Niko Niko Pun is a cute platform game based on a Japanese TV series. The protagonists of the game are a cat, a bird and a mouse who one day arrive on an island where they find a cute little pink dragon. The poor thing is starving and they all decide to help him and escort the animal through several stages to collect his favorite food (displayed at the bottom of the screen). Failing to do so gets them to start the stage all over again until they succeed. Once fed, the dragon grows bigger and then it is time to explore another area and look for his next lunch. Our heroes can't die and only jump over their opponents. Finally, each stage hides a lot of surprises and doors scattered around the game lead to picture-puzzles.
