Mamorukun Curse! approaches the hell shooter genre with a unique variety of selectable characters that are designed for players of different skill levels. Gamers unfamiliar with the hell shooter genre will find the game easier if they play as ether Mamoru, Kinya, Nowa, or Luchino. These characters come equipped with bullet spreads that cover most of the playfield. The remaining characters – Beniko, Mayuno, and Fululu – are designed for veteran players because they are more difficult to play and they start with smaller bullet spreads.
