Author's comments and explanations:
FCE Ultra 0.98.12, no special settings used. NTSC, 26:10 total time.

Starts from beginning, plays all the way through, no warps or passwords used.

At some parts it appears you can walk through the enemies without taking damage, I think I only have to do this once or twice to save time. Most noticeable abuse was the first level of the second island, right before the boss.

Takes no damage, no deaths deaths, 1 character, no restarting.

Goes for fastest possible completion, picks up items(bones/stones) that dont take up any time.

Im guessing this is a lesser-known game, but ive seen a few people that wanted a movie of it. Its basicly a one(or two) player platform game except you kill enemies with your club or club + stones, cant step on ememies unless you have a special 'hard feet' power-up from one of the shops.(I never bother with this in the movie)

Description:

Im sure some people have played this game.. with 3 lives(Can buy more, but I dont think it happens often), NO continues and like 20-30 levels ive only ever beaten it on a real NES once, and it took a few years of on/off play.

It aims to getting the Auto Club/Fast stones/Power stones at the first shop(after level 2) to make the bosses as fast as possible, and keeps it through the whole game. Some tricks I try to use to make it interesting is killing enemies from behind, when im on top of them, and any other odd angles that are very hard to pull off on a NES consistantly.


Truncated: Rejected. The biggest reason for that is that the game is not suited for speedrunning (at all), but the movie looked sloppy in places too, notably bosses.
