Main improvement points
  • BUG1.
In double mode,only two players are able to deal with BOSS,do double damage with one knife.
  • BUG2.
In double mode,the screen Y-axis speed will increase.
  • BUG3.
Use death to get to your destination faster.
Weakness of double mode
The delay is very serious. When there are many enemies, you need to give up moving acceleration to avoid the generation of lag.

Conclusion
Thanks to Xipo and Klmz, who are the two most contributing players in the game's fastest record.

arkiandruski: Claimed
arkiandruski:Alright, I believe this thread has reached a consensus now. While there are known improvements, there is no evidence that they will save a significant amount of time or be easy to implement, nor has anyone mentioned that they are actively working on or have any desire to make an improvement. Based on that, the movie is acceptable for publication.
While I asked about making a branch in the thread, after looking at the movie I don't think it differentiates itself enough from a single player movie, especially since a big strategy in the run is killing off one character when 2 players aren't needed to avoid lag.
People seem to enjoy the run and I have seen no negative feedback for entertainment. Accepting as an improvement to [3153] NES Shadow of the Ninja "1 player" by TASeditor in 09:30.41.
Zinfidel: Processing.
