Introduction[edit]

A note drops in the middle of the snare drum, and the game begins.

Musical notes are popping in on the drum, and players, who are on rubber balls, scramble to collect them in order to earn points. Silver notes are worth one point, while golden notes are worth two. Every time the player gets a note, their ball will get bigger. The player with the highest score by the end of the minigame wins.
