Author's comments and explanations:
Here it is, an improved run through this game. I have optimized some of the action which was just thrown together in previous runs, but most of the improvement comes from larger changes. I can't believe no one else had ever realized how slow those ladders are. Also, glitch fans will be glad to see another one used.

Well, I actually own this game and have many childhood memories of attempts to collect all the treasures, but I never thought it could go so fast. Enjoy!

Technical details: Uses glitches, uses death as a shortcut, as fast as possible, collects minimal items.


Bisqwit: I think hopper's comment sums the spirit of this movie very well: "Just when you thought this game couldn't get any weirder."
Excellent work. Publishing!
