Author's comments and explanations:
Inversion is a homebrew game that features the ability to make solid objects intangible and vice versa. This movie enters Extra world by using the password "DEAD" and aims to complete it as quickly as possible. This beats the currently published [2470] NES Inversion (1.4) "Extra world" by MESHUGGAH in 01:17.87 by 86 frames, or 1.43 seconds.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.2
  • Game version used: 1.4
  • Complete Extra world as quickly as possible

Hello! I've seen TASes for years, but this is my first time actually creating a real TAS.

Soon after I submitted the original run that saved 56 frames, MESHUGGAH has made further improvements. 64 frames are saved from stage 2, and 22 frames are saved from stage 6, both by using faster routes.

Newly found tricks, some of which are unuseful

  • You can switch dimension and jump off from arrow walls in the same frame. It doesn't save time in extra world TAS, but it does in main levels TAS.

  • You can collect a pickup without making it disappear.

  • In a duo level, Holding L+R makes both players move right.

  • The last stage of extra world is really glitchy:
    • Pressing D+L+R or U+L+R pauses the game. Pressing it again doesn't unpause the game, you have to press T instead.
    • Only duo jumps when you press L+R.
    • Only main jumps when you press A+L+R.
    • Only duo dies when you press T+D+L+R or T+U+L+R.
    • Only main dies when you press S+T+D+L+R or S+T+U+L+R.

Mothrayas: Judging. Will update the movie file once the frame war has settled down.

Mothrayas: Replaced with v9 (a 30-frame improvement over the initial submission) and accepting as an improvement to the published movie.
