Elemental Master (エレメンタルマスター) is a 1990 shoot-'em-up by Technosoft for the Sega Mega Drive released exclusively in Japan before Renovation brought it to the US in 1993.

Story

The hero Laden has approached the throne of the evil Gyra preparing for a fight, only to discover that Gyra is in fact Laden's long lost brother, Roki. Roki offers Laden the chance to join him in global domination; Laden refuses in shock, and Roki calls his servants, Clauss and Salome, to begin overthrowing King Lorelei and stealing the ELEMENTAL [sic]. The three disappear, leaving Laden to have to stop them by force.

Gameplay

You can choose one of four stages to play; you have one life but infinite continues and can choose a stage after each continue. After beating these four stages you must complete three more in order. A shoots forward and B shoots backward. You can rapidfire for a limited time; you cannot shoot in both directions simultaneously. Powerups are collected as usual. Since the screen always scrolls up, getting stuck at the bottom will kill you.

Each of the first four stages represents an ELEMENTAL; a powerup related to the four classical elements (fire, water, earth, air). Use C to switch between weapons.
