DoReMi Fantasy: Milon’s Adventure is a platform game developed and published by Hudson Soft for the Super Famicom. The game is a sequel to the 1988 NES game, Milon’s Secret Castle, and was released exclusively in Japan on March 22, 1996. It was later re-released for the Wii’s Virtual Console in North America in March 2008, and in Europe in September 2008.
In the game, Milon, a young boy, heads in a mission to restore the music from the forest of his hometown and rescue his friend, the fairy Alis, from an evil wizard known as Amon, who is also responsible for the music’s disappearance. To do this, he must collect a series of magic instruments that are being held by Amon’s strongest minions. However, said instruments have had their power locked away after Amon corrupted them, so Milon must also collect stars to purify the instruments.
Similar to the Super Mario series, Milon can jump on enemies and stun them. Milon’s health level is reflected by the clothes he is wearing. If he has not been touched, his clothes are colored green. When he is hit, his clothes will changed to blue, and later, red. If he is touched while wearing red, the player loses a life. The player is able to restore health by picking up overalls power-ups; one pair of overalls restores one unit of health, while twin overalls restore two. Unlike the first game, dying once does not necessarily mean game over, as the player can collect extra lives throughout the level. Milon can collect a variety of items to aid him throughout the level. These include winged boots that allow him to slow his descent by holding the B button in midair, bubblegum that will save him from a fall down a bottomless pit (but is consumed after it is used), and keys that are required to clear maze stages.
