About the run

I used snes9x-1.43 because snes9x-1.51 causes the game's graphics to blink. In the area 1, I gained two Looeys who have an ability to kick bombs and send them flying. I sacrificed some frames to gain items in the first two boss battles. To gain a Remote Control as quick as possible, I forwent the shortest route in the area 3. The movie ends before the final boss being beaten. Staying a certain place makes him suicide.

Thanks to...

  • Yoshimitsu, for his route planning and strategies.

Nach: Very nice, I was rather shocked to see how quickly some of the bosses were beaten. Accepting as first run for this game.

Nahoc: Will publish soon.
