Lag reduction

Entering an exit causes 3-frame lag per 1 player, so 2 players didn’t enter the exit at once. Some of boss battles limit special performance due to lag. In 4-8, there wasn’t much I could do.

About movie end

Putting bombs horizontally allows stopping key input much faster than the last boss being beaten if I throw a bomb to the bomb’s line from the edge of it.

Special thanks

  • Nitsuja and Amilala, for their works. I got some ideas, from their runs, on how to make boss battles and 5-1 entertaining.
