About the Run

  • This is an improved version of My TAS

improvement points

  1. Route change after acquiring Axe. But this makes it impossible to acquire sliding with Tonic for Axe 18 And sliding disappears, it becomes impossible to move in the wall, and it is forced to change the route at TheThoneRoom.
  2. Optimization of Battle of Death. Loops are reduced from 7 to 6.
  3. Change of Battle of True Dracula by 1. This is referring to the video of romscout -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iA6Sz680roc. In other words, even if the HP becomes less than half, it will not be attacked by nails if it goes behind.Also, I replaced the reduced MP with Dive Kick's attack.

Special thanks

  • romscout: I referred to Battle of True Dracula.
