After watching Nitrogenesis TAS i have been conquered by this game, so i decide to work on it with 2 players (to escape a current project that cost me lot of effort and patience) then i find it really nice to TAS

Stage by stage comments

Stage 1

Get the two lightening sword then beat bosses with hit damage, die but the game don't count it till it happened after bosses defeat

Stage 2

Use death to skip falling spikes(stuff) ascent waiting

Stage 3

Get fire sword,let 2p scroll skipping

Stage 4

Hit damage on boss, false death

Stage 5

Scroll skipping with 2p to reach the lamp faster

Stage 6

Get the bubble sword to keep the lightening one for bosses

Use death tho save time

Get the right position to skip vs fight positioning

Double death cause the princess can go f@"# herself or ask Mario if needed !

Other comments

Input can be ended sooner (at the last dragon damage input) but it will let the player watch them for 37sec so i decide to let them fight

feos: Fixed game name, judging...

feos: Changing the name back, to what we do to Japan-only releases.

As for branching this run, it looks nothing like the existing one, is way more entertaining, but can't be faster due to lack of the main speed trick and presence of an additional fight for 2 players. Accepting as another branch to Moons.

sheela901: I received a dump from feos. Thank you!
