Game Stooge writes: "Those lines have been going through my head since I picked up this little gem for the PSP. Patapon is a rhythm based 2D real time strategy game, if it has to be pigeon-holed into a genre. The goal of the game is to lead your tiny band of Patapons through 30 odd levels to get them back to their homeland. Patapon combines rhythm, strategy and beautiful art direction to deliver frantic fun at the low price of $19.99?
Patapon is such a odd duck, I don't know where to begin describing it. I picked it up on the recommendation of a few friends who were going around babbling "Pata Pata Pata Pon" incessantly. When you start up the game, the first thing you're going to notice is the art. The Minimalist Pop Art Style is amazing. I kept saying to myself, "I'd like to have that on my wall!" when new characters showed-up or I reached a new level. Take a look at the screen shots and you'll see what I mean. Everything is simple, iconic, breathtakingly beautiful and innovative."
