Yet another homebrew (an "updated" (with graphics and music) port from the ZX Spectrum version) for the NES made by Shiru and his bros. More info and dl @ http://shiru.untergrund.net/software.shtml (NES/Famicom, Alter Ego)

I made a temporary encode with hq2x scalar and very bad encode settings

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.1
  • Aims for fastest possible time
  • Entertains without losing a frame
  • Tries to sync with the music while waiting for unmanipulatable things

The game is fairly simple. Just like the character's 1px line hitbox on his left side. You can either switch to your alter ego (which has a "travel time" depending on how far away is the two entity) or move left right up down. While traveling, the enemies won't move. There's 25 levels.


See you until my next TAS =)
