  • Drum against your friends online!

How to Play

  • Tap the Taiko drum in sync with the notes!
    • Each song comes with its own unique note charts. Sync to the rhythm and tap the drum in accordance with the notes.
    • Each tap will be scored as GOOD, OK, or BAD depending on how well timed it is to the music note.
  •  Fill up the Soul Gauge and clear the song!
    • The Soul Gauge fills up if taps are timed to the music notes, but loses steam when they are not.
    • If the Soul Gauge is filled past the clear line when the song ends, then it’s CLEARED!
