Action / Platform game
Momotarō is back in this side scrolling platform game by Hudson Soft.
Peach Boy, as he is known in the west, is once again on a fantastic journey filled
with quirky characters and armies of fierce demons. But, this time around, Hudson Soft
decided to evolve their own series and turned it into a platform game. Interestingly, the
player has first to fulfill a tutorial mission - the short challenge consists of a quick
race over strange looking creatures reminding of pink poo-poos. This first task influences
the beginning of the game and decides, for instance, of how much money the player should
start his journey with. The adventure finally starts and Momotarō can run, jump, and
use his magic Katana to strike down the countless demon foes who come to assail him.
Balls of pink energy can be fired from the mighty blade and hit enemies from afar. Small
villages are also scattered throughout the game world and can be visited to purchase new
swords, armors and various healing items. Some shops even allow the player to save his progress.
Finally, old hermits hidden inside large huts will challenge our hero with various short
matches - such as quiz, rock-paper-scissors - and award him magic spells.
