Supposedly the rank increase from completing item sets is a bit harsher in Great Mahou Daisakusen than in Dimahoo. I doubt it's a very large difference though, if you can play one well you can probably play the other too.

By the way, I read on some japanese sites that completing sets gives you special powers, like shoes makes you a bit faster, and armor makes you htibox a bit smaller, but I've never heard that before and no idea if it's true.

Well, I got 11M with Grimlen on GMD, but I used save states so it doesn't count.

Then I tried without save states and only got to stage 3, a little over 1M for score, lol. I suck at those things now.

I know how to score on this game more or less, but I just don't trust my reflexes those days anymore. :(

There's a discussion about it here. I doubt it's true, and even if it is it's insignificant enough that you can't really tell from watching superplays.

yeah I don't remember and I think I was searching for shippu information at the time so no idea, but it sounds like a rumor anyway.

And the food items helps your progress towards the grocery shopping minigame.

Having played the game a bunch, I would say for certain it's not true. If it were, the effects are insignificant enough that it wouldn't be worth the programming time.

Hmmm if it did....

Shoes - increased speed
Food - 1up
Ax - adds wider rapid shot
Sword - adds piercing rapid shot
Amulet - stronger magic shot
Staff - stronger magic/charge attack
Rings - stronger bomb
Armor - smaller hitbox
Shield - magic options absorb bullets (like R-type bits)
Treasure - ???

TRAP15remix??? :mrgreen:

Dimahoo - Golden
Vludi - 5,436,270 - All - 48 Items - Mame

Golden is a powerhouse, more people should try it.
Anyway not a big fan of this game, I'm too bad for it, prefer the older Mahous.

Sorry, haven't looked at this in over a decade! Was curious if the thread was still here - glad to see somebody's maintaining it.

My high score for Karte was on a Japanese Great Mahou Daisakusen PCB. At the time I didn't know that there was a difference in difficulty between the 2 versions.
