Galahad, also known as The Legend of Galahad, is a Sega Mega Drive action platform game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Electronic Arts. Released in late 1992, it is a port of the 1991 Commodore Amiga game Leander.

Galahad is notable for featuring anime-inspired visuals at a time where such was largely unknown in the West.

Gameplay

Galahad contains three worlds, with each world containing seven levels each. At the beginning of each level, Galahad is tasked with acquiring a hidden item and locating the exit. Items and currency can be acquired, and shops can be visited for the purchase of new weapons and armor.

Versions

Compared to the Commodore Amiga original, the Sega Mega Drive version changes various colors and gradients, features multiple parallax scrolling background planes, and sports a new design for the protagonist.
