Majuu Ou (Japan) [En by Aeon Genesis v1.01] (~King of Demons)
Majyuuou or "King of Demons" is an action game released by Kssin 1995, the story follows a man named Abel who has been betrayed and has his family sacrificed to revive Lucifer. Abel, receives new powers from his deceased wife and must go to hell to rescue his daughter and stop his former friend . The game's horror thematic is similar to Castlevania's, although Majyuuou is more intense. The gameplay too shares some similarities although Majyuuou does feel very different, the main differences come in the fact the initial character possesses a gun and later on is able to take on multiple demon forms depending on a type of jewel chosen at the end of the level. Despite being easier than Castlevania, Majyuuou's interesting gameplay and themes make it difficult not to recommend it.
