Gameplay
Launched into the fully 3D world of Zubalon, players meet the colorful and zany stars of the game, the Zubos. The land of Zubalon is under siege by the evil Big Head and his army of Zubo clones, the dastardly Zombos. While traveling through the game in human form, players can befriend any Zubos they meet along the way, feeding and nurturing them, helping them gain skills and strength, assisting them in chasing off the evil Zombos and in the end persuading them to join your team in strategic battles with an innovative rhythm action mechanic.

Action in Zubo is turn-based, with your team of up to three Zubos facing off against an AI or human-controlled team in multiplayer, of three Zubos. Each Zubo on your team begins the game with a particular set of battle moves. Most of these can be learned by any Zubo, but each character also possesses a unique move that can only be used by that character, making the strategy of the makeup of your team important as the game progresses. Executing battle moves is where the rhythm aspects of Zubo come into play. As a player begins a move an outline appears around the active Zubo which moves in tandem with the in-game music. As this outline meets the Zubo's body the player taps out the rhythm with the stylus to execute the move. More powerful moves require more complex use of the stylus, increasing the difficulty of the game as times goes on. With over 100 fully animated comedy battle moves, 10 areas with Zubalon to explore, plus a wealth of interactions and mini-games, Zubo offers a deeply rewarding Nintendo DS experience. This stylus-tapping adventure promises hours of entertainment kids (and adults) are sure to love.

Meet the Zubos
Zubo features over 50 Zubos spread across the game's ten play worlds that players can interact with on all levels. Each of these has a personality and story all its own. Just a few of the Zubos player will meet are:

Rising Dragon from 'Zubo' Rising Dragon
Team Hero's kung fu king, Rising Dragon packs a punch and is always ready for action and has sworn to rid Zubalon of evil.
Alice from 'Zubo' Alice
Team Fairytale's party girl, Alice has a few tricks up her sleeve. Her favorite Zubo pet is Pink Rabbit.
Boltz from 'Zubo' Boltz
Team Horror's gentle giant, Boltz is always excited to make new friends, but watch out if he tries to hug you. He doesn't know his own strength.
Pinky from 'Zubo' Pinky
Team Pop's punk superstar, Pinky takes her guitar everywhere. Can you guess what her favorite color is?
Chip from 'Zubo' Chip
The youngest Zubo on Team Fairytale, Chip is warmhearted and sees the best in everyone (except Zombos). He's often found chasing butterflies in the East Woods.
