Devil Hunter Yohko is a game I’ve wanted to for long time. It always stuck me as a cool platformer just from what little I had seen of it. Because it was also a bit expensive and hard to find I couldn’t help but get more curious about it. When I came across it recently the price was the best I’d seen over the past few years and I went for it.
Since I enjoy collecting these games as much as playing them it was a nice plus for me to see that the cover, manual and cartridge all have different artwork. It makes a game feel like a little extra effort was put into it. I believe the game is based on a Japanese Anime series so it could be they had a lot of artwork ready to go.
So far I have only played it just briefly and my first impression is that it’s not great but good. The graphics don’t stand out but they do the job. Personally I don’t like the level one music but the tunes do get a lot better in later stages.
In the image below the games condition looks excellent but because of a very fine line of wear on the bottom right of the cover and and crease along the top of the cartridge label I’m going to give this one a rating of Good instead of Very Good.
I would recommend this game to any retro gamer if it wasn’t so expensive.
