Author's comments and explanations:
First of all, I want to apologize for using the monotone Gameboy-mode for this run. I didn't realize this game supported Super gameboy until I finished it. Since hex-editing doesn't help in this case and I don't plan to redo it I'm still submitting it.

This run beats nitrogenesis' submitted & canceled run by 1 minute and 34 seconds.

Objectives

  • Aims for fastest time
  • Takes no damage
  • Abuses programming errors in the game
  • Genre: Platform

Used emulator: VisualBoyAdvance v21

Level 1

I'm getting the flying squirrel-suit and skip a large part of the level. This skip seems to be intentional by the programmers as there was a 1-up, though it would be impossible to get there without autofiring A at 15 Hz (every 5th frame).

Walking is faster than jumping, so I only jump when necessary. As a flying squirrel, you can shoot two shots at once. If they hit the boss simultaneously, they count as two hits. So I beat all the bosses in a lower number of "rounds".

Level 2

I skip a small part of the level by flying over the wall and towards the ladder. I apologize if all this flying removes the entertainment, but it was faster. Nothing much else to say here...

Level 3

This level is probably boring to watch due to much continuous walking going on. Lag frames can not be reduced in this game (delaying for a frame brings up only more lag frames).

At the end of this boss fight I reach the lower floor which is normally inaccessible.

Level 4

I grab palm trees for a little boost. There isn't much to say here either...

The end text can't be skipped. I end the movie at the earliest frame possible.

Possible improvements

None that I'm aware of. This run needs to be redone in SGB-mode, but I still submitted it since I won't redo it and to hear about people's opinions.

Closing words

Enjoy the run and have a nice day.


FractalFusion: This run, though passable, was unfortunately recorded in the wrong mode (GB rather than SGB), which is against the rules. As there is a significant visual difference, I will have to reject the run.

Should the movie be fixed so that it plays correctly in SGB mode (assuming no other submissions of this game has occurred), I will reverse the decision.
