Here we have another game completely demolished by abuse of game breaking glitches.

The author initiates a glitch involving the character dying and gaining a 1-up during the fadeout to a Game Over screen. This allows him to skip many levels and complete the game in just 3 and half minutes!

For fast completion that does not use this glitch there is the 2-player version.

This is an improvement of almost 9 seconds over the previous run.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
