Author's comments and explanations:
This game is from a horror movie of second zone, very little known! In this film, people are infected with bacteria after eating stale eggs, creating heavy gastrointestinal problems, which change humans into eggs ...

And you know what happens to a fertile egg!

For those who don’t know, it gives ketchup, full and with the leftovers, you can always make a burger, if you find the bread! Enough about cooking, I hope you're hungry!

Let's eat!

On the menu tonight:

  • Uses BizHawk 2.3.0
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Try to reduce lag
  • Uses glitches to save time
  • Force to play NTSC mode
  • Genre: Action/Platform

In this game you must rescue all prisoners to open the door and find the exit. There are 15 levels and 4 boss levels.

Tricks and glitches :

-Infinite flame (trick):

You can use this input series to use the infinite flamethrower (1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,...) , this can do create graphical bugs and crashes the game.

-Climb the ladder quickly (trick) :

You can catch the ladders more fast, only if the scrolling is advanced and if it's to use up direction. To go down the ladders, it's more fast to jump into them, it's possible to make a precise jump and enter into the ladder at the limit of the out and to can out directly when you fall, else you are obliged to continue to fall inside the ladder.

-You see me, you don’t see me (glitch) :

When you use the flamethrower at the extreme right or left and than the flame can reach the limit of screen, Ripley disappear because values of the hitbox past to 2, like you take damages but don't take really that damage, however the hitbox value is freeze at 2 on 2 different addresses. It's super, you are becoming invincible...
                 ...but invisible!

The dark side of this glitch :

-You can't use elevators

-Ripley's hitbox have some problems to rescue prisoners or catching bullets and other objects, it possible to manipulate X position, but Y position as always as the same value than Ripley's potition.

- If you do this glitch at the extreme right (and conversely) of the screen, you can go out only at the extreme left because you are obliged to reappear to finish the level and you can only break this glitch, than if you repeating it on the opposite side where it was used. It's possible to change this.

Main qualities:

-You can téléport your hitbox's X position (I haven't find this second addresse of X position for the moment!) and rescue some prisoners more quickly, When you use the flamethrower with specific inputs on some frames (ex: 1,_,1,1,_,1,_,1,_,1,_,...(infinite flame,you can even use it to touch the level ending trigger (must have rescue all prisoners).

-You can go from right to left (and conversely) of the screen, when you move more faster than the scrolling ( a slope can help, or catch an ladder can create a slight shift with the scrolling) In this movie, I use the ladder combined with this glitch and visit a secret room (abandoned, and there are plenty of them!).

- Becoming invisible, it help to reduce the lags of all Bosses animation dying.


feos: Fantastic movie! This game is way more fun than the NES version, and due to the glitchfest shown in this run, it's even more fun than the Genesis version! I'm considering starring this movie in the future. Audience enjoyed it too, accepting to Moons. And great submission notes!
