is an overhead run 'n' gun that was released exclusive in Japan for the Mega Drive, and was developed by a very obscure developer called Wonder Amusement Studio. It sets itself apart from other games in its genre due to its unique setting - it combines Mers
-style gameplay with Cotton
-style thematics. You spend the entire game plowing through each level and mowing down anything and everything in sight with an assortment of weapons and bombs. Except your character is a witch named Saria, complete with a magic staff and pointy hat, rather than a machine-gun toting commando, and the stages and enemies have a fantasy theme rather than your standard Rambo
inspired settings that are so prevalent in the genre. The enemies themselves are a mix of various generic fantasy monsters and the stages vary from castles, to stone walkways in the sky, to simple grassy fields. The title screen shows a floating island (where I guess this takes place) and the intro screen (which explains the plot) is designed to look like a picture book, which is perfect for the tone of the game.
