So it’s come to my attention that there is a score screen after the end credits of this game. (How I didn’t notice this until now, you can blame me not understanding Japanese and how they do numbers in this game makes no sense in english). So this means I might have to adjust the rules for file ending. There’s two options we have, we can either: 1. End input on the score screen meaning we have a definitive ending point 2. End input on the final boss at any point that kills him (for the actual submission, we would provide an alternative movie file to get to that score screen for the encode) I would like to hear what people would prefer. Personally I’m leaning more for the latter option.

Option 2.

Alright, I think it’s settled then. Input will be ending on the final boss (with an alternative movie file for publication)

You press buttons and that makes things happen and that's pretty cool.

I couldn't beat it playing real-time, but as a TAS, I'm enjoying it a lot. I like a game where for the most part you move at a clear top speed, and all you have to optimize is the times that you can temporarily get a speed higher than that. It makes it easier to say, "yeah, this looks perfect". As opposed to say Sonic, or from what I've seen, Donald Land. (So if anyone has found a way to go zoom zoom donald land fast the entire time, you're beating us haha)

I had some fun playing through it casually. Though I couldn't beat the 2nd half of the game without savestates.

Just wanted to let everyone know I have work during the time the contest ends. All this is going to do is delay the posting of the results by an hour. So the contest will still end at the posted time given, it’s just the results will be late. Just to clear up any confusion.
