Mamono Hunter Youko: Dai 7 no Keishou (魔物ハンター妖子 第7の警鐘) is a Sega Mega Drive action platform game developed by KLON and published by Masaya. Based on the 1990 anime series Mamono Hunter Youko, it was released exclusively in Japan in March 1991.[2]

Story

Youko Mano (真野 妖子) is a ordinary high school girl until she learns that every woman in her family is a devil hunter who must defend our world from the denizens of the demon world. When the two worlds are in alignment, a portal opens that can allow the demons to cross over. Youko must battle the demons, led by the demon queen Feriam (フェリアム), and take her place as the 108th generation devil hunter.

Gameplay

The game is a side-scrolling platform game, similar to the Valis series, played as the heroine Youko, a 16-year-old girl with a sword tasked with banishing demons from the human world. Youko moves with Left and Right and crouches with Down. She jumps with A or C; unlike many platformers, she cannot change her direction in the middle of a jump. She swings her sword with B. She can attack with her sword while standing, jumping, or crouching, and she can stab downward in midair with Down+B.

Her sword can generate a barrier around her by holding B. She keeps the barrier for as long as B is held and can move (but not attack with her sword) while she has the barrier. The barrier dissipates after a moment when B is released. Youko can throw the barrier at enemies as a projectile by releasing B and then pressing B again before the barrier dissipates. The barrier is usually thrown directly forward, but it can be directed diagonally upward or downward with Up+B or Down+B. Both the barrier and the sword attack can neutralize enemy projectiles. The barrier returns to Youko like a boomerang after it reaches the apex of its travel, and she can retain it by holding B again.

Youko has a health bar that drops when she receives damage, then partially regenerates if she does not immediately take additional damage. Otherwise, if she is hit before replenishing her health, she takes loses the ability to replenish the damage from the first attack. Youko's barrier protects against small projectiles but not against larger projectiles or direct contact with an enemy (unless fired as a projectile). Multiple successive small projectiles can also penetrate the barrier. She loses a life if she loses all of her health or if the time limit runs out and restarts from a predetermined checkpoint in the level. She also loses a life from falling into a bottomless pit or deep water. The game ends if she loses all of her lives, but it can be continued from the beginning of the level if the player has credits left.
