Author's comments and explanations:

This is my first run.

I dont know what to say, so i go ahead to details.

The Storyline:

This game is about Jake and Elwood, fanatic for blues music, they felt into a wacky adventure. The real game name is "The Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure", but for some reason the SNES version got title changed. This game has 35 stages, no bosses, you can either choose Jake or Elwood, by pressing slect at the character screen.

Goals:

  • Finish fast as possible.
  • Takes damage to save time.

Movie Information:

  • Use WIP1 Timing
  • Fake Mute desync workaround
  • 20m13s
  • 72789 frames
  • used Snes9x-1.43 - improvement15.1 - win32

Tricks:

Elwood is faster and jumps higher, in other hand, little Jake is stronger.

In the very beggining of each stage your character will be invencible for some frames, i used that just in stage 31.

I didnt find any glitches in this game, exept for one which freezes the character.


Truncated: Hmm... sad to say this doesn't look that well optimised.

For example at the start of stage 6, you jump up some platforms, but even though you are going right later you dont keep on the right side of them. In the first basement level when climbing chains, you don't jump up them, you only climb, even though i can see in the rest of the movie that this is possible. You don't keep very close when following the spiked balls in stage 8. You bump into several corners and lose your momentum etc. Taking all this together it seems a bit sloppy.

I will reject this movie, but do try again. The game is a uneventful but I think it could be made interesting to watch. 2 player might be a good idea, if it doesn't slow the action down too much. It seems 2-player plays different stages also...
