This TAS is 1341 frames faster than the previous published NES Nightshade by Maximus in 08:27.67 using the same (Maximus') route with
- optimized controlling of the game
- manipulating X and Y pos to end a scene as fast as possible
- manipulating enemies
- abusing attack cancelling to attack as fast as possible (and chaining hits)
- better fights
- a little trick at the 2nd deathtrap (using the "wrong" lever saves a lot of frames because it's actully "speeds" up timers)
I don't think there's another route that would be faster than abusing death after rat boss.
Thanks goes to Nach for mentioning this game and Maximus for planning his route. See you until my next TAS =)
feos: Accepting this improvement.
