Shiten Myouou or Shiten-Myooh (四天明王 lit. 4 Dawning Kings) is a 1990 action game by Sigma Enterprises. Sage's Creation published it in the US under the name Shadow Blasters.

Gameplay

You play as one of four people in six levels you can play in any order. Each person can use a normal magic attack with A (hold to charge; you can also attack straight up by holding Up with A), jump with B, and fire a special attack with C. You can change people at any time with Start — but once a person dies once, they are gone for the rest of the game.
