Blatly and Imp: Northern Menace is a sidescroller video game developed by Yellow Apple Games. It is a spin off to the Skip and Sqak Series focusing on Blatly and Imp. In this game, Blatly and Imp travel up in the northern province Carnaga to stop a robot called Toxic from mutating the entire country while also trying to meet up with Skip and Sqak, who were earlier invited up in Carnaga to star in a commercial.

It is developed for the PlayStation Vita and 3DS in Early 2016.


Blatly and Imp got a phone call from Sqak saying that he and Skip won the roles to be in a commercial up in Carnaga (an equivalent to Canada). The duo decide to go up to Carnaga to meet up with Skip and Sqak in Sully's Syrup, a maple syrup factory where the commercial is being filmed. However once they arrived up in Caranga, lots of the residents began acting bitter and hostile after being exposed to a mutation gas made by a mysterious robot called Toxic. Blatly and Imp decide to venture across Carnaga trying to find Sully's Syrup and foil Toxic's plan.

The duo learned that Sully's Syrup is located in Belches Island, which is completely surrounded by Toxic's mutation goo, so they decide to use a boat from Docking Bay Danger to reach Belches Island. At Sully's Syrup, Blatly and Imp were surprised that Toxic has invaded the building and renamed it "Toxic Co." Wanting to deal with the mutation machine once and for all, Blatly and Imp confront Toxic up in Sully's office only to discover that he's actually a pawn built by Dr. Gearz (an antagonist from the first game).

Gearz reveals that after Skip and Sqak defeated Emperor Dante, his company Fracas Factory suffered bankruptcy and closed down leaving the robotic scientist broke, so he decides to go up to Carnaga and spread his mutation goo to corrupt the critters. After tying up the pair, Dr. Gearz advertises his latest invention the "Muticypher" that will reduce the critter mutants to normal, hoping this will win back his glory. It also turns out that Skip and Sqak are frozen inside a giant Popsicle with Gearz claiming that the two are responsible for the mutations. Blatly and Imp were able to break out of their restrains and stops the ad from airing to the public.

Gearz uses Toxic to destroy Blatly and Imp but they manage to destroy the menacing robot, causing debris from the ceiling to come crashing down onto Gearz. Toxic's destruction causes a chain reaction that turns all the critters in Carnaga back to normal. After Skip and Sqak thawed out of their frozen prison, they congratulated Blatly and Imp for their heroic efforts before going over to beat up Dr. Gearz as revenge for freezing them. Although Carnaga is saved from Gearz's scheme, Chairmen Sully Silkbear is nowhere to be found.

If the player rescues enough Maple Flies in each world, all the flies will reveal their empire that Dr. Gearz hidden during his and Toxic's presence in Carnaga. After travelling through the Maple Fly Kingdom, Blatly and Imp discovered Sully who is trapped inside a cage all this time; was well as Dr. Gearz, who tries to escape Carnaga in a zeppelin after the locals found out about his plans. Blatly and Imp engage a dogfight against Gearz's zeppelin and managed to rescue Sully.

In the 100% ending with Sully saved, the commercial to his maple syrup was completed and successful with everyone in the photo, including a humiliated Dr. Gearz who was knocked dizzy from the zeppelin crash.
