    The Fairyland Story © 1985 Taito Corp.

    A precursor to 1986's "Bubble Bobble", the player controls a spell-casting elf who turns evil wizards, witches and other enemies into cakes and either pushes them from the platform ledges, or shoots then repeatedly to destroy them. If an enemy touches the player character, the elf becomes entrapped in a magic bubble and floats away. Each level takes place inside a variety of castles.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    INSTRUCTIONS:
    • Insert Coin and select a one or two player game.
    • Use Ptolemy's magic to turn monsters into cakes. Keep sprinkling magic on the cakes to destroy them, or drop them onto other monsters for bonus points.
    • Destroy all the monsters to clear the level.
    • If a monster touches Ptolemy, or a cake falls on her, a life will be lost.
    • Enemy wizards can shrink Ptolemy. If they hit Ptolemy while she is already shrunk, a life will be lost.
    • Ptolemy can stand on top of monsters.
    • Picking up an item will cause various effects, including upgrading Ptolemy's magic.
    • When all Ptolemy's lives are lost, the game will end.
    • On levels 8 through to 98 there is a continue option.
