Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk
  • Beats Game in fewest frames
  • Doesn't color a dinosaur


So, After MrWint disassembled the game, I took this and tried to see what the fewest frames to get 5.57 was. Turns out, the fewest frames to get 5.57 is 499. Omnigamer made a spreadsheet to simulate the times, (5.57 is fastest time, get out of here todd)

Suggested Screenshots

frame 199 frame 359

I'm too lazy to encode


Masterjun: Hello DatOneJoker and welcome to TASVideos. Here on the site we have movie rules. Important for this submission is the "The movie must be properly attributed" part. This run has the exact same input as the currently published movie, except for the last 4 frames which were trimmed. No own effort was made to make sure this even is the fastest way to attain the goal, as it's easily possible to cut off more frames for the same result (see the "A modicum of effort is required" rule).

This movie plagiarizes the currently published run.
