Hudson Hawk is a short platforming game loosely based around the movie of the same name. There are 3 levels which you hop your way through to find a treasure at the end, dodging obstacles and defeating enemies as you go.
- Emulator used: BizHawk 1.18.2
- Beats the game as fast as possible
I decided to play this game since I saw it both in the SDA runs without a TAS page as well as the TASMania spreadsheet. It looked short and fast so I gave it a try. Overall it's a pretty simple game but does require a bit of luck manipulation and strategy.
Some tricks to look out for are the punch-jump, where you can get a lot of extra hgeight by timing jump inputs just right on top of a punch animation, jumping through croughing areas, and hopping wherever practical which saves a little time with each jump.
There isn't much to say about each level overall. Level 1 was the most involved in trying to optimize the lasers and the gas jets, the other two levels were just a lot of running and jumping.
Special thanks to J^P for helpful WIPs where I learned some tricks of this game, and to WhiteHat94 for the RTA run.
: Short and sweet run. It keeps moving along at a decent pace. Accepting to Moons.
