- Genre: Adventure
The Faery Tale Adventure is an action RPG released for Amiga in 1986 and ported to the Genesis in 1991. The plot revolves around three brothers who go on a quest to defeat an evil Necromancer and retrieve a Talisman from him.

The game world is gigantic and normally requires hours of adventuring around to collect five Golden Statues to access a hidden city to find a magical flower, which allows the brothers to walk across the lava protecting the Necromancer and defeat him.

However, Aqfaq just skips all of this, using health potions and incredibly precise luck manipulation to walk straight across the lava and recover the Talisman in a little over 20 minutes.
