  • Aims for fastest time
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Emulator used VBA v19.3
The movie is 34 seconds faster than my previous one. Improvements come from detail optimization, boss fight and a few new strategies.
Timesavers: I chose cloud castle as first stage and got axe, the subweapon save me a little time in next stage. Whip when the hero jump up make he jump slightly higher, I use it to save some times. Optimized boss fight in rock castle and plant castle. Used new strategies in some stages. And other movements optimization.

mmbossman: Accepting as an improvement to the published movie.
ShinyDoofy: Will process...

I felt improvements were possible, but I wasn't sure what. Never expected 34 seconds worth though! I'll have to watch this later. :)

I noticed you took damage differently on those stupid spiky platforms. Very nice.

I'm sure this is the wrong place to post this kind of thing, but I don't know where else to do it so please forgive me. The description of this movie contains incorrect information. It says that in this game you play Simon's grandfather Soleiyu. In fact you play Simon's GREAT-grandfather Christopher, on a quest to rescue Christopher's son Soleiyu.

Hey, sorry for the bump, but I saw this publication got updated recently. There's an error in the submission details... see beavinator's post above. Thanks!
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. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.) Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html) 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.
