||Challenge: Wheel of Graze by Pruns (modified version.)
Rules: last number in graze counter determines the handicap:
0 or 5 - no focus.
1 or 6 - no bombing.
2 or 7 - no shooting.
3 or 8 - no vertical movement.
4 or 9 - Wheel of Graze (dual penalty.)
Wheel of graze - if the last number was a 4 or a 9, I multiplied all the digits in the graze counter and used that last number. I multiplied multiple times if necessary.
2nd wheel of graze: If I got a double wheel of graze in a row, I had to use the last 2 numbers. Again, I multiplied multiple times if necessary.
There were specific area transitions that I substituted for the chapter mechanic (ex. the streaming section right after the start of the stage to the diamond section following.)
Comments: I freakin hated this challenge. The times that I remembered the challenge (yes, I forgot a couple of times. It was hard to keep within the guidelines,) it was very difficult. Combine that with having barely made it through the extra without restrictions, and this run was a nightmare to try. During the spinning kunai section (where it goes in a fast ring around Ran and a slow ring at the same time,) I thought the last number was 1, but I didn't see it in time, so after a few seconds, I subbed for no focus.
This run gamed over at ran's time out when I got no vertical movement.
Last thing: The only reason I didn't highlight multiple things was so that people wouldn't get confused and think I did no vertical, no bombs, no focus, and pacifist all at the same time. Also, the modification to this challenge was the wheel of graze restriction. It had like %4 something == X, and I just got confused with the original version, so I changed it.
I'll try later to complete the extra. I'll probably do Imperishable Night with Wheel of Graze later also.
