Devil World has similar gameplay to that of Pac-Man. It is the only game designed by Shigeru Miyamoto that has not been released in North America. This was due to Nintendo of America's strict policies on the use of religious icons in games, which were at their strictest level at the time of the game's original release. Players control Tamagon, a green dragon who decides to attack the "Devil World". He navigates through a series of mazes and touches crosses to power up and summon the ability to breathe fire and eat the dots in the maze. The large winged demon simply called "The Devil" dances at the top of the screen, pointing the direction for his minions to move the maze. Tamagon can be squished by getting caught between a maze wall and the moving outer boundary. After the first maze is cleared, the next objective is to get four Bibles, and put them into a seal. The Bibles give Tamagon the same powers as with the Crosses. After carrying them all into the seal, the Devil flies to the next maze. In-between levels, a bonus maze shows up where Tamagon collects six Bonus Boxes under a time limit. The pattern then repeats. Devil World was released in Japan on October 5, 1984, and later released in Europe in 1987. It was also released on the Wii Virtual Console for Japan as well as Europe and Australia in 2008.
