Author's comments and explanations:
FractalFusion: Please note that the emulator uses VBA v24m svn422, which may have different timing than other VBA versions even among GBA games.

This run is known to desync on v22 and v23, and possibly earlier versions.

This is an improvement of 2001 frames of my first TAS of this game.

Game objectives / info

  • Emulator used: vba-v24m-svn422
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Pacifist mode ( Only kill the two foremen in Level 2 and 7 to continue )

About the game

  • Running is faster than walking
  • Falling is slower than jumping
  • Asterix max speed is 687
  • Obelix max speed is 611
  • Obelix need 31 frames to reach his max speed
  • Asterix need 35 frames to reach his max speed

Tricks Used

  • When you press the "sprint button" (L or R) and jump in any direction you reach immediatly the max speed of your character.
  • To finish the rugby level it requires to score 4 touchdown so the transformation is not necessary.
  • In the Bank level you can fall down the ladders when pressing Down + Jump (A).

Memory Adresses

04000018 : Camera X postion 03000376 : Speed


Other comments

I hope i have improve the entertainement in this movie. I didn't find how to climb the stairs more faster in the second level of Hispania.
DarkKobold: Judging
DarkKobold: Removing pacifist branch (as it is fastest), and accepting.

Thanks for the help, FF!
