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.



Will sometimes hang on a black screen when the day ends. This mostly happens when using save states on that day. Likely resolved sometime before 4.0-7714.
