Moon Crystal (ムーンクリスタル), a platformer only released in Japan, follows a boy on his quest to save his family. The mechanics of the game are slightly reminiscent of Ninja Gaiden and Prince of Persia, with rather detailed animation.

This is a 16.07 second improvement to the previous movie using better lag reduction and some new tricks.

Total movies: 3

Items that can be obtained include boots which allow a double-jump maneuver, and a sword, which causes multiple hits when the character's energy is low. Bosses are defeated quickly by using this sword power-up, after taking enough damage to activate its extra power.

Selected comments from the author: It is a gem of a platformer released only in Japan. The controls have some Prince of Persia in them, but are not as demanding. The music is great and the graphics are pretty good. I'm surprised the game was never ported to the US or Europe.

The bosses of this game can be difficult due to a glitch that improperly resets the boss's vulnerability after being hit in certain circumstances.

This is 231-frame improvement to the precessor movie using better lag optimization and better use of death to save time.

Completes the first five levels and goes up to the first boss(es) of the 6th. 162 frames ahead of the currently published run, again due to reducing lag and optimizing movement as much as possible. I'm estimating a total of 200-220 frames saved by the end of the run. Made entirely with TASEditor in FCEUX 2.2.0
