I have the balls to bowl you over.

I also have the balls to start off with a terrible pun.

Between the time of a Submission and a decent Submission it's obvious that a decent submission for 6969 wasn't going to be made.
Enter the most important game of all time, Bowling! The most arbitrary title on this site when you go for "Perfect Game" despite the requirements.
Yes, it's repretative, yes it's same things over several frames but the most important part about all this, the female character is faster cause it's a smaller sprite (Bonus: She's Cute), being left handed gives off benefits for bowling, having slick makes the speed and this game is great.

It's all about the timing and the precision to get through this game, which is going to go greatly ignored... so nice is all I have left to say.

Just to show what's controlled in the TAS since it goes by quickly.
Spin of the bowling ball, straighter the better:

Power to give out of the bowling ball, fastest possible, without wasting frames on more powerful is the fastest:

There's also the point of where you're aiming, but that's basically useless in a "Perfect Game" in a TAS scenario as all you have to do is adjust your position.
Go watch "Golf Mode" for an example on how that works.

arkiandruski: Claimed

arkiandruski:What a nice submission to commemorate an important milestone for this site.

This run aims to get a nice round score of 300 in the nice game Super Bowling. The game is so nice, in fact, that it already has a nice run published on this site. This game features a nice mode where the nice player tries to knock down pins in some nice random difficult patterns with as few moves as possible. This adds a nice variety to what would otherwise be very repetitive (though still nice) gameplay. Looking at the ratings for the published movie, I see that it fits nicely into the Vault tier, with a nice entertainment score of 3.9.

As a nice added bonus, we have some nice rules on this nice site. It has a nice section specifically dedicated to sports games which includes this nice bullet point.

"If a run consists of doing a trivial strategy, made only nontrivial by having to do it over the course of several rounds, it will still be judged as trivial. For example, bowling games where the player gets a strike with ten pins every time."

Nice. The rules address the exact situation covered here. So with nice guidance from the nice rules, I'm going to nicely reject this nice run.
