Ponpoko (????) is an arcade game developed and published by Sigma Enterprises. It was released in January 1983, though the title screen reads 1982. Ponpoko is a platform game with the goal of collecting all the fruits and vegetables in each level. The game was sold as a conversion kit by Venture Line.In Ponpoko, the player controls a Tanuki (? or ???), or Japanese raccoon dog, that can climb ladders, walk across platforms, and jump over deadly apple cores and gaps while trying to avoid caterpillars and snakes. Creatures move horizontally, from one side of the screen to the other and back again, floating over gaps in the platforms. Baskets contain either snakes, fruits, vegetables, or other bonus items.
This arcade game was particularly popular in South Korea in the 1980s.
