Author's comments and explanations:
Which emulator you used? FCE Ultra Which emulator settings? None

Do you use warps or passwords? None

What kind of programming errors do you abuse in the game? Making the game believe i passed through 1/2 the game.

Do you use death? Yes

What are your aims? Fastest possible

Please describe the game briefly. One of the weirdest NES games out there. They are releasing a new Boy And His Blob for the NINTENDO DS. Wonder how thats going to look.

Please describe the making of the movie. What was hard? Why would anyone like the result? After watching a video on the wall glitch, I tried it out with the help of Ketchup jellybeans. Instead of going down where the pot of junk is I just notice that they wont appear if you dont go down there so I just threw a Ketchup right next to the edge and then drew a bridge across. Now ~12 seconds faster.


Bisqwit: I'm rejecting this submission, because someone has surpassed the record this movie represents.

For reference, I quote the Guidelines:

Don't get caught of being uneducated of the game you play. Search the Internet and find out everything that matters: tricks, routes, maps, charts, bugs and existing records.
And the Rules:
A speed-oriented movie must beat all existing records If your movie is going to beat something, be sure it beats it. If your tool-assisted movie is slower than the non-toolassisted world record of the game you play, your movie will almost certainly be rejected.

In that light, I'd like to take the opportunity to say this to GuanoBowl:
Until you reach the length of 3:37 (the movie that has beaten your record, although not yet submitted for some reason), you should not submit any more test runs. We(I) appreciate high quality/noise ratio.
But I congratulate you for trying!
