Author's comments and explanations:
Whew! Finally done with this one.

This is a 9.5 minute improvement over the first Lost Vikings movie and took more than two months to complete. This version is packed with various techniques and some glitches.

I'll use Truncated's description of this game - In this action/puzzle game you control three vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels.

The technique that saved the most amount of time was the "third player" element, which switches between characters so frequently, it looks almost as if there are three people playing. This is used constantly to keep motion between all three vikings.

Another technique was the shield-riding trick. I used it only a few times in the first movie, and using this technique can save a multitude of time if you find the right places.

Glitches used:

I want to thank Truncated, Nifboy, and BoltR for their input during the making of this movie. Without them, this movie wouldn't be nearly as good.

For reference, the levels appear in this order: - STRT - GR8T - TLPT - GRND - LLM0 - H0PP - TRSS - PRHS - CVRN - BBLS - TR33 - VLCN - QCKS - PHR0 - CIR0 - SPKS - JMNN - SNDS - TMPL - TTRS - JLLY - PLNG - BTRY - JNKR - RVTS - CBLT - H0PP - SMRT - V8TR - NFL8 - WKYY - CMB0 - 8BLL - TRDR - FNTM - WRLR - PDDY - TRPD - TFFF - FRGT - 4RN4 - MSTR

Enjoy!
