"The President has been kidnapped by ninjas! Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the President?"

The answer is a resounding "yes", though we're not sure if Karnov counts as a ninja or not.

In this run, Kirkq utilizes obscure and unusual jump patterns to move quickly. During the game's lengthy scrolling sections, optimization shifts more toward entertainment.

Dragon's Lair is much better known in its incarnations for other platforms as an FMV game with only slight amounts of control over the player's action. The NES version is more of a traditional platformer, but very smooth animation for the era and funny-looking characters inspired by the cartoon graphics of the other versions - this includes the final boss, who isn't seen very much in this run thanks to abuse of the game mechanics.

The Japanese version is used because the US version has considerably slower gameplay (almost twice as slow).

This is an improvement of around five seconds to the previous run from 2004 (making the old run one of the oldest on the site).
