Author's comments and explanations:
Emulator used: Gens Re-recording v11a

No warps, no passwords.

Programming errors that were abused: Scrolling away enemies.

Takes damage. Uses death (To save a few frames in the end).

Aims for: Fastest possible.

The game is basically a game related to the movie "The Terminator", released in 1984, it is very true to the movie itself.

Previous runs I've made was rejected, partly because the run wasn't fast enough. I've been working on this project for a month or so now, and I honestly can't see where I could've improved the run. This run is 8 seconds faster than the movie I submitted in the following topic: http://tasvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3366&start=20

It is impossible to make a fastest-possible-run by still maintaining an entertaining run, therefor I scrolled away the enemies. I took damage at on a pair of places to boost the speed of the player.


Truncated: After many revisions, I think this is now good enough to be published. It has tricks, it is pretty fast, it is varying enough to not get boring. Setting to accepted.
