KIKI KAIKAI / Taito / Arcade

Hmm ... is this the primitive predecessor of Pocky & Rocky? You play as a shrine maiden running through a temple (but eventually leading on to other levels of course), with the ability to huck a magic talisman and wave a magic stick at various ghosts, monsters and zombies that file out to attack you.

As with much of Taito's 1980s arcade output, it looks nice and is creative, but is hampered by a character that moves really slowly and stiffly, and generally over-demanding difficulty.
