Author's comments and explanations:
Pac-Land is a 1984 arcade game that saw ports to later home consoles, the PCE version being more true to the original release. it also has a stage in super smash bros ultimate, so that's pretty cool!

(Link to video)

this run completes 8 trips of the game, after that the game shows a "The End" screen.

there's not much I'm going to mention in this tas as it's fairly straight forward. there's a few times where I can clip in the haunted house levels to get farther and some places where I can jump at the right time to push me forward. everything else is just clever timing to get around object in the fastest way possible.

ThunderAxe31: Judging.

ThunderAxe31: I took a quick look at how the movement works in this game, and I was able to save about 3 seconds during the first 32 seconds alone (movie file here, more explanations here). Since these improvements could be applied to a whole run, it means that the submitted movie is largely suboptimal. Rejecting.
