Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero dies while defeating the first level boss. The game then decides to freak out and end right there, declaring the rest of the story unnecessary.
While this run appears to be slower than the previously published movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 16 frames if emulation differences are not accounted for.
Rolan's Curse is an action-adventure game that's very similar to The Legend of Zelda, right down to the plot. The people of Rolan are being terrorized by the evil rule King Barius, who escaped from his imprisonment, and monsters have run amuck thanks to him. It's now up to you, with your trusty sword and subweapons you can collect, to stop him and save Rolan.
In this run, not only does ThunderAxe31 end the game early by glitching the first boss into letting him win the entire game, he also uses a password to give his character maxed stats so he can beat the game even quicker.
