Mole Mania, known as Moguranya (モグラ~ニャ) in Japan, is an action puzzle game. The main character is a mole named Muddy Mole, whose wife and children have been kidnapped by the farmer, Jinbe. Muddy has to go to Jinbe Land and save his family. In the game, the player will solve puzzles by moving a black ball to a gate. However, there are many obstacles and enemies in the way. Therefore the player will dig into ground to find ways around them.

About the run

The run aims to beat all levels as fast as possible without using surrender. I used new warp glitch that allows skipping a lot of rooms. While an enemy pushes a black ball that Muddy is carrying, hitting by another enemy takes Muddy to a square where he can’t go to. This trick only works upper side and left side of the screen. Also it only works in level 2, level 3, level 4, and level 6.

Stage by stage comments

Level 1

Almost same as currently published any% run. The difference is that it doesn’t use surrender.

Level 2

This is the first stage where the new trick is abused.

Level 3

In battle against Funton, I wasn’t able to draw anything because I had to manipulate luck. Sorry about that.

Level 4

This level has one of the toughest puzzles to solve. Maybe some players used surrender here. However, the run beats the puzzle pretty easily.

Level 5

The warp glitch doesn’t work.

Level 6

The warp glitch takes Muddy to a broken map and he enables to move to almost everywhere. It makes Muddy into a zombie, breaks the game, and unable to unlock level 8 without reset glitch. After beating all levels except for level 8, the run abuses the reset glitch in level 1 to unlock level 8.

Level 7

The warp glitch doesn’t work. The level was quite long and hard to manage Muddy’s life.

Level 8

I drew a question mark block from Super Mario Bros. in battle against Funton.
