Super Riff Bros. 3 is a Super Mario Bros. 3 hack created by Freakin HA, inspired by Kaizo hacks such as Kaizo Mario Bros. 3, Kamikaze Bros. 3, the Kaizo Mario World trilogy, etc.

This TAS races through the hack in less than 20 minutes in time to save Peach, only to find that she's a whiz at 1970s music.

Quoting Acmlm1:
SMB3 with speed hacks! Once again, Mario races through the game faster than Sonic could ever hope to, and doesn't have time to waste on the autoscrolling.
Superfast Mario Bros. 3 is a Super Mario Bros. 3 hack that includes speed hacks, letting Mario zip through the game in record time. Other speedy changes were made alongside that as well. The hack was actually created in 2008, after the first and second of its series. However, it wasn't until July 28, 2009 when a run of this hack was finally created.

This is a 0.38-second improvement to my old movie created almost eight years after the original run by Acmlm1 has been uploaded (to which I've also improved by 3 seconds). This was mostly due to a new strategy of killing Bowser quicker by getting on the right side of Bowser instead of the left. Because of that, this TAS is about 5.6 times faster than the current movie of the original game.

Here's where you can get the IPS patch.

And, one more thing: It's not possible to perform a warpless version of the game due to a number of issues being discovered by YouTuber Chris Akridge.

I ran my optimization script on LordTom, Mitjitsu, and Tompa's Super Mario Bros. 3 run. It removed about 1/3 of all inputs. However, it desyncs after two levels because enemies are on some spurious timer that isn't affected by frames but rather by the user's input.

I swear it's not a problem with the script! I just need to analyze the game's RAM more thoroughly!

Sorry, I deleted it accidentally just now... So I reupload it now.

Ps: I wish that my run can help the authors who are TASing this game(such as Lord Tom, Mitjitsu, etc.) beat existing record successfully!

Old description:

I improved a little. And this is an unfinished movie.

World 1, 2 frames faster.

World 2, in 2-pyramid, I improved about 4 frames.

In 3-hammer, Mario can kill upward hammer without fireball. But I didn't do that. Because I found that after this stage...

In 4-2, I got P-speed faster.

In 4-6, I've tried a lot of times to get a card earlier than star. But it failed. Due to 1 less x pixel...

I guess that in 8-ship 1, it can be faster. Like warped run - push Mario ahead to get into pipe earlier.

But I can't determine if this way is suitable in 8-tank 1. Because Mario can't fly like warped run...

Other improvement maybe appear:

Author should use corner boosting and ceiling boosting. Especially ceiling boosting!
