Working Dough 2 (元祖 はたらくまんじゅう?, Ganzo Hataraku Manjū), known as Working Dough 2 (はたらくまんじゅう2 ?, Hataraku Manjū 2) in Rhythm Heaven Fever, is the 2nd Rhythm Game of Stage 8 (37th overall) in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 3rd of Tibby's Mom (88th overall) in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.

The long version, Working Dough, appears in Stage 3 in Rhythm Heaven Fever and in Donut Tower in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.

In this game, the Dough Dudes, now in teapots resting on a red platform with an umbrella on it, are tasked with moving fuel orbs in the middle of a bamboo forest. Mr. Game & Watch is now dressed in a purple robe and hat and is standing on bamboo, his appearance now resembling that of Judge. Near the end of the game, the rocket is replaced with what resembles a woman drinking tea, and several Space-Rabbits follow it after it launches.

The game's core gameplay stays the same; moving fuel orbs as they come along by following the co-worker's pattern. The main difference is in pattern design and spacing. While Working Dough has quicker, larger patterns with little space inbetween, Working Dough 2 has short patterns with larger breaks. This makes the game slower paced, and requires the player to adapt to the new pauses.

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The player transports the orbs successfully. They can be seen moving down a conveyer belt in the background, going into a tube to fuel a ship.
  • Early!/Late!: The player hits the orb off the rhythm, making a "doink" sound. It goes up to the compartment, but doesn't quite reach, and falls down.
  • Miss...: The player doesn't jump, causing the orb to fall down. Doing a big jump for a small orb causes it to shatter, while doing a small jump for a big orb causes it to fall down. In any of these scenarios, Mr. Game & Watch makes a pained expression.

I came to see the spaceship
with my son, and they gave him
some dumplings to take home--
a big one and a small one. He
gave me the big one, because
he's the cutest thing ever.

Skill Star

The Skill Star appears on the lone orb right after the lady dough rises in the background.
