Catch the Beat Elements


There are 4 different kind of fruit in Catch the Beat and these can be skinned separately. These are not colored they just gives the shape.

  • apple
  • pear
  • grapes
  • orange

They has an overlay as well so be sure to include these as well to color the previously mentioned fruits.

In addition to the fruits you can skin the droplets during sliders as well. Though sadly the smaller ones will be just resized from the original.



This is the newest added skinable element in Catch the Beat. Named as fruit-bananas but it is actually for the spinners.



Catch the Beat got its own special comboburst as well which will only shows up at this game mode and did not affect the rest. You can even use different images than in the other modes.



The fruit catcher has three states:

  • fail - missed a fruit
  • idle - idling
  • kiai - used when kiai mode is enabled

Ryuuta was the previous mascot for Catch the Beat, now replaced by Yuzu.
