This is the first run for this game in over 4 years! But it's worth it, almost 4 minutes faster than the previous 100% record. I think the deathwarping strategy is new here.

GBA and mobile share the same topic but the game are quite different, aren't they?

Well, nice job on the speedrun. You got second out of third. Yes, the games are different hoodlumsworld. It's kind of cool for the sake that it exists that they made this and also put the GBA on N-Gage and Digiblast to an extent. It's cool that people would speedrun this game. I have never played the mobile version before.

Rayman's phone is here. It has Rayman 3 installed. If you could help me return it to him, that would be appreciated. :?:
