Maou no Akuji is an action platformer game for the PC.
It’s amazing how it took Dojin Nyuu months to do something that took D-BOY a few days. He’s just released an update to his patch, that adds in a nice new title screen, as well as a few text fixes. This patch will only work on a clean install of Akuji, so patching it over an already translated version won’t work. Or, at least, it probably won’t work.
Unfortunately, with the release of buster’s 1.01 update, D’s patch no longer properly translates the in-game signs, though everything else is still okay. You’re better off going with Do-jin Nyuu’s patch, which works completely.
UPDATE 2014: D has re-released his old patch, now bundled with a needed .dll to make the game work on Vista, Win 7 & Win 8.. Don’t know if he fixed the problem with the in-game signs though.
He also has the game itself (it is freeware) available on one of his sites. So, if you can’t figure out how to navigate your way through buster’s Japanese site, then go here and download akuji.lzh, then use something like WinRar or 7-Zip to extract the game from the lzh archive.
Finally, you’ll need beat to patch the game and when you do, don’t forget to select the entire game directory to patch, and not just the .exe file.
