Nathan Graves is a vampire hunter trying to save his master, Morris, from the clutches of Dracula. Normally this would require collecting lots of different items as well as hours of leveling, but Cardboard proves collectible cards passé by gathering almost none of the cards required for spells and blazing through the game at warp speed without regard to levels or his own safety.
This movie is a 10.5 second improvement over the author's previous movie through various small & thorough optimizations.

When played normally, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is a rather long game, in which exploration, leveling up, and killing bosses in order to gain access to different items or portions of the castle is necessary. However, a bit of luck manipulation and a series of glitches involving DSS cards throw all these aspects of gameplay out of the window, allowing the player to warp directly to Dracula and kill him humiliatingly in just over 5 minutes.
This movie is a 227 frame improvement over the previous movie by klmz with some more optimizations.

Normally using the DSS card system of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon grants abilities that one would not otherwise have access to. With a glitch, one can access these abilities anyways, making the DSS cards themselves mere collector's items. When placed under the control of klmz however, Nathan Graves proves himself to be an avid collector, abusing zips and other glitches to quickly go around the castle and obtain all the DSS cards and finish off Dracula in 19 minutes and 30 seconds.
