My 8th submission of 2012.

This is 22:58.48 faster than the previous movie by adelikat!

Everything is done faster in this version. I worked hard to walk in straight lines.

I think there should be 2 branches for Glover; any% and all-stages. This movie should not obsolete adelikat's.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: Mupen64 0.5 re-recording v8
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Uses a game-breaking glitches
  • Genre: Platformer


Fastest TAS I’ve ever done. Took me 2 days! I just couldn’t resist beating my old pal adelikat. Though, in my opinion, I think this is less entertaining than his run.

Tricks used in this run

  • By rapidly mashing the L button you go really fast.
  • At the very beginning you can move earlier by mashing the Z button.
  • You can clip directly to the boss room of every stage by using the crystal. This was found by Heeheex2 and Fenrikaz. Though, it was much harder to do with the barrier blocking the way, but it still turned out possible. I doubt this trick can be done on console.

Special thanks

  • Venick409: Gave me some advices throughout the TAS .
  • Heeheex2 and Fenrikaz : For finding the crystal clipping technique.
  • Kyman: Found a 3-frame faster crystal clip strat.

Suggested screenshots


(Note: the pause at the end of the movie is caused by mupen. It's garbage input.)
