Super Mario World is one of the most popular SNES games of all time. Its relevance in today's gaming culture cannot be understated. From its colorful graphics, to its smooth and satisfying controls, to its memorable soundtrack, and to its many MANY glitches.
Over the years, Super Mario World has had a wide range of exploits in order to do some crazy stuff. However, many of the glitches don't save any time in a speedrun. This TAS by IgorOliveira666 aims to showcase as many glitches and exploits in this game as possible, without worrying about speed. Some glitches are so intense that they crash the game, necessitating a restart of the console.
Acknowledged as one of the best Mario games of all time, Super Mario World is a must see for fans of classic games. This run completes the game fully (all 96 exits) and makes use of almost every known glitch to make it as fast and exciting as possible.
This TAS by bahamete, Kaizoman666 & Masterjun is an improvement of 06:43.97 minutes over the previous movie. The improvement comes from new glitches and better optimization.

This movie has a full Atlas Map encode, which shows the standard encode overlaid on a zoomed out map.
This is the 5th published movie in a category of impressively fast Super Mario World TASes. It beats the game by jumping to the credits from one of the two levels available from the start, Yoshi's Island 2. This happens because a glitch involving eating a Charging Chuck allows manipulating the code being executed by the game using only controller input.
This run is 00:00.13 seconds faster than the previous movie thanks to better movement and a more efficient payload. Reading the submission comments for more information is highly recommended.

This movie famously premiered via playback on a real Super Nintendo, at Awesome Games Done Quick 2014, as part of the first TASVideos presentation at a Games Done Quick event, which are hosted by SpeedDemosArchive.

This video has articles featured in reputable news sources:
Mario's doctor heard about the "Magic Mushrooms" which make Mario grow to twice his normal size and let him break bricks. Fearing for Mario's health, he orders Mario to avoid those nasty powerups.
This run aims to complete as many exits as possible without collecting any permanent powerups, including Mushrooms, Fire flowers, Feathers, Switch Palace blocks. Unable to fly, Mario is forced to confront most obstacles and overcome them in unique ways. Riding Yoshi is also banned. 86 out of the total 96 exits are completed.
In this run, the author, PangaeaPanga, saves 01:32.43 over the previous movie by using better paths, new tricks, and lag reduction. For a level by level analysis of the improvements, please see the author's notes.
