This is the revised story of Simon Belmont's horrible weekend without sleep.

The timeunit count for this movie is 3:05:58, which is 25 "minutes" better than the previous version, and over 9 "hours" better than the first released version. The actual movie was now improved by 49 seconds, due to better planning and implementation.
It also abuses the falling-through-floor glitch which is insanely difficult to perform.

There are several items that are required for the completion of the game, and you can't buy them without killing a certain amount of monsters, thus this movie has some running back and forth, collecting hearts. There's also the factor that shops are only open at daytime and monsters are twice as much evil at nighttime...

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.
