Well, despite this table, are the amount of frames saved in the run. The names of the zones, I invented up myself, because did not have names in each part of the game, I think... And it's understandable ... Well everything says the table

Pause trick

I used this trick, for make this improvement.
I used this trick in the zone "Shooting" ... Which changes the color and location of the "colorful ducks" and that makes me improve this part
Also, thanks to this, I improved the intro and other parts of the game with this "Pause" technique in-game

Other comments

I don't see a possible improvement. Even if a very minimal, but since I improved the maTO's movie ... That's enough to keep improving this run

Thanks to

  • maTO: For your movie :)

Anyone knows why this game is SO dark?

This game sure cuts a lot out from the movie. Also, why is Buford shooting at Doc as he's trying to rescue Clara? To quote Doc from later in the movie: "Tannen...you're early." Anyway, nice fast run, Kiske. I'm voting Yes.

I found this quite boring to be honest. Entirely the game's fault, not yours.

Padding short games with difficulty, what's new? Funny how you're supposed to shoot ducks in the target practice mini-game but not in the following level. Brief but well-done. Yes vote.

Dear God... this was absolutely HORRENDOUS! [Game] Not only was this ridiculously boring [The Game], but the music was annoying. I mean I know Nintendo made some stinkers... but this is definitely one huge one for Sega. I did NOT find this entertaining, despite the author's best attempts. There is no vault this deserves to be in. One of the 9 hells of Dante's Inferno though? Most definitely. No Vote, if I wasn't obvious enough. Mr. Kelly R. Flewin

Remember that part in the movie where the train pushing the DeLorean had a bunch of stuff in the back of it, because that totally makes a train go faster?

I could swear I remember reading somewhere that there was some kind of programming error in the way the game handles the palette so, rather than having everything display as intended, it takes everything down one shade or so. I can't seem to find where I read that, though.

I remember I was trying some "Heavy glitch abuse", but did not find any that I know of!

I guess this is the first time in history that wobbling in a TAS has been used to raise awareness on Parkinson's disease.
