A Kappa's Trail, known in Japan as Kappa Michi (かっぱ道?, lit. "Kappa Road"), is a puzzle-action video game developed by Brownie Brown and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DSi's DSiWare digital download service.
A Kappa's Trail follows a kappa that goes around eating fish. The player moves the kappa by drawing a path with the stylus. Along the way, the player collects coins, smashes boulders, and interact with other kappas.
A Kappa's Trail has been met with positive reception. IGN awarded the game a score of 8.5 of 10 and gave it an Editor's Choice award. In a separate article, IGN stated "With its cute graphics and charming story, your time with the kappa will certainly be memorable." They further awarded it as "Game of the Month: June 2010" for the DSiWare category, saying it "is deep, quirky, challenging to just the right degree and does something new with the touch screen."
