Gameplay

Screenshot Wii Tap Troupe.png

In this game, the player controls one of The Tall Tappers. The tappers' legs occupy most of the screen, while their faces are seen in the bottom left. The player must maintain a steady beat of tap dancing with the rest of the tappers.

At certain parts of the game, a voice says "Rea-dy!" indicating a rhythm change. The player must shift to a 4:3 polymeter rhythm. This continues until the voice says "Tap, tap, tap!", signaling the rhythm is going to change back. The final "tap" is always on the next available beat in the original groove, regardless of where the previous two land, meaning the distance between the second and third tap is occasionally shorter or longer.

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The player taps in time with the others. When changing back to the regular rhythm, the player taps extra hard, and The Tall Tappers gleefully say "OK!". Halfway through the game, the tapper on the left also brings out a confetti popper, and a little after tappers wave their arms up with their hands in an OK sign.
  • Early!/Late!: The player taps off the beat, making a "tick" sound. The others look annoyed at the player. During Practice, they glance over with embarrassed looks on their faces instead.
  • Miss...: The player taps at the wrong time or doesn't tap at all. The others blow a raspberry and make a disapproving face at the player. During Practice, they glance over with embarrassed looks on their faces instead.
