Shippu Mahou Daisakusen (疾風魔法大作戦 "Kingdom Grandprix") is a game developed by Raizing and published by Eighting in 1994. It is the second game in the Mahou trilogy. The first game being Mahou Daisakusen (Sorcer Striker) and later being followed up by Great Mahou Daisakusen (Dimahoo). The game is a shoot'em up arcade game with racing game aspects mixed in.

In 1996, the game recieved a port to the Sega Saturn.

Gameplay Overview

The game mixes racing and shmup elements together for its core gameplay. Rival racers can be knocked into or bumped out of the way or sent flying backwards with bombs, although normal player shots will not affect them at all. The player can move faster by staying high up the screen, indicated by a trail activating behind the ship/character. Holding down the Fire button also increases your speed, but you can't fire during this mode.

Screen scroll speed affects rank. When moving at minimum speed, the game becomes slightly more difficult, with usually more numerous and faster bullets, as well as possible extra enemy spawns.

At the end of every level, the player can choose between two different stages (three stages are given as an option for the final stage).

The game has two loops. To earn the second loop, the player must win the race in the first loop. In the second loop, the player has to go through all the stages they originally didn't pick in the first loop. In the case of the final stage, they get the option between the two that hadn't been chosen.

Score extends (with default settings) are at 300,000 points each, but only in the first loop.

Controls


  • A (Press): Fires standard shots from the ship.
  • A (Hold): Activates a speed booster, speeding up the rate of screen scrolling to the maximum. You won't slow down no matter what while in this state.
  • B: Activates a bomb, bombs are unique to every character.
  • Down (Bottom of the screen): Brake / lower the screen scrolling speed.
  • Grind (Wall): A strong brake.
  • Bump (Enemy or other racer): A weak brake.
