Author's comments and explanations:
Improvement of hero of the day's previous run by 67 frames.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEU 0.98.28
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Abuses programming errors in the game
  • Manipulates luck

Not much need to be said. All improvements come through ladder-zip maneuvers. Level 1 and 2 are both 11 frames faster due to the frame rule and level 3 is 45 frames faster. The difference between this and the canceled run is that I (in the hurry) didn't think of "using" the ladders below Mario.

I thank hero of the day, the previous DK-TASers and all you nice people at the community!
