Those who stepped in front of a Famicom Disk, Writer Kiosk in April of 1992 may have scratched their heads when they saw the latest and last title available via the disk writer service with Clu Clu Land: Welcome to New Clu Clu Land. New Clu Clu Land is an updated version of the original 1984 Famicom game, though it features enhancements from the arcade version. The gameplay concept of Clu Clu Land is easy to understand. Players guide Gloopy, the spherical fish around various mazes, to find and collect gold ingots and avoid enemies, much like other maze
based games like Pac-Man. Clu Clu Land attempts to tweak the typical Pac-Man gameplay by adding poles that Gloopy can grab onto, allowing her to change direction into another lane of the maze based on when players release the pole. Finding and collecting all the ingots will end the level and move players to the next board.
