Magical Chase is a cute horizontal shooter developed by Palsoft and published by Quest. Ripple is a young apprentice witch who, one day, breaks the one cardinal rule of the witch code - she looks inside the forbidden demon book and accidentally releases six evil beasts into the world. The poor Ripple grabs her broomstick and sets off on a dangerous journey to seal the demons away and rectify the whole situation. Thankfully, two friendly twin-stars join the party and follow Ripple's every move to protect her from harm. Oncoming waves of the demons' minions drop all kind of colored gems and crystals when defeated, whereas Pumpkin-head shopkeepers await customers at the corner of each stage, ready to sell accessories and weapons at a premium price. Ripple uses the dropped gems to purchase new weapons (3-ways, Balkan, Waves, Bubbles and so forth), life or special attacks. Interestingly, each stage features its own set of weapons but they have no ability to upgrade. Although short introduction sequences reveal middle-bosses before the action starts, even tougher bosses await Ripple at the end of each level. Finally Magical Chase offers six long stages and three difficulty levels - however, the game can't be completed in the easiest mode.
