In Nutjitsu, you play as a Ninja, master of the ancient art of Nutjitsu. As you navigate each level, you'll need to pick up Acorns to maximize your score and complete objectives. As you collect Acorns, more Kitsune will be alerted to your presence. If they catch your trail, they will begin to chase you. If they reach you, the game is over! Outrun them or use Ninja Powers to evade them.
As you play and complete levels, you'll earn xp and Acoins. As you rank up, you'll unlock Ninja Powers, new Acorns, powerful upgrades, and new levels to play on. Use the Acoins you've earned in the store to buy more of the powers and upgrades you need to succeed.

In this mode, you are tasked with collecting a certain number of Acorns.
The number of Acorns needed to complete the mission is shown on the mission intro screen and in-game.
Any type of Acorn collected counts towards the mission objective.
Once all of the Acorns are collected the mission is complete.
In this mode, a specific color of Acorn is displayed on the right, along with the total number of Acorns that need to be collected.
Only Acorns that match this color are counted towards the mission total.
The color of Acorn needed changes over time, so stay alert. Reach the total to complete the mission.
In this mode, you must collect Acorns, and then bring them to the drop-off point.
You can only hold 8 Acorns at a time. The display on the right shows you how many more you can carry.
If your bag is full, you must empty it at a drop-off point before you can put more in your bag.
Any time you have Acorns in your bag, you can deliver them at a drop-off point, even if the bag isn't full.
Simply walk over the drop-off point, and the Acorns are delivered.
Once enough Acorns are delivered, the mission is complete.
In this mission, you are tasked with retrieving secret scrolls from the Kitsune.
The number of scrolls needed to complete the mission is shown on the mission intro screen and in-game.
Scrolls appear one at a time, and only stay around for a few seconds.
Once all of the scrolls needed are collected, the mission is complete.
In this mode, a magical area appears on the map. The area glows blue when the Ninja is not standing in it, and changes to a vibrant gold when the Ninja is lurking inside.
The amount of time (in seconds) that you need to stand in the magic area is shown on the right.
The magic area occasionally moves to another location on the map. Stay in it long enough to complete the mission.
In Survival mode, your goal is to collect as many Acorns as possible before being caught. High scores you earn in Survival can be posted to the global leaderboard. Use the Ninja Power management screen to choose and restock your Ninja Powers, and then select the map you want to play on. More and more Kitsune appear as you collect Acorns, so use your Ninja powers carefully to earn the highest score you can.
Use the Smoke Bomb to shroud yourself in an impenetrable mist. Using a Smoke Bomb erases your trail, and you don't leave footprints while the Smoke Bomb is active. Any Kitsune on your trail when you use the Smoke Bomb instantly loses track you.
While invisible, you can walk through Kitsune without fear of being caught. The Smoke Bomb only lasts a limited time. Smoke Bombs can be purchased with Acoins in the store. You earn 50 xp every time you use a Smoke Bomb. The Smoke Bomb is unlocked at rank 3.

Use a Freeze Bomb to temporarily encase all Kitsune on the screen in ice. If any Kitsune are chasing you when the Freeze Bomb is used, they lose your trail. Kitsune cannot move while frozen, and you can safely pass by them while they are encased in ice.
Freeze Bombs can be purchased with Acoins in the store. You earn 50 xp every time you use a Freeze Bomb. The Freeze Bomb is unlocked at rank 13.
Use a Shadow Clone to create a copy of yourself to fool the Kitsune. The Shadow Clone leaves its own trail that your enemies will follow. If you are being chased when you use a Shadow Clone, the enemies following you will instead chase the Shadow Clone.
Shadow Clones can be purchased with Acoins in the store. You will earn 50 xp every time you use a Shadow Clone. The Shadow Clone is unlocked at rank 17.
Use a Flame Shield to spawn a rotating ball of fire around the Ninja. This ball of flame lasts a very long time. The first enemy to come into contact with the Flame Shield is incinerated. Unlike other Ninja Powers, only 3 Flame Shields can be used in a game, even with other upgrades.
Flame Shields can be purchased with Acoins in the store. You earn 50 xp every time you use a Flame Shield. The Flame Shield is unlocked at rank 23.
The Hunter never lets up in his pursuit of the Ninja. Their steady pace makes their movements very predictable.
The Dasher moves swiftly from cover to cover, scanning his surroundings before quickly sprinting to the next spot.
The Trapper applies powerful poisons to his blade that drip wherever he walks. Stepping on this poison will weaken the Ninja for a few seconds.
