Author's comments and explanations:
Well, here it is. The first GBA CV submission.:) This game is definately my favorite GBA CV installment, and is just behind SotN as my favorite Castleroid. The game is plays like a non linear oldschool CV game. The music is also really nice. It's mostly remixes.

The game itself is pretty difficult, but you wouldn't know if you haven't played it by watching this. I play through the game normally while abusing the DSS glitch.(more on that later.) Theres only really one sequence break you can do and thats going straight to camilla after you break the statue rather then going and purifying the water.

This lets me skip 2 Bosses which is always nice. There's two DSS's I use through out this run. The first is Pluto + Griffon which lets me move double my speed. This lets me get around very fast with the Dash boots. The other I use which I use for totally destroying bosses is Pluto + Black Dog. This lets me transform into a skeleton that does massive damage. (More on that later too.)

Okay so I abuse this a lot in this run. I'll explain the glitch briefly. Basicially, if you have 1 legit card combo you can use every single card in that game as if you had it! (I don't know how Konami missed this, but whatever it's neat regardless.) You simply activate your DSS and before it's completely activated you go back to the DSS menu and select a card combo you don't have. There you have It, It's that simple.

Okay so your wondering how I lay waste to the bosses so fast with that big bone? In Skeleton form you normally launch really puny damage small bones, BUT you have a small chance to launch a big bone that just destroys. I obviously manipulate that small chance every time.:)


Bisqwit: It looks very speedy! Queuing for publication :)
