    Atic Atac Walkthrough

    This path will work for all three characters, as it does not use any of their unique shortcuts. Make sure that when you complete the game on one character, you select New Game instead of just jumping right back in. Otherwise, the locations of certain items will be randomized.

    Using this path I was able to finish with no deaths. You don't even need the Red Key. Just make sure you keep an eye on your health and rewind if you get hit to conserve as much health as possible, especially in the room with the Demon. He deals a massive amount of damage, and you'll most likely have to circle him a couple times for the door to open.

    The amount of time it takes will vary as well, mainly due to the random opening/closing of the doors. I did one run in 7:06 and then another in only 5:56 simply because the doors were more cooperative that time.

    (Note: There are some screens that are staircases linking the different floors, and these only have one possible door to go through other than the one you entered, so they have been omitted from this guide. You'll usually encounter them at the end of one of the numbered steps.)
