Introduction

Okay, here's the other one. This run improves [2126] NES Where's Waldo? (USA) by Fladdermus in 02:12.5 by 401 frames using the best luck for each levels. You won't see much difference (except that the sections are faster), and there was absolutely no time to add in entertainment. Okay, a little bit at the final "slot machine" level.

For entertainment,

  • "Trying to be entertaining but it's depressing" hand at final level.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.0

  • Entertains without losing a frame

  • Getting a better layouts for the 2 interactive scene

Miscellaneous
