So I'm at my girlfriend's house, she has a stomach virus, and so she decided to take a nap. So I'm bored. I know, let's whip out my laptop and make a tool-assisted speedrun!

I started this when I read that Kyman thought his run couldn't be improved. So I improved it by 30 frames, mostly because of lag reduction and a better strategy in the boss battle. Instead of jumping, I fire a knife. This causes him to jump, which allows me to get under him before he wastes time throwing a knife and kill him earlier.

Thanks to Kyman for his previous run. Enjoy!

Improvements!

Level Frames Saved

This run is likely close to perfect. I have redone every level once, and improvements were either succesful or negated by random lag.


Nahoc: Claimed for judging.

Nahoc: Incoming frame war? Better publish this quick! Accepting as an improvement over the published run.
