Majuu Ou (AKA King of Demons) is an action/platform game for the Super Nintendo.
You take the role of a man named Abel, who’s wife and daughter were kidnapped by your supposed best friend, Bayer. Typically, victims of kidnapping face a grim fate, but even more so in this case. It seems a demon needed some resurrecting (And not just any demon, mind you. The KING of demons!), and your family was just what was needed to accomplish this. Abel doesn’t like this very much, so he takes his lucky handgun on a quest of love and vengeance.
The gameplay is a mix of Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts and Castlevania. Abel can double jump, slide, stomp, and shoot a semiautomatic pistol (Which can also be charged). You can also get a familiar ala Symphony of the Night that will attack your enemies and resurrect you if you die, which just happens to be your dead wife’s soul in the form of a mutated looking fairy. Also, after each boss fight, you can pick up a crystal that will transform you into one of three forms: A red creature that has really fast attacks, a green demon that has more power and less speed, and a blue dragon that’s really big and slow but very powerful.
