Released in 1992 on NES by Sunsoft, Gimmick, the action game, is back! Revisit the good old challenges of this game today, now with new features such as the Quick save&load function or the Rewind function. The time it took you to complete any stage in Normal Mode or Serious Mode is recorded at the end of the stage. You can then share the total time (the time it took you to complete the whole game) with other players online in Online Ranked mode. Additionally, you can try to unlock the 25 achievements of the game in Serious Mode. Despite its cute art style, this dynamic legendary game comes with one of the most sophisticated and popish soundtracks of the NES! Challenge yourself with this new special edition of Gimmick!

On a birthday cake, candles are swaying - the same number of candles as the years of a little girl. Today, this is her birthday. Her father, who is always busy, is free to spend the whole day with her. In fact, the girl is more excited about spending the day with her family - her mother, her father, and herself - than about the birthday party itself. 'Happy birthday!' The girl opens her present box, laughing a little.Yumetaro was wandering in a stuffed toy shop when the employee of the shop was advising the girl's father on a present. Panicked, Yumetaro hid in a pile of pink stuffed toys that looked exactly like him.Suddenly, the father stopped walking...and picked Yumetaro, who was pretending to be a stuffed toy. This is how he ended up as a present inside a box tied with ribbons.The little girl grows immediately fond of her new toy. She can't avert her gaze from him ever since she brought him into her room. The girl loves Yumetaro so much that all the other stuffed toys she received in the past years feel uneasy about this situation. They no longer feel loved. One night, the other toys suddenly come to life and take the little girl away to another dimension. Left alone, it is now up to Yumetaro to bring the little girl back.
