Nuts & Milk is an obscure title for the Famicom that also represents an important milestone for the system. Almost one year after the first Famicom game arrived on the shelves, Nintendo's first third party publisher, Hudson Soft, released Nuts & Milk as their first game. This game never made it over to the United States, but it's a rather simple and fun game, and would have complimented the early US software quite well, in spite of its cuteness. It was released on the Game Boy Advance in Hudson's compilation of Famicom games, Hudson Best Collection Vol. 4. It was also redeveloped and released for play on Java capable mobile phones with updated sound and graphics.
Hudson originally developed Nuts & Milk for the MSX computer system, as a much simpler game. In a not so ironic way, the presentation of this game almost suggests that someone at Hudson took an early Famicom game and tweaked it until it was a new game, rather than programming one from scratch. The title screen, and the bonus score and player score layouts resemble the Donkey Kong games a great deal. And the fireball sprite is nearly identical to the Famicom's Mario Bros. fireball sprite. Hudson also introduced the concept of programmable games to the Famicom, which allowed the user to devise their own levels with a Game Editor. Hudson went on to be a prolific developer for Nintendo, and was a particularly strong supporter of the TurboGrafx 16.
