This is a PSP adaptation of classic Amiga/DOS platformer by Microids (http://www.microids.com).
The game was published in 1992 and was also ported to the Atari ST and PC EGA platforms.
PSP port is based on a cross-platform game engine recreation by Gregory Montoir (http://cyxdown.free.fr/nicky/)
The game will only work on custom PSP 3.XX firmwares.

The player controls 'Nicky', a little boy who embarks on an adventure through a fantastical land to
find an elixir to save his grandfather from a spell cast on him by the evil sorceress Zoldrane.
Nicky can walk, jump, and in an original theme can throw apple cores to defend himself against
the monsters occupying the levels. Aside from throwing apple cores, the player can pick up other
items to throw at enemies such as bouncy balls and logs. The logs can also be used to build bridges
at certain parts of the levels.
Nicky is able to jump on enemies to defeat them, which is often more difficult but lets the
monsters drop point items to collect. When jumped on, some enemies such as giant snails will
split into multiple smaller versions of themselves.
The game consists of 8 levels based on 4 separate themes including a swamp, dark forest and a castle.
Although, save-game / level codes are currently not implemented, there are "secret" button combos,
which enable a player to jump to next level and get bombs as well as other goodies.
