'Flock Step' is a possible reference to Rhythm Heaven's Lockstep.
    • Further examined, both games objective's are to step in rhythm in a group.
  • The Huebirds later appear in the Night Walk credits game, flying by in a huge flock partway through it.
  • In Rhythm Heaven Fever, both this minigame and Tap Trial have the same Superb message "It feels good to belong", except that Flock Step's Superb message has a full stop at the end while Tap Trial's has an exclamation point.
  • According to debug notes found in the files of Rhythm Heaven Megamix, this game, Board Meeting, Fork Lifter, Double Date, Cheer Readers and Packing Pests would have its story mode variant added in that game but got cut for unknown reasons.
