Tinkle Pit (ティンクルピット, lit. Tinkuru Pitto), is an arcade game that was released by Namco in 1993 only in Japan; it runs on the company's NA-1 hardware, and features many of the characters from its earlier games (including the Galaxian flagship, Pac-Man, the Rally-X Special Flag, the Solvalou from Xevious, Mappy from his self-titled game, and several others besides, some of whom have originally only appeared in the game they were invented for: the Rainbow Block from Cutie Q is one example).

The players must take control of Pitt and Patti, two inhabitants of the fictitious "Tinker Land", who are on a mission to save it from the evil demon Maō (who has transformed all of its other inhabitants into statues); they must make their way through eight worlds (two of which are based upon Toy Pop, and Emeraldia), collecting items (those of the second world are dolls which resemble Pino and Acha and those of the eighth world are their fellow Tinker Landers' statues), and killing enemies (which include Heitai, Pookas and Fygars) with their "Tinker Balls", before coming face-to-face with Maō himself for the final battle (who, for the first two phases, has an infinite amount of Blinky clones at his disposal). Once you have drained his energy for his initial demonic form, he shall transform into an evil, black-and-purple clone of Pitt (with a one-eyed black Tinker Ball) - and, once you have drained his energy for this form he shall transform into a giant one-eyed bat. Once you have drained his energy for this final form, he shall explode (like the "mini-boss", Naka-G1, did on Stage 23), and the game will end.
