Emulator used: <FCEUX 2.1.4a>.
This is a mini game.
It has 72 rounds.
Difficult is normal.
My English is not good.
So not much messages.

DarkKobold: Judging

Darkkobold: This is a poor game choice all around, and doesn't offer much as far as TASing demonstration. Rejecting for game choice.

Noxxa: Judging in consideration for vault tier.
Noxxa: Rejecting for being significantly improvable, as shown in the discussion thread.

Redundant goal is redundant. Also requesting an encode.

Voting no, as I just TASed the first 3 levels and beat your run by 16 seconds. http://dehacked.2y.net/microstorage.php/info/1122346599/dug2.fm2 It's faster to kill yourself at the end of levels (If you have the life of course) to skip the victory music.

Now Dig Dug is a landscaper? ;-) This run is pretty boring. It reminds me of The New Ghostbusters II but has less variety. Also, as NitroGenesis just showed, the run could be a lot faster (even if you don't use death to save time). I'm voting No.
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically. Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.) Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html) Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature! Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:
Shoutouts and thanks to mklip2001 for arguably being the nicest and most supportive person on the forums.

Voting No due to the movie being suboptimal.

I can sense a bit of sarcasm in your post subject, and I'm voting NO just because of it.
I am old enough to know better, but not enough to do it.

Voting No since it can be done faster, and has been proven. This game reminds me of Dig Dug: Digging Strike.

Unfortunately I also have to vote No not only because of the known improvements but also because of potentially questionable game choice; if this game could be completed in less than 10 minutes it wouldn't be so bad but 30 minutes of virtually the same thing gets old after a while. Good luck on improvements, A.C. ******
TASBot charity event prep is in full swing over on the TASBot Discord server for SGDQ, MCH, ESA, MAGWest and more! I'm posting TAS content on YouTube.com/dwangoAC based on live streams from Twitch.tv/dwangoAC. If you can help defray charity event costs via Patreon.com/dwangoAC my kids and I would be very thankful.

Does this game have bonus lives? There is not any games that can skip the victory music like this. I only know Sonic 3 can.
Do the work.

X2poet, the current run of Bubsy does skip the end of level music and countdown a few times. The screenshot of the game, shows this happening. http://tasvideos.org/2751S.html
