Demon's Crest is the third installment of the Gargoyle's Quest series. The player controls Firebrand, who is scouring the Demon Realm for elemental Crests, which preside over different elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Time, and Heaven). When collected, these crests allow Firebrand to transform his shape at will and gain powerful new abilities and defenses.

Demon's Crest is notorious for some very difficult bosses. In this run, the author abuses boss weaknesses to the extreme by carefully switching Gargoyle forms as necessary. In addition, heavy luck manipulation was used during several encounters to make the otherwise troublesome boss fights look easier than a play through of Barney's Hide and Seek.

This is an improvement of 17.48 over Brookman's previous movie.

This run completes the game as fast as possible with minimal item collection. For those who want to see all items and levels completed, we also have a 100% run of the game.

Brookman improves the previous run by over a minute thanks to greater optimization, different usage of powers, and some route changes. Unlike the previous run, Brookman stops in a shop at one point to get some time-saving powerups. For more details, read the detailed submission comments.

This is a "completed" ~1,000 frame improvement of the 100% movie that was published a few months ago. The improvement comes from getting the urn in stage 2 on the first visit, which allows me to use MORE mercury potions to avoid extra trips to the world map and other shenanigans.

Skull Bash minigame was improved by 20 frames and there were other movement optimizations I was able to make through out as well as avoiding lag in some areas.

Ironically, due to the new potion strategy 2 boss fights become longer (one MUCH longer) but still the trade-off is significant. I'm not sure what else there is to say right now but after a few weeks of testing a pushing I JUST completed the TAS and immediately came to upload.

I'll be looking for spots that can be improved over the next few days and if anyone is interested in viewing or providing feed back that would be much appreciated.

thanks again hope you enjoy this improvement.
