Version 2

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.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.7.0

  • Aims for Fastest Time

  • Collects All Items


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.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Accepting as an improvement to the published movie.

Guga: Processing...
