Comments

This game is basically a boss rush.

Between bosses, you have short stages, where you have chances to recover life and fill up your weapon gauges.

I choose the two weapons with the best damage-time ratio.

The phoenix attack can only be used when you have full life, and you lose 50 life points for performing it.

The game has a clock that runs only when time is counting down, it does not count the power up freeze, so it does not impact the final time.

There is a graphical glitch when you perform the shot absorption move on the ground, and inmediately you teleport, it looks like the phoenix attack, but it is just the regular teleport.

I start attacking each boss in the first frame they are vulnerable.

In stage 8, you can not move for a few seconds at the beginning, i move in the first possible frame.


mmbossman: Rejecting due to the existence of a faster run, see discussion for details.
