About the run

I was going to draw a detailed picture in every math problems. However, my previous Brain Age TAS got a lot of criticisms that it is slow-paced. After all, I gave up the idea of drawing a lot of detailed pictures and decided to make a quick-paced run that aims for youngest age on Brain Age Check and maximum score on Piano Player.
I decided to redo Piano Player as some people didn’t enjoy the part in the previous run. Also I removed other minigames after the brain age check because the feedback on them was quite poor except for the last picture. Therefore the goal of the run is to launch a rocket on Piano Player.

Brain Age Check

It aims to be the youngest brain age. To achieve the objective, the run must be complete within 1050 frames. There are only 11 math problems and the average time for answering is about 95 frames. This is enough to draw some pictures without failing to achieve the objective.

Piano Player

I added some recognizable music. This part is the main feature of the movie.

Special thanks

  • ISM and 890, for their Piano Player run.
  • Jungon, for your kind comments when I received a lot of complaints. That motivated me to redo the run.
