Magical Taruruto-kun (まじかる☆タルるートくん) is a 1992 action game for the Sega Mega Drive by Sega and Game Freak to tie into Tatsuya Egawa's/Shueisha's Magical Taruruuto-kun manga, which had been recently turned into an anime by Toei Animation.

Gameplay

C jumps; C in mid-air lunges forward. By default, B attacks. When standing next to an object, B will grab that object; B again throws it at enemies. Objects can only be used in the area they are found. You get a new magic power after every stage; hit Select to bring up a menu to choose one and A to use.
