    TRIVIA
    Released in January 1990.

    Licensed to Taito for Japanese distribution.

    Demon's World was originally known as "Hora Story" rather than horror story as listed. For US distribution, it was licensed to World Games who later became Catalina Games for the release of their only inhouse designed game "Cool Pool".

    UPDATES
    There are 2 versions of this game, which effect the order of the levels. One starts in the Far East and features Asian-style ghosts, while the other starts the game in the spooky Old West with Western-style ghosts.
