Author's comments and explanations:
Whew! Finally, here's my Gremlins 2 timeattack. Gremlins 2 is a top-down action game that is very difficult, and it features some nice music.

I disliked the excessive jumping in the previous movie, so I tried to jump as little as possible in this run. This way, you can enjoy the music of the game.

I used FCEU because I hate Famtasia, and I really love the single-frame advancement of FCEU. You might notice the extreme amount of "twitching", this is because almost the whole movie was done frame-by-frame (yeah, suicide, isn't it?), and it doesn't slow it down. I know some people find this annoying, but meh, it's fun. :)

This timeattack is 33 seconds faster than the previous version, due to various optimizations in many places, sometimes involving taking damage.

The "p" item I buy in the store is a weapon upgrade; the bosses can be killed MUCH faster with it than without. This is also why I have to collect those three crystal balls.

Aims for fastest possible time, takes damage to save time, falls into a pit once to save time. No passwords or warps (there are no warps). I would have abused some programming errors, but I don't know of any. :)
