About the game

This is a fangame that crosses over elements of Castlevania with old-school 8-bit SMB1. It is made in 2001 in either Click 'n Create or Multimedia Fusion by a Japanese developer called CnC Darkside. Read more about it here and download it from here.

Tricks I used

Moving platform glitch

I used this glitch in stage 4 just for entertainment.


I found this glitch accidentally when I took damage from a plasma ball and shot a fireball at the same time in stage 5.

turska: Judging.
turska: The movie uses an incorrect FPS setting, which causes highly distracting visual anomalities with this particular game. 50 seems to be the correct setting; this movie uses 60.

This game simply doesn't make for an entertaining TAS. The grievous audio and glacial speed make watching the run a grueling experience.

As such, I'm rejecting this movie for bad game choice, technical issues regarding Hourglass settings and overwhelming negative audience response.

turska: NOT unrejected under the neo-TASVideos publication system, since the technical issues regarding the Hourglass settings are still sufficient for rejection.
