    Defenders of Oasis, known as Shadam Crusader: Harukanaru Oukoku (シャダム・クルセイダー ~遙かなる王国~) in Japan, is a Sega Game Gear RPG. It was released in Japan in September 1992, and in North America in Winter 1992.

    The game takes place in a setting influenced by the Arabian Nights and ancient Middle-Eastern culture, like Beyond Oasis and Prince of Persia.

    A Sega Master System GG2SMS hack was released in June 2017.
