Thanks go to the excellent folks at SDA for their great work.
Might and Magic 4: Clouds of Xeen is the fourth game in the classic series by New World Computing
The game is normally quite long, with playthroughs taking 20+ hours to complete as the party of adventurers continuously grows stronger. However, a little knowledge can be an amazing thing and most of the fights in the game can be completely skipped with a few carefully placed spells.
This speedrun takes advantage of several tricks and glitches:
There are also some cheats that were specifically avoided in this run:
One thing to note is that it's possible to be *too* fast when running this game. Due to glitch #4 above, it's possible to use the portals too quickly, allowing enemies at the destination to take their move before the party gets a chance to react. This can also happen if trying to use trick #3 but turning too quickly, allowing the enemies to move in a different way.
The Speech version of "World of Xeen" was used for this run, however, speech is disabled at the beginning of the run.
