Author's comments and explanations:
Here it is. A pretty good game for Sega Genesis. The man of steal, in tights and underpants on the outside. I talk about SUPERMAN of course! :D

In this game he's kinda soft. Must been the beginning of his career, cous he's not that all mighty and stuff. Thats why I take damage. Hardest level to complete was most probably level 2. Especially *spoiler* the train part. You will somewhat notice funny stuff in it. Such as me jumping into walls. That's because I manipulate some enemies that way. I tried to be as accurate as possible. I started out this run at 6% speed. Then I got the gens_movie_test9c.exe from Jyzero so that I was able to use the advance frame key instead. This shaved off alot of seconds for sure. Some times I even advanced in real time, where little, very little or no accuracy is needed. In the first level I don't kill as many as possible because I thought I'd have some fun with them. But instead I gathered score from other objects. Might seem kinda dumb. But thats the way I did it. In later levels I smoke almost everything that moves. :D

As stated above you will see alot of variation in this movie. Even though you might find it crazy some times. Non the less I think it's probably a good watch.

Oh.. BTW. The annoying thing at the last boss. He only requires ONE more hit. But instead he chooses to fly around like a retarded retard just to let the seconds fly past about as fast. I really tried and tried to fix/change this problem. But it woulden't help. So I decided that this is the way it has to be then.

Feel free to ask questions and leave GOOD criticism if you have any(There's always criticism so I would be surprised if there where non this time).

In short, for those who refuses to read the long message above:

Thanks to Zer0 goes out for helping me with hexediting.


Truncated: This is currently the oldest submission in the queue (I think). I'm not sure what to do with it. It's not badly played, but a lot of people seemed to complain about the game choice, the autoscrollers are kind of lackluster.

Opinions are very welcome. I'll make a final call in about a week.


Truncated: After a long time of not being able to make up my mind, some more feedback finally tipped the scales in favor of rejection. The votes haven't been that positive overall, and I think it's mainly the choice of game that does it.

With this, the oldest submission in the queue is from 2005.


Truncated: This submission has been put back for judging due to change of publication rules. After rewatching it, there are no glaring mistakes. Since it was made in 2004, I would not be surprised if it couldn't be improved, though. I accept it for publication in the vault tier.
