Tricks

(paraphrased from the TAS submission)

Movement: Gizmo always moves at 1.5 pixels per frame, no matter what direction. This means zig-zagging is just as fast as walking straight.

Stage finish boost: After finishing a stage, you can walk around while the music is still playing. The way Gizmo is facing when the music stops will give a 1 frame boost in that direction in the next stage.
