Shadowgate

Route video by ZenicReverie.

Metroid

Tutorial session with Controllerhead, Dragondarch, and Prisi. Shows a fast route (getting morph, missiles, optional e-tank, and ice beam) that uses 3 screenwraps, including one that takes you from the ice beam area directly to the Norfair elevator.

Also shows a safe route that gets bombs and doesn't use screenwraps (morph, missiles, e-tank, bombs, ice beam, norfair missiles, and another e-tank in ridley's lair). Bombs let you go left in Ridley's lair for a MUCH safer route.

Note that you can also add bombs to the fast route, which removes 2 of the screenwraps. So the route would be: morph, missiles, e-tank, bombs, ice beam, then screenwrap to the norfair elevator, norfair missiles, ridley left-path e-tank.

The truly minimalist route would only get morph and one missile pack. This is dangerous because the right-hand path through Ridley's lair and the Ridley fight itself (if you get a bad fireball pattern) are very hard without ice beam or any e-tanks.

24:06 run by CAK. This is an all-bosses run, the beginning of which is identical to the safe route described above (no screenwraps).
