- Takes damage to save time
- Major skip glitch
- Genre: Platform
An army of monsters has invaded Monster World, prompting the young Shion to undertake a quest to save his land. His adventure takes him through various environments--desert, forest, and even underwater--in order to gain the items necessary to progress.

In this run, The8bitbeast uses movement glitches and strategic pausing to skip entire sections of the game. Details are in the author's comments.

Note: One of the glitches causes music not to play on the next screen. The author has provided an encode with music restored here.

We also have a run of the Genesis version.

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.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
