The game revolves around the Moai Kids, two moai that live on an island. The player controls the female moai, and must repeat the sounds made by the male moai. The sounds consist of a "doo-wop" sound and a shout.


  • Tap: Shout
  • Tap (Hold): "Doo" (Start long note)
  • Tap (Release): "Wop" (End long note)

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!?: The player sings correctly.
  • Early!/Late!?: The player sings slightly off sync, though there is no indication of this.
  • Miss...?: The player sings way off sync or doesn't sing at all. The male moai is visibly annoyed. Bird droppings also fall on the female Moai, unless it happens during the Practice.

The following is commentary given on the STAFF'S VOICE section of the booklet included in Rhythm Tengoku Zen Kyoku-shu.

Japanese Translation
つんく♂ これ、すごくヤバイですよね。「うーあ」って、ついマネしたくなっちゃう。失敗したら頭にフンをかけられるし、ホンマにアホですよね(笑)。普通の感覚だと、こんなゲームはつくれないです。DS版では「しゅぎょう」の次に好きなゲームです。 Tsunku♂: This is so bad. It makes me want to say, "Ooh-ah," and imitate them. If you make a mistake, you get poo poured on your head. It is my second favorite game on the DS after "Munchy Monk".

小黒 普通、サウンドだけを聴くと、軽やかにダンスをしたりするイメージになると思うつんですけど、出てくるのは重いモアイですからね。しかも、本来なら動かないはずのモアイが地面に潜っちゃってるし(笑)。 Oguro: Normally, when you listen to the sound alone, you would think of light dancing, but it is heavy moai that appear. Moreover, the moai, which are supposed to be motionless, are actually coming out of the ground (laughs).

米 登場するのは男モアイと女モアイで、男の子の名前は「モアイオ」、女の子の名前は「モアイコ」と言います。もともとは、王様が向がかい合って座つっていて、後ろに立っている使いの者が、王様の口を押さえて交互にしゃべらせるようなゲームだったんです。でも、あるとき突然、モアイと入れ替わってしまって(笑)。そこで、ひと言で会話している感じを出そうということで、モアイオは「うーあ」と「うーあ」を短くした「わ」、モアイコは「る一あ」と「ら」と言うようにしました。ちなみにモアイオの声は僕です(笑)。 Yone: Male and female moai appear, with the boy's name being "Moaio" and the girl's name being "Moaiko". Originally, the game had a king that would be sitting on the ground with his head in his hands, and a messenger standing behind him would hold the king's mouth and make him speak in turn. But one day, it was suddenly replaced with a moai (laughs). So, in order to give the feeling of having a conversation in one word, Moaio says "Ooh-ah" with "Ooh-ah" being shortened to "Wa", and Moaiko says "Roo-ah" and "Rah". By the way, I'm the voice of Moaio (laughs).
