  • Snes9x v1.43 v11 (beta6) used, but this run also syncs with the good ol' Snes9x v1.43 v9
  • Aims for fast time without taking damage
  • Manipulates luck etc
This movie is 4658 frames (77.63 seconds) faster than Pasky13's currently published movie. Most of the time has been gained due to optimized movement and different weapon usage, but about 600 frames are gained by ending input instantly after the final boss has been killed and letting the score screen disappear by itself.
I tend to rely on the Red blaster rather than the Blue one since it spreads its shots a whole lot more than the Blue one, which allows for earlier shooting against enemies high in the air.
I do stuff
Like roll into enemies without bouncing back? How is that done? Well as a ball, you can drop mines or missiles, and those tear enemies apart and that saves more time than jumping across each enemy.
NEW: I forgot to mention that one can actually carry more than 3 bombs, but only 3 are shown. 7E050A is the address for the bombs in case anybody is interested.
That's about all suspiciousness I can come up with that I do right now. I might get back if I figure something else out.
Also this run would be a tad faster with damage but not by much, I guess level 1 - 3 would be the one that would be improved the most by damage and/or death but meh.

Level improvements:
Level 1 - 1: 121 frames faster
Level 1 - 2: 257 frames faster
Level 1 - 3 & the first boss: 1090 frames faster
Level 2 - 1: 225 frames faster
Level 2 - 2: 61 frames faster
Level 2 - 3 & the second boss: 754 frames faster
Level 3 - 1: 325 frames faster
Level 3 - 2: 374 frames faster
Level 3 - 3: 24 frames faster
Level 4 - 1: 263 frames faster
Level 4 - 2: 2 frames faster
Level 4 - 3: 116 frames faster
Final boss: 1140 frames faster

Thanks to Pasky13 for the route which I stuck to, also thanks to adelikat and Deign for keeping this run a secret.
This story is happy ending etc.

NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. Here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.
Cardboard: Hello NVA! I like your screenshot number 8 a lot, so I flag that one as a suggested screenshot!

Truncated: This submission is happy accepted etc.
ccfreak2k: Processing...
