This 1 player warpless timeattack is very precise and abuses all sorts of luck, bugs and glitches in the game, also doing very daring maneuvers. Enjoy!

Description:

- 1 player, warpless
- As fast as possible
- Takes hits to manipulate luck on Dark Queen fight (but no damage)
- Highest score (999.999)

Features:

- Manipulates luck on various places to get enemies where it works better.
- High jump glitch used on the bike and on the surf board (aesthetics)
- Getting through walls trick used to gain some time, even though the checkpoints still need to be marked or else the game crashes (thats why i wait for the checkpoint after passing through the walls).
- Robo Manus fight luck manipulated to get as most downwards punches as possible.
- left + right glitch used on level 9 to skip helicopter and avoid rubber ducks
- Killing the racing rat on level 10 automatically ends the level (glitch).
- 25 lives left at the end of the game (none lost)


Phil: I'm pretty sure the file size will be big but now with archive.org, we can probably host the movie file there. I'm gonna encode it.
