Super Mario World "walkathon" TAS by skamastaG & Thegreginator

(Link to video)

Contrary to common belief, Super Mario World can be completed without pressing Y/X and left/right at all on the ground or in air. This is a sidestroller, speedwalk, walkathon, or whatever you want to call it...

This is Super Mario World completed without running or flying. That's right, we don’t run or fly once in this movie. One would think it's impossible to complete SMW without running or flying, but we’ve proven those suspicions wrong. Some of the game glitches weren't available for this mode of play, but I'm sure this run is entertaining enough to warrant at least 7-8 views.

Essentials: This run satisfies the following criteria:

Emulator Used: SNES9x 1.43 +v9

If your playing the Walking Mario in Super Mario World Speed Walk, you should run at no time. So, are we doing the 11-exit run as walking mario? YES! You can use Yoshi, doesn't count as running.

Important Fact

Left/right and Y/X are never pressed at the same time on land or in air. This puts mario's maximum speed at 21, where the normal running speed is 49 and flight is 51. However, we manage to exceed the 21 max speed on a few occasions through various techniques.

Happy April 1st!

Truncated: I don't think this movie makes a good addition to the site, because it is basically SMW, but slower. It is presented as a "doesn't run" run, but presses the run button quite often, which sort of defeats the purpose and doesn't make much sense from a viewer perspective, even if it doesn't increase the speed.

I think we can accept runs with unexpected and interesting limitations in the future also, but speed-walk is not very unexpected, especially not on 1 April.
