Obsoletes movie #547 (28:17.37)
Rating: 6.7 (29 votes)
- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Ristar is a large, colorful game with good music. It also has water-themed levels that aren't slow and boring, which is a true rarity.

The author of this TAS chose to get maximum height bonuses instead of using the end pole for a small, boring speed boost.

As Bag of Magic Food so excellently put it, "Starface has stretchy arms and wastes time spinning on poles."

This is a 1 minute 33 second improvement over the author's previous movie. Details about the improvements can be found in the authors comments.
