Demon Sword (1989) is the kind of a game that Legend of Kage should have been.

It features a hero named Victar, who can easily jump on a tall tree (and sometimes over it, since he just can't jump much lower) and is willing to defeat the evil demon that conquered the world. The key to defeating it is Victar's sword, which is conveniently broken into pieces that must be collected over the span of the game.

So watch his sword get bigger and more powerful every few minutes, until its wielder finally reaches maturity decides it's big enough to save the world.

Xipo comes back to this game with yet another large improvement: This time 108 seconds were saved over the previous movie. It was achieved by manipulating enemies to drop speed upgrades upon their death.

Note: This movie was created using an overdumped ROM. It needs "Demon Sword (U) [o1].nes" to playback properly.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
