Chocobo Panic is a game for iOS where the player catches and holds various colorful chocobos moving around the screen until they are told to "Let go!". The game features a co-op mode and high score.


The player must catch the specified chocobos as they move about the field. Once the player is holding a certain number of chocobos, they must release one of them. When it is time to release a chocobo, the phrase "Let go!" will appear in the window and an effect will occur around the chocobo to release. If the player releases the wrong chocobo, it will count as a mistake.

In "1 Player & Co-Op," mode, the player can use up to six fingers to catch chocobos one after another and aim for the high score. In two-player mode, the players can use one iPad, iPhone or iPod and compete against each other until someone makes a mistake. If a player releases their hand too soon, they will lose.



The name "chocobo" derives from a Japanese brand of chocolate malt ball by Morinaga, ChocoBall (チョコボール, Chokobōru?). The mascot for this product is Kyoro-chan (キョロちゃん?), a bird who says "kweh".

食う / くう / kuu is a rough way to say "eat", whose volitional casual form is 食え / くえ / kue ("let's scoff 'em down!"), leading to Kweh!
