General Stage Information

  • The biggest time loss/save comes from the Mummy whose spawns are random. The best outcome is a 1 cycle in which he would spawn from either the far left or far right of the screen.
    • Each full cycle costs 1400 Frames (half a cycle or if you are one hit of are still a 700 frame time lose. So a good boss to invest some time)
