Author's comments and explanations:
Let's try this again. This movie improves the published movie by 92 frames. And my first attempt by 43 frames.

Game objectives

  • Aims for the fastest time


Funny thing that I totally missed the opportunity to soft reset the game to get better RNG for the first stage. Oh well.

The second stage is a little bit worse now but it is still better than in the published movie.

Ram Addresses

Address Domain Size Notes
13 Main RAM Byte X Position
1B Main RAM Byte Y Position

Useful script for the second stage
