Hello to all fans Sunset Riders and speedruns! Present to you my TAS on the Genesis platform!

All coins, all items, all kills, highscore!

Thank you all for watching! Hope you enjoyed it!

ThunderAxe31: Judging.

ThunderAxe31: While there has been little audience reception I consider it sufficient, as I can understand the reasons why it's been not really positive. The progress through the stages is overall slow, full of waitings and downtimes, which diluted the action through most of the movie.

Another issue with this TAS is suboptimality. The author often took routes that results in obviously slow outcomes. Even if speed is not the main goal of this TAS, it should always be considered as a secondary goal.

I personally really like this goal, though I must say that it's debatable to aim for the highest possible score while avoiding to take advantage of a dynamite trick that would allow to farm points endlessly. Still, using that trick would make this goal so boring that it would lose its charm completely. So maybe we could discuss about allowing to avoid this trick, but this submission is going to be rejected anyway, so I'd like to leave it for another time.

Rejecting for low entertaining and suboptimality.
