Carts.png This game has revisional differences.

Mystic Square is the 5th game in the Touhou series, and the last one for PC-98. This entry introduced more series staples, such as collecting items to get extra lives, and being able to play Stage 6 and get the good ending on Easy difficulty.

Also houses a Music Room that not only includes the main soundtrack, but also the soundtracks of the previous three games, given the additional subtitle of SPECIAL MIX and additional unused tracks that weren't in those three games (Dreamy pilot, Border Land, and Crescent Dream from Lotus Land Story SPECIAL MIX were mentioned in name in the trial version of Lotus Land Story music room, but their descriptions weren't accessible in-game). Oh, and the first game's music has been arranged (barring Shrine of the Wind).

CONG1.PI can be found inside 怪綺談1.DAT, and is almost visually similar to UDE.PI (which is used in the game).
