Cadash is a sword and sorcery video game which combines elements of both the role-playing video game genre and the platform genre. The game was originally released for Arcade machines by Taito in 1989, later ported to home video game consoles such as the TurboGrafx-16 in 1991, and the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1992.

It isn't the most straightforward of platformers, seeing how you can actually gain levels and buy items in this one. There are also mandatory items to fetch and quests to complete in order to advance.

In this run, Challenger beats the predecessor movie from nifboy by 6:22.27 minutes. The improvement is so huge thanks to using 2 players, new tricks and glitches, better boss fights, and greater movement precision.

Cadash isn't the most straightforward of platformers, seeing how you can actually gain levels and buy items in this one. There are also mandatory items to fetch and quests to complete in order to advance.

This is actually nifboy's third movie of Cadash, and the first one considered worth publishing. This means that the author hasn't just thrown something together, but rather planned and optimized everything carefully.

Note that the author dies twice in the movie. Both deaths were of course intentional and saved time. For details about these deaths as well as things that were skipped, see the submission text.

Optimized more frames during the cave, as well as some different exp route, and defeats a boss on some seconds.

Stage 1 is done! (I'll check this cave again once I finish this run).
