Story - It is the 666th year of the world of magic. The Black Slayer, Demon King of the Underground Dark Empire, has extended the world of darkness and weakened the power of King Crimson whose wisdom has guided the world of magic for generations.

The 16th Crimson Emperor Ronnie 4th entrusted his two infant sons, Randy and Zack, to his faithful servant Ozzy. The three escaped the forces from another dimension in the hope to bring light back into the world.

The next 17 years were difficult but Randy, Zack, and Ozzy devoted themselves to the cause of Holy Magic Justice. The Black Slayer had further extended his empire over the countryside and the interdimensional forces were even more powerful.

Randy needed to find the Royal Coat Of Arms of the Crimson to battle the demons. He set out alone to carry out the will of his surrogate father Ozzy who had passed away. Thus begins the Legend Of The Holy Magic King's Justice.

Just a little info about this game, it was released only in Japan for the famicom, the visuals look a lot like Castlevania and it plays similar but you attack with magic instead of a whip. It also has knockback if you get hit so a lot of cheap deaths

This is the hardest game i currently know, much harder than Ghosts 'n goblins and Battletoads so beating it even with save states will be extremely tough, and hardcore mode i'm not even going to think about that... lol

This game is absolutely awesome. I was introduced to it not too long ago. I would HIGHLY recommend save states to lower frustration until you get awesome at the game. The final stage's boss does NOT trigger the achieve correctly.
