Technically does what it says

Reviewed By: thanksgoogle on 05 Apr 2021

It should be noted that the whole game cannot be played just with buttons using this patch. Only the rhythm games themselves can be controlled with buttons; menus or tapping the screen to progress messages or tutorials still need to be controlled with the touch screen. But for the most part, this patch fulfills its purpose, since some feel that “flicking” is less responsive than pushing a button, especially on emulators.

The only minor improvements I can think of that could be added would be for the “tap” function to work outside of games, and letting the Select button skip tutorials as in the other Rhythm Haven games. I imagine it wouldn’t be feasible to make menu navigation compatible with buttons without significantly reprogramming the game, so that is fine as is.

This review originally stated that you could not play games like Love Lizards or Love Lab in which you need to move the stylus up and down, but that is not the case. These games can be played by holding Y or A and pressing L or R.
