Popful Mail is a side-scrolling action-adventure game, originally made by Nihon Falcom (developers of the Ys series) for NEC's PC 88 and PC 98 home computers in Japan, and then ported to the Turbo Grafx 16 CD and Sega CD systems. Working Designs worked on the localization for the North American Sega CD version (the one that will be covered in this entry). There's also a little-known Super Famicom version.

It stars a charmingly inept elven bounty hunter named Popful Mail (think Lina Inverse with Pointy Ears), who's spent much of her adventuring life chasing after the notorious criminal Nuts Cracker. She manages to corner him, but is only able to retrieve Nuts' head (as his body runs away from her during their melee), which is practically worthless.
