La-Mulana Remake RTA (SS Speedrun) in 2 09 18

2:09:18 Any% Run

La-Mulana Remake is a very enjoyable game to speed run and includes an accurate game timer (a large improvement over the original!).

A speedrun of this game entails almost nonstop action, with little to no dialogue.


ResourcesEdit

SpeedDemosArchive thread (includes info for the original and remake): https://forum.speeddemosarchive.com/post/lamulana.html

If you are interested in Speedrunning the Steam Version of La-Mulana ( CurrentVersion 1.5.5.2), a guide has now been posted on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=157495618

The main difference between the Steam guide and the guide here in the wiki is that the glitch allowing early access to the Flail Whip Room has been fixed, and the guide has been modified to account for that.  There also seems to be a few tweaks to the route and minor improvements overall.
