Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.2
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Barely entertains, mostly reduces monotonity of bunnyhopping
  • Commits suicide before the final boss for entertainment purposes. Doesn't changes the TAS itself.


There isn't many things to say about this game.
The improvements mostly comes from
  • manipulating the spawning side of the enemies by using delays / manipulating enemy spawn timer value
  • optimizing our and enemies subpixel position (subpixel overcarry)
  • using enemies to further optimize or positions (at elevator levels)
  • 1 different route (when picking up the 2nd speed)
  • enemy action manipulation by delying hits or using specific RNG manpulation.
See you until my next TAS =)

feos: Acceblishing to Vault.
