ZuPaPa! is a 2D platformer, completed in 1994, but released after years in 2001. The game is very similar to Nightmare In The Dark. The player character Zupapa is a blue, cute creature, walking and jumping in small levels and eliminating the enemies there. He can use "Zupipis" - little creatures that can immobilize opponents. Four Zupipis are available - green, blue, orange and purple. After defeating all the enemies, the player goes to the next level.

ZuPaPa! has nine stages, six selectable from the start. At the end of each stage, a boss fight awaits.

Original release plans

ZuPaPa! was originally shown at the AOU Exposition in Japan in 1994 with a planned release that year, but was quietly cancelled. Its surprise release in 2001 came as SNK was declaring bankruptcy.
