The player controls a little raccoony homunculus on a tiny planetoid reminiscent of The Little Prince (or more to the point, Raphael the Raven's boss fight in Yoshi's Island). This round landmass (cylindrical for purposes of gameplay, only one circumference available) is plagued by an endless supply of gophers, which our raccoon can eliminate by dropping walnuts on them. Curiously, after a walnut is dropped it falls to the ground (via any gopher it may have landed on), then continues traveling straight down through the planetoid's landmass despite any rotation implied through the player's movement (the player always atop the screen, the planet rolls beneath like a geographic treadmill), then out through the other side, bopping any antipodean gophers before departing the bottom of the screen. The player has an unlimited supply of walnuts but a limited fire rate, in addition to a combined health/time bar which is always ticking down.

Helping the player are occasional appearances of health and invulnerability bonuses (fruit), very helpful when the enemy earth spits up an equally invulnerable generalissimo gopher (wearing a little military helmet, protection from your walnuts.) The game is played for high score achievement. [source:mobygames]
