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 https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg

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

I had a close call in my Swordigo any% ( https://www.speedrun.com/Swordigo/run/z5o266jy @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 - https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg

Lords of the Fallen is perhaps shorter than you were looking for but really fun, and probably available on PS4 for ne much.

 
 

I would like to complain to the power of 4.

 
 

Good to hear you are coming back to the game! DEMO is the top guy to advise right now (he is in a league of his own) but for the moment the main things to remember are:

1. Damaging enemies temporarily allows you to pass through them unharmed, so don't bother killing most things, just hit them once and walk through them;
2. Strategise where you are going to accept taking damage, the optimal route for each level will usually mean finishing with only one heart;
3. Practise sword swiping and shooting the magic bolt in quick combination, for quick kills on enemies.

If you draw a blank in your search, I (or someone else in the mobile speedrunning community) would be happy to recommend some mobile speedgames to you if you let us know your preferences. I know you said that they don't entertain you, but it can be easy to overlook some really credible titles because the mobile games market is so flooded. They are there though.

Also, I think DOS emulation is possible on Android, but I haven't tried it myself. I have tried running a fringe Amstrad title ('Tubaruba' - if any of the other 4 people that played it read this, hmu) on my phone using an emu app and it worked really well.

 
 

All exhibition runs currently require base stats, and the career mode run allows use of a fully levelled profile.

If anyone wanted to run exhibition using a levelled profile and/ or wanted to do a career run starting from base stats only, let me know and I can add the relevant sub-categories.

[Fs] If you let me have the link of your run I will watch it and when I get time I will try it out myself [fe]

@JudgeAlexander This game is also available on mobile and I have thought about running it before but it looked too big (long) so I never finished a playthrough. If you start routing and think there is a decent prospect of the run getting below the 1.5 hour mark please let me know and I will hopefully be able to join in and we could tackle routing together.

Edit: I have just YT'd it and there is a cheats-on speedrun over 3 hours so unless you find something huge, I'm out unfortunately. Sorry.

@Renoncius Thanks for the reply, good to know. This is definitely on my list of potential speedgames to run.

Thanks tetronic. Someone whispered me on twitch recently asking if any of us were active in this game so may be that there is a new run coming, who knows.

 
 

I much prefer option 4. I've always thought having highscores tracked on 'speedrun.com' was kinda silly as highscoring and speedrunning are completely different beasts and in many instances are the antithesis of each other. A sister site appropriately named with same interface and accounts etc would be cool though.

Some of you know of it already, but there is a mobile speedrunning discord at https://discord.gg/ujkXu29

It's a good place to find other mobile games which meet your criteria for speedrunning, to introduce other runners to mobile speedgames you are interested in or to discuss mobile speedrunning in general. We also hold competitions periodically where we have a week to compete in a game / category voted on by the members.

 
 

I wasn't aware that there was a common adversity to clicking on people's profiles. Personally, I am a bit of a snoop and find myself looking through people's times pages waaaay more than is healthy lol
