- uses no warps

- aims for quick completion, but uses some frames for entertainment
- abuses programming errors in the game
- manipulates luck

Here is the last missing version of battletoads: 2 players - warpless. This was the hardest movie i ever made as i had to control 2 characters while trying to keep up with phil and genisto's tricks and movements.

I tried to give player 2 a lot of lives and kill him on different, interesting, intriguing ways. There may be some places where it will be hard to understand what is going on ^_^ i think thats good.

At this game, the second controller doesnt work on level 11. So player 2 has to gameover there. He comes back on level 12.

This movie uses a lot of tricks and bugs, phil asked me to help him write a tricks page for this game before i started doing this run, but i think that after making this i have more knowledge to do that. Lets see what we can make :) stay tuned

Unfortunatelly, the game has a lot of lag on 2 players mode, so the time ended up being slower than the 1p warpless run (if it had same lag as 1p, it would have been faster, despite the forced gameover). But its more entertaining, i hope. Enjoy!

Note: i didnt end the movie recording as soon as possible, i recorded some action after defeating dark queen, so the movie would be some seconds faster if i ended earlier
