Join Magic Boy as he attempts to become a master wizard, and he does this by shooting enemies, putting them in a bag, and throwing them away. He also must get through four areas: Sand Land, Wet World, Plastic Place, and Future Zone. There are also several power-ups that help him on his quest.

Initial copies of this game came with a bonus title Cool Croc Twins, another cutesy platform title which the company had released the previous year. Both games fitted on the same disk, which one reviewer felt was a bad sign as to Magic Boy's quality.
