The game stars two telepathic twins named Mika and Toni. One day at school a bright light appears that transports the sisters, and a few of their peers, into another dimension. Now the girls have to find the others and get back home.


This game provides examples of:

  • Anti-Villain: Majo-Majo only captured the Twins and their friends because he was lonely and just wanted a Worthy Opponent, as everyone in his world was bad at games. He apologizes and sends the girls and all of their friends back home, thanking them for a fun time.
  • Big Bad: Majo-Majo. He was the one responsible for transporting the characters to the strange world to begin with.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Sit still for a while, and Toni/Mika will give you an Aside Glance.
  • But Now I Must Go: Toni considers staying a while longer with Majo-Majo to play more games, before Mika reminds her that they must return home.

  • Collision Damage: If the enemy is eating candy, the girls can jump on them harmlessly and even use them as platforms. Otherwise, they're dangerous.
  • Cry Cute: Whenever you lose a life, Toni/Mika sit and bawl their eyes out.
  • Death Is a Slap on the Wrist: Dying is of minimal consequence in this game, as you have infinite continues. You do lose whatever level checkpoints you reached upon getting a Game Over, though.
  • Easily Forgiven: The girls don't bear a grudge and quickly forgive Majo-Majo for what he has done, and even thank him for the fun times they had in his world.
  • Edible Ammunition: Candy is your main weapon.
  • Excuse Plot: Toni and Mika and their friends are mysteriously teleported to a Wackyland while at school. It's up to the twins to rescue their friends as well as find a way for them to return home.

  • Floating Platforms: In some spots in the game, your twin will come across a sequence of colored platforms suspended over a pit. One of them is correct, while the other is a Fake Platform that will instantly drop you into the pit. You can call the opposite twin through Twin Telepathy, who will help you by telling you which correct platform to jump on. Heed her advice, or else.
  • Green Hill Zone: Stage 1. Flower Road.
  • Hearts Are Health: Your Life Meter is measured by hearts.
  • Idle Animation: Toni/Mika deliver an Aside Glance at the player before doing their little animation.
  • Invincible Minor Minion: Nasty pink worms in the Magical Forest level are immune to candy. Unless you're invincible, you can only avoid them.
  • Invincibility Power-Up: Stars.
  • Let's Split Up, Gang!: Upon arriving in the strange world, Toni and Mika oddly decide to split up and search for their friends.
  • Level Ate: Stage 3. Sweet Hill.
  • Level In The Clouds: Stage 2 (Clouds Island) not only has plenty of cloud platforms, but also floats that make high jumps possible.
  • The Lost Woods: Stage 5. Magical Forest.
  • Minigame Game: There are no boss battles, but rather you play a minigame against an opponent in order to advance to the next level.
  • Platform Game: Hop on platforms and fend off enemies with Candy.
  • Ratchet Scrolling: Rare example for a 16 bit game.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: All of your enemies are little cute creatures.
  • Smart Bomb: If the girls have a "B" icon, they can "nuke" the screen with candy and disable all enemies if things get a little hairy.
  • Tastes Like Friendship: Throwing candy is the girls' main defense against enemies. It doesn't kill them, but rather distracts them enough to render them harmless to the girls.
  • Toy Time: Stage 4. Toys Bridge.
  • Twin Telepathy: It's one of Mika and Toni's special abilities after all. Grabbing a special item will summon your sister (Toni when playing as Mika and vice versa) where she will tell you which correct colored flower platform to jump on next.
  • WackyLand: The strange world the twins and their friends were teleported to.
