Author's comments and explanations:
- HARD level of difficulty
- entertainment!
- no damage
- aims for fastest time

Even though it looks like i chose normal mode, it was played on hard. It's because i pressed start right before you could see mickey spinning the difficulty sign.

Some tricks happen here, i hope you like it!

Bisqwit: Why is this movie slower than the other submission for the same game? Is it because the other movie is played on easy mode?

Bisqwit: Apparently yes. The author should have responded here instead of keeping the submission in a delayed ("waiting for answer from author") state.
FODA: sorry about that, i was traveling i was away from computer.

Bisqwit: This movie has received good votes, but it's not good enough. It's lacking accuracy. I'll await at least for the next version.

Bisqwit: Reopening this submission for second evaluation because of requests.

Bisqwit: Processing this movie now.
I still don't like it, but I think less people will complain if I publish it than if I reject it.

When I talked about accuracy, I was referring to the woodblock monster in the forest - you didn't seem to hit it at first possible instant.
But what really bothers me is that the movie doesn't look impressive. I don't see that there was any challenge in making of this movie.
FODA: yes i DO hit him on the earliest frame possible. even though he is standing already, he isn't on "ready to recieve damage" state.
This movie is as impressive as this game allows. You won't see a better run on it.
