The player takes control of Employee #333-4-591032 who works in a candy factory. Beneath the player is a cardboard box. Using both hands, they must catch candy to drop them into the box and swat away the Treat Spiders thrown at them. When the cue "Double up!" (いくぜ!!!?, Ikuze!) is heard, the player must catch one piece of candy and smack two Treat Spiders in a row.

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The player catches the candy, sorting it into the box. Treat Spiders are slapped away to the ground, and walk back offscreen.
  • Early!/Late!: The player mistimes the catch or slap, causing the candy or Treat Spiders to fall straight down.
  • Miss...: The candy flies past the player's arms, making them shudder. Treat Spiders that fly past making them shudder even harder. Slapping candy cause it to be knocked down. Grabbing spiders causes the player to shudder, and drop the spider.

Rhythm Item

Bonus Dear Mom...
Sprite 3DS Rhythm Item Bonus.png
Item holder.png
I had an audition this week,
Mom. They didn't say anything
afterward, but I had a good
feeling. Anyway, I'm still doing
pretty well at the candy factory.
Here's this week's bonus.

Skill Star

The Skill Star appears on the bonus thrown at the very end of the game.

Challenge Land

Packing Pests appears in the following Challenge Train courses:




  • Employee #333-4-591032 bears a striking resemblance to the Munchy Monk. He slaps the spiders in a similar manner to when the monk slaps his arm, and the aside glance he gives when his face is shown is almost identical to the one at the end of Munchy Monk 2.
