Author's comments and explanations:
Takes no damage.

This is a little known game in which your character must go through a long series of nonlinear levels, her only equipment being a grappling hook which requires great skill and timing to manipulate correctly. Because of the difficulty required to use the grappling hook(even with emulator tools), I believe that while it may become close, there will never be a truly perfect run, which makes it ideal for competition: the player must plan their own path through each level. I feel that my route is the fastest, and that I executed it close to perfectly.

Be it before or after, this game is definitely worth being downloaded so one might see how challenging it is despite its appearance. Hence the short game time, and large amount of rerecords.


Bisqwit: Amazing.
Does the author want to shrink the movie to minimum before it's published? There's about 12 seconds of idle at the end.
Bisqwit: Ok it's cool enough that I won't wait for answer :)
