Author's comments and explanations:

I won't be able to get an encode done in time for tonight, so you'll have to settle for the real thing. Sorry :/

I decided to do this little run as a belated April Fools sendoff. Snood was a total ripoff of Bust-A-Move freeware PC game that bore a very strong resemblance to the arcade puzzle game Bust-A-Move, and other games of its ilk like Puzzle De Pon. This free PC game was ported to various other platforms, usually handhelds. The Game Boy Advance version is a particularly butchered version of what was already a pretty mediocre game.

In this short demo, I complete all fifty of the stages in "time attack mode" in less than six minutes.

A few notes about the luck in this game:

I had fun making this submission, and a happy belated April Fools Day to you all!

adelikat: Replaced submission file.
theenglishman: the new vbm is a slightly longer movie which establishes the real end (triggering the end cutscene). The final cutscene can only be triggered by pressing A after/during the final time bonus countdown.

adelikat: Positive viewer response and nice fast pace. Accepting for publication.
