Link's Awakening DX "warp glitch" TAS by hogehoge61 and pirohiko
Right, this is a glitched run of DX, not monochrome one.
- Emulator used: VBAR 1.72 v19.3
- Abuses programming errors
- Uses game restart sequence
- Aims for fastest time
- Takes damage to save time
- Steals a shovel and a bow (money money money, must be funny, in the rich man's world!)
- Uses death to save time (you won't see a picture of Marin in the ending, sadly)
- Uses warps (for details, see "doghouse warp glitch" section)
- Manipulates luck
Tricks and glitches
Touching a corner diagonally can push Link forward a little,
and saves 1 or 2 frames per boost.
Up/Down + Item
Each item use causes glitches by pressing up and down at the same time.
Since it allows Link to touch sprites in the remote position,
he can retrieve his sword without moving below.
Want to see the annoying owl? I guess you don't ;)
In the last battle, he becomes invisible by side effect.
Doghouse warp glitch
As you can imagine, the warp is the heart of the run.
When approaching the entrance of the doghouse downwards along its right side,
you can touch the entrance by pushing left, and it takes Link to a random room.
The destination depends on the number of enemies you killed.
Also, it becomes zero when restarting the game.
In the run, Link goes out from the village and kills two enemies after he steals a bow.
This might look redundant, but is necessary to access the proper room.
Tactics about the boss battle
Normally, the boss cannot be hurt without magic powder,
however, you can defeat him by slashing simultaneously with his landing.
Actually, Deluxe Shovel has an ability to reflect beam.
Shovel use in this scene was done just for an entertainment.
Normally, Link needs to slash again after a hit to focus the power into his sword.
But you can cancel the motion of swinging a sword with Deluxe Shovel,
then save 16 frames per once.
This is the exact use of Deluxe Shovel™, eh? ;)
Don't be too close to the boss, if you want five hits or more.
You can in fact get six hits by shooting arrows while you approach to the boss from far.
