Hi,
I was wondering if anyone here has ever tried to speedrun the "another world" category of puzzle bobble 2, discovering quick strats, the fastest route, etc. I actually found its existence through this site, and to me it's a new and fun way to play the game, albeit stupidly hard.
I'm currently practising it a little and plan on uploading a run sometime soon, but I'd love to see how more experienced players may tackle this challenge.

I've done some routing on my own (read as: Played all 27 worlds on Another World setting to figure out which ones weren't a pain for me to do lol) but still haven't done a proper run of it yet.

I'm getting back into Puzzle Bobble slowly due to an upcoming event. Might sit down and record a proper run afterward.

Thanks for the reply, take your time of course! 🙂
Do you by any chance remember if you settled on a specific route? At the moment I'm trying with the same route as the standard game and it feels tough but doable, except that I swapped in C for D because I was tired of dying unfairly multiple times to D3, but maybe I'm just bad lol. And I'm still not sure which one sucks less.
My best time until now is about 21 minutes, but I average 3 deaths per run so yeah, a lot of room for improvement.

My route is currently BEHLQ?, but I chose those stages for my preference. There might be a faster route that we just don't know yet.

Thanks, I will try that and compare.

@TokuHer0TokuHer0

After watching your run and poshi's, I'm convinced that ACG is potentially faster. The only real problem is C5 (a true nightmare stage), in which you just have to get good rng otherwise your run is kaputt, but the other stages are all reasonably fast. I tried BEH a few times: I feel that it's overall safer, but the wide screen "precision" stages are really obnoxious and slow, at least for me.

But this is just my opinion and I might be wrong, I'd love to read your thoughts (and @poshiposhi 's) on the choice of routing.

Yeah my choice of routing when I was doing this on my own was on consistency and ease of the stage. The Wide stages definitely are probably the only really slow stages of the route.

I forget why at this point, but I vaguely recall the clear obstruction bubbles playing into why I didn't do some stages. I need to do some more runs personally and compare on my end.
