Saint Sword (セイントソード) is a 1991 action game for the Sega Mega Drive by Taito. Unlike Taito's previous Mega Drive releases, which were all ports or expanded remakes of Taito's earlier arcade games, this is an entirely original game made exclusively for the system.


The goal of each level is to find a key to an exit and then find that exit. B attacks. C jumps; Down+C jumps down from the current platform. Over the course of the game, you collect magical tokens that enable you to transform into various beings to complete your quest. Select pulls up the transformation menu and A transforms. Transformations only last a limited time and require magic power!

Progress is recorded through a password system.
