Lord of the Sword is an action RPG for the Master System, and possibly Sega's answer to Zelda II.

Unused Music

To do:
An FM version exists. Procure a recording of it and upload it here.
PSG Rendition Notes
Purpose unknown. Its length could have fit for a Continue screen, but it also sounds like it was intended to connect seamlessly to the main theme.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

Japan Taiwan International

For the international release, a "the" was added to the title, and the shield was redrawn at a smaller scale and moved into the "D" of "SworD".

Bad Ending

Japan (Used) International

The Japanese version has an alternate ending in which Baljinya suddenly gets attacked and destroyed. This ending is gotten if the player has continued at least 5 times.

It technically still exists in the international version, with the line fully translated, but was dummied out by increasing the continue requirement to 10, making it impossible to get by normal means as the game only gives you 9 continues total.

Other Differences

When selecting Continue after a death (or resetting the console), the Japanese version starts you at the last town or village you entered, whereas the international version starts you at the beginning of the area you died/reset in.
