Author's comments and explanations:
Akumajou Special - Boku Dracula-kun is the sequel to the Famicom game of the same title. While there is a story, it's really lame, involving Kid Dracula and aliens (WTF?!). With their appearance, you must traverse through 8 levels to eventually beat up Garamoth for thinking UFOs are cool. Or something like that.

The Japanese version was used as you can start the game faster. While the in-game language is different, it has no affect on time.

Unlike the Famicom game, you start out with fireball and bat abilities, then receive new powers every level. Some of the bosses return, but may have new tactics.

Stage 1

(Author Note: The Konami code has no effect on this game. I entered it for fun.)

In the lair of the man of the night, I wander around like a lost vampire hunter. Studdering little (and only to save time), I come face to face with Frankenstein. But fly as I might, he says he wants to dance with me. "No, later", I say. Then I run into some Nazi Ghosts. CREEPY! Seems that they are wimps. Too bad.

Stage 2

Ah. I take a deep breath of the lovely fresh air once I reach the forest. I tried to ask Mr. Owl how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop, but he would have none of that. For shame. I also found some cool sunshaded flowers. They looked sick, so I helped them enjoy the sunshine. They didn't seem happy about that. :( After that, I decided to go over the river to grandmother's house. I cooked up some fish along the way for her to eat, but much to my surprise, the BIG BAD WOLF was there! He tried to eat me for breakfast. SCARRRRRY WOLF!

Stage 3

I ran into an amusement park! The place was trippin'. I felt so high, it was unreal! But then a bird doodoo'd on my face. I was not happy about that and fried the sucker. Tastes like chicken.

Stage 4

I found out later that the amusement park was run by dead pirates! They captured me and took me to their ship and threatened to make me walk the plank! Too bad I was stuck to the board and walked underneath it. Confused those pirates like you wouldn't believe! But then a robot appeared. Wait, what?!

Stage 5

I got sucked into a tube and wound up in a Space Invaders game. How bizarre.

Stage 6

Well, then somehow I wound up at a volcano. It was sooo hot, I nearly scorched my batwings! Apparently, since I didn't sacrifice myself, Fiji got upset and started spewing rocks at me. Luckily, I have Travelers Insurance.

Stage 7

A large crater opened up and I wound up in a dark cave! It was spoooooky. And nobody does upkeep on it anymore. Stuff falling everywhere! What a pity. Oh wait, there IS somebody upkeeping it? Well, he's fired! I may not be the owner, but I AM the man!

Stage 8

I wound up in a strange palace. It was bigger then mine. I envy the owner. Bored, I decided to fly and bounce around. Found out later that the place was still under construction. Noisy drills everywhere! I don't like loud noises. I also don't like crab, except in my tummy. Yummy tummy filled with crab legs. :) Then I met some of Ridley Scott's friends. They tried to spit all over me. Luckily, I'm still insured!

Then, a BIG booming voice came out of nowhere! I thought it was God...or my angry dad. I wasn't sure which. But then it turned out to be Garamoth! He always plays rough - I don't like that. So I make him fall down and go boom.

This was my journey. Turned out it was all a dream. No more anchovy and pineapple pizza for me before bedtime anymore.


Runners notes: This run is a 4435 frame improvement over the canceled submission.
