Working Dough 2 (元祖はたらくまんじゅう Ganso Hataraku Manjuu), known in Rhythm Heaven Fever as Working Dough 2 (はたらくまんじゅう2 Hataraku Manjuu 2) is the 37th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 88th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It is the sequel to Working Dough. Rather than launching a ship, the dough dudes are tasked with assisting the space rabbits and Lady Dough in their return to the moon.

Gameplay

Working Dough 2 gameplay
Working Dough Origins gameplay

The game's background is now a bamboo forest, with the Dough Dudes (now in teapots) resting on a red platform with an umbrella on it. Mr. Game and Watch is now dressed in a purple robe and hat and is standing on bamboo. Near the end of the game, the rocket resembles a woman drinking tea, and several alien bunnies follow it after it launches.

The game's core gameplay stays the same; you need to bounce the balls as they fall to your side by following the pattern of the other worker's. The game's main difference is in pattern design and spacing. While Working Dough had quicker, larger patterns with little space between hits, Working Dough 2 has short patterns with larger breaks between them. This makes the game slower paced, and requires the player to adapt to the new pauses.

Controls

Rhythm Heaven Fever

  • A: Weak Jump (push small spheres)
  • A + B: Strong Jump (push large spheres)

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

Button Mode

  • A: Weak Jump (push small spheres)
  • B: Strong Jump (push large spheres)

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Weak or Strong Jump (push small or large spheres)

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The spheres will be bounced into the next compartment.
  • Barely: The sphere will be hit, but it will hit the edge of the next compartment and fall down.
  • Miss: Not hitting a sphere will cause it to fall down off the screen. Hitting a small sphere with a strong jump causes it to shatter while hitting a large sphere with a weak jump causes it to clang and fall down.

Big Dough
So CUTE!
I came to see the spaceship with my son, and they gave him some dumplings to take home-- A big one and a small one. He gave me a big one because he's the cutest thing ever.

Skill Star

The music will go silent and birds will begin chirping in the background. There will be one fuel ball that passes by, and you must hit it perfectly to obtain the star.

Appearances

Trivia

  • The bunnies that appear near the end of the game are actually "Alien Bunnies", characters from the WarioWare series, another series worked on by the developers of the Rhythm Heaven series. This isn't the first time they've appeared in the series, either; they also were used in reskins of Marching Orders for Remix 7 and Remix 8 of Rhythm Tengoku.
  • The giant lady dough's appearance has been changed in the Korean version as she has a long ribbon attracted to her back, and pink outfit.
