Author's comments and explanations:
I was inspired to do this run when I watch the Angry Video Game Nerd's Transformer review. As he describes in the video, this game notoriously difficult to play. Poor hit detection, 1 hit and you are dead, awkward controls, and very little in the way of power-ups make this game frustrating for the average player.

!Summary

Notes

  • One hit and you are dead, period. And many enemies are designed/placed to make sure that happens, a lot. There are a number of awkward looking moments in the run as a result. Each situation is the fastest method (that I was able to come up with).

  • I use warps in level 2 & 7 to skip levels 3 & 8

  • Level 9 one is a lot like SMB 4-4 where you have to pick the right path...Except in the most assist example in gaming history! Here is a map of the route that should be taken: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/nes/file/578338/47897 And of course this route is the hardest way to get through the level.

I guess that is it. Enjoy.


adelikat: This is improvable, oh well
