I plan to start running this soon but noticed the categories are for finishing only the original first four days. I was planning on routing the entire True Ending run. Would it be possible to add it as a category?

Just started playing and I noticed its quite a bit faster to 'Punch Dash' and then jump at the end of the dash. It resets the punch and the momentum can be carried in mid-air. Makes that first "purify all the crystals" level FLY BY, so long as you keep control of your jumps and don't do a slam on accident.

Punch Dash > Jump > Touch Ground and Punch dash > Jump > repeat

Is there any Any% category for this?

Texas, USAOracleofSorrow5 years ago

You guys are INSANE. Insanely amazing. I love seeing your runs and those times go lower and lower. Just wanted it to be known.

Feel free to post your tips and tricks for new runners. I'll be explaining Nightmare Warping later on to anyone interested in fighting Adam(NG+ runs only) with Full Stats and No Debuffs in their runs.

Okay, doing some research Hex's can be used at level 12 in NORMAL mode but not in Casual.

-Tutorial ~ After grabbing the gun you are only required to fire the spreadshot at the dummies (it must make contact with at least 1 dummy) to open the door.

-Casual mode lowers the loot pool, meaning your chances for higher loot are slim to none. The best you'd probably get is Uncommon and maybe the once in a lifetime rare. Still dunno which would be faster - having better loot or easier enemies.

-Normal Character or Hardcore character only affects the Private Stash. Hardcore Characters share a stash and Normal Characters share a stash, but if a Hardcore character dies then they can never access the Hardcore stash again. Normal Characters cannot touch the Hardcore stash and vice versa.

-Exp gain seems to be the same no matter which mode you play(Only tested on Casual and Normal), though Champion spawning is random in some spots it seems while specific champions are always in the same place. Careful EXP routing places the player around level 4 - level 5 right around the first boss.

Gonna be testing a lot of things and adding to this post in edits.

1: I own the game on Xbox one - would you consider adding a Console category? 2: Is the Any% run on Casual or Normal? (couldn't get the VOD to play) 3:Are hexes allowed? 4:any tips for a newbie beyond "grab shotgun, go fast"?

I noticed a run submitted for PC that had timed with loads and was in 3rd place. After Comparing to the other two runs I realized it was 2nd place. So, just for the record, PC Load times adds up to 7 minutes and 55 seconds. For future PC runs please be sure to subtract this time from your over all time with loads.

Recently finished my blind playthrough and am interested in running this. What sort of glitches have been found so far? I've bugged into walls a few times but never got anything out of it.

Hey guys, planning on coming back soon. Life has been a bit complicated and busy. Also, why no runs?

Texas, USAOracleofSorrow6 years ago

Some category ideas I had. Time starts on entering first level, ends on final hit on jinx

NG+ Any% (Low%) On a completed save file Complete the Any% run without side levels, collecting only end clover for each Any% Level. Each boss is required.

NG+ Any%(All Clovers) On a completed save file Complete the Any% run with side levels, collecting all clovers within worlds 1-3 and the first level for world 4 - each boss is required (L-U-C-K-Y gives 50 coins, hidden clover gives 25 coins, making for a faster coin route)

NG+ 100% On a completed save file Complete the 100% Run with side levels, collecting all clovers within all levels and all worlds. Each boss is required

NG+ Boss Rush(meme run?) On a completed Save file, defeat each boss as quickly as possible

Was curious if this game is still alive and was wondering if we could have separate categories for Console and PC as Load Times vary. I'd love to get more people involved with this game and if current mod needs help I'd be happy to volunteer!

Starting the timer at the click of New Game makes sense, but there is an un-skippable cut-scene right at the beginning. Just wondering other peoples thoughts on when Time should start. I feel ending on the last hit on Jinx should stay as it is as its the final input you make on the game.

I'm excited to be joining the community and downloading the game now so I can start running

Been busy with work and life and personal things. But finally had time to sit down and redo the run with the Simulacrum fight

(which took me 20 minutes in itself. That boss has a stupid amount of HP and Speed)

As I have been busy with life in general this run is me coming back fresh to Ittle Dew 2 and so I forgot the solutions to several puzzles and had to solve them again on the spot.

