This game sucks. In order to get the best ending, the game must be beaten several times in a row. Which wouldn't make much sense for a TAS. Four Symbols must be collected in order to beat the game.

The game uses signed subpixels. It changes the sign with the direction of the movement.

Tricks

Running
To run the B Button must be pressed several times. This is why there are so many pointless shots in this TAS.
Higher jumping
To perform a higher jumping running speed is needed or the character has to jump two times in a row.

Stage by stage comments

Overworld

The Overworld has 4 castles. Two on the actual overworld and two on the underground world. The overworld is just straight forward. In order to get to the underworld the helmet is needed, which is purchased in castle 2.

Castle 1 and 3

The castles are repeated, just with more enemies.
In the castle 1 the Roll of Magic, the Boots and the Symbol of Money are needed.
In the 3rd you get the Super Mantle and the Symbol of Family.
The Roll of Magic does stronger attacks and breaks some kind of blocks, with the boots blocks can be broken by jumping on them.

Castle 2 and 4

In the 2nd caste the Powered Helmet is found. There's also the Symbol of Knowledge.
The fourth castle hides the Symbol of Peace.

feos: Accepting for Vault. And clearing the branch (which is any%).

"Not good enough for wizard!" All i can think is, wow, what an asshole programmer. Run looks good to me, voted yes. As an aside, is the "good" ending really so incredible that it warrants playing through the game more than once?
Oh, play it cool. Play it cool. Here come the space cops.

Yes for Vault at least The game seems like a bad mix between Legacy of the wizard and Milon's secret castle

What an awful game ^_^ That one bit where you got your head kinda stuck in the ceiling and broke a bunch of blocks quickly was neat. And the ending text is hilarious. Run looks good, easy yes vote.

I remember this game from when I was young. Great work on it. Any chance you are going to do the FDS version of it?

The good ending requires you to max out the score, could take 4-5 play-throughs. The ending is totally not worth it. Brisulph did a play-through of the whole game, his reaction is priceless.
Phear my uber gimpyness!
