Night Walk (ナイトウォーク Naito Woku?) is the 20th game in Rhythm Tengoku and the 92nd game in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, you are controlling Play-Yan who must stroll through the path in the night sky while jumping on magical boxes. A sequel is unlocked later in Rhythm Tengoku called Night Walk 2.

Gameplay

Nw
Nightwalks

As Play-Yan lands on the path, boxes will be seen below him. This is a visual cue to jump. Press A button to jump on a box. Successfully doing this will open the boxes and make them blossom into various things such as hearts, lollipops, and umbrellas. The more boxes are open, the more stars will appear at the sky in order to reach the goal. The player will fall off before reaching the goal if enough boxes are left unopened before then.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: Jump

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Jump

Timing Notes

  • Hit: Play-Yan jumps from the box, sending out a plant with either a heart, lollipop, or umbrella on it.
  • Barely: Play-Yan will jump, but the heart and jump will be lower then a Hit and the text "NG", possibly standing for "Not Good" will appear. A Barely counts as a Miss.
  • Miss: Play-Yan will walk by the box, sending out a music note. This does not actually count as a miss on its own. If the player does not jump from a box on the edge of a platform, the character will fall off the platform. If this happens, the game will immediately end, giving you a "Try Again" rating. This can also happen if you don't open enough boxes before the goal, in which the goal will not open, and Play-Yan will walk past it to eventually fall off.

Trivia

  • The music for this rhythm game was taken from the GBA accessory the Play-Yan.
  • Play-Yan's design in this game appears to have influence on later characters. (i.e. Marshal, Miss Ribbon, Cam, The Chorus Kids, etc.)
  • The Rhythm Tengoku website calls this game's character Play-Yan. Play-Yan was a game for the Gameboy Advance that allowed you to play music.
  • Play-Yan appears in The Dazzles from Rhythm Heaven, hanging onto one of the stars that appear after certain correct poses. He also appears in Rhythm Heaven Fever, being on the books on one of the "OK, it's on!" cheers from the Cheer Readers sections of Remix 7.
  • Both versions of the game stand out as one of the few games in the franchise to have the ability to fail instantly before judging your performance, with Quiz Show being the only other one.
  • Night Walk makes a cameo appearance in the Nintendo 3DS Sound software as a background picture. Play-Yan's climbing speed depends on how the speed of the song is adjusted.
  • The layout of the steps are randomized on every playthrough.
  • This is one of the few games that doesn't feature a practice the series, however it did receive a tutorial in the arcade version, and a practice in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.
