Game Introduction:

Wario Land 3 was released for the Gameboy Color in 2001. It is a platformer, though it plays more like a puzzle platformer due to its mechanics. Wario is unable to die, but he is able to be affected by enemies in various ways, from simply recoiling in pain, to turning fat or into a zombie. Wario must use these transformations, as well as many powerups found along the way, to collect all 100 treasures. Wario must also find five music boxes to break the spell on "A Hidden Figure," who is later revealed to be the main villain, Rudy the Clown.

This was the TAS I used as a "guideline" of sorts.

Final Comments: This took me a stupid amount of time to complete, due to... stupidity. There are a few small errors in the run: After getting E1's Red chest, I didn't advance to the score screen for about a quarter-second. Oddly, I ended up getting the golf course I wanted on the first frame a few times after the mistake in E1 Red, so it basically ended up making itself up... sort of. There was also an extremely small timesave (only a few frames) that I was not able to get to work(I spent a good three hours trying to,) due to it being a really strange wallclip, and the only video of it I could find was a 360p TAS by a japanese runner, which did not show how to get it to work because of its poor quality. Big thanks to the (small) WL3 speedrun community for having guides. A few routing differences (I picked up coins when I didn't really need to, due to not knowing how much money I would actually have at the end of the game, when the three golf courses would cost 50 coins.) would easily shave off about a minute. For example, depending upon when I do N3 Red, I would have the Steel Overalls upgrade, which would allow me to break the blocks very quickly, but as stated previously, I did not know if I would have enough money to be able to do it later on. I plan on improving on this run at some point in the future, but for now, I really need a rest... For a screenshot, please use frame 305723.

slamo: Replaced movie file with a Spiked version that cuts off 746 frames...and judging!
