Author's comments and explanations:
Hello everyone!!Nice to meet you again.Let's have a look what movie I bring to us this time. Mabe,this game is about to be forgotten.I had never finished this game when I was a child. So,I improved this TAS

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEU 0.98.25
  • Manipulates luck
  • Take damage to save time
  • Super-Fire!(up+B)


Try my best,5120 frames in my improvement. I had a better control on the power of weapon when I fight. I chose the spear expet for sword,though the spear has less power than sword.Because I can fight with Super-Fire 5 times! The BOSS is so easy to kill :)

Stage by stage comments

STAGE1( 283frames faster)

Improving some details.I jumb to take damage to let Astyanax can go forward all the time. Have a good control on the power of weapon to kill the BOSS

STAGE2to5(3794 frames faster)

Whith the Super-Fire,the BOSS was killed more faster. Another,The lag.I also fight with Super-Fire to avoid so much lag. Some times,I get spell up!

STAGE6 (1043 frames faster)

Have a good control on the power of weapon to kill all the BOSS.Saved so many times, PS:The final BOSS is so cool!:) Dragon!


Like Walker Boh said ,the game is really stupid.I finished it.Finished my dream in my memory of child. I'll hope you enjoy it!!
NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. Oh! I also corrected the ROM name.
  • You indicated Astyanax (U).nes
  • I updated it to Astyanax (U) [!].nes

Truncated: This game seems to be hard to optimize. Even though this is probably not perfect, it is a big improvement over an old movie, I'm accepting it.

Bisqwit: Encoding. Desyncs for me at around frame 1360. Not encoding.

adelikat: My turn!
