Author's comments and explanations:
Wooo finally done with this. This was quite the pain.
Alot of planning had to be done for this game.

It took me roughly almost a month to do this game.

I apologize for the length of this movie. The sims really are the main reason for that. ( and I'm sorry if they bore you. I tried to make them look as interesting as possible.)

Actraiser is basicly two games in one. Theres the action side scrolling stages and then theres the sims. In the sims you must seal all the monsters lairs by directing the people where to build. You also have magic in this game. You find them only in the sims. I get magics Magical Fire and Magical Stardust (which just plain rocks most of the bosses)

You find mp for your spells in the sims. I only take 5 out of the 7 because the others waste too much time getting.

Some Notes:

Tricks:

Special thanks to Zurreco for his greatly appreciated feedback during the course of this movie being made.


Bisqwit: I like this movie. Maybe because it has so good music and I don't understand the half of what's going on.
This game reminds me a bit of Bahamut Lagoon. It's a similar crazy combination of unrelated game types.
But it's so long... over an hour! I'm almost sure there will be nobody who won't use fast-forward to skip over some parts of this movie when watching.
Regardless, I like this movie, and I will process it.
However, if someone else submits an Actraiser movie, I have no idea what to do with it :)
Ps: All that idle flying around in circles is going to affect the size of the AVI file created... Well, don't worry about it. :)
Ps2: The screen shaking (leftrightleftrightleftrightleftrightleftrightleftright etc) is headache-inducing. Please don't do it the next time.

Bisqwit: As to be expected, this made a huge AVI file...
