Demon Sword completed as fast as possible. This film is faster than the original Curtmack record by about 66 seconds. In the first two levels, I found a way to avoid losing momentum when hitting trees and to jump over high walls without hitting them. With the first few bosses, I used the sword for all 20 hits to kill the boss as fast as possible. The third boss (2-1) is different because he can hide. I let him jump a couple times in order to manipulate him out of hiding for some time, which is slower in the long run. On boss 6, it looks like I'm wasting darts, but the game reads the darts as hitting even though they go through the boss graphically. The final boss teleports away every time it is attacked. It's impossible to find a truly optimal route because manipulating it to teleport closer one time may result in it teleporting much further away another time. Therefore, I have to use a suitable sub-optimal route.

PS : Sorry, My poor English skills, please forgive a lot ...
