Pocky can throw o-fune while Rocky throws leaves for their ranged attacks. They also have melee attacks that can deflect enemies projectiles.
It is a fun 1 Player game, but even better with a friend and will bring about nostalgia for 16-Bit Music. It is noted to be a very hard game, even though it features a Easy, Medium, and Hard difficulty setting.
In Japan, "Pocky and Rocky" is known as, "KiKi KaiKai: Nazo No Kuro Manto."
Pocky's original name was, "Sayo-chan" and Rocky's original name was, "Manuke."
