During recent years the nuclear decay modes of discrete prompt proton and $\alpha$-particle emission from (super)deformed high-spin states have been discovered in nuclei in the vicinity of 56Ni. The latest news from experiments performed at EUROBALL and GAMMASPHERE regarding these decays are presented and discussed.

23.50.+z - Decay by proton emission.
23.60.+e - Alpha decay.
27.40.+z - $39 \leq A \leq 58$ .
27.50.+e - $59 \leq A \leq 89$ .
