Review: Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure

I wish we could solve all our problems by dancing them away like in Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure. Forgot my money at home and need to pay a bill? Just dance and serve food. Need to enter your dog in the dog show but missed the deadline? Well just bark in rhythm with a poodle to gain entrance. Or my favorite, if you’ve found yourself outside of a prestigious event in Paris, improperly dressed, and without a ticket for admission, simply play a few chords on the violin and bam, you’re in. Unfortunately our world isn’t full of that much pizzazz but at least we now have Rhythm King & the Emperor’s Treasure to play on our 3DS’.

Discovering why Napoleon wants to play rhythm based puzzle games and take over the world is half the fun!

My mind was set on this being Professor Layton with music games instead of puzzles. In reality, it’s more like Rhythm Heaven meets Professor Layton. Not what I was expecting, but still totally awesome!

Definitely check this one out if you’ve got a 3DS lying around.

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
