About this movie.

This is my firt TAS submission. I do not know much what to say, I used a lot of Dodge nd I played all the time in 25% slow. Taking damage (zombies) take more time than to use dodge system, also, dodge take more time than to avoid zombies. Sry Inglish.

Game objectives.

  • Genre: Survival Horror
  • Emulator used: BizHawk 2.2.1
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Knife Only - No Damage
  • Hard Mode / Rank S
  • Clear Time: 1:12:57

Mothrayas: The quite low rerecord count relative to the movie's length and the comment that the movie was played in 25% slowdown indicate that TAS tools were not used effectively enough (most notably with frame advance not being used). As a result, the movie has visible rooms for improvement in many places.

On top of that, voter response appears to be mixed, and the low entertainment rating of the published movie indicates that the relatively long runs of this game do not seem to hold enough entertainment value for the Moons tier. I did not see much in this movie to warrant a higher tier, either. Therefore, unless a future run of this category does significantly better in entertainment value than both this movie and the previous one, it would not be publishable anyway for failing to meet Vault goal choice requirements.

Rejecting due to lack of optimization, and due to being a non-Vaultable category with mediocre audience response.
