> So good news and bad news. The good news, it is possible to shave off three more moves.

> In the MORE BAD NEWS arena, the only way for you to figure out how to get it down that low is through good old fashioned blood sweat and tears. You'll have to go through the game, map it out completely, then figure out what you have to do, and then figure out how to do it in the most efficient way possible. That's the only way you're going to get a lower score than you've already got.

Rifty, I'm still working on it.
I have a very good map and object/task dependancy list and I'm convinced that I'm being as efficient as possible as to the order of things and taking the shortest routes. I'm begining to think that one of the multi step tasks has a shortcut or that I'm missing a secret passage.

Also, before me, the best scores were 225 and 231. Now that I got down to 227 I'm thining that maybe the 225 people didn't use the optimization that I did to get down from 231 to 227 so just perhaps if I find something more it will help me drop down below 225. But I'd be so happy with 225. ;) This is fun, at least I think so.


P.S Vampire Island was easier to get low score on. Anybody trying to learn to get low score, I suggest they start at Vampire Island.
