Author's comments and explanations:
The aim here it to beat the final boss "any ol' how". This run does not collect all the bonus rooms (it's not a 101% run). It doesn't even enter all levels - it uses the warp glitch from the first world that leads onto the second-last level in world 3 (it's a well known glitch).

The in-game time is 22 minutes and 18.8 seconds (shown as 0:22 because the game doesn't display seconds, but it still keeps track of them internally).

The re-recount count is exaggerated - I had to redo all of the last world because of a de-synching in Blackout Basement. The actual count is around 4000.

This (a small re-record count) means that I wasn't as picky about saving 1 or 2 frames here and there, especially in the last world - it was over 100 frames slower that what I initially had for it. So I suspect that this run is improvable by 0.5% or maybe even 1%.
