About The Game

This is an action game released by Bothtec in 1984.

The player controls the monster detective and engage in battles to rescue Sayuri, who has been lured by a group of monsters.

The unique feature of this game is the distinctive attack method. The fireballs can not only be launched but also freely controlled and detonated. However, since the fireballs are linked to the movement of the player's character, it may be challenging until you get used to it.

Being caught in the blast of a fireball will also knock down your character, so understanding the stage layout and enemy placements is crucial. Controlling the fireballs becomes a key strategy.
