Description

Let's Tap is a rhythm/party game designed by Yuji Naka featuring a variety of mini-games played by tapping one's hands rhythmically on a surface, with the Wii remote picking up the vibrations produced by tapping. It features support for up to four players.

There are five minigames available to players.

Tap Runner is 2.5D competitive platformer which has players running along an obstacle course. Rhythmic tapping makes the each character run faster and overcome obstacles such as hurdles, falling blocks, and tightropes.

Rhythm Tap is more of traditional rhythm game, in the vein of Donkey Konga or Guitar Hero, played by tapping near the Wii remote when the dots scroll from the right of the screen to the left.

Silent Blocks is a physics puzzle similar to Jenga with elements of falling block puzzles such as Dr. Mario, with flat octagonal blocks stacked on top of each other. There is a separate four-player mode that has all four players playing independently.

Bubble Voyager is a side-scrolling shoot-em-up that has you tap to shoot missiles and propel your character upwards to navigate a maze of mines. The four player mode is top down battle.

Finally, Visualizer is a non-competitive mode where the players tap to trigger on-screen effects, depending on the setting. Fireworks, drawing with splotches of paint or sumi-e, and shaking up an arena of bouncing balls are a few of the setting available in this mode.
