Brush up on your Patapon 3 skills and learn how to keep the beat with these top tips from developer Pyramid.
1. Feel the rhythm
Listen carefully and get into the rhythm of the songs in Patapon 3. This is the key to mastering the entire Patapon series on PSP. And if possible, don't forget to use your headphones. It's much easier to play the game that way.
2. Defend yourself
While attacking and dodging in Patapon 3 is important, you must learn to protect yourself in battle. If you find yourself backed into a wall at any point, be sure to use the CHAKA CHAKA rhythm, which is represented by the Triangle button.
3. Skill master
You might feel like you want to try every different class of Patapon to begin with. Don't do this. Instead, focus on developing just one of your skills in Patapon 3. By learning new skills, you could develop other classes of Patapon at the same time.
4. Armour up
Always ask yourself this question before embarking on a mission - what is the best equipment for me and my Patapon? For example, you'd be foolish to embark on a Flame Quest without equipment attributing to fire.
5. Play with a clan
In order to complete some of the tougher quests in Patapon 3 you're going to need a little help from your friends or from other PSP players via PlayStation Network. That's why it's important to form a clan or become part of one. By working together you'll be able to develop your weapon skills and more.
6. Take a break
Patapon 3 on PSP requires a lot of concentration, so if you find yourself getting tired in the middle of a long battle don't force yourself to continue. It's your duty as the Almighty to take a rest.
