Elite Beat Agents is a rhythm game made by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS. It is the American rendition of Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan. The player taps and drags on indicated locations on the touch screen of the DS in time to the rhythm of the music to score points, while the upper screen shows comic-style scenes of the fictional "Elite Beat Agents" cheering on others in tough situations through their dance moves.
This game is rather underrated, despite being one of the best DS games available. This game is often referred to as EBA because of it's long title.
