Author's comments and explanations:
Improved my old Famtasia recording by 11.6 seconds. 15 seconds if you ignore the additional frames that FCEU adds between screens.

Extra tricks:

  • Moving between screens isn't a smooth process. Hitting the edge with certain frames of animation gets you around faster. The best ones are the last step before a jump, and the last few frames before landing.
  • Level 8: Jumped off the ledge on the far left instead of dropping down. For some reason hitting the wall prevents fall damage.
  • Level 10: Jumped off at the end, taking damage, but using the wall to skip the landing delay.
