Intro

Hello, this is my first TAS of an entire game. I chose this game because it was an easy and simple game to Tas. The hardest part of the game might possibly be the Monster Movie Set level. It has 2 sections where there are 4-5 doors to chose from. Entering the wrong door will result in you having to do that section again. I purposely slowed down before going to the area with the doors so that I can mainuplate the first door to allow me to proceed. I took damage once on every stage to save time. I also tried to make the boss battles entertaining.

You can watch the run over here(part 1) and here(part 2).

Hints/Tips:

  • Take Damge to Lower your health Bonus -- Saves 50 Frames

  • Infinite Time glitch is detrimental as it makes you lose 100 frames per level.

  • Take Damage during boss fights to save more frames!!

  • Sometimes, the longer route is faster, as it avoids the carrots, which gives you 10 points each.

  • 1 point = 1 frame during the Countdown at the end of each stage.

  • Use Cheats to find out when the boss is vulnerable!

The Minigames:

Nothing special, expect the fact that winning the tug-o-war minigame is slightly faster than losing because of an unskippable cutscene if you lose.

The Bosses:

  • Cowboy Max:
    • I'm sorry. I'm really am. Why? Because I had to take damge in order to lower my health bonus by 50. I know it looks sloppy and bad, but this won't happen again.

  • Kabuki Max:
    • This time, I took damage to attack him as early as possible. Unfortunately, you HAVE to delay a bit before attacking him again, or else he mysteriosly vanish for 300 or so more frames.

  • Cyber Max:
    • Longest Battle Ever. I seriously hate this guy. He's not hard or anything, but it's just that in order to beat him quickly, you have to wait inside the top left pillar near where he spawns. I tried to do several tricks during the battle, but to me, it's still boring to wait thru the whole thing.

  • Franken Max:
    • Quickest Battle Ever. He's too predictable and can also be lured to the edge of the screen, allowing you to knock him out fast. I took damage so that I can attack him earlier without getting hurt again.

  • Montana Max.
    • I took damage in the middle of the final brawl with Max to execute a time-saving glitch that allows me to attack during his laser move.


mmbossman: Nice movie, especially from a newcomer! Congratulations on completing this, and on your first accepted movie.
