The Legend of Zelda: Triforce of the Gods (Mandarin: 塞尔达传说-三神之力) is an NES demake of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past by bootleg game developer Mars Production. The gameplay and layout of the game is very similar to A Link to the Past, albeit constrained by the hardware it was developed for: some dungeons from the original game are entirely absent, the graphics are simplified, and the music consists of original tracks that include some Chinese folk songs and classical music. Another interesting difference in this demake is that Link collects coins instead of rupees.

crazyjesse completes the game in record time by exploiting a few glitches related to the Pegasus Boots to make Link move really, really fast, all the time. The author even manipulates which music tracks play throughout the run so that the least laggy music is selected.

A note about the Moldorm fight in this movie: the game crashes on a real console whenever Moldorm is hit by anything other than a dash attack, but curiously this does not happen when emulated. In the interest of console accuracy for the movie, the author chooses to complete the fight as it would need to be if it were being played on a console, rather than a possibly more optimal but emulator-only method.

Live commentary for this run can be viewed on Twitch.
