General Comment about the run

This is a new category for this game "All Bosses" which I must clear the game but without any boss skip. For beating the bosses,I need same dinosaurs such as blue dinosaur,the preferabl for beating the boss,it lunch bullets can kill the boss quickly and the green dinosaur,I am just use it for the first boss because I don't have the previous dinosaur yet,and the last is purple animal,I use it only on crocodile boss

Author's encode

Nach: Some of this run look a bit sloppy, and the author has vanished. Canceling for the time being. If the author returns and wants to defend his decisions, he can uncancel.

This was a pretty good run! It's definitely a lot faster than Sami's last run for this category. However, I have three questions before I vote. 1) Why are there so many missed attacks? 2) I notice that you take damage fighting the bone boss, but then you lose a lot of time dodging the crab boss's chain in the next stage. Would it be faster to instead take damage with the crab boss? 3) There's one stage where you find a secret power-up area very close to the stage's exit. It looks like the time waiting for the secret area is longer than the time needed to finish the stage. Why do you go there?
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically. Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. ( Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! ( Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature! Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:
Shoutouts and thanks to mklip2001 for arguably being the nicest and most supportive person on the forums.

I'd really like to have the above questions answered McBobX, thanks. Also, can more people comment what they think about this branch?
