Cheats Glitches Used

Action Replay Pause Glitch

By pausing the game 2 frames before you enter a doorway, the game fucks over and allows you to do crap. Fix this by exiting the area or floor. Also the main point of this run. By the way, to find out where you are while off-screen, simply pause/unpause the game - You'll appear in the screen along with the room you're in for a very brief period of time during the fadeout.

Cancel the annoying dialogue before the boss

By pausing 3 times in succession, you can move away from the trigger point of the emotional speech.



Other comments

The addresses for X/Y Position changes every freaking floor. Unfortunately, they are extremely important as I'm walking blind most of the run.

Health management was tricky, but I managed to beat the game without healing since picking up candies for the first time pops-up a dialogue box. Sadly, while skipping the box is possible (by triggering another cutscene while on top of a candy), the route used doesn't allow such situation to appear.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: While the movie doesn't have a lot of action overall, it does contain some nice going-off-screen glitches. It's also quite short, which eases the "boringness" of the movie. All in all, I consider it good enough to accept for publication.
