Author's comments and explanations:
So I decided to stay off Crash Bandicoot Huge Adventure for a bit (no spoilers I'm doing 100%), to do a side-project sadly the emulator didn't work so I found the handheld version and completely different to the Playstation version I'm writing about The Emperor's New Groove. I should also mention this tas was done 100% Blind as I never touched the Gameboy version in my life OK to be exact if you're going What the hell why did you do it like this I actually went over the level to see what is happening.

Story Line

Much like the movie Kuzco the young prince has been given a potion by Yzma and been transformed into a llama. Pacha a noble man who lives literately on the other hill decides to help reverse the spells of Kuzco as he was told that he "Kidnapped" Kuzco and turned HIM into a llama. Ok enough of the actual movie story line I don't want to spoil it to the ones who actually never seen the film and are willing to see it :D

What I used

  • Emulator used: vba-v24m-svn-r422

Main Goals and What I needed to do

  • Finish as fast as I can
  • Damage abuse when needed
  • KEEP THAT ONE HEART BEATING IF THAT'S ONLY LEFT
  • Keep on running (When I can)
  • Control the Jumps (When possible)
  • Entertain

Levels - what happens

Level 1

  • Damage abuse twice
  • Avoid the scrolls as they show hints
  • Quickest way to Pacha so stay high up

Level 2

  • Get a shortcut down at the start by running jumping saving about 10 seconds
  • Damage abuse on spider make sure for the flip
  • Climb back up to Pacha

Level 3

  • I didn't know Kuzco was a long jumper (Sarcasim)
  • Avoid first damage abuse
  • Spit pot at higher point avoid running else slide off
  • Go up to go down XD

Level 4

  • Quick Damage abuse to help get down
  • Short cut #2 Sprint jump saves about 5 seconds
  • Go up, go down spit repeat the going up again
  • Get down damage abuse

Level 5

  • Time the jumps when going up (litelry some point the game doesn't want you to do certain things)
  • Damage abuse after spitting

Level 6

  • EARLY DAMAGE ABUSE damn that fish
  • I had to plan this one to have 1 heart left or else I'm screwed so I waited for the snake so I can use the Damage abuse without failure at later times
