This is a PSP adaptation of classic Amiga/DOS platformer by Microids (http://www.microids.com).
The game was published in 1993 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 sequel to Nicky Boom; this time Nicky must find out who has been removing ladders and
blocking off caves in his homeland. The gameplay is essentially platform, with multi-directional
maze-like levels. Beating the obstructions requires occasional brainwork – hidden ladders
are easy enough to uncover, and there are lots of hidden sections to look for. The levels are
colourful, and the game has a cute look making it appear suited to younger players. Mirrors are
placed around the levels, which transport you to a random place.
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.
