At the start of each battle you input specific sequences using the controller buttons to represent each "talking drum". These sequences order the tribe to move forward on the linear battlefield, attack, defend, and other actions.
If the player inputs an unknown sequence or enters them off the main rhythm, the tribe will become confused and stop whatever they are doing. However, repeatedly entering a proper sequence in sync with the rhythm will lead the tribe into a "Fever" increasing their attack and defensive bonuses.

It's a good game to introduce players to light combat because of the cartoon visuals and music-rhythm aspect of play.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE with mild cartoon violence.
10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The timed attacks and related strategy makes this better for older children.
