Magical Hat no Buttobi Turbo! Daibouken (for the Mega Drive)
« on: January 29, 2013, 01:11:43 AM »
Yes, that title is a mouthful. It's a super rare Mega-Drive platformer from Vic Tokai based on an obscure 80s anime show of the same name. It's essentially the Japanese version of Decap Attack from 1990.

Since there's a complete set of Decap Attack maps on this web-site, I would love to see a set of maps from 'Magical Hat no Buttobi Turbo! Daibouken' to go long with it. Pretty Please!!!  ;)

As far as I know no one on the internet has made a map of any of the 21 levels in this game, although there's a lot of gameplay walktrhoughs for it on YouTube. I wonder if anyone here at vgmaps (like Dark Wolf) has ever heard of it, since it's much less popular than its bastardized Western version: 'Decap Attack.' The following link contains some basic information about this rare colorful 16-bit platformer gem:

Does anyone have this game and is willing to put the time into it!?!



Muchos Gracias!!!

I haven't replied to this because I haven't mapped in quite a while and I'm pretty busy until after the first of March getting ready for a convention I'm helping out with.  Since no one has taken the challenge and since I have the experience doing the others I may do this one eventually, but I can't make any promises.

Fortunately, the game uses the same memory addresses for levels and backgrounds, so my scripts for Decapattack worked perfectly.  I did manage to get the first set of levels done, but this will probably be it for a few weeks, as I have to fly to the east coast next week or the week after, in addition to the convention stuff I mentioned earlier.  Jon, please consider this post a submission, and perhaps move this to maps in progress?

Here's the logo:

I love the spiffy Japanese logo. Thank god the DecapAttack scripts worked perfectly for this rare Japanese game.

Domo arigato, DarkWolf-san! The first set of maps look great, and I love how you include all of the enemy and item locations throughout.

 :D

Hey DarkWolf, how is the convention going for you on the east coast??

Have you had time to work some more on this Decap Attack clone lately?
