Devil World is a scrolling maze game, strikingly similar to the classic Pac-Man, only with an undeniable religious bent. Collect dots in an automatically-scrolling maze directed by the devil himself, use crosses to power up and destroy his minions, and be careful not to get crushed by the walls. After collecting all the dots, you must collect bibles to seal up the source of the enemies and make the devil temporarily retreat. After this, there is a timed bonus stage where the player can control the scrolling, then the next round starts the cycle over from the beginning.

References to the game

References to this game were completely excised from the North American release of Super Smash Bros. Melee -- the game featured a trophy of the main character, which was made unobtainable, presumably as a minor matter of censorship. If the trophy is obtained in the North American version via a hack, there is a full English description present, but the game title is erroneously listed as Demon World.

This decision was reversed for the sequel, which featured an assist trophy of the Devil, as well as trophies and stickers from the game, and the content was left intact.
