Chubby Cherub (known in Japan as Obake no Q-tarō: WanWan Panic) is a video game by Bandai for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It is about a flying cupid-like character who eats food and attacks enemies with hearts. The original Japanese version of the game is about a ghost named Q-tarō, a character from a Fujiko Fujio manga series titled Obake no Q-tarō. It was retitled and heavily modified for its North American release since its source material was not familiar to Western audiences.
Chubby Cherub's friends are kidnapped by several burglars. Chubby Cherub has to save them, however many dogs are in the way. Chubby Cherub has to cross 12 levels, at the end of each, the protagonist will find his friends. Eating food maintains Chubby Cherub's flight. If the flying meter goes all the way down, the character will have to stay on ground. The character will bark at the dogs before they bark at the character; if a bark hits the character, the character may die.
There are hell and heaven stages. When Chubby Cherub goes down of the stage where is open downsides, he goes to the hell. It is dark stage and cannot see any floors, and cannot fly. When Chubby Cherub touched a dog, he reacts like a miss but it repeats until he arrives to the exit. Heaven can be arrived with a ringed smoke when Chubby Cherub touched it flying from the lower part. Heaven has many cakes which have each 500 points. If Chubby Cherub eats foods every time from right side since the beginning of the stage until reaching the heaven, the heaven stage scrolls and Chubby Cherub warps to beyond of the stage according to the distance of scrolled part of the heaven.
