''Kickle Cubicle'' (known in Japan as ''Meikyū Jima'', "Mystery Island") is a top-down action puzzle game by Creator/{{Irem}} that was released for arcades in 1988 and for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem in 1990. The game's hero Kickle goes around levels freezing enemies and setting up ice pillars on his mission to collect Dream Bags.

The premise of the NES version (the arcade version has a different plot) is that the Wicked Wizard King has turned the Fantasy Kingdom into ice, captured its palaces and princesses, and locked the people inside Dream Bags, leaving it up to Kickle to liberate the kingdom's four lands (Garden Land, Fruit Land, Cake Land, Toy Land) from icy slumber.

!!Tropes:
* ActionBomb: Sparky.
* AnIcePerson: Kickle, who freezes enemies with his breath.
* {{Balloonacy}}: Kickle's method of travel in the NES version is a single red balloon.
* BareYourMidriff: Princess Lutea of Fruit Land.
* BlockPuzzle: Once frozen into blocks, Noggles can be pushed around and into water to form bridges.
* CluckingFunny: In Garden Land, there is a chicken enemy named Max. Also, the boss of Garden Land is a giant chicken named Koke.

* DropInNemesis: Run out of time and a giant yellow star called Striker swoops in for an almost instant kill.
* ExtendedGameplay: After beating the game, there is a "Special Game" with 30 additional, more difficult levels.
* FlyingOnACloud: Kickle does so between stages in the arcade version.
* FrictionlessIce: Surprisingly averted. The game does feature "slippery ice," but all it means is areas where [[TheGoomba Noggles]] can't walk across and Kickle can't make ice pillars.
* GiantMook: The bosses for the first three worlds are giant versions of a {{Mook}} exclusively found within each of those worlds.

* LetsPlay: LetsPlay/GunarmDyne has done one.
* LiterallyShatteredLives: Some enemies can be destroyed by kicking them after freezing.
* MonsterClown: While not exactly monsters, there is a clown enemy in In Fruit Land named Bonkers. Also, the boss of Fruit Land, Piro, is a giant clown that attacks by somersaulting your way and throwing balls at you.
* MookMaker: Base Rocks spawn enemies if there are less than the maximum of each type.
* PrincessesPreferPink: Lutea and Mira. Averted with Pumpa and [[TrueBlueFemininity Crema]].
* SaveThePrincess: One princess for Kickle to save in each of the four lands.
* ShieldBearingMook: Rooker, whose shield will actually reflect Kickle's freezing attack back at him.
* {{Snowlems}}: They have a freezing breath attack like Kickle's, which they are immune to.
* SpikeBallsOfDoom: One enemy is an invincible spinning spike ball that likes to hug walls.
* SpringsSpringsEverywhere: Not to jump on, but for blocks to bounce off.
* TurtlePower: In Cake Land, there is a turtle enemy named Myrtle that likes to drop into its shell and charge. The boss is also a giant version of Myrtle, renamed Kapan.
* WingdingEyes: Kickle's eyes turn into hearts at the end when Princess Mira kisses him.
