Hey this is a pretty good time. Game is Nankoku Shounen Papuwa-kun by Enix, action platform game with a little bit of RPG sprinkled on top. Fun atmosphere, lots of personality in the levels and character interactions and decent but slow difficulty progression. My only gripe is the camera can be slow to keep up which leads to some annoying obstacles on the border of your screen.

It won't set your world on fire but it's a fun game with nice visuals and sweet music, slowdown isn't unreasonable unlike the last game I shared Deae Tonosama Appare Ichiban.

I feel like there is some hidden rule that if a Japanese game has those dumb umbrella yokai in it, you're in for a fun romp.
For a SNES game the main character's spritework is also very dynamic, I love the punch and mid-air kick animations.

I'm not sure if I missed it by not having the manual or not reading the Japanese but the L/R slide makes this game, makes combat more fun and dynamic and moves like sliding into a kick feel great and have lots of utility. Just took me a couple of stages to grasp that after ignoring the shoulder buttons.

The stormy evening some peasant farmer saw an torn up umbrella bounce on the ground before taking off somewhere into the rice paddy he knew he was going to be serving up some prime ink wash paintings.
