Wario the bad guy from Super Mario Land 2 is back in a game of his own, and this time he's hunting for treasure in a pyramid.

Unlike Wario Land 2 & 3, Wario can be hurt in this game.

Unlike its predecessor, this run is played on hard mode, making it some seconds longer despite more optimized game play.

This is the second run of this fast-paced and strange platformer. It's over 30 seconds faster than the old run by the same author.

In this run you see a cute anime babe speeding through levels like there is no tomorrow - when she's not covered in screen-size explosions and pixelated octopi.

El Viento is a fast-paced platform game with a cute anime babe as the lead character and depressing cut-scenes (which you won't see in this movie, of course). The author described the level design of this game as "straaange".

El Viento done 39.15 seconds faster than the previous run by the same author. The improvements come mainly from using frame advance.

Note: The movie file works also with El Viento (U) [!].gen rom.

Quote from the author: "A game that originally took everyone days to beat, finished in 36 minutes".
Features lots of secrets.
This video has been very well prepared on bigger scale, but it seems like smaller scale events like battles could have been optimized better. Nevertheless, this video might be quite a surprise to anyone who has used hours and hours exploring the Hyrule world. :)
Selected comments from the author (three messages, two before the movie's completion):

I found your web page containing NES speed runs, and they seemed like a fun little diversion.
I have tried my hand at making a Zelda speed run. =3
I managed a completion of the first quest at 00:37:45, but tragically, when I played it back, Link stops moving after getting the whistle for some reason. T_T

> How long did it take to make that? Do you have a map of that game
> or are you just a walking map of that game yourself? :)

Probably around 6 or 7 hours. I wasn't paying much attention to the time. ^_^; It was surprisingly not that difficult. I've played Zelda many times and I remember a lot of things about it, but I still did need some help. There's a "speed faq" on the game at http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/nes/file/legend_of_zelda_speed.txt and I used it as a guide, though I did deviate from it in some places (mainly, it tells you to go out of your way to get items that help you take less damage, which isn't necessary since I wasn't getting hit).

So much for waiting. ^^; I went and made a movie last night that's over a minute and a half shorter and actually works this time. It's at http://omake.studio-zoe.com/ZELDA.fmv A game that originally took everyone days to beat, finished in 36 minutes. =3 If you find it worthy of recording into avi format, let me know, though I'm wondering if a movie this large will make it hard to synch the video and audio. ^_^; In any case, enjoy!

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
