NES Strider completed fast while taking only one disk and one key.

Hiryu shows off some acrobatic tricks in this run, but the main highlight is the abuse of glitches that allows this game to be finished in under 6 minutes. The glitches are, not surprisingly, wall zipping and passing through locked doors.

Apart from the name, this game has virtually nothing to do with the arcade and Genesis versions of Strider.

Be forewarned, as this game contains many seizure-inducing moments.
