About the run
Long story short, I proposed to garland to help with improving the previous submission
. Major improvements are in stages 2 and 4 by ThunderAxe31, and stage 7 by garland. The rest is all minor optimization in most stages, done by both of us.
About the strategy
I didn't struggled much for understanding the game mechanics. All I did was trying to manipulate the enemy behaviour better. I tried to hit both enemies with the first attack, as it's the most obvious time save, but I couldn't do in all stages, due to the different enemy behaviour.
I had to wait some frames before enterting stage 4 in order to manipulate RNG.
Damage of Tyris Flare's moves
- 16 huge dropping stab
- 12 reverse swing
- 6 jump swing
- 4 flying kick
- 4 frontal stab (only against beasts)
- 4 standing kick (only against beasts or during combos)
- 4 throw
- 2 most combo attacks

: Optimization seems good.
Now while the poll results were fairly positive, it seemed fairly repetitive to me, especially compared to the published movie. I asked for an explanation as to why people felt the way they did but did not receive anything. Given that this is a unique mode unlocked from the start with a clear ending however, it is still Vault eligible so that is where it is going.
Accepting to Vault.
