This movie features a perfect example of what can occur when TASers will go to any extreme to sequence break a long game. Very little that is recognizable remains. Cpadolf forgoes key items, yet bothers to collect the X-Ray Scope, an item normally useless to an experienced Super Metroid player.

With the use of the X-Ray Scope to get out of the rooms' bounds, some non-trivial physics abuse, and esoteric RAM data manipulation via dying in a certain room, the amount of tasks Samus usually has on Zebes has been cut to almost nothing. No boss is ever fought in this TAS, and even Mother Brain is skipped completely. The in-game completion time is 00:12, and only 6% of the items are collected, making this the lowest legitimate percent completion ever achieved.

This is an improvement of 10.44 seconds real-time, or 2.38 seconds in-game, over the previous run of this category.

If you thought this was fast, check out the run that beats the game even faster using the glitchy charged Space/Time Beam.

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.
