In this single-screen platformer reminiscent of Snow Bros. and Tumblepop, players control the titular creature ZuPaPa (or, as Player 2, ZuPiPi) as they collect and throw smaller creatures (known as "Zooks") at enemies to stun them. Enemies who are being pummeled by Zooks can be touched, causing them to explode into stars that destroy (or damage) other enemies, with additional Zooks causing greater explosions.
It is one of the few games built for Neo Geo MVS hardware that were not released on either Neo Geo AES or Neo Geo CD home platforms. It was, however, later digitally re-released by HAMSTER as part of the ACA Neo Geo series on October 4, 2018 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch (with the North American PS4 version released on July 2, 2019), followed by a PC version on July 26, 2019.
Originally developed in the mid-1990's by FACE and first showcased in 1994, the game was released in 2001 as the last game before SNK's bankruptcy.
