Rhythm Tenkogu is a 2 player music video arcade game machine in which the players have to compete in puzzle to the beats and tunes of music.
Rhythm Tengoku was developed by Nintendo and Sega, collaborating on the arcade version of this title due to it being popular amongst the development staff from Sega that worked on it. While the audio was the same, the different mechanics between arcade games and console games, adjustments had to be made.
The arcade game contains a two-player mode, where the closeness between the two players is rated at the conclusion of the game based on their performance. The format of the game is identical to the GBA version, and the games themselves are exactly the same as in the GBA version of the game, with the exception of "tempo up" mode, where the games are played at twice the regular speed.
