Mystic Defender (based on the Japanese title Kujakuō 2: Geneijō) is a side-scrolling platform game. It is the sequel to SpellCaster for the Sega Master System. However, in this sequel the RPG elements have been omitted in favour of side-scrolling platform gameplay.

In this game you play Joe Yamata (Kujaku) on a quest to rescue Alexandra from the villainous Zao, who is using her soul to resurrect his master Zareth in Azuchi castle. You have four types of magic to attack with and you can charge your blasts as well as change the magic type mid-game.

In America the main character sprite is wearing pants in the US version but in the Japanese version he is wearing a ceremonial dress.

Interestingly enough, both sprites were programmed into the American cartridge so if you put in a Japanese system the character would have the ceremonial dress and if you put the same cart in the American system he would have pants and short hair.
