Author's comments and explanations:
This is a TAS of a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for SEGA Genesis where Vector the Crocodile is in Sonic 1, which was created by E-122-Psi. Every level abuses a bug (with the exception of Labyrinth Act 3, Star Light Act 3 and Final Zone), only present in this hack, where spindashing into an object or wall, and then spindashing again as soon as the camera catches up so that Vector is back in the middle of the screen, causes the stage to level wrap and zips Vector to the end of the level. The aim of this TAS is to beat the game as quickly as possible.

There's a faster way where when stomping down in the ground then spindash again you'll do the level warp again. There were 2 glitches that were found for example (Walking on air, and in Labyrinth zone 3 the Ice Cap Zone Level Skip Glitch)

There may be improvements in the future and ill do the even more obsoleted one.

This was hard cause Vector is actually slow when walking. Still was easy and did it in 1 day.

ThunderAxe31: Judging.

ThunderAxe31: Hello and welcome to TASVideos, DarkShamilKhan!

We have some quality standards for accepting TAS movies, and as some users already mentioned in the submission thread, your movie fails to meet a couple of them.

First of all, your movie is slower than a movie found on YouTube. You need to be faster or at very least match all known records.

Secondly, your movie wasn't considered entertaining by the audience. Note that this is a requirement for ROM hacks.

I recommend you to read our Movie Rules, in order to understand how to produce higher quality TASes. Also remember that you can ask in the Ask a Judge thread for any doubt you may have.

This submission has to be rejected, but don't let this take you down: there is always room for improving, and we're here for helping you. Better luck next time!
