Author's comments and explanations:
This is our joined effort into making an enjoyable movie for battlemaniacs. Unfortunately, the problem with this game is the ammount of autoscrolling levels, but we did our best to keep it entertaining.

There was some manipulation on the stuff dark queen says on the cut scenes, which saved some time. Also, wherever possible we tried to double the score by hitting enemies more than they should take (that's a programming error)

Differently than some may think, we didnt record this at the same time, as we live very far from each other. We both controlled both characters. We made this movie together for convenience and to make it a better movie.

At this game, when playing at 2 players mode about 11 seconds are added because of bonus stages. The game reserves some time to count score, eventhough no pins were gotten. (if pins were taken, it would be slightly even slower). But the fighting makes up for a faster time.
This one is 48 seconds faster than the lastest 1p submission with a time of 19:56.

Played on 2 players mode B (they can't hit each other)
1 person controls both characters
No deaths
Aims for fastest time
Aims for score without wasting time

Emulator used: snes9xw-improvement7
Settings used:
Use WIP1 timing = no
Allow left+right/up+down = yes
volume envelope height reading = yes
fake mute desync workaround = no

Movie Description suggestion:

This is that game that looks like a remake of the first battletoads game.
The toads go after silas volkmire and dark queen because someone was kidnapped again...
Features 2 players and aims for fastest completion time while bashing through the enemies and showing off.
