series of jumps in the starlight?

The arrange version, Night Walk 2, appears in Technician in Rhythm Tengoku.

In this game, the player takes control of Play-Yan who strolls through the path in the night sky while jumping on magical boxes. As he reaches the set of boxes via balloons, he begins walking on them. Passing though them causes the boxes to open, with the dot in the middle turning into various things depending on the player's timing and the boxes themselves. Jumping off the block with the right timing causes an object to sprout, and a star to grow in the sky. If all of the stars are at their max size at the end of the game, the final box releases a small star which Play-Yan grabs on to.


  • Ⓐ/Tap: Jump

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!?: Play-Yan jumps from the box, spawning either magical flower with a heart blossom, a lollipop, or an umbrella from it.
  • Early!/Late!?: Play-Yan jumps from the box, but the object comes out only halfway, with a red X over it.
  • Miss...?: Play-Yan walks over the box, sending out a music note. In Rhythm Tengoku, 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, Play-Yan will grab the ledge, and fall down as the platforms dissapear. If this happens, the game ends with a "Try Again". If the player didn't open enough boxes to fill the sky with stars, the final platform doesn't release anything, leading Play-Yan to jump onto a lone platform with no path to continue, resulting in him falling down.

Supposedly these flowers grow
in the footsteps of a mysterious,

night! Who is he? What does he
want? Where did he learn his
impeccable sense of rhythm?

Skill Star

Challenge Land

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♂ 最初にこれをやったとき、そんなアホな!と思いました。最後にゴールにたどり着くと、飛んでいくだけやん。オチがないやんって(笑)。しかも、単純にリズムに合わせて押すだけで、僕らから言わせるとめちゃ基本中の基本なんですけど、難しいと感じる人もけっこういて…。絵に惑わされて失敗するので、目をつぶってやったほうがうまくいくでしょうね。これで、音楽ゲームの常識が覆えりましたね。敵は出てこないし、最後は飛んでいくだけだし(笑)。 Tsunku♂: When I first did this, I thought it was such a stupid idea! When you reach the goal at the end, you just fly away. There's no ending, I thought (laughs). Moreover, you simply press the button in time to the rhythm, which, from our point of view, is the most basic of basics, but there were quite a few people who found it difficult... They are misled by the pictures and make mistakes, so you will probably do better if you try it with your eyes closed. This game has changed the conventional wisdom of music games. There are no enemies, and at the end you just fly away (laughs).

小黒 僕はつんく♂の曲とグラフィックが、イメージどおりだと思いました。 Oguro: I thought Tsunku♂'s music and graphics were exactly what I imagined.

米 DSやGBAで使える「プレイやん」というデジタルオーディオプレイヤーがあって、そのキャラを使いました。もともとはエンドレスのゲームだったんです。失敗して落ちるまでは終わらないみたいな。でも、1本のゲームとして入れることになって、終わりをつくらないといけないので、飛んでいくオチにしました。いいじゃないですか、飛んでも(笑)。 Yone: There was a digital audio player called "Play-Yan" that could be used with the DS and GBA, and I used that character. It was originally an endless game. It seems like it doesn't end until you fail and fall off. But when we decided to include it as a single game, we had to create an ending, so we decided to make it a flying punchline. It's fine if it flies away (laughs).


  • This is one of the few games that doesn't feature a Practice in Rhythm Tengoku, however it did receive a tutorial in the arcade version, and a practice in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.
  • The layout of the steps in the middle of the game is randomized.
  • The objects that appear out of the boxes act as instruments in the song. The heart flowers add drums, the lollipops being snares, and the umbrellas - cymbal accents.
  • This game, Quiz Show, Night Walk 2, and Night Walk in Rhythm Heaven Fever, are the only Rhythm Games that can be ended prematurely before the song is finished.
