Kujakuou (孔雀王) is an action game by Sega for the Sega Master System tying into Makoto Ogino and Shueisha's Kujakuou manga series. When released overseas, Sega renamed the game SpellCaster, and changed some graphics/names (e.g. the protagonist Kujaku was renamed Kane and given a different design). It would be followed by Kujakuou 2: Geneijou on the Sega Mega Drive.
Evil forces have been attacking temples, but no one knows who or why. Daikak, the head of Summit Temple, calls on a magician, Kane, to fight this evil.
Outside: jumps. shoots a ball of magic; hold for stronger attacks. There are a variety of magic spells you can perform: opens the menu to select a spell, returning to the game and holding then pressing Down casts it. There are also various items, weapons, and armor to obtain.
Within temples: You can do a variety of things within temples; the commands should be self-explanatory. Use "Move" to leave.
