- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
The valiant knight Kuros, who has now grown eyeballs on the outside of his helmet, must again fight off the evil wizard Malkil. This task is accomplished mainly by finding an artifact in every level, giving it to a corresponding oversized animal to get into the level boss' lair, and promptly beating him up with a level-specific attack spell. However, this run manages to use a glitch to keep the attack spell for several levels instead of losing it at the level's end.

This is an improvement of 1 minute and 14.41 seconds over the previous TAS, thanks to much better optimization. The final boss fight was especially improved thanks to a frame war between several of the authors.

You can watch this run being played back on a real console.

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.
