Submission Text Full Submission Page
My first submission.
  • FCE Ultra 0.98.15
  • Aims for the fastest time possible
  • Length of movie: 19706 frames (05m28s)
  • Takes damage to save time
"Meikyuu Kumikyoku" is "Milon's Secret Castle" in English.
When I battle some bosses, I take damege to change their movement. The timing of press start key in the title screen decides the place of the last boss, so I press start key a little late. I hope you enjoy this movie!
So sorry my poor english...

adelikat: Accepting. Good improvement over an existing run.

Bisqwit: Processing...

Hello hisatoki, always nice to see a new face. Do you know if there are any differences between the USA and Japanese versions? Can your time (5:28) be compared directly to Cheez's time (7:21)?

Great play, but a few things concerned me. It seems like you could of been closer to the exit when picking up the item the bosses dropped. Two of them really popped out to me were the second bird fight, and the second fake princess demon fight. It also seemed like at some points you stopped firing bubbles at the bosses, even though you could of continuied. I am probably wrong, but please let me know. If you need help understanding, please ask and I will reword.

To Mr.Kyrsimys: I think they are nearly same. There are a few different point between USA and Japanese version, but they are small difference...the moving course of enemy, for example.(but the place of appearance is the same) So I can not convert this movie file to USA version, but I can record same or near time by similar play in English version. To Mr.Hoe: In this game, weak point of bosses is only head. If fired bubbles to body, they passed through and I could not fire next bubble until they disappeared, so I stopped firing.

Wow...thankfully, the game is short! I've never heard about this game before, but it's not boring and your run is very well played. That's a YES. And the "goodname" of the ROM is Meikyuu Kumikyoku (J) [o1].nes (for me, at least)

It rests on the conviction that you — by your choices, effort and actions — have made yourself into the kind of person able to deal with reality. It is the conviction — based on the evidence of your own volitional functioning — that you are fundamentally able to succeed in life and, therefore, are deserving of that success." - Onkar Ghate

The other bosses in the game looked WAY cooler than the last boss did. On the bright side, i was more confused watching this than i was watching Morimoto's atlantis no nazo for the first time. It beats this game fast, cant complain there. I could not see any sloppy moves or anything wasting time(from my knowledge of seeing this game played for the first time). So, Im voting yes.

just a quick note on the translation of the title, 組曲 in Chinese can also mean 'a musical suite' or literally 'a group of songs'.

Indeed, "musical suite" or "musical selection" is what edict gives for that. I pondered how to express those two concepts (labyrinth and that) together and I thought "composition" would be a good word, considering that it also hints musical context.
