In this run of Sonic Advance, the author doesn't take advantage of the game-destroying spindash glitch featured in the normal run. It goes somewhat slower because of this, but new inventive solutions are used to get through each act, and the result is still much faster than any oversized ferret ought to be moving.

There are two encodes for this movie: The first is a standard encode, whereas the second encode shows two screens: the screen on the left is the unmodified gameplay, and the screen on the right is from a hack which keeps Sonic in the center of the screen more often. (Note that this hack has no effect on the actual gameplay, only on the watcher's viewing experience.)

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.
