A kangaroo has trained itself to master martial arts, it also knows a lot of international financial politics. It collects money and attempts to destabilize the market by never spending the money. The kangaroo is a big threat to humanity, so four heros have be chosen to stop it: A resurrected Tyrannosaurus Rex; The Yeti, they found him on an online dating website; The Djinn from a lamp oil bottle; And a hunter who loads mosquitos into his gun. This movie beats the previous submission by 7933 frames.

Comments

Horizontal movement

Walking
Regular walking speed is 640subpx/f, the character accelerates at a rate of 128subpx/f.
Running
By pressing U the character can move at 1024subpx/f. The character can move at 1024subpx/f in mid-air if U has been pressed prior to A.
Dropping speed from >640subpx/f to 640subpx/f
By releasing U when the character is running on ground the speed will drop immideately to 640subpx/f.
Deaccelerating on ground
The character lowers its speed at a rate of 128subpx/f. The effects of pressing opposite direction on d-pad or releasing d-pad input are the same.
Deaccelerating in mid-air
Releasing d-pad causes a speed drop of 32subpx/f, pressing opposite direction lowers it by 128subpx/f.
Keeping current speed
Pressing L+R keeps the current speed, it will drop to 640subpx/f if current speed is >640subpx/f and U is released. The side effect is that the character will face left and the camera is influenced by it.
Sliding downhill
On first frame speed drops to 0subpx/f, then then accelerates to 1408subpx/f from speed before starting sliding in a rate of 128subpx/f. Any directional input during sliding doesn't change speed. After sliding the speed drops to regular speed immideately.
Attacking
One frame of halt, on ground no movement during animation if it is a normal punch.
Damage boosts
Speed goes to 1408subpx/f. Damage boost can be extended by pressing L+R on specific frames.
Punch boosts
Delayed punch boosts, going throught punch animation, cause the speed to go up by 1280subpx/f. Hitting the terrain immideately causes the speed to go to 2176subpx/f. Speed accelerates at a rate of 128subpx/f if pressing direction of movement on d-pad, 160subpx/f if pressing nothing on d-pad, 256subpx/f if pressing opposite direction.
Wall clipping
When boosting the character can enter walls by pressing opposite direction before hitting the wall.

Vertical movement

Jumping
The A presses can be distributed until peak of jump, five presses total. On first frame speed goes to 1248subpx/f, then deaccelerates at 160subpx/f if A is not pressed. If A is pressed the acceleration depends on the current frame.
Punch boosts
They affect vertical speed on the frame hitting the terrain.

Attacks

Punch
Does one HP damage on bosses, except for last doing three HP damage. Shortest animation time.
Tailspin
Does one HP damage on bosses, except for last doing three HP damage. Longer animation time than punch.
Pounding
Does one HP damage on bosses, except for last doing three HP damage.
Glovethrow
Does two HP damage on bosses. The gloves can hit 1st and 2nd boss multiple times.
Cancelling attack animation
All attacks except pounding can be stopped by pausing or when standing still by moving camera with l.

Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting.

isnt there a faster way to kill the bosses instead of hitting them constantly like that? it seems like for a game like this there would be a different option to combat them.

Hitting them is the only way to do damage to the bosses. And the boss HP is always the same regardless of chosen difficulty.

It's funny how I can take one look at that screenshot, even though I hadn't heard of the game before, and immediately conclude "Titus". I've played lots of Prehistorik and it looks like the same artist(s) worked on this. I like their style and it looks like a solid run. Yes vote.

Very exciting TAS. It's clear you tried to max out the game, and the effort very much shines through. Glitchy, fast movement everywhere and a fast pace throughout. Overall, I really enjoyed watching this movie. Yes vote, natch.
