Magician Lord is a high-fantasy side-scrolling action platformer developed and released by Alpha Denshi for arcades (running Neo-Geo MVS hardware) on April 26, 1990 (in Japan), August 22, 1990 (in North America), and 1991 (in Europe). It was also released for the Neo Geo AES for all regions during their respective launch dates.

One of the four games launched with both arcade and home Neo Geo systems (along with Baseball Stars Professional, Mahjan Kyoretsuden: Nishinihonhen, and NAM-1975), players control the wizard Elta as he travels through the fictional realm of Gadasius to find eight tomes of power and stop the plans of the evil wizard Gal-Agiese (who seeks to raise Az-Atous, the spirit of destruction).

Along with summoning magical energy projectiles, Elta can transform into one of six powerful warrior forms (each with their own unique attacks) by collecting combinations of colored orbs.

It was later ported to the Neo Geo CD (as a launch title) on September 9, 1994 and digitally re-released for both the Wii (via Virtual Console on October 29, 2007 by D4) and PlayStation Network (on December 21, 2010 by SNK Playmore). It was also included in the 2008 SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 compilation for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Wii.
