The Video Game Heroines Project

MIGHTY MAIDEN... THE BELLS TOLL FOR BATTLE

Game: Yume Kojo Doki Doki Panic (Dream Factory: Doki Doki Panic)

Heroine: Lina, Mama

System: Famicon Disk System

Year: 1987

Developer: Nintendo

Genre: Platformer

Etc: This game would be the framework from which Super Mario Bros. 2 (US) would be made. While the stage graphics remained mostly unchanged, the system graphics varied wildly. Also, while Lina and her ability to levitate was altered to become Princess Peach, Mama with her higher jumps was altered to become Mario’s brother Luigi!
