Unfortunately, Devil World simply doesn't feature enough content. Though the levels take place in the same maze, they do at least offer some variety, but there still are only a total of three of them. Devil World can essentially be seen as Pac-Man with a twist, and it's interesting enough to be worth playing for that reason, but you'll run out of things to do too quickly. You can drag a friend to Hell with you for some two-player simultaneous co-op, but that doesn't add much to the experience beyond the inherent fun of playing games with friends. You’d probably expect more from the dream team that would go on to bring us classics like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda. If you ignore its failure to live up to its pedigree, though, Devil World is a satisfying enough game, one worth checking out if you've ever played Pac-Man and found yourself wishing it had more hellfire.
Devil World is certainly more intriguing as a historical footnote than a game (it’s solid B-tier Nintendo), but anyone who wants to delve deeper into Nintendo’s Japan-only works should seek it out. And by seek it out, I mean download it. It’s still not available in the States in any form.
Anyway, all in all, Devil World is a fun game, don't expect to spend hours on this one though, but it is a good time killer every once in a while.
