Power Blade is an underdog platformer by the folks at Taito, highly reminiscent of the Mega Man series. The player takes control of NOVA, a hero who looks a lot like Arnold Schwarzenegger and who must destroy a maverick computer with a boomerang. This is one of those obscure games that you may wish you had played as a kid.

In this run, scrimpeh saves 2:30.00 minutes over the previous movie via route changes made possible by new glitches involving ladders and grenades. Details are in the author's comments.
