The camera shows some of the surrounding area in a jungle before panning to the arena itself where the players and Ukikis are.


The players must chase and grab red, brown, blue, and gray Ukikis and give them to the adult Ukikis of the matching colors to earn points within the time limit. Each adult Ukiki is positioned in one of the screen's corners. At some point during the game, one golden Ukiki, worth three points, shows up. This Ukiki can be returned to any adult Ukiki, though it is considerably faster than its counterparts and does not stop moving until it is caught. If one of the adult Ukikis screams out, the Ukikis of the same color freeze, giving players a chance to get them. The player with the most points after 30 seconds wins.


The four players line up in the center of the area, with winners standing in front. Winners do their winning animations while losers do their losing animations.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Grab/Release
