Power Blade is an underdog platformer by the folks at Taito, highly reminiscent of the Mega Man series. The player takes control of NOVA, a hero who looks a lot like Arnold Schwarzenegger and who must destroy a maverick computer with a boomerang. This is one of those obscure games that you may wish you had played as a kid.

In this run, scrimpeh saves 2:30.00 minutes over the previous movie via route changes made possible by new glitches involving ladders and grenades. Details are in the author's comments.

This is another one of the "umpteenth version" movies.

Cheez and WalkerBoh had a long competition at this game, but then Genisto came and beat them both by improving Walker's previous attempt by 1:54.

We recommend reading the author's comments.

The movie features very precise boomerang handling, a glitch to cut the boss-fights short and other tricks to keep it quick.

In this updated run Aglar decimates the previous version by 45 seconds thanks to improved frame precision in what was once a highly contested game, now revived.

Fixes the mistake in Stage 4

The time is identical to the submission because of frame rules. Only the screen in which the mistake happens and the final boss are different, because of RNG.
