Author's comments and explanations:

Blaster Master is quite a long game (with the current time attack at 42:57). The game consists of two main modes, when you are in the tank in an overworld kind of mode, and when you are jason exploring dungeons (where the bosses are.) You can also use jason while in the overworld but he's really weak and slow. Here's some techniques that I used make this speed run fast:

Taking Damage:

Death/Continues:

Glitches:

Interesting Game Features:

Manipulating Luck:

Swimming:

Ladders:

Slowdown:

Accurate Shooting:

That's about it, enjoy!
