This is a tool-assisted speedrun (TAS) on Double Dragon for SEGA Genesis (Submission #2). It is 1 min, 18 sec faster than my previous run. Now it beats all existing records and all knowledge is used!

Movie objectives:

  • Emulator used: GENS-rerecording v11a
  • Aims for the fastest time
  • Take damage to save time
  • Vivacity and energy (You won't be bored watching this!)

My comments:

I expected that someone from judges will watch Aqfaq's test movie and I don't understand why Spikestuff began to calm me (I still had a chance)! I had a great time ReTASing this game, but I wasn't happy when I passed it (3rd time).

Tricks/Glitches

If the player is in the air (jumped) when an enemy went out from building/wall or just keeps standing, it disappears!

Movie comments

Fastest time, improves and etc. Whip is the most powerful weapon in the game (excepting dynamite) and almost all enemies die after the second hit. I've been wrong about beating up enemies with foots and baseball bats! Sorry! Manipulating AI is hard and I was afraid I won't beat some moments in my previous run! The most difficult mission is the 3rd because of the largest number of fights and I was a little upset that I couldn't throw enemies while holding the whip. The most difficult moment in the 4th mission was to take the extreme left position to "kill" the final boss and finish the game faster. Special thanks to Aqfaq for a test movie and RAM adresses though I didn't use them!


Truncated: Judging!

Truncated: Replaced movie with new version which is 1 frame faster.

This TAS is all I hoped it would be. Nice improvements with the new glitches overall and better enemy manipulation. I will accept this movie for the moon category. Congratulations Dimon!
