Here it is! My very first time attack!

32 min 11 sec
2189 re-records

-Uses no warps
-Takes no damage
-Obtains only necessary and time saving items

A couple of things I did to save some time:

-In level 1 I bought two pairs of sandals. This speeds up walking immensely.

-Goemon can't walk when he is attacking, but if he is already moving forward in a jump you can attack without slowing down.

-I went through the whole game with the level 2 pipe, as I can attack twice in a jump before hitting the ground and still be able to move, whereas with the yo-yo, it takes longer to retract and would prevent me from moving.

-Knowing that I would need to buy the pass in level 6 and the book in level 8, both of which cost $980, I decided to play the dice game in level 5 to quickly earn the necessary cash. This seems to be much faster and easier than any other money making scheme.


Phil: I'm gonna take a look at this movie.

Phil: I would like to record this movie but Snes9x refuses to record after 15 minutes. I thought it was a codec issue but it's not that.
I should report this problem to blip.

Bisqwit: Processing.
