Author's comments and explanations:
     * Uses FCEU 0.98.16
     * Aims for fastest time
     * Abuses programming errors
     * Takes damage to save time

This is 1099 frames (18.32 seconds) faster than TheAxeMan's NG3 run. How did I save so much time? About half of the time saved was from using Up+A to cancel attack animations. Over a second was saved by pressing forward every other frame to move on the squishy floor in 6-2 instead of just jumping. The rest came from subpixel optimization, using Left/Right+A for faster wall climbing and just generally doing stuff faster.
