Ultraman Ball is a platform game featuring the famous Japanese television character Ultraman. However, the game has little to nothing do with Ultraman, as oddly enough, his power in this game is to transform into a ball and bounce around a lot. Some say this game is based on the abandoned NES project, Armadillo 2, and in fact the game is very similar to Armadillo.

To make it through this strange game, the author of this run, TaoTao, uses several tricks, including ones that optimize movement, like the vine boost, and ones that allow him to skip over several sections, such as levitation. Please see the author's notes for more details.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
