Author's comments and explanations:
Improvement to max score branch of Pifall II with improved optimization

Game objectives

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


I realized that Harry sticks his foot out when he jumps, this allows several opportunities to turn around faster after collecting treasure, although not always since sometimes you need to wait anyway. You can als end input a few frames early by jumping.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Accepting as an improvement of the published movie. As max score is not a vaultable category, it stays at Moons.
