Submission Comments
This is a better version of previous run I made before. 51 drawings on the Calculations X 100 mode were replaced by new ones. No change on Brain Age Check mode.

Spoiler warning

This submission text tells you what I draw. I recommend you not to read it before watching the movie!

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: desmume-0.9.6
  • Abuses programming errors
  • Is a demonstration
  • Manipulates luck
  • Uses game restart sequence
Note: The replay is not quite deterministic. If the replay runs desync,
1, Save at frame 117 during playing the movie.
2, Load the savestate slot.
3, Play the movie from beggining again and it will run well.

About the game

Have you ever had an interest in art or wanted to learn how to draw? Well now you can with the Brain Age software for the Nintendo DS system. Brain Age is a fun, interactive, and portable training software that will teach you how to draw, much as you would learn in Calculations X 100.
Hehe, I told a lie. The real description is as follows.
Brain Age is a puzzle game to exercise your brain a little each day. It is inspired by the research of Professor Ryuta Kawashima. You will play a variety of puzzles to train your brain. Although there has been controversy over the scientific effectiveness of the game in keeping your brain active, the game got very popular.

About the run

This run shows you how you can abuse the number recognition program by secretly drawing the number answer in each picture. You can see random characters on Brain Age Check mode, and video game stuff on calculations X 100 mode. The latter mode, the run ignores the game time and fails to launch a rocket. This time, it takes 5 minutes to solve the entire math problem, and it is slower than the previous run. This is because the run aims to be as entertaining as possible.

Examples of how to abuse the recognition program
