Author's comments and explanations:
Turnabout/Migi Hadari U-SA is a basic and not widely known puzzle game developed by Artdink and published by Natsume.

The goal is to get rid of all colored objects by rotating the stage 90 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise. There are a total of 100 stages in the game and this movie aims to complete all of them as fast as possible.

At the time of writing this, the world record seems to be 57:14 (RTA timing)

Predicted questions section

Only 1079 rerecords?

Yes. The solutions were optimized before the movie was recorded.

Why do you change the graphics settings at the beginning?

The game lags more at certain points if Graphic is set to DEFAULT.

Why do you complete round 94 in 27 steps and round 99 in 44 steps?

Because those solutions are actually faster than the solutions used here: Round 94 in 25 steps Round 99 in 42 steps

BIOS used?


Masterjun: Judging.

Masterjun: This run looks quite optimized. It's a long puzzle game and so the reception was not quite good enough for the Moons category. Also, it should be mentioned that round 99 and 100 are completed after round 89 and before round 90.

Accepting to Vault as a fastest completion and a full completion.
