Osaka and the Stolen Chase is a platform game based on the characters from Azumanga Daioh developed by both Kemco and Azumanga Interactive, and published by Bandai Namco Games for the Bandai PocketTurbo.
The game is a hack of the Game Boy game Mickey's Dangerous Chase. But is more easier unlike the original, making the game possible to beat without losing too many lives. And when you die, you start from the beginning of the level where you left off instead of sending you back to the first level of the stage.
The player takes the role of either Ayumu Kasuga/Osaka or her best friend Chiyo Chan. On the way to deliver a present, Saki Tenjoin came along and stole it. The gameplay is a general side-scrolling action game where players destroy enemies with Super Mario World-like blocks. However, the gameplay deviates from the standard Super Mario type of platforming by not allowing Osaka/Chiyo Chan to stomp on the enemy's head. Getting to Yomi is when you finish the level, and she tells you where Saki is in the game.
There are items that grant temporary invincibility along with a 1-up and boosts to the player's health. Players have to navigate a lake, the summit of a mountain, through a vast forest, and even stroll through the shopping center while avoiding insects, small mammals, and snowballs. All of these enemies appear in their appropriate levels.
