Used tricks

-> Through Wall glitch -> A little X-position boosting

Frame rule

There is a framerule for destroying normal enemies. Detection of bombfire is working by 1 of 4 frames for enemies.

New trick

In this movie, I used a new trick to make "wall throughing" and "little X-position boost" much more easier.
While bomberman exists out of camera for some reason, putted bombs become impassable immediately even bomberman exists on the position of the bomb. So, Through Wall and X boost become easyer because they are caused by a situation that bomberman exists in impassable tiles. However, while using this glitch in horizontally long stage, Bomberman can never reach to the goal. Therefore, bomberman must fix its Y tile position in somewhere of the stage.

How to extrude from camera.

Jump without walking at the ceiling of a stage, Y position of bomberman will move immediately without moving camera. Especially in horizontally long stages, Correcting Y tile position of bomberman is same way.

Other comments

Used lua is here.
This shows Bomberman's speed, Runcount, Jumpmeter, overview of the level, etc.
