Mulan is another platform game from the ex-Chuanpu game series, it was possibly developed by ex-workers from that company and published by X Boy for the Sega Genesis. It's interesting how many of the game aspects from Pocket Monster and other games of the series remain in this title. In fact, the game shows the same Option Menu with changed graphics, the same life counter and the same glitches implying the enemy respawn, the glitched damage sound effect and the broken jumping ability. Moreover, the character movement speed is practically the same and even they recycled the same sound effect for the collectibles.
Now let's talk about the exclusive features from the game. Unlike its predecessors, the game has four different stages, made up by some levels (three for the first one and a fourth implying a boss battle) and a new game mechanism: a sword-based attack. Because of the last feature, there's a new glitch in the game, with which you can glide while you keep pressing the attack button. The game has some graphics and music stolen from other official releases, like a background and monkey sprite stolen from The Lion King Sega Genesis game and perhaps a sound effect from Woody, the little cowboy doll from Toy Story Sega Genesis version of the game.
Finally, the game turns out to be a deadly trap in terms of difficulty, as you rely in faith jumps in the first two stages, which are vertically long, and the enemy quantity increases progressively to insane levels. You'll be lucky if you manage to complete the first stages without losing a single life, and even that way, you'll have a nightmarish experience with the first boss, Li Shang, as it's amount of health is abussive, you'll be almost always cornered by him and you won't be able to counter his long-range attacks everytime, as their scope is random and the block collision with the stick is broken (this resulting in getting hurt while trying to reflect the attack). Even if you did well and took little damage, his movement pattern is random, so it's likely he'll catch you up as soon as you change direction.
If you're going to play this, I suggest changing the difficulty to easy, unless you like to stress yourself playing games, just like me...
