Author's comments and explanations:
I haven't seen any glitchless TASes of this lately so I decided to make one sure it still does the jump through enemies and pirhanna plants tricks but no walking through bricks glitched flagpoles no nothing a glitch free TAS. I wanted to find a glitch free run but it seems there are none to this is my TAS.

Mothrayas: Hello kusoman, and welcome to TASVideos.

Unfortunately, I am rejecting your submission, as it does not meet the standards of optimization in order to the published on this site. There are a lot of unnecessary slowdowns, pauses and other errors which cause the run to lose a lot of time. For more information about the technical flaws in this run, see this post.

Also, "glitchless" is not a good category as there is very little difference between a standard glitched run and a glitchless run; an optimized glitchless run would only save a handful of seconds at best compared to a standard run.

Additionally, Super Mario Bros. is not recommended for new TASers to try and submit a movie of, as the existing runs are already very thoroughly optimized and very hard to improve, and they also set a very high standard for runs of the game.

I recommend you take a good look at runs like [1715] NES Super Mario Bros. (JPN/USA PRG0) "warps" by HappyLee in 04:57.31 to see what kind of quality we expect for a tool-assisted speedrun to be accepted on this site. Be sure to also read and understand the Guidelines in order to see what is needed for a TAS worthy to publish on the site.
