This movie completes the PAL Rygar with only one item: the grappling hook.

And what an awesome movie it is: it demonstrates as many glitches of the game as possible. Some of the glitches save time radically, some save a little of time, and some don't save time at all but just look cool.

It uses death as a shortcut, but in contrary to the usual, this death does not put Rygar backwards in the game, but instead warps him forward by a couple of levels.
A somewhat similar trick can be done in Mega Man 2, but in Rygar, it places him truely in the next level instead of just virtually.

We recommend reading the author's comments.

Note: Famtasia plays PAL games at NTSC speed, that is 16.7% too fast. Thus the encodes are significantly faster than the movie should actually be. The real length is 08:26, which is 2:38 faster than the previous version by Bisqwit.

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.
