Hotshot Deathless Speedruns

Post by Marvin » Tue Apr 05, 2016 5:03 pm

Hi there,
I decided to try improve old records by stx-Vile.
So far here are levels 1-10: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... Ac9yV5CZcD

level - improvement:
1 - 1 sec
2 - 2 secs
3 - 1 sec
4 - 3 secs
5 - 5 secs
6 - 6 secs
7 - 14 secs
8 - 9 secs
9 - 4 secs
10 - 12 secs
S1 - 5 secs
11 - 7 secs
12 - 6 secs

Hopefully I will continue soon if I have enough free time

Did some new runs and added to playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... Ac9yV5CZcD

Level 18: 18 secs improvement. This one was really easy since stx-Vile used bad route.
Level 22: 1 sec improvement. This was really hard and I'm very happy with the result. I didn't think I can do it faster since I was forced to use different route and also had to spent more time to destroy reactor (I use fixed version of rebirth, where fusion doesn't hit reactor multiple times). I think this run is my best so far.
Level 26: 3 sec improvement. Another level, where I had to spent more time to destroy reactor, but compared to level 22 it was way easier.

level 15: Had to do the end little bit differently due to no bug reactor shot, but still an improvemen of 2 secs.
level 16: Needed to go for extra homings for reactor room to not loose a charge of fusion, but also 2 secs down.
level 19: 2 secs faster again, but this one was really annoying, it is quite a lot about good RNG, many enemies can block you.
level 25: improvement of 8 secs with same route.
level 13: really hard level to survive, some serious practice is needed. Minus 10 secs with same route.
level S2: well, it is not possible to cut a single sec here (best possible time is very high 9 secs), so I just equaled previous rec.

It's mostly optimization, memorization and good old-fashioned practice I think. It does look pretty cool when you do it well though.

Practice is key for everything. Except waiting for a good RNG..

Last remaining level done! Finally have them all:). Some runs are not as good as others, but I don't care, I'm done with it:).

It's just bizarre to me how fast some can be finished. Still looks like magic.
