This run still contains blood and nudity and is not to be seen by anyone.

Well, its faster than before. 3710 frames faster in fact (that's 1:01.83). Yay.

  • Is still made with fba.
  • Still 1 player all the time.
  • Makes me realize my first run sucked and I should be ashamed for submitting it.
  • Still takes damage.
  • Still forgoes death.
  • Still makes the NES version look like shit

Improvement

Level 1

I realized that i missed a speed boot at the start of the level. Picking it up is slower at first, but the speed i have eventually makes up for it.

Level 2

I used a corner boost on the falling spikes. By doing this I dodged the arrow I had to wait out in the last run. Not much to say in this straightforward level.

Level 3

Faster Medusa kill and more damage abuse.

Level 4

I killed the two bug bosses much faster, also lots of damage abuse during the level because I totally missed a health refill in my last run.

Level 5

Picked up a lightning weapon, this wastes time here, but will save time in the next level.

Level 6

At the start, I grab a strong weapon, so to not waste my lightning bolt. I use it to kill both bug bosses and kill the bottom dragon, then the lightning comes out to play.

Level 7

I managed to kill him so fast, he doesn't even make it to the middle of the screen. Yay.

Thanks to The Green Herring for linking me to a longplay which showed where some items were that I overlooked. And thanks to Eino for the longplay.
