Differences between the normal version and the Plus version

  • The Plus version includes many enhancements than the normal version.
  • Songs can be download as downloadable content.
  • Online rankings are exclusively to the Plus version only.
  • Although it is a free app, but players need to purchase the song packs in order to play this game.


Symbols moving horizontally along a timeline show the player what to tap and when. Blue symbols indicate that the drum should be tapped outside of the drum's face (representing the rim of the drum). Red symbols indicate that the face of the drum should be tapped. The drum can be tapped on the left and/or right side. The symbols can be either large or small. Large symbols indicate that the drum should be tapped on both sides simultaneously, and small symbols indicate that the drum should be tapped on either side. A large blue symbol thus means that the left and right rim should be tapped at the same time.

Subtitles under the symbols give the pronunciation of the sounds (for example, "do don do don") using a traditional system called kuchi shoga (口唱歌).

The player needs to accomplish at least 65% of the drum chart to pass, and the harder levels (hard and Oni mode) and modifiers (e.g.: hidden mode) require much skill and chart recognition.

As a feature specific to iOS, the game allows players to login to a Twitter account to post scores.
