pretty fun game
the only problem is one clumsy death near the end
because of bad emulation
other than that the run is pretty good.
: This is your third
submission which does not hold up to the site's standards in optimization. Spikestuff's post on the discussion topic
shows how this run can be improved in multiple ways, including a comparison run in which he clears the first stage much faster. To summarize:
- You push the button to start the game much later than is necessary. You already lose roughly 5 seconds at the start because of this alone.
- You miss shots everywhere, which generally just looks very sloppy. Additionally, you clearly try to reach an energy pod in the first stage but fail to reach it because you're too late - this looks incredibly sloppy. You have rerecords to go back and fix these sort of mistakes - this is what you have to use them for.
- Spikestuff's comparison run also shows that you go to the next stage by raising your score by destroying enemy ships. You miss many ships, which means you lose a lot of time and enter the next stages much later. Look at Spikestuff's run and how he clinically nails almost every ship he comes across.
- Finally, use the NTSC-USA version of a ROM unless you know about differences with other versions (such as PAL, which is used in this run). While this case is debatably an exception, in most cases the NTSC-USA version is preferred as per the movie rules.
Since this is your third submission I have had to reject now, I am removing your ability to submit movies. If you want to upload a movie, you can upload it to userfiles
. If you wish to submit another movie to the workbench for publication, you can upload your movies to userfiles. Your submission privilege will be restored only if you have proven you can create movies worthy of publication. For that, please read the MovieRules
again to see what is required for an acceptable, publishable TAS conforming to the standards of this site.
