Legend of Hero Tonma is the conversion of Irem's cute arcade game. The player takes control of a little caped boy called Tommy. The kingdom's princess has been kidnaped by an evil Goblin monster and he keeps her prisoner in his deepest dungeon. Tommy starts his adventures in a devastated village haunted by bouncing mummies and skeleton warriors. He will travel through many areas and affront the evil goblin in his terrifying castle. Tommy is not a usual kid. His cape allows him to hoover on short distances and his magic gloves can fire small, yet powerful, fireballs. Chests scattered around the game hide coins but also power-ups. Some will upgrade Tommy's fireballs, others will give him new powers like rotating shields or homing-fireballs. Tommy can also use another trick and jump on his enemies's heads and freeze them for a short amount of time. The visited world is vast and spreads over seven long stages.
