Lord of the Sword (ロード オブ ソード) is a side-scrolling action-adventure game for the Sega Master System. As the knight Landau, you use your trusty sword and bow to slay evil and prove your worth as an aspirant king of Baljinya.

Here, Isotarge extensively uses an enemy boosting bug, along with glitchy pause and demo screen warps to beat the game at max speed.

This run improves Isotarge's previous effort by 32.60 seconds with new tricks and skips and better luck manipulation.
