Game objectives

  • Emulator used: Bizhawk 1.11.1
  • Aims for fastest time


This is my first finished TAS in Bizhwak. I had a lot of trouble with this emulator, and it's easier to understand how it works with simple games like this. The improvement comes from a different route in the second level, which is 70 frames faster, and 1 frame was saved from lag reduction, also in the second level.

I apologize dekutony & Weegeechan for submitting this just after their movie got published. If I were aware of this game before it, it would be a pleasure to work with you guys in this game :). Thanks for both of you for the previous movie!

ars4326: Hi, BrunoVisnadi. I've gotta say, that alternate, time-saving route on the second stage was quite clever! Going all the way up, and then back down on the other side, was not an obvious shortcut that I considered on the last submission. That just goes to show that even a tightly-optimized run can be improved upon with a fresh set of eyes. Nice work on obsoleting this one.

Accepting as an improvement to the published run!
