Eat Beat: Dead Spike-san (イートビート デッドスパイクさん) is a rhythm game released for Android and iOS in 2015. It also received a port on the Nintendo Switch in 2018.

Story

Once upon a time, in an unnamed Hierarchical City, was Ragna and Dead Spike-san. Ragna, as hard as he fought, never seemed to win...

Dead Spike-san, witnessing defeat after defeat, had a bright idea. If he ate more, maybe he could become stronger...? Dead Spike-san and Ragna set off on an epic(?) journey.[5]

Gameplay

The controls are simple -- tap the screen to the beat, when food passes by. The more Dead Spike-san eats, the more he grows![6][7]
English Title Screen
The game is a simple two-button rhythm game. Dead Spike sits on the left of the screen as food slides in from the right of the screen, accompanied by a band of orange or blue beneath it. Tap or tap and hold the corresponding L or R button when the food reaches Dead Spike to command Dead Spike to eat it. Help Dead Spike-san eat food to the beat of music to rack up points and grow stronger.

As you eat food, the Overdrive gauge at the bottom slowly fills up. When it is full, you can tap to activate Overdrive mode. In Overdrive, any food Dead Spike eats will provide more points than usual.

The tutorial gives the following instructions:

When you see [R] coming your way, tap to the beat.
When you see [L] coming your way, tap to the beat.
When you see [R] coming your way, tap and hold to the beat.
When you see [L] coming you way, tap and hold to the beat.
Tap rapidly!
You lose HP when you miss.
Game is over when HP reaches zero.
This gauge will gradually accumulate as you tap on the beats correctly.
When the gauge is full, tap here to activate the OVERDRIVE mode.
You can change the settings to activate OVERDRIVE mode automatically.
Eat as much as you can to the beat!
