Light Crusader is an action-adventure game developed by Treasure and published by Sega for the Sega Genesis console in 1995. It was later released on the Wii Virtual Console.

It is similar in gameplay to Landstalker, blending role-playing video game, action-adventure and platform video game elements in much the same way.


The game is played from an isometric viewpoint. Players can execute simple sword slashes as well as using the four magic elements, move freely, jump, and push objects. Gameplay is a mix of action, puzzle solving, and platforming for the most part, with the usual role-playing staples like towns, shops, equipment, and spellcasting. The player controls Sir David as he travels through an assortment of dungeons, battling creatures such as 'slime', solving puzzles to advance and saving those who were kidnapped.


An evil wizard named Ragno Roke is angered by the queen's rejection of his marriage proposal. He decides to reawaken the evil demon Ramiah to get revenge. Sir David is offered to come over to Green Row after his journey. He has not been there for a long time and was waiting to return. However, the king informs David that townspeople have been disappearing. The king tells him to search for the missing people. By the end of the game, David confronts both Roke and Ramiah. Roke tells David that he does not need the life of the missing people to revive Ramiah and that his own life should be enough. Upon Ramiah's defeat, Roke dies and the missing people come back.
