Deadly Towers is an annoying enough game to play, let alone make a TAS of, but the author manages a final time almost 3.5 minutes faster than the previous version. This improvement is mainly from buying orange scrolls, which are used to teleport from the top of each tower back down to the Holy Flame. Check the author's comments for more detailed information.

This game suffers from sprite overload very frequently.

A fast completion on Super Turrican ― a game that is said to be extremely difficult, and entirely produced by one man.

This movie improves the previous author's movie by 103 seconds ― a huge difference in this kind of fast-paced game. The boss fights especially were improved.

Note that this movie was played on the European version of the game, but it used NTSC timings. You may need to disable the PAL mode in the emulator manually if you watch the FCM.
Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