So there is MUCH MUCH MUCH More room for improvement on the run which has been submitted and awaiting a Moderator to view it.

At the end of the video I go into the menu and the costume tent to show I do in fact have EVERYTHING and then stop by at the painting for That Guy. For those who are unaware,

That Guy can only be reached when you have ALL the crayons and wait for seven minutes in front of his painting. You also MUST have the Shotgun from the Simulacrum dungeon or you cannot reach the boss once you enter his area.

Which is why he is not a part of the speedrun. It takes a literal SEVEN MINUTES that you cannot speed up to even think of reaching him.

Anyway, run submitted, hoping to do better soon. But again - busy life.

Its been about two weeks since I submitted a game request for Dragon bro's. When I made a request for necropolis the response was swift (2 days I believe). Just wondering if i could get some kind of reply! :D

New runner - saw the AGDQ run and other runs where people use Risky shuffle to get past the first map and then at the second map with the mermaids and crabs they use the cannon to jump up to the second mermaid, damage boost and drop into a hidden spot. No matter how many times I try it I cannot drop down. What am I doing wrong? It doesn't seem like there is a block to break or anything.

EDIT - In order to used unlocked abilities you have to hover over No-Save and press Y(xbox) or triangle(PS4) - change sonic's ability type from Mania to CD and then start a No-Save run as Sonic. This of course means you lose the ability to start spin dash in mid-air(which after experimenting I have found you simply jump and then hold jump to continue doing it over and over)

Doing my best in this to avoid spoilers for those wanting to experience levels for themselves while at the same time giving what I feel is key information to creating speedrun routes.

Tails is most definitely the Easy mode for this game. Hitting something just right and then flying sends you rocketing over a good chunk of the level...at the expense of missing checkpoints. Tails can fly for a decent amount of time and even doggie paddle in the water. Enemies above Tails while he is flying will be hit by his tail as if he were in ball form.

Sonic has the ability to start his spin dash in mid-air, I have yet to master the timing on it but I believe its possible to jump-spin-hit the ground - go flying - start spin in mid air- hit the ground - continue spinning. Working out the timing.

There are the giant rings from Sonic 1 hidden around each Act. There is at least one giant ring in each act and these lead to the chaos emeralds. Instead of the half pipe mini game there is a new mini-game in which your amount of rings is your clock, and the blue orbs increase your speed. All the while you are chasing a UFO(This is what the game calls it) which is holding the emerald.

You chase it around a track. You can jump to avoid pitfalls, but Sonic moves forward automatically and you have to drift him around corners to maintain speed. Running out of rings or falling off the course is grounds for failure.

You start at Mach 1, filling the meter with blue orbs increases your mach. Hitting Mach 4 ensures you will get the emerald but makes Sonic harder to control.

Having 25+rings and hitting a checkpoint activates the 'Blue Ball' Minigame which rewards medals upon completion and I believe these medals unlock things in the extra's menu.(It also seems you can unlock abilities as I obtained Sonic's "Peel out" move from Sonic CD)

Each zone has 2 acts, each act has a boss fight. There are also mini-bosses in the middle of some acts(possibly all acts)

Shields you grab have effects around the environment. Fire Shields burn wood. Also reflects projectiles

Bubble Shields reflect projectiles and allow you to breathe underwater (nothing new that I have been able to determine)

Lightning shields grab rings but also magnetize the player to certain metal platforms. Unsure if it reflects projectiles.

There are tons of new level mechanics that really have to be experienced to understand. On top of that there are TONS of branching paths that cross over one another. Well timed jumps(or flying) can skip sections or if done wrong send you backwards.

I have yet to experiment with Knuckles. I'm over halfway through the game, but needed a break to maintain my sanity XD

Been busy with a lot of complicated life stuff, but sometime this week I hope to submit my 100% run!
