Gaiapolis (known in Japan as ガイアポリス -黄金鷹の剣-, Gaiapolis: Sword of the Golden Falcon) is an arcade game released by Konami in May 1993. An unofficial Famicom port of the game was released by Thin Chen Enterprise the following year.

Plot[edit]

A medieval fantasy world filled with various monsters and under the hand of an evil king is on the edge of destruction. Only a small group of brave heroes (a prince named Gerard Himerce, a fairy named Elaine Shea, and a dragon warrior named Duke Galahad) dare to step forth to look for the legendary sword of the Golden Hawk, hidden in the flying citadel known as Gaiapolis, in order to topple the evil king and bring peace to the troubled land.

Elaine would go on to appear as a hidden playable character in Konami's 3D Arcade fighting game Battle Tryst, which was released in 1998.
