This beats my old submission(http://tasvideos.org/4331S.html)
by 264 frames by using the Balloon Early Glitch with the scorpions at the top level. Thanks Cak for the discovery. I don't understand why I did not think about that at the time since all sprites are on the global timer.
Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is a platforming video game originally released for the Atari 2600 video game console in 1984.
- Emulator used: BizHawk 1.7.0
Only thing different from my any% TAS (http://tasvideos.org/4330S.html),
is the balloon glitch and route change to obtain all items.
Balloon Glitch: Swaps the bat for the balloon instantly when entering the balloon area, saving around 4 seconds each time I use the glitch.
