Mantis shrimp have divided into two distinct groups based on weaponry.

The Labyrinth at Nishimori (西森の迷路)
1990, Nintendo Famicom
A graphic adventure horror game for Famicom. A group of friends become separated during a week-long hiking trip through a great forest called Nishimori. As one of the unlucky teens, you find that you’re more than lost—the forest itself has turned against you! When your friends begin to come back from the darkness of the labyrinth, you’ll wish they had stayed lost.
Gameplay takes place over five in-game days—wander aimlessly and you’ll run out of time. Can you solve Nishimori’s riddles and escape, or will you join your friends in the forest forever?
