  • Takes damage for entertainment
I'm not sure how people will feel about this one. I think this game is absolutely goofy to the point that I enjoy watching it, but some may feel it's too simple to be entertaining. Optimizing it was not complicated. It was so not-complicated that in most cases, I was more focused on trying to make fun things happen than the frame counter.
Things that look inoptimal, but aren't:
  • Title screen - You really can't do anything until frame 2000 or so.
  • Level 3 - The water has some ridiculous hit-boxes going on. This may be improvable though.
  • Level 6 - The part where I sit there for a few seconds is due to the spikes lowering, and the uncontrollable jump height.
  • Level 7 - As each elevator stops, I must be near the middle, or the screen will not scroll.
To interest those of you reading into watching, let it be known that the following is in this run:
  • One (1) skateboarding clown

adelikat: This movie is just way too grue-vy for this site.

adelikat: Accepting for publication to the Vault

Brandon: Publication underway.

Brandon: Consistent emulator crashing + school starting back up = I can't handle this right now.
Ilari: Well, got some encodes here...
