On the mobile speedrunning discord we have a channel where anyone can drop a post with their preferences to ask for suggestions, in particular (a) Platform(s) (b) Run duration (c) Genre(s) (d) Pay stance (e) Other criteria. A sticky on these forums (fora?) for suggestion requests spelling out what leads people need to give would work pretty well imo.

I can but don't think I'll get the chance for another week. Hopefully wuzi or Saturn spot this beforehand.

Is it worth running on emu instead?


^ Good point


Hi mad king. For some unknown reason the iOS version doesn't include time trial. You can time manually although it's not easy!

Time seems to start the first frame the jets light up.

I believe time ends when both craft feet are on the pad simultaneously BUT the time can carry on when the craft bounces back up but not always. I think the key to spotting when the in game clock would have stopped (if iOS had one) is when the camera starts to zoom in on the pad.

Please time as best you can and submit so we can check. Unfortunately it is not an exact science because of the end time vagueness, also the fact that you can only be accurate to the nearest frame whereas I think the IGT on android may be more accurate than that.


Interesting idea. You could even embed users' src times pages if the site admins were ok with that, although that would only appeal to speedrunners. Some intergration between your site and this one would be cool as the only thing this site lacks is player profiling (other than the basics and times page).

Nice meme.

I use Samsung Game Tools and have always had a decent result. If you are getting low bitrate vids then try changing the bitrate from auto to the highest possible (14 Mbps I think) in settings. There is a 4gb file size limit but that is not unusual. If you need any other tips on gameplay and speedrun recording and timing on mobile then the mobile speedrunning discord is at


Ah, okay


Do you mean you are already in the discord? What is your discord name?


Nice guide!

@FlipRun Given your obvious interest in PK, you may be interested in joining the mobile speedrunning discord competition - see for more details

@Ianwubby Is there a material difference in the performance of the different karts / characters? If so, and given that croako (?) cannot be unlocked without paying, is it possible to create a sub-category for free / paid? The reason I ask is that there is interest in running this game (probably 1-1 5 lap) in the Mobile Speedrunning Discord competition, but we only do free games.

Edit: You are welcome to the discord

Hi! I've added to Guides a link to the notes I made a long long time ago but note the comments - I obviously rushed over the ending of the guide and it is really just a walkthrough - my run was not fast and I imagine the other runs contain route / strat improvements.


I've resigned my modship oxy, I might do some runs of this one eventually though - it's on my long long list!

@OldManGamer (from another old man gamer). The TKO mechanic is subject to a ton of RNG so the existing runs were all the product of grinding for a long time with the same start combo until getting the luck needed for an immediate TKO. I don't think it's a platform issue or your being off on your timing.

Godchueco mentioned the MSD (Mobile Speedrunning Discord). In that discord every two weeks or so we vote for a game/category to compete at for about a week, and chose PF (easy exhibition) the time before last. It was a good one as the dev joined the discord and ran through a lot of the coding with us and did some number-crunching etc. Would be great if you could join us at

Timer starts when control of character gained, though that can be difficult to pinpoint

I had a close call in my Swordigo any% ( @57m52s ) where I had been grinding for months to get sub-60 and was finally on track. The first phase of the final boss is the toughest part of the run and I got some bad luck. I got beaten down to half a heart twice before killing him by the skin of my teeth. The final phase of the boss involves glitching him to clip into the ground and die and can randomly take anywhere up to 4-5 minutes to get, but I got lucky and he did it first try, securing the sub-60.

Problem is that it was just a recorded (not-streamed) no commentary run so a bit boring from that perspective. Also, the game is relatively inactive so if you were looking for something popular then this wouldn't suit.


Over at the Mobile Speedrunning Discord we periodically choose a game / category to compete in for at least a week, and this time round we've chosen League of Evil Blue-Spy% (mobile version). This is just a heads up that there will be some runs incoming in that category and you guys are welcome to join in of course -
