- Major skip glitch

- Genre: RPG
Phantasy Star II, released in 1989, introduces us to the anti-utopian world of Mota, now dominated by the Mother Brain computer. Rolf, a government agent, is assigned the task of finding out why Mother Brain is malfunctioning, and yet his role in the destiny of Algo is far, far greater than anyone could imagine. Anyone, save one lone Esper. As the genetic construct Nei, the soldier Rudo, and others join him, can he topple the tyranny of Mother Brain and free Algo from an unholy evil?

Rolf and his friends, tired of all the violence they've seen, decide to take a pacifist route to save the Algol system with zero bloodshed. This run improves the author's previous run by about 4 minutes thanks to some minor optimizations and a route change which even changed the branch to this movie. For more details, read the author's comments.

This run improves the old run by about 4 minutes through new glitches, including one that abuses the customized names of the characters to obtain some important items very early on.

Phantasy Star IV, released in Japan as Phantasy Star: The End of the Millennium, is a role-playing video game released for the Mega Drive/Genesis in Japan in 1993 and Europe and North America in 1995. It is the fourth and final game in the original Phantasy Star series, concluding the story of the Algol Star System. Phantasy Star IV kept many of the gameplay elements of the previous game, including turn-based battles, overhead exploration, and magic spells. It received mixed reviews upon its release, but has been subject to positive critical retrospectives.

In this movie, Jiseed exploits recently discovered complex glitches such as save warping, spawning a non-existent extra character, macro corruption, and others. Severe memory corruption allows to finish the game in record time by skipping several crucial parts of the plot. See the author's notes and the discussion thread for more information on the glitches.
