    TRIVIA
    KiKi KaiKai was released in October 1986.

    The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Strange Old Story of Mystery World'.

    This game is also known as "Knight Boy".

    The main character is actually a Shinto priestess (as is Miko from "Tengai"). Her main weapons are 'o-fuda', which are talismans that she shoots. She also has a purification rod that she uses to swipe at enemies up close.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Secret characters: when 'Game Over' screen appears, hold UP key until the screen change. The bear (kuma) and the valley (tani) should appear on the title screen. It means that this game have been developed by Taito Kumagaya (kuma + tani) Laboratory. And if you start the game when these characters are displayed, on life is added to your play (3 by default, the game should start with 4 lives).
    • Wave a flag at a lamp post with a red orb inside it and you will get a powerup.
    • There are several types of letters or messages :
    White - increase range
    Red - increse firepower
    Yellow - big letters

    • You can also pick up 'eggs' along the way. These eggs are activated by hitting fire & flag at the same time.
    Blue - freezes all monsters for a given period of time, also those off screen.
    Yellow - kill everything on screen.

    • The 'gremlins' don't kill you but they slow you down. You can lose them by running around a lamppost.
