Mikan's Quest is a platform game based on the characters from Takeru & Hikari developed by Azumanga Interactive and published by Bandai Namco Games for the Bandai Extreme. It stars Mikan Sakura and her elementary school friends, Takeru and Hikari as treasure-hunters.
The game is a hack of the Sega Genesis game QuackShot.
The player, as Mikan, ventures through a variety of side-scrolling levels. Generally, each level is divided into an overland part and a dungeon, such as the Maharajah's palace or the temple in which the Great Treasure resides. Although the player may choose any order to play the overland sections, various obstacles prevent the player from entering the dungeons outside of a specific order. In addition to this some levels provide the player with vital clues which solve puzzles needed to progress in later sections. Once Mikan has completed the overland section of an area, she may leave by calling her friends' by plane, and will return to the dungeon entrance of that area if the player chooses to return.
Mikan is armed with a special gun that can shoot plungers, popcorn or bubblegum. Mikan has unlimited plungers, and can collect popcorn and gum along the way or get the latter from Koushiro/Izzy. The plunger can be upgraded to act as a temporary platform to climb walls with or, when stuck to a passing bird, allow Mikan to traverse longer distances. Mikan can also pick up chilli pepers in certain levels, which increase her temper.
While Mikan was playing with her elementary school friends, Takeru and Hikari, they see a book that was left behind from the library. So they read it and seen a treasure map that leads to a Great Treasure in an ancient temple. So they set off to find the treasure. While on the way, they battle against vampires, mummies, pirate zombies, and more.
After evading the traps, Mikan eventually reaches the treasure vault, but it is guarded by an ancient guardian forcing Mikan to fight. After defeating the guardian, Mikan enters the treasure vault, only to find a simple stone statue. She is clearly disappointed, but Takeru and Hikari accidentally break the statue, which reveals a golden jeweled necklace was hidden inside. Mikan gives the necklace to Hotaru and the two fly off into the sunset together.
