Rygar time!!

This game is AWESOME! It still is my childhood favourite game. And after time attacking it I like it even more. There are so many great glitches and stuff you can do in this game ;) I use most of them to make it look cool and fast.

Ok, this run is about 2 minutes faster then Biswits previous version (atleast Famtasia claims it´s ~2 minutes). This is because I invented a new glitch!!! Well, maybe it´s not new but in any case I discovered this for myself (by accident ;P) so im kinda proud over it. The glitch itself allows Rygar to "fly" and this saved me.. well 2 minutes apparently.

I still collect tone points (experience sort of) from robots but instead of fighting the same robot a couple of times I now can advance while fighting robots and thus makes it more entertaining to watch. I managed to get 3 robots on the screen at the same time. Fighting those were really a pain in the ass ;P

Hmm. I also use the warp-glitch but this time I only dies ONCE (!) instead of 4 times. You'll see why ;)

Ligar is teh_hardest boss ever (in my opinion ;P) but I think I fought him pretty good. After reviewing my run a couple of times I can´t see any obvious flaws in that fight. If I don´t hit him I simply couldn´t do it. Either I was out of reach or I would have been hit by his really annoying projectiles. I take my "free hit" pretty early in the fight. This is because:
1. It was good at that moment. I could hit him a few times without avoiding projectiles.
2. It´s really hard to judge when to use that free hit because the fight is so long. If I would have used it later I would still have had to avoid some shots..

Also, I manipulated some enemies to appear where I wanted them too. For example some turtles over some gaps.

So, here it is. 2 minutes faster then my and Bisqwits previous attempt ;)

Takes damage to save time
Manipulates luck
ABUSES programming errors in the game
Uses a warp glitch
Uses death ONCE as a shortcut.
Aims for fastest time

And that´s it I think. Enjoy it ;)
