Gameplay

The player can look at demons' data, featuring statistical information. Additionally, the demons' high resolution (512×480px) artwork can be viewed, and a note can be seen for each demon, which is comparable to compendium entries in later installments of the franchise. These descriptions would later be included in the PlayStation Portable version of Devil Summoner.

The calculation for demons' magic attack stat is incorrect and results in the stat value being halved (rounding down).

Shei and bosses after Tendou are not accessible until every demon's artwork is viewed.

Bonuses on the disc

CD audio

If played in a standard CD player, there are two audio tracks. The first audio track is 7 minutes and 58 seconds long track of the developers speaking, and the second audio track is an arrangement of "Otherworld Dungeon (Ancient Tomb)" while a man speaks over it.

Omake images

There are seven omake (bonus) images in the OMAKE directory, along with a read me file stating that the images are for personal use only and should not be redistributed.

Text files

There are three text files in the root directory. SMP_ABS.TXT describes what the software is, SMP_BIB.TXT is a bibliography of the books used for information on the demons, and SMP_CPY.TXT is a copyright notice.

The bibliography, with original book titles added and authors' initials expanded (for works not originally in Japanese), is as follows:
