Down to 12:03 - significant improvement Used FCEU
I take damage to save time. Played on 'normal' difficulty. Aims for fastest time.
Metal Storm is a fun little platformer where you can 'flip' gravity to get around.
There has been a lot of talk about doing a run on this game in 'expert' mode, but I still wonder if the slower pace in order to get through the game would really lend to a better movie to view. Perhaps, maybe I'll try it later.
A few improvements: 1) Used the fireball to get past the blocking robot, so I didn't have to pick up the armor in 1-2 2) Used the fireball to kill the bosses of stages 3, 4, and 5. 3) Used the fireball to get as many of the lasers in stage 5 as possible. This is where the bulk of the speed increase came from. 4) I used the 'P' powerup in stages 6 and 7 because of the boss for stage 6. The 'P' is the only reasonably fast way to kill him. 5) I killed a few more random enemies, just for the heck of it.
