Author's comments and explanations:
This movie has been cancelled. Check the forum for our current WIP. SNES9x improvement7. Only WIP1 timing checked. No warps, passwords, etc. No difficulty selection in game. Two player run, takes no damage. Death used as a shortcut. When any enemy is hit by two players at the exact same frame, it will take 2x-3x the normal amount of damage. This makes boss fights extremely efficient. Not sure if this was a programming glitch or intentional. The double jump technique is used as often as possible to accelerate the run, including killing one player to gain extra height. The lottery is actually the fastest way to make money in the game. The lottery must be played once to obtain the pass in level 6 and the dictionary in level 8. This movie is 2:28 faster than the single player. This is due to the boss fights, the lottery vs. the dice game, and also slight optimizations such as jumping ladders as oppose to climbing.

Movie Description: Two player run of video game based on a popular japanese cartoon.
