Author's comments and explanations:

In this movie i try to improve previous run by zyr2288. Using new strategies, reducing lag frames, optimising some boss fights allowed me to save 149 frames.

Level 2, reducing amount of lag frames in the "laggy" room, faster boss fight.

Level 3, using Soig's pacifist root (more double jumps), faster boss fight.

Level 4, removing lag frames, faster boss fight.

Level 6, having better global timer and using pause to control lazers.

Level 7, taking B (invincibility) allows to take a faster path.
