This TAS obsoletes the published movie by 305 frames.
Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.2
Aims for fastest time
Heavy glitch abuse
This game is a fairly simple platformer with warps and bugs that can be used for a swift completion time. Most of the savings come from improved glitching and tighter play, and better luck manipulation (getting enemies to fire projectiles to break the clouds you can ride). The most visible improvements are in 5-2 where the glitch is used to skip having to wait for the lava to fall down at the start of the level and in 5-3 where flapping is used at around the 6650 frame mark instead of using a cloud to ascend quicker.
Thanks to Max12187566 and J.Y. for their published movie. Also thanks to mklip2001 for suggesting grooving to the music instead of wobbling in the thread for the previous run.

Nice going. The cloud rides look especially smoothly manipulated.
Thanks for probably the oddest bit of credit I've ever gotten :-) From watching the encode, it seems like the dancing is a little offsync with the music (your moves happen a little bit too late), but I appreciate the gesture!
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:
