Author's comments and explanations:

The marble madman strikes again. This time with the Genesis version of the game.

This movie is 87 frames faster than sprintgod's published version when measuring at the crossing of the finish line on the last level (2:22:58 vs 2:24:13).

Like Sprintgod, I put in my initials for the high score which eats up another 25 sec of movie length. Having no middle name allows me to one less letter to put in saving me time, woot. It's about time that came in handy.

But seriously, this is a solid improvement that comes from better precision and a few extra tricks. The most noticeable is the one in level 1. It only saves 2 frames but it looks cool :)

This is my first Genesis TAS, so it took some time learning the emulator. Hope you enjoy!

Summary:

  • Emulator used: Gens9J
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Uses death as a shortcut


Truncated: For completeness sake (and because self-judging should be kept to a minimum), I'm putting this improvement on accepted.

Bisqwit: Processing.
