DescriptionThe Noid, the mascot from Domino's Pizza commercials during the 1980s, is in trouble. There is another Noid named Mr. Green, running through New York City playing practical jokes and causing trouble, but everyone is blaming the Noid for these shenanigans. Now the Noid must clear his name and save the city by catching this impostor.
It is another 2D jump and run platform for NES, but with a strange idea and cartoonish and cheerful graphics. The weird character has to beat pizza delivery boys using a yo-yo.

Japanese versionThis game was first released as 仮面の忍者 花丸 (Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru) which roughly translates into "The Masked Ninja Hanamaru". In this version of the game, you play as Hanamaru, a young masked ninja, who is sent to a children's theme park called Leisure Land, to investigate why all the children have disappeared. When he discovers that other ninjas have kidnapped the kids, Hanamaru sets out to rescue them.
TitleThe primary title for this game is Yo! Noid because Capcom teamed up with the Domino's Pizza company to promote their mascot. When this game was originally released in Japan, the Noid was nowhere to be seen.
