Submission Comments
We made a 234 frames' improvement from soig's TAS mainly by full use of S weapon in level 4. We think hurting enemies but not killing them is allowed in pacifist rule.

Level by level comments:

Level 1
Get S for 1P and save 15 frames in the BOSS fight. BOSS fight here is 2 frames faster than any% run.
Level 2
S is not quite good in this level because it will cause many lags and will easily kill enemies, so it's 15 frames slower than soig's TAS.
Level 3
Controll the time when 2P dies to save time, get double S and faster BOSS fight, 36 frames saved.
Level 4
Make full use of S just as any% run did, 174 frames saved.
Level 5
Get a better enemy before the second tank, use L in BOSS fight for it's faster than normal gun. 16 frames saved.
Level 6
The same as soig's TAS.
Level 7
Due to the bad luck, we use more pauses in this level. 4 frames slower before BOSS fight. But we saved 4 frames in the BOSS fight. The time remains the same.
Level 8
Controll enemies let 1P do fewer jumps. 8 frames saved.

Masterjun: Judging! Again!
Masterjun: Replaced file with updated version.
Masterjun: Accepted to Moons as an improvement to the previous run.
feos: Pub.
