Author's comments and explanations:

If you've ever played Megaman on the NES, you'll immediately notice how oddly similar this game is, both for the look and gameplay. The main character could very well have been one of Megaman's ancestors or previous lives (the story is set in 1999), except the game wasn't by Capcom ... so it's more of a cheap rip-off.

This game is more linear; there's 4 worlds (with 3 levels and a boss each), then the final bosses. It's also hard (no continues, no midpoints, dying at a boss forces you to redo the whole level before it), yet rewards you with one of the crappiest endings ever ...

Unlike in Megaman, you get all the weapons from the start and they have unlimited use:

I used all of them at least once, except Shield.

Glitches used:

This is actually my second run through the game (first one was 17:51, but I wanted to improve it before submitting). It's still possible to save a few more seconds, but mostly from minor things I only noticed in the later parts of the recording, and also because I still haven't quite figured out the perfect timing and control sequence for walljumping.
