- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Fighting
This is a platform beat 'em up based on the anime series Hokuto no Ken. According to the manual, Kenshirou, the main character, has to save the people from the evil Emperor Heaven. The game itself, however, features no story whatsoever, but a lot of platform action instead. You have to run quickly through the levels (there is a time limit), punching and kicking your enemies, causing them to fly away or to explode. Occasionally you will meet a boss, visit secret areas behind doors and collect various power-ups.

This run improves the previous movie by a little over 20 seconds, thanks to greater optimization and a surprising new glitch for beating some bosses very quickly.

There is also a run of the precursor to this game.
