Sonic 1 Return to the Origin is a great hack of Sonic 1 by carretero. In this hack, you play through every level of sonic 1 from the end to the beginning (excepting final zone, which is played regularly). Naturally, this is a great change of pace for a sonic speedrunner, and a level system worthy of speedrunning. With that frame of mind, I set off to do my first ever tool assisted speedrun on this game. It is a work in progress, so expect better later.
A tool assisted speedrun is a speedrun which attempts to show a game pushed entirely to its limits. The game is played on a an emulator, with lowdown and savestates, until a perfect input is devised, beating the entire game as quickly as possible. This is my first ever tas, and is extremely unoptimized. As such, I plan on re-tasing the game at a later date, in the hopes of getting under 14 minutes. However, for a first tas, this is (in my opinion), fairly well done.

Points of Interest:
Green Hill 1 - when they start to get up and jump to the ramp go right on with great speed Green Hill 3 - At the springboard from which you push backward (osea forward as this version is the other way around) takes you down and you hit the jump button as fast.
Spring Yard 2 - if you're coming by passing a ramp where you jump and go fast
Labyrinth 3 - since you will start to lose quickly and thus is: First when you start grab 1 or 2 rings Finally when these invincible for a few seconds you quickly strips where the arrows are pointed staying quiet
Scrap Brain 1 & 2 - My Favorite stage
enjoy the run!
