Author's comments and explanations:
This video was recorded on FCE Ultra (the modified version, available on this site).

This is for the infamously awful NES role playing game, Heroes of the Lance, well known for its sluggish controls and boring gameplay.

The game runs from beginning to end, aiming for as fast a time as possible. In order to do this, I avoided fighting most enemies simply by leaping through them (resulting in damage). The only bug I've exploited is a small glitch regarding a door's location near the end of the dungeon. You can enter a door without actually being near it.

The toughest part of making the movie was mostly just finding the route through, then following it as quickly as I could. The only enemies that really gave me trouble were those dragons - they're tough to jump through (though I managed it once) and they hit hard.

If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at saltyspage@hotmail.com

Bisqwit: Rejecting because this movie doesn't seem to interest the watchers enough.
