Overlord

Overlord is a strategy game that I am not terribly familiar with. For better details and goal information I would suggest reading FatRatKnight's previous submission.

This is a 3 frame improvement over the previous submission, these frames were saved by using a slightly different approach in the last battle. This submission is slower overall because 7 frames were lost to emulator differences (several early game screen transitions took longer, but FatRatKnight's previous submission did sync).

Improvements

  • I didn't check the early game for improvements, but I'm guessing FatRatKnight's submission was pretty optimized.
  • Similarly to the previous submission I wouldn't be surprised if frames could be shaved in the last fight still. I did improve it, but my testing was by no means exhaustive.

Thanks to:

  • FatRatKnight for the original submission.
  • The TASMania team
