Lufia 2 is an adventure RPG prequel to Lufia 1. In this installment, Maxim and his cohorts set out to take down the evil Sinistrals.

The game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. Using RNG manipulation, this movie illustrates how to avoid many unimportant skirmishes so as to cut down on wasted time. This manipulation is also used to get more favorable item drops throughout the whole run.

Note that the (U) version of this ROM contains some graphical glitches. You can read more about these in the submission text.

Normally, the game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. In this movie, however, Genisto uses 2 newly found glitches, explained in the submission text, which let anyone finish the game without even leaving the first room, improving the previous movie by almost 2 minutes.

Lufia 2 is an adventure RPG prequel to Lufia 1. In this installment, Maxim and his cohorts set out to take down the evil Sinistrals.

Normally, the game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. In this movie, however, ventuz abuses the "Lv.0 glitch" (read the submission comments for more details), which lets one access limited event triggers in memory. This allows him to reach the ending in 4 minutes and 11.77 seconds.

Normally, the game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. In this movie, however, JeedUnit abuses the Lv.0 glitch (read the submission comments for more details), which lets one access limited event triggers in memory, to skip most of these puzzles in the name of speed.

JeedUnit also improves the previous run by almost a minute and a half through a new route and improved RNG manipulation.
