Pikmin may be small and plantlike, but they can be a space traveler's best friend. Stranded on an unknown planet, Captain Olimar must enlist the help of these native Pikmin to rebuild his spaceship before the life-support system runs out. In the meantime, you'll have to fend off attackers and solve various puzzles. To produce additional multicolored Pikmin you must defeat enemies and carry them back to the Pikmin nests called onions. But beware—watching giant predators gobble your Pikmin might make you angrier than you'd expect.

|Windows 7 x64||AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400 @ 2.2GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 440||Perfect, but having more than 60 active Pikmins causes the game to slow down.||Endres|
|Mac OS X 10.7.4 Lion x64||Intel Core i7 @ 2.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6750M||Works great at 100% speed almost all of the time, using 80+ Pikmin will cause a slight slowdown (from 100% to 87%, not major at all). No bugs encountered, completely finished the game.||Axxer|
