Game objectives

  • Emulator used: Bizhawk 2.9.1 with TAStudio
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Takes damage to save time
Cutthroat Island is a movie based side-scrolling action game released in 1995 by Acclaim Entertainment. The game features two playable characters (Morgan Adams and William Shaw) and two different fighting modes (Swordplay and Brawling). There are versions for Game Boy, Game Gear, Genesis, and SNES.
In this run i use William Shaw in Swordplay mode. But unlike my previous movie, here i collect all 5 treasure chests. So this one is "100%" run.
Input ends on last sword hit.

Level 1 - His Majesty's Prison

  • Beat up pirates and boss - Warden

Level 2 - Quarry

  • Autoscrolling level. Just dodge obstacles and if possible enemies too

Level 3 - Spittalfield (1st Treasure Chest)

  • There are two bosses here - Snelgrave and Mordechai Adams. Also i shot the final boss (Dawg Brown) but he kept talking. At least his appearance not spoiled.

Level 4 - Carriage Chase

  • Autoscrolling level. Just beat the last enemy fast.

Level 5 - Harbour

  • Only one midboss here - Harbormaster

Level 6 - Mutiny

  • Beat'em up level on ship

Level 7 - Jungle (2nd Treasure Chest)

  • Mazelike level with monkeys and leopard. No animals were harmed in THIS level.

Level 8 - Cliff

  • Platformer level. Using optimal route which skips major part of level.

Level 9 - Treasure Chamber (3rd Treasure Chest)

  • Platformer level separated to sublevels. Using optimal route which skips major part of level.

Level 10 - Cliff (4th Treasure Chest)

  • Second time on another cliff. Skips major part of level using near-death jumps. The last jump would kill player if this was not the end of level.

Level 11 - Cove

  • Fight with Boss - Governor Patrick Ainslee and his leopard pet

Level 12 - Sea Battle (5th Treasure Chest)

  • Beat up pirates and boss - Dawg Brown

nymx: Claiming for judging.

nymx: I did some comparison on this, against the WR run and your previous publication, [5295] SNES Cutthroat Island by XTREMAL93 in 09:30.16. I was counting 4 treasures, until I finally found the 5th one. You grabbed it so fast that I didn't recognize it. LOL
Another good run that beats the human effort by roughly 4 minutes and 34 seconds. Sorry that I compared your any% run against the WR before. Still...both are excellent and show significant effort over human capabilities.
Accepting to "Standard" for publication.
Publisher...please note that XTREMAL93 has provided an alternate input file to help guide through the ending sequence, for the completion of the movie. It can be found in the discussion thread.
