Now that Adobe Flash has been shut down entirely you can no longer play the game by using the original link. Luckily there is now a way to play it offline, for free and without ads: https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/

Thread: What is the diffrence between cd and no cd?

Started by: Carboy45Carboy45

(edited: )

OwlDragon is right: "CD" stands for "Coin Doubler".
Most categories on the leaderboards (e.g. Any%, All Bosses or 100%) are divided into the two subcategories "With CD" and "Without CD" because getting twice as many coins is a clear advantage in these categories. Other categories such as "Up to First Shard" or "Boss Rush" can´t be sped up by using a Coin Doubler so those categories don´t need to be divided.
96% is similar to 100% but you neither have to visit all locations nor finish all questlines.

Triple jumping is already allowed in all categories because the community has voted for that on Discord.
We just didn´t make that clear on the forums.

I think we should update our current theme. So I took some time and came up with ideas.

What do you think which background we should use?
1. The old one

What do you think about using these icons as new trophies?

Thread: Potential glitches and skips

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

I went through the game again and got some news.

Let´s start with the bad ones:
1. Apparently it´s impossible to buy the Magic Armour before the Plate Armour. 😕
2. Only the first phase of the final boss can be harmed by the Needle (reflecting is impossible)
3. The Master of Chaos is also immune to bombs.
4. It took me almost 1:40 to complete the game so I didn´t even pb.

Now the good news:
1. Since I messed up very often I think we can definitely get times below 1:15 with the new strats, hopefully even below 1:10
2. I agree to drgrumble that it´s losing time to take the spare key from the Chambers of The Flame because the Corruptor is actually easy to kill with Magic Bolts.
3. We can kill the first phase easier if we manage to level up during the fight because that refills our Mana.
4. I found a way to kill the Master of Chaos in one hit! The problem is that I only did it once and I have no clue how precise it is. Basically I camped in the corner at the very right side of the arena and used my Shadow Sword to get Mana, a health potion to refill lifes and Fire on the Dragon´s Gasp to deal damage. Suddenly I grabbed him while I was hugging the wall and he was jumping very close to me. That one time (at around 30%) he got drawn all the way into the corner and got stuck in the wall. Then he zipped down quickly and the screen started scrolling down as well. http://i.imgur.com/EFzo0Zb.png
After all the credits started playing. 😃

Alright, I just played through the game and skipped Ferryman, The Frost Trinket, the Fire Demon, the Ice Dwarf, all the Swords better than The Thorn, most of the treasures containing Soul Shards and some of the treasures containing xp. I only skilled "Magic" until I maxed it out and then started leveling up "Health" (At the final boss I had 6 full hearts).
Although I didn´t expect it the playthrough made me believe even The Thorn is totally unneccessary for two reasons.
1. Since I didn´t skill "Attack" a single time The Thorn only dealed 12 - 18 damage. The Needle isn´t a much worse option considering The Thorn takes almost 1:30 to collect.
2. The Main use of a sword in general was restoring mana. The amount of mana restored is not affected by the damage a sword deals.

Getting through the game was definitely way easier than expected. I also figured out you can hit The Overseer when he´s on a high platform like here: http://i.imgur.com/zQaVW5E.png
The only problem was the WEK as expected. That´s why I hardly agree it´s not worth getting The Plate Armour anywhere in the run but instead The Magic Armour at the very end. I actually bought The Plate Armour early on and regret it now because immediately after entering WEK I had the 400 Soul Shards that would have allowed me to buy the better Armour (that´s what happened in my pb as well).
Fortunately I had 3 spare keys: Ferryman´s one, the one from the statue in the Chambers of The Flame and the one from the Lesser Corruptor. They allowed me to not only skip the part with the Golden Boulder and Bishop but also the hard fight against the Corruptor on the upper left side after entering WEK. That made WEK doable until I got to the Lair of Death.
Here I got stuck at the first phase because I didn´t own The Magic Armour. 😕 During hopeless attempts I figured out a convenient way to kill the first phase.
1. Sword - No Trinket, Armour - Shadow Trinket, Magic - Fire Trinket
2. Use Dimension Rift and fire Magic Bolts to the "earthbound form" until you run out of Mana. Then go back to the light dimension
3. Sword - Fire Trinket, Armour - No Trinket, Magic - Shadow Trinket
4. Restore the entire Mana bar and dodge all the attacks. Rarely attack with the sword THAT DEALS DAMAGE after he came down for a while.
5. Repeat from 1 on
The second phase remains a mystery to me...

Oh, I already skipped the Frost Trinket. Furthermore I'm going to go through the game trying to find new timesaves really soon.
Let's make that sub 1 hour possible!

Thread: Potential glitches and skips

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Something tells me that we will optimize the game´s route a LOT in the next few weeks.
I just rewatched my pb and found out we should replace the key handed to you by the richest man in the world by the one handed to you by Ferryman. With around 3:30 that key takes the longest to collect. That alone saves a massive amount of time 🙂

But now that the best route skips two bosses we can actually collect two more additional keys that would be required to continue the intended routes.
The more convenient one takes around 1:00 to collect. It is right after the death abuse after obtaining the Dimension Rift spell. If we go up to the Lesser Corruptor and take its key we can store that one for later on.
Obviously we can skip Bishop, the Destroyer who takes around 2:00 so we´re talking about a 1 minute timesave here.

The other "extra" key takes around 1:30 to collect. It is right after the death abuse after obtaining the Dragon´s Gasp spell. If we continue taking the intended upper part after respawning at the portal and collect the key at the statue in the Chambers of The Flame we got another one we can store for later on. However, I didn´t find a key this key can replace AND save time. Probably one key in the World´s End Keep might take longer than 1:30 now that we don´t have the Mageblade anymore.

Also, what do you guys think about skipping the Magic Armor? Apparently I was the only one who bothered skipping it so far.

Okay, now that we know it´s possible to complete the game without the Mageblade we should be able to skip the Fire Boss (idk its name) and the Ice Dwarf.
Obviously the problem with that is the World's End Keep because any Swords but magic ones are useless. The Mageblade is one of them and I was wondering if the Magic Sword obtained by the Skeleton Lord in the purplemoore graveyard can deal damage to the Corruptors too.
If it can the WEK should be a lot faster because we wouldn´t have to wait for Mana to refill (e.g. Final Boss) to deal damage.

It seems as if the link wouldn´t work anymore because the website shut down all their games. Unfortunately Little Guy hasn´t been uploaded anywhere else so I believe there won´t be any way to play it unless someone finds a way to contact the original programmer. 😕

Thread: Adding subcategories to the leaderboards

Started by: ZarcatusZarcatus

As of now there are 4 categories: Any% with Coin Doubler, Any%, 100% with Coin Doubler and 100%. I like these categories but I dislike the way they are displayed on the leaderboards.
What about adding subcategories like "No Coin Doubler" and "Coin Doubler" so that people first decide if they want to look at Any% or 100% and then if they prefer Coin Doubler or not. Super Mario 64 did it like that "http://www.speedrun.com/sm64".
The option is "Extra variables/subcategories" in "Edit Game".

I understand that the rules say for 100% say he has to get all the achievements and treasures. Are swords actually considered as one of those?

Thread: iOS faster than Android?

Started by: ZarcatusZarcatus

Recently a new update for the iOS version got released. It adds an arrow to the cinematic intro sequence which allows you to skip it and with that around 50 seconds.
I was assuming the Android version would have been updated too but apparently Zach Miller didn´t skip the cinematic although his run is new.
My question: Does anyone who owns the Android version know if that exists? If it wouldn´t iOS should be faster now.
