The valiant knight Kuros, who has now grown eyeballs on the outside of his helmet, must again fight off the evil wizard Malkil. This task is accomplished mainly by finding an artifact in every level, giving it to a corresponding oversized animal to get into the level boss' lair, and promptly beating him up with a level-specific attack spell. However, this run manages to use a glitch to keep the attack spell for several levels instead of losing it at the level's end.

This is an improvement of 1 minute and 14.41 seconds over the previous TAS, thanks to much better optimization. The final boss fight was especially improved thanks to a frame war between several of the authors.

This script draws the position of the elementals during the final fight with Malkil in Ironsword: Wizards & Warriors II on a canvas. Kuros's position also is drawn. To keep it compact, coordinates on the canvas are scaled to half the value in the game. By default, the area drawn is 1.5 by 1.25 screens large and focused around the middle peak of Icefire Mountain.

Keys are defined that allow you to toggle each elemental on/off, restore Kuros to full health or full magic (so you do not need separate cheats), and clear the canvas. There are toggles for the health restoration, magic restoration, and canvas clearing to be done automatically.

Another cheap 1 frame improvement, though this one required a tiny bit more modifying to make work.

Tried a few alternate strategies, then gave up and improved rchokler's improvement.
