Elemental Master is a top down shoot 'em up video game developed by Tecno Soft for the Sega Mega Drive and released in 1990 in Japan, and in 1993 in North America by Renovation Products.

StoryEdit

Long ago in the fantasy kingdom of Lorelei, the followers of an evil being called Gyra were sealed underneath the city’s castle. However, a seemingly heroic sorcerer known as Aryaag betrayed the king’s trust and unleashed the power of Gyra on the kingdom with the intention of letting the evil influence spread. Laden, the strongest sorcerer in the kingdom, was ready to attack Aryaag, but was stopped in shock when Aryaag revealed himself to be Laden’s brother Roki. Backed by Gyra’s most dedicated followers, Roki banished Laden from the conquered kingdom. However, Laden vows to stop Gyra’s influence from spreading and to stop Gyra’s ambitions.

GameplayEdit

The game is autoscrolling upwards. The player can choose to either shoot up or down. There are different weapons (types of magic) available, based on (naturally) the elements. Of the seven levels the game has, the player can choose the order of the first four. Audio

The soundtrack was composed by Toshiharu Yamanishi, who also worked on Thunder Force III, Thunder Force IV and Devil Crash (one song from Elemental Master was remixed into a new version in Devil Crash). The style of the soundtrack is synthrock with classical vibes.

ReceptionEdit

Illusionware gave it the grade A/92% and stated that "Elemental Master strikes the perfect balance between graphics, music and gameplay" and a "excellent piece of gaming history". Sega-16 writer Benjamin Galway gave the grade 9 out of 10 and hailed the game with the words "It's a terrific, fairly original take on the vertical scrolling shooter and yet another feather in Technosoft's cap".
