About The Game

Castlevania - Order of Ecclesia is the Castlevania series of the third work of Nintendo DS. In the front, unlike two works, the map is stage form. If each stage is not cleared, the next stage will appear. Although the character which can be chosen first is only "Shanoa", "Albus" can be chosen once it clears.

About This Run

This TAS aims at the fastest clearance by Albus which can be chosen once it clears by Shanoa. The features of Albus are that it can leap to the place which pushed the touch pen, and the invincibility in Backdash. This "a touch pen warp" and "Backdash" are used for movement. If a touch pen warp is used, it will consume MP 30 times. MP takes the time of 60 frames to resume recovery, once it consumes in a form of some kind, although it recovers one time to one frame. It is necessary to use this touch pen warp and backdash properly well.


This TAS is using Savedata. I was allowed to use dsv which dsm of Shanoa TAS testrun which gocha created creates as this Savedata. I am thankful to gocha who permitted dsm use.

Author's Encode



klmz: Claimed for judging. Is there an explanation on the different sram included in this submission file from that produced with the quoted movie by gocha?

mtbRc: This save data copies the player data 1 of the save data which Shanoa TAS Test Run which gocha created creates to 2, and deletes the data of 1.

klmz: Okay. Although the sram that I created following your instructions had a few different bytes, it was verified to play this movie in sync (by replacing the original sram included in the movie). So I think that we can assume that the different bytes do not matter much according to the my test.

klmz: Good quality and feedfacks. Accepted as a concept demo with justified sram usage.
