Due to it's obscurity, the game has become something of a very rare gem among shoot 'em ups, fetching ''very'' high prices in auctions. The game has also seen an overseas release 1993, as well as a handheld port on the GameBoyColor and a port on [[IBMPersonalComputer Windows 95]] in Japan, but since then, not much else.

'''''Magical Chase''''' is a ''very'' obscure ShootEmUp that once graced [[The16bitEraOfConsoleVideoGames the 16-bit era of video games]] in 1991 developed by Palsoft for TurboGrafx16 and published by Quest. The game is a horizontal shooter in the veins of the ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'' series and ''[[VideoGame/FantasticNightDreamsCotton Cotton: Fantasic Night Dreams]]'', but has some unique gameplay elements of its own to make stand out from other shooters. Unlike most shooters, your protagonist [[AvertedTrope isn't]] a OneHitPointWonder as she has a LifeMeter to withstand against some attacks.

The story centered around a CuteWitch named Ripple who's now afraid of her teacher for breaking a promise with her by accidentally releasing six devils sealed in a forbidden book. If Ripple doesn't fix this problem soon, her teacher will turn her into a frog as her punishment. With the help of two Elf-Stars, Topsy and Turvy, she sets out to seal the devils from whence they came before she spends the rest of years on a lilipad.
