Guitar Hero: On Tour is a music video game developed by Vicarious Visions and published by RedOctane and Activision. It's the first Guitar Hero game made for a handheld game system. To play, players use Slot 2 (the bottom loading slot of the DS) to attach a device with red, green, blue, and yellow buttons on it. The player uses those four keys to play the game.

Gameplay[change | edit source]

The gameplay of Guitar Hero: On Tour is like the other Guitar Hero games where the player strums and hits the fret buttons when the notes appear on the screen.
