  • Cleaned up some swings, made use of more ceilings
  • Skipped the minefield in level 1
  • Some route changes
  • Took some different exits to access different maps in levels 1, 2 and 4 (sewer, train and prison (?), respectively)
  • Optimised some bosses due to having better weapons

Useful memory addresses

  • 13A0: X
  • 1418: Y
  • 5460/5494/54FC/54C8: Boss HP

Areas for improvement

  • Moving platforms can still be improved (believe me, I tried my best to skip them)
  • I actually didn't calculate the time differences from each major route change; taking the upper path in level 4 may well have been slower as there are moving platforms and an impassable barrier that only disappears after the prisoner walks away
  • Again, finding a way to clip through the egg-doors on level 5 would be a huge time save

Masterjun: Judging.

Masterjun: Accepted to Moons as an improvement to the previous run.
