Author's comments and explanations:
This run is pretty basic, it just completes Flash Columns mode real fast.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: Gens 9.5b
  • Aims for the fastest time to clear the flashing piece.
  • Plays at hardest level (level 9)
  • Plays at easiest difficulty (Novice)

Columns is a Tetris based game, that, instead of having pieces forming several shapes, the player controls 3 jewels above each other, and to make the jewels on the filed disappear, 3 or more of the same color must be lined up horizontally, vertically or diagonally. In Flash Columns, the player must delete the flashing piece.


Maybe, this mode could have been faster, if only there was better luck manipulation. But apparently, there's no way to do so. I also may have failed doing the best drop at the first piece.
NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. I'm not sure I got the right ROM though. (I tried Lemmings (JU) (REV00) [!].gen, which was the closest match to what you wrote.) Well, here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.
Bisqwit: Oh dear. NVA was totally off the track. Undoing...
adelikat: Apparently improvable in realtime. And this isn't suprising, the movie was generally lacking in impossible combos or other suprising things. Also, I think a score based run might be more appropriate for this game. Rejecting.
