Ibara rapid bombing and the joy of random discovery
« on: May 07, 2019, 09:41:25 PM »
It only took me 13 years, but today I randomly discovered if you hold the B button (without a full bomb in stock) you'll keep bombing every time you pick up a bomb fragment, creating a 'rapid bomb' effect. It can be useful in parts of Stage 1, for example.

It's nice to keep discovering new things in these games, after so many years playing them.

Today, I discovered in SDOJ that you can release one bomb right after a hyper ends (to reduce rank), even if you have another hyper in stock (the stocked hyper will not activate if you press the bomb button fast enough).  :o

Here's a video I found (and uploaded to my channel) showing this done in an actual run: https://youtu.be/mltPFkn5f6w
