Magic Girl Featuring Ling Ling the Little Witch
Magic Girl (小魔女, literally Little Witch) is a unlicensed shooting game made by Gamtec for the Sega Mega Drive in 1993.
The story tells of a witch named Ling Ling whose planet was attacked by monsters from a black hole, seeking revenge for her destroyed hometown. The game plays like a fairly standard vertical shooter, although it features elements not common in such games such as a health meter and two types of shields that can be used simultaneously. The game's five stages long with a boss at the end of each stage.
Ports and re-releases Edit
Along with several unlicensed/repro releases done after the game's initial release, Magic Girl has also received two officially licensed re-releases. A Genesis cartridge version was released by Super Fighter Team in 2015 that translated the game into English. Aside from this the game also advertises Legend of Wukong, another Gamtec game the publisher translated and released, after the credits. A port for the Evercade handheld system will be included on the Piko Interactive Collection 1 cartridge, which will release in 2020.
- Some graphics from this game (namely Stage 4's background) were also in another Gamtec game, Thunderbolt II (though the Famicom version.)
- One of the bosses in Super Bubble Bobble MD bears a strong resemblance to Ling Ling.
