A 1985 ArcadeGame by Creator/{{Taito}}, set in the SuperDeformed fantasy world of the Alfalfa kingdom. The gameplay is similar to Taito's later and more famous EliminationPlatformer ''VideoGame/BubbleBobble'', though without a co-op mode. The player controls the little red witch Ptolemy, whose magic wand can transform monsters into cake. Ptolemy has to defeat all the enemies of 100 single-screen stages before challenging the dragon Dracolisk for a magic crystal.

Added DiffLines:

* PointOfNoContinues: You can't continue once past Round 98.
* StalkedByTheBell: The BigRedDevil will fly into the stage if Ptolemy takes too long to kill enemies. If there's only ''one enemy'' left, it's a different story.
