Magical Hat no Buttobi Turbo! Daibōken
An ancient evil has resurfaced after being sealed underground for thousands of
years. The peaceful island, Usontō, has been split into seven pieces, and it’s
up to our hero, Hat, and his friends to restore the island and defeat the evil
Based on the 1989 TV anime _Magical Hat_ , produced by Studio Pierrot and
based on the original manga by Yōji Katakura, _Magical Hat no Buttobi Turbo!
Daib ōken_ (Magical Hat’s Flying Turbo! Adventure) is an action platform game
not unlike the Master System classic Psycho Fox. You play as the titular Hat,
jumping on and punching enemies, grabbing items from statues, and fighting a
boss at the end of each world. In each stage, you can find your robot-egg
friend Robegg hidden somewhere, who will help you out by acting as a
projectile and a shield.
There are a wide range of different power-up items that can be obtained in the
game, which will do things like give you temporary invincibility, freeze all
the enemies for a short time, give you an extra-high jump, or even call in air
support from a helicopter. At the end of each stage, you can play a game of
chance to win extra items and lives.
A heavily modified version of the game was released outside of Japan as
DEcapAttack. The graphics, sound, story, and many of the stages were changed.
