In this game, the player controls a doctor protecting a yellow micro-organism by stabbing viruses with forks. They use ✚ to shoot the viruses from one of four directions, depending on their placement on the map. If even a single virus gets to the end, the organism will pop.


  • ✚/Tap: Shoot left, right, up, and/or down

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The virus is stabbed by a fork. The doctor gives a V sign and blushes.
  • Early!/Late!: The virus is stabbed, but only at it's edge.
  • Miss...: The virus gets through, and kills the yellow organism, causing the doctor to turn blue in shock. Normally it respawns, but it doesn't do so in the Trials and the Endless Game where the amount of organisms represent how many lives the player has before the game is over. The player has multiple chances to vanquish the virus, though leaving it to pass through the first three tubes isn't counted as a miss.

You just can't cure diseases

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♂ GBA版でいちばん八マったのはこのゲームです。3匹のバイキンをほぼぽ同時というか、連続で倒してしまったときの快感は…もう鳥肌ものですね。これはリズムゲームの基本なんですけど、しゅぽーん、しゅぽーんとバイキンを倒していくときの気持ちよさ、アドレナリン率は僕にとってはナンバーワンです。でも、どうしてカプセルのなかにバイキンを走らせたのか、僕にはまったくわからないんですけど(笑)。 Tsunku♂: The game that I enjoyed the most on the GBA version is this one...the feeling I get when I beat three viruses almost simultaneously, or rather, in succession... it gives me goosebumps. This is a basic rhythm game, but the adrenaline rush I get when I beat the three viruses in rapid succession is the best for me. But I have no idea why they let the viruses run through the capsule (laughs).

米 とある研究者が、音楽を聴くとノリノリになる諸玉菌を発見したというストーリーなんです。その菌の効果もあって、研究者はノリノりなんですが、そんなところに悪玉菌が現れて、研究のジャマをしようとするので、研究者は顕微鏡をのぞきながら退治しようとするのが、このゲームの目的なんですね。 Yone: The story is that a certain researcher discovered bacteria that get into the flow when they listen to music. The researcher is in the groove, partly due to the effects of the bacteria, but bad bacteria appear and try to interfere with the research, so the purpose of this game is for the researcher to look through the microscope and try to get rid of them.

小黒 そんなストーリーがあったとは!(笑)だから音楽を聴くためのラジオが、机の上に置かれてたりするんですね。 Oguro: I didn't know there was such a story! (Laughs) That's why there's a radio for listening to music on the desk.
