Fork Lifter (くしざし Kushizashi?, Skewer) is the 6th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 100th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, you are playing a boy who eats dinner by stabbing peas flown across the table with his Fork.

Gameplay

Fork Lifter Gameplay
Fork Lifter 3DS

The player controls a person's hand holding a fork in the front of a wide blank table. On the other side of the table, a hand is show through a zooming bubble. When the game starts, the hand will flick pieces of food (mostly pea-like objects, with a mini-hamburger being sent in parts at one point) towards the fork. The player will have to get the right timing and spear the food on the fork as it zooms towards it. If food is successfully caught, it stays on the fork until three or four pieces are on it, in which the hand will lift and the person will eat the food. The speed the peas move at is always the same, but how many and the spacing between them varies.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: Stab food

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Stab food

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The fork will spear the food precisely on the center prong. If all the food on a forkful is gotten this way, the person will gulp down the food when it is eaten.
  • Barely: The food will be caught in between two prongs, the two depending on if it was speared too early or late. If a piece of food is on a forkful this way, the person will cough when the food is eaten. A barely counts as a miss in this game.
  • Miss: The food will zoom past the fork.

A Spoon's Reflection
As Fork struggled with the beans, Spoon sat, unused, in a drawer, reflecting on how much better suited it was to the job at hand. If it had tear ducts, it would have cried.

Skill Star

The Skill Star can be collected when you stab the mini hamburger in three parts with right timing that appears near the end of the game.

A version of the game can be unlocked for the two-player mode. It is the first game in the mode, and is unlocked along with the two-player menu by beating the original game. The game has the first player using a blue fork, and the second using an orange fork. The hand will flick food at both of the players' forks, requiring them to stab the food. For most of the game, the food will be flicked at the same time by the hand, and the players can stab at the same time. Later in the game, the hand will flick to only one player at a time, with the unneeded fork going off the screen.
