''The New Zealand Story'' (also spelled ''The Newzealand Story'') is a 1988 ArcadeGame by Creator/{{Taito}}. The [[ExcusePlot story]] goes as such: Wally, a leopard seal, kidnapped all but one of the kiwis from Auckland's Zoo, including Phee-Phee, the girlfriend of Tiki (the one who managed to escape). He's selling his friends to various zoos throughout the country. Armed only with a bow and arrows, Tiki goes to the rescue!

** Or perhaps they mean "Kiwi" as in "Native person of New Zealand" and NOT "The bird that is one of the most famous things in the country".

* PutABowOnHerHead: Phee-Phee sports pink shoes and a big polka-dot bow on her head, otherwise she's identical to all other kiwis.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Tiki looks ''nothing'' like a real kiwi bird. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when in the background there are posters with the silhouette of a real kiwi. RuleOfCute, perhaps?

* WombLevel: More like a Womb Boss. The first boss is a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot pink floating snowflake-spewing whale encased in ice]] that, no matter what you do, will swallow Tiki. You then will find yourself into its stomach, and you'll have to shoot at its walls while avoiding the gastric fluids dripping, to make it explode and thus finish the level.

* ArtisticLicenceGeography: Played with - the game does actually feature real New Zealand place names in the right locations, although the locations are far more embellished than in real life.
