RetroActive 46: Rhythm Thief

It's that time again! We're doing a RetroActive in Rhythm Thief for Nintendo 3DS. You can play along with us, and post your thoughts here. It's a short game, so we hope you can join us.

Comments posted here may find their way into the episode. Given the brevity of the game, we're doing this one on a tight turnaround. Recording will happen in early February.

Rhythm Thief?  Isn't that the game that everyone said was really good, but almost nobody bothered to play?

So is anyone else playing Rhythm Thief yet? If not, you should be!

I've been short on time so haven't made much progress... but wow, the production values are great. Even though I typically don't enjoy rhythm games, the mix of Layton-esque exploration and story with a variety of different rhythm-based mini-games is a lot of fun!

Definitely a hidden gem for 3DS. It really makes me wish I had a physical copy to share the fun with my kids.

I acquired Rhythm Thief as part of a Nintendo Humble Bundle (I wish they would do another one of those). I probably would not have picked up until now otherwise. I really enjoyed it and especially enjoyed the visuals (great 3D), writing, and music. I found some of the swiping to be difficult to register but I am glad they tried something more novel than pushing buttons. I found the French setting to be interesting and would like to hear from someone familiar with French culture what they thought about this aspect of the game.
