Legacy of the Wizard (1987), released in Japan as "ドラゴンスレイヤーIV Dragon Slayer IV: Drasle Family", is actually a part of Dragon Slayer series. This is a nonlinear platforming adventure game, in which you gain control over one member of the Drasle family to explore the vast dungeon filled with mind bending puzzles and obscure secrets.

The goal of the game is to retrieve a powerful sword named Dragon Slayer, protected by four magical crowns, to kill an evil dragon trapped in the nearby labyrinth. Each member of the family has different abilities, and the portion of the labyrinth only he/she can go into to retrieve one of the crowns. However, this prerequisite was circumvented by the clever use of certain new glitches.

According to the author, this movie employs a completely different route, better luck manipulation and some new tricks that result in a 3:38 faster movie than the previous version.

Moral of this movie: Beware of short fat men, for they're surprisingly quick.

The Goonies II is a sequel to The Goonies, despite the fact that there is no sequel movie. In it, you control Mikey, who must rescue all of his friends from the Fratellis.

While we already have a published movie of this game, in this one the author collects all items and secrets. Details about the route are in the author's comments.

This is an improvement over McBobX's previous run by 3:12.74 minutes.

Whomp ‛Em is a somewhat lesser known action-packed platforming game.

Although it may not seem like it, this game is somewhat similar to Mega Man in idea. There are multiple stages you can visit in any order and you gain new abilities from winning each level. Like Mega Man games, the new abilities include platform generating items which the author uses to create many shortcuts.
