Fixed that for you.

In the original, I made it up to
The 'bug' factory. Was able to make Tier 3 bugs effortlessly- it's the last thing with a notable multiplier, so I considered the game finished.

Beat it twice in 2 days. Once on normal, the other time on hard.

Fun game, but Hardmode Hell can fuck right off.

Beat it, although I cheated to get more candies at the start.
It was still a really difficult game.
I think I'll give hard mode a miss. I ended up just teliport-invincibility spamming all the time.
Good game, thanks for the post.

I just imagined a huge security system with Art walking up to it. Suddenly there's a full body scan and the system simply says "Oldfaggotry confirmed." And a giant door opens and behind it is a gilded room full of gentlemanly discourse.

How on earth do you beat this in a day?
I finally beat it but getting to the last randomize bug console is super difficult.
I used the level 3(?) bug that triples your candy over and over while converting my candy back.
Finally made it.
Turns out that after you get your candy into standard form the candy converter stops reducing your candy. My guess is that this is because the accuracy isn't stored to a high enough degree. (To a computer 3.141*10^15 - 1 = 3.141*10^15 may very well be true).

If you watch carefully you can actually see yourself on the map. You start on the left and move right. You constantly move up and down randomly.
In this way you can see where you are. You should be able to get past most bugs by using health potions and then teliporting back, planting a tree and drinking more health potions while you wait for the tree to go. Kind of like normal. Then just before you get to the dev you must use invisibility and then as soon as you get into the dev battle you start pulling you finger over the keyboard to press all the keys. You can try mashing the keyboard but your keyboard my register it wrong. If may take a few attempts as the bugs you fight are random and the key you must press changes each time. Don't press F5.

Additionally, you can tell what enemy you're fighting based on its weapon. If you see "breath" "itself" "religion" or "demon claws", pop an invuln potion or you're going to get rustled up.

That's true. But I was too fail to think remember what weapons went with what.
You could also use an escape potion so you can restart the level and hope for better odds.
I never really found much use of escape potions in general though. Did they have a use I didn't notice?

Escape potions were pretty shit.

But yeah, most of Dev Computer is luck. Just keep at it until you get a lucky run.

Hardmode hell on the other hand... Ugh. Requires amazing luck and allows for absolutely no mistakes. ._.
