Alisia Dragoon (アリシアドラグーン) is a 1992 platformer for the Sega Mega Drive developed by Game Arts, with Japanese animation studio Gainax providing art and story and Mecano Associates providing music.

Story

The game's story is different in Japan and US/Europe:

  • Japan: Alisia is the daughter of a sorcerer killed by evil Baldour's followers after her father banished Baldour in a cocoon to outer space, which has since crashed back to Earth, leaving Alisia to defeat Baldour and his followers.
  • US/EU: Alisia is a female adventurer who is the only one who can destroy the evil delivered by a silver star that has returned to Earth (implied that Earth had managed to deal with it once before).

Gameplay

Alisia's primary attack is a lighting bolt that automatically targets enemies and splits itself as necessary; it is fired by pressing B. The longer B is held, the longer the shot lasts for. You have a limited supply of lightning energy which runs out as you use it; it will come back when you are not using it. C jumps. You also have a dragon following you and helping you attack on its own, though it takes its own damage too. Press A and use Up/Down to switch between dragons.
