As well as this, all four levels have a different boss; a witch, a snake in a flying jar, a giant skull, and giant lips respectively, with the latter often being considered to be far too difficult. Numerous power-ups can be collected at random by wiping out a certain group of enemies before they disappear, with P power-ups upgrading your weapon, S power-ups increasing the player's speed, an icon of your character's face for an extra life and hearts giving you several hit points, and a magic lamp in the fourth level which maxes out your character's health. By default, your character starts with 6 lives, dies in one hit and he can only fire one shot on the screen at a time.

Oddly for a shooter, this game doesn't have a scoring system whatsoever and the levels progress with the only warning being that the screen fades out after the boss. The ending is a picture of your character and (presumably) the damsel in distress you were rescuing, followed by a credits screen that has some of the names that appear in other Mega Soft games.

This game was later hacked in 1995 to produce ''Aladdin III'', which is identical apart from the title screen which removes the company name and logo, as well as decreasing the protagonist's minimal speed. This one appears on several multicarts. It is also unrelated to the [[Hummer Team]] [[Aladdin (Hummer Team)|pirate]].

A couple of Harry Potter-themed games were hacks of this as well, released as ''Harry Potter'' and ''Harry Tour''. These games replace the graphics and music (The games having the same music as each other), and the sound is considered by many to be awful in comparison to ''MC1001'' and in general. The title screens for both games are based on one of the posters for the film adaptation of ''Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone'', meaning that they were released in 2001 or later.

There's also a hack on several Famiclone systems credited to [[Inventor]] called ''Witch Run'' which is similar to the ''Harry Potter'' hacks, except the backgrounds are slightly different and the music is more melodic. It is unknown which hack was made first. ''Little Hag'' may be an earlier version of ''Witch Run'', but this is currently unconfirmed. <ref>An eBay listing existed titled "Famicom FC Nintendo NES Little Hag Caltron Magic Carpet 1001 unlicensed", the listing itself was deleted and its contents are unknown.</ref>
