This movie completes the European version of Rygar with just 1 item (grappling).
  • It dies four (4) times intentionally- two of which are necessary to complete the game like I did.
  • It also takes damage to speed up movement.
I thank DJ_FozzBozz for informing about the most important trick - dying in a way that leads from boss room to another - and I wish him luck in beating my movie :)
I played the European (PAL) version instead of USA (NTSC) version for just one reason:
  • Rygar jumps farther in the PAL version than in the NTSC version.
Jumping over the river is not possible in the USA version. In PAL, it's possible to just make it.
As a drawback, the enemies blink longer in PAL than in NTSC. Fights take longer.
I first attempted to create the movie with VirtuaNES, but I couldn't handle VirtuaNES - it was too clumsy tool for me.
Thus I ended up breaking my own rule - this is a PAL submission made with Famtasia. It plays 16.7% too fast. Famtasia shows the time as 09:13.
Note that this time is not comparable to USA version, because the USA version is different, as mentioned before.
In this movie, I spend some time collecting experience (power) before going to fight against Ligar (the last boss). It's possible to skip that step, but then the fight would take a lot longer.
I could have got enough mind points to cast the power up spell, gaining more speed and length for the weapon, but it wasn't useful, and it would have been lost in deaths anyway.
It's not possible to gain the powerup spell to use against Ligar with this method, because Ligar's room is separated from the rest of the world by a pit that can't be crossed without an item I didn't get.
It's also not possible to go straight to the rocky world boss instead of meeting the forest world boss first, because you normally need to use the same item to get there.

Bisqwit: Gave DJ_FozzBozz a few days to announce victory over my result... Didn't happen, so publishing it now :)
