Author's comments and explanations:
An improvement to Solarplex's run of 104 frames from better optimization and improved emulation.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.11.7
  • Beats the game as fast as possible


There isn't all that much to say about the run. It takes the same route as the published run but is a bit more optimized. Also, several emulation errors are corrected which helps save a few frames too.

I'm glad I was able to improve this one since the blue bars in the published run really needed to go.

Samsara: Judging.

Samsara: Audience entertainment level seems to have dropped off since the previous run, so I'm accepting this to Vault as an improvement to the published run.

Samsara: Setting to delayed, pending improvements. File is now replaced with a 28 frame improvement. Re-judging.

Samsara: Re-accepting to Vault. Despite getting more Yes votes, it's still not getting enough attention.

fsvgm777: Processing.
