Submission Text Full Submission Page
This is a 4 frame improvement over my cancelled submission and is faster than the published run by 83 frames.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.1.5
  • Fastest time (or is it?)
  • Abuses glitches
  • Manipulates luck

Comments

Pretty much the entire run except stages 3 and 4 are the same as before. The improvements are all from stage 3. I could have saved 5 frames instead of 4 if not for those meddling bots and their pesky lag frame. =/

Other comments

Thanks

Does this 4 frame improvement over your previous version really need a new submission? That submission file was updated quite a few times... why not once more?

How did I miss the 1st boss dance last time?! Awesome job! And Yes.

Was your standard, good run up until the last level. Then it turned into an awesome run! Great work, and I loved the dancing. :) Also, for some reason the music and sound effects remind me of Blaster Master. I have a feeling some of them were stolen for this game.

I didn't know that the NES could do such a nice electric guitar. Anyway, great game, great run, of course it should be accepted. I really liked how you disrespected the physics engine in the autoscroller at the end.

It is a sampled bass guitar voiced through DPCM channel. The same goes to Gimmick, Batman ROTJ, Ufouria, Gremlins 2, Super Spy Hunter. Praise Naoki Kodaka!

I'm pretty sure you're aware they were both made by Sunsoft.

I kind of preferred the dancing in the first robot battle in the original run.
