Adventures of Bayou Billy is a beat them up, shoot them up and racing game. In other words, a pure action game.
When watching this timeattack, it doesn't seem so but this game is as hard as Battletoads.
Not only it is an hard game at full speed but it is also hard to timeattack due to a lot of randomness. Probably the reason it is a hard game at regular speed. With Friday the 13th and The Goonies, Adv. of Bayou Billy is another one with complicated randomness. After stage 1, I got 5035 undo count for 2:09 of gameplay.
In stage 2 and 7, I shot all my bullets so I don't want to have bonus points that cost too much real time, that's the reason of this inaccuracy.

Why did you have bullets left in levels 7 and 8? Was there no way to avoid that? Other than that, I'm highly impressed. This game tortured me back in the day, and I like seeing the crap kicked out of it. The driving levels were incredibly boring, but I liked the rest of it. =) -Josh
but then you take my 75 perchance chance of winning, if we was to go one-on-one, and then add 66 and two-thirds ch...percents...i got a 141 and two-thirds chance of winning at sacrifice

In Stage 7, I was forced to finish with 1 bullet otherwise, I'm Game Over. I have tested every frames possible. Strangely, that's not the case in stage 2. In Stage 8, it appears to be the best grabbing 2 guns than just 1 for killing ennemies faster. I don't loose that much frames for excedent bullets.

Wow, this brought back some good memories, I really liked it and agree with the tactics used. Whip really is the killer. Driving was well done, one level with almost 0% kills (very tough) and one with 100%. You even hit a car with a grenade, I was hoping this low-probability manuever would be included. One idea, you did well on the gator fights, but is it possible to manipulate them to attack more often? A yes vote from me anyway.

Yes and No. Yes because you can manipulate luck so the gators is always right in the face. No because if you mean the gators is already right in the face and try to make them appear faster.
