Chibi Akuma(s) is an arcade style scrolling shooter, it is designed to be played with a 2 or 3 button Joystick, as it uses two fire buttons for Left and Right.
The default keys are cursor keys for Up, Down Left and Right... Z for fire Left and X for fire right... [space] is Smart Bomb , and P is pause
The keys can be redefined on the main menu, so you can map any of these controls to any joystick button or key you like
Controls, Highscores and other settings are saved in 'Settings.V01' on the first disk, if you have problems with the game, please try deleting this file as it may have become corrupt - the game will reset to defaults if the file is absent
The Curse Collection!
Chibiko can power up her Magic by collecting "Curse Cubes"... These are Black Magic Curses which have been sealed in a cube.
There are three kinds of Cube, each has a different effect:
|Double Power||Doubles the damage your shots do to the Enemies - Max 1|
|Pentagram Drone||Adds a Pentagram drone which assists your fire - Max 2|
|Speed Boost||Increases the rate of your Magic blasts - Max 3|
Curse for Victory! try to ensure you get all the curse cubes in a level - with no power ups the end boss fight will be impossible - Use smart bombs, or take a hit to grab them! Remember: Curse cubes only last one level, so you will have to re-collect them when you Level Up!
Boss Blasting! Smartbombs do not damage Boss enemies - you can use them to clear away heavy enemy fire, or boss drones, but only regular blasting will hurt the boss - most Boss enemies will change in appearence when seriously hurt - the last boss has a life bar.
Conserve your Ammo! the game engine only allows 36 player shots on screen. with heavy powerups you may find you are unable to fire as much as you want - make sure you aim your fire to hit enemies, and make your hits count!
Size isn't everything! Sometimes your fire seems to go through enemies, try aiming higher up! Some enemies are larger than others, but they will still have the same hitzone (24px square), so they aren't hurt by shooting their feet!
Know your limits! Your hitzone is the small red dot in the middle of you character - you move more slowly while holdi fire so weave around enemy fire - release fire to run away quickly... Also its worth noting your drones are invincible, sometimes you can use them to shoot an enemy just above or below, while you stay out the way!
Know Your Enemy!
Did you know that all the enemies have a name? due to programming limitations, their names are not shown during the game, but you can see them all here!
Level 1 - Mountains
|Ant Attacker||Huge Three-eyed spiny ant, it walks around blasting fire upwards|
|Skeleton Crawler||Losing half its body, and being constantly legless doesn't slow this enemy down!|
|Boni Burd||What animal has Four arms, A skull and no body? - no idea, but it's called "BoniBurd", and I bet it's good at the piano!|
|Skull Gang||There never seem to be any Skull duos - they always have to go around in 'gangs'... these mouthy cluster fly around spraying fire everywhere|
|Eyeclopse||a strange creature with One Eye, and Two tenticles, it moves in a wave pattern firing bursts|
|Rock Chick||What came first, the Rock or the Chick? who knows, but they seem to have combined, doesn't really move much, but it's amazing it flies at all!|
|Splice Face||Apparently two faces are better than one, this is a tough enemy which blasts fire everywhere, and sneaks up from behind!|
Level 2 - Forest
|Biterfly||Its not clear what happened to this Butterfly, but it's grown a big mouth and looks likely to use it!|
|Gnat Pack||A cluster of Mosquitos! don't they know there's only room for one bloodsucker in this forest?|
|Any resemblence to the Monty Python killer rabbit with big pointy teeth is coincidence... this is a different Killer Rabbit, with totally unrelated Pointy Teeth!|
|Mukadebachi||A cross between a Mukade centipede, and a Suzumebachi wasp - it's huge, spreys fire everywhere, and killing one segment won't stop it!|
|ShroomBomber||A flying bug infected with Entomopathogenic fungus, Its high! on mushrooms! and out to cause trouble|
|Zombie Capybara||Even the adorable Capybara has been turned in to a Brain Munching deranged monster by the recent Zombie Outbreak!|
|Zombie Salaryman||This Zombified businessman roams the land with an insatiable appetite... for making dubious expenses claims!|
Level 3 - River
|Fish-Bone||No wishes to be had here - it's not clear why the head has been preserved, but the tail has rotted away|
|Bubble||What on earth is in the water to have bubbles rising like this? Comes in 2 sizes!|
|FishFace||I'm not sure if this fish has two faces, or the second one is something it swallowed - either way it's creepy!|
|LiliFrog||This frog sits around all day, causing hassle to everyone who goes past|
|Pairanah||Two mouths are better than one! as if one paranah wasn't bad enough!|

|Tentitack||A Tenticle covered Jellyfish like creature that's always on the attack!|
|SuperFish||Is it a bird? Is it a plane, is it a Laptop Virus? Yes - it's Super Fish! |
|StarfishBomber||A star filled nights sky is one thing, but a Starfish filled sky?|
Level 4 - Dark Caves
Note: Many enemies on this level emit light
|This has to be different enough from the smari0 enemy to be legally safe doesn't it?|
|GhostMan||Looks like the lovechild of the characters of a certain classic arcade game!|
|Blobber||These blobs of god-knows-what lurk around the top and bottom of the screen, and are very hard to see!|

|Flamer||Glows Red... Who knows, maybe you'll prefer to put up with it than be in the dark?|
|Fire! Fly!||This bug has a two track mind! It also glows green|
|Lumipede||A green glowing bug, it has two parts, and you'll have to kill both!|
|JellyFishy||Whats a waterfall full of Jellyfish doing in a cave? why glowing Blue of course!|
