  • Single level demonstration
  • Heavy glitch abuse

So what the hell happened here? A few glitches actually.

One is that this game did not take at all into account, "overpushing" in certain directions (forgive me, I'm not sure the terminology here). This instantly sends Elmo into a super fast walking animation. As seen on the TASInput plugin, these over values are only possible during diagonal movement which is why you Elmo constantly walking in diagonals.

Two is that once you get ahead of a camera you get a common N64 exploit that I call "distance displacement". You are ahead of the camera thus all the "pixels" are "tiny", however the game doesn't expect you to be there and doesn't

Thirdly, it seems that in the physics of the N64 world when you get stuck on a chicken you float into the sky.


mmbossman: Rejecting for not playing on the hardest difficulty level as it states in the guidelines ;) Nice glitching though!
