Android speedrun WR - Time: 1 hour 4 minutes 35 seconds

Following our community collaborative effort of finding glitches and strats (see https://forum.magicball.net/showthread.php?t=17943) for the Enhanced (Android) version and after much time put in by yours truly in figuring out the route/finding strats, I decided to put some effort in also practicing doing the full route as we now have it.

This has resulted in a run of the Android version in just
1 hour 4 minutes 35 seconds!

Really quite happy about this run and it goes to show that the Android run can be made very interesting using all the unique glitches.

See the full run here:

Splits and details can be seen here at speedrun.com: http://www.speedrun.com/run/7z0j9p8y

The run showcases two new strats which I have not yet shared in the Android glitch repo thread:
  • The first is that of getting FunFrock's Sword as soon as we get to Principal Island at the start of the run, using a save-glitch, just ~08:23 into the run. Jump to 08:07 to see the beginning of this strat.
  • The other strat is that of skipping the prison sequence towards the end of the game, on Fortress Island, using a meca-jump and exploiting the fast that enemies die in one hit to throw the magicball at Zoe above a locked door - this strat can be seen around the 58 minutes mark.

Note: The run begins around 01:22 into the video, I forgot to add this time code to the URL.

Wow good job Homeless! Very interesting indeed.

I never knew how different the enhanced version was. Couple things i noticed were the clover system from lba2 and less recoil from getting hit.

I did , however, expect the android run to be quite shorter than the normal record given this save glitch!

edit: wait wtf why does the door open even if FF isnt dead?

Woaw man that is awesome finally one run made it to speedrun.com!

I still see lots of small things you could do to improve your time. Ie buying meca on Principal instead of taking it at white leaf. But I guess the run isn't mature to check these small things!

Great job man, looking forward to see an improved run!

BTW when did you stream that one?

Nice one. This is a really nice time, specially when it's more difficult to mastered the input like on the keyboard.

This just reminds me an old project that needs to be revived!!! Fix all glitches in the script and grids.
