Cheats For Magical Hat Adventures
1Extra LivesOn level 1 and 3 (and others), are red flagpoles which sway if you jump on them. Jump, then float straight down to the yellow tip. The pole bends in the middle, one of the red spots in the pole turns white, and you get an extra life. Get loads of lives.

Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Magical Hat Adventure
RELEASED:         1990
TYPE:             Platform
LANGUAGE:         Japanese

PREMISE:          Another run-and-jump based on a popular Japanese kid's
                  cartoon series, which kinda reminds me of a poor Dragon
                  Ball clone.

IMPRESSIONS:      Yet another Mario World wannabe, right down to the
                  superdeformed graphics.  Not as blatant as Doraemon in
                  its intentions, but not even half as good.

VARIATIONS:       The actual Japanese title is Majikaru Hashito no
                  Butsutobi Turbo! Daibouken, which translates to Magical
                  Flying Hat Turbo Adventure.  This was released in English
                  speaking markets with a considerable graphics facelift
                  under the title Decap Attack, sporting a mock-horror
                  motif with a headless mummy as the hero.  My thanks to
                  fellow Sega fan Matt Boehland for pointing out the
                  similarity that the rest of us had missed all this time.

The game rocked! It had a cool soundtrack. Unfortunately, it was too easy (especially using my auto fire joystick to stay floating into the air).

Both Magic Hat and Decap attack are great games, I beat Decap Attack once and the enemies on the intro's look like they crawled right from a Monty Python comic sketch - they look great.
