I got one of the Time WRs back. Better watch your back Heinz...

Episode 2...27 mins. It was a run for the ages. Here's the kicker....it was my FIRST try :D I almost got the ball glitched inside the Skull Head. Was not gonna let that happen again.

I'll try Episode 3 next. I did a fun run and got my 2nd best time. I know what time to aim for....now just a matter of nailing the hard stages.

Managed to grab Ep 3 and Ep 4 Time Attack WR's. Just gotta get Ep 1, which is arguably the hardest WR to grab. Damn Heinz for having a super solid run.

I have learned some things though.

If you move slightly left at Level 1 and hit the left orange block on the right group of blocks, when it goes left and hits near the top of the middle group, you are guaranteed a Laser. I figure this was Heinz's strategy for this level.

The level where you have the huge ball (I forget what round it is), if you move left and hit specific blocks 4 times in a row, you are guaranteed a Laser from a specific block. Very interesting. Seems the items are not RNG'd as I had initially thought. You can actually "create" items and luck.

I'll get Ep 1 WR I hope soon. Getting drained from replaying it over and over. Might try one of the other records, maybe Co-op by myself...or Score Attack.

Up to 15/16 Time Attack WRs.

I have all 4 Solo Barrier TA WRs.
I have all 4 Co-Op Lives TA WRs.
I have all 4 Co-Op Barrier TA WRs.
I have 3 of the 4 Solo Lives TA WRs (missing Ep 1, losing to Heinz by about 8 seconds)

I plan to go for the SA WRs as well. I currently only have Co-Op Ep 3 SA WR (I got it b/c I never used a Continue).

After many pain-staking runs, I finally got Episode 1 Solo Time Attack World Record :D :D :D :D :D Beat Heinz by a little over a minute :)

Now for Score Attacks...

Some videos of me playing:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dixcsXIUxkM --- Episode 1, Solo Lives, Time Attack, 28'39"59 (World Record)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FumHJdqhEy8 --- Episode 2, Solo Barrier, Time Attack, 31'00"42 (World Record)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S0WPvtIiZI --- Episode 4, Solo Lives, Time Attack, 35'58"91 (World Record)

These were set recently by me. The Episode 1 run was stellar until Round 28 (hate that level). The Episode 2 Barrier time is pretty darn good too. Episode 4 Lives run was really good too.

I'll have an Episode 3 up at some point, but keep blowing runs on it b/c a lot of the levels are very difficult.

:Edit:
Episode 4 is much faster with enemies on as they tend to hit you into the hard to reach areas. Ironic that the enemies make it faster to complete, which is total opposite of what Heinz and I did to get the WR initially.

Episode 3, Solo Lives, 34'37"05 (World Record)

Very nice run. Pretty happy :) Stupid mistakes here and there...oh well.

I've started to try Score Attack. I'm very bad at it. I don't think I will bother, and will instead continue to try and improve Time Attack records, and grab some easier Score Attack records.

Improved Episode 1 Solo Lives :) I may go back and do Barrier again since I know my strategies now since then.

26'58"39 is the new WR. I am so happy to get under 27 :D

The video does contain real time commentary.

I've made a lot of strong improvements on almost all Episodes in terms of Time Attack. Score Attack is going badly though :/ Keep dying late game when I would be getting WRs. Annoying.
