  • Uses password to access bonus content
Battle Kid features a password system and has bonus levels that can be accessed from it. This movie aims to complete the bonus level associated with the password SGCLEVEL. It is in fact the exclusive to Version 1.1 of the game. The level is beaten with the onscreen timer stopping at 19:26.
Aglar had a take on this in 2011. There was no movie file uploaded back then, but the timer on the encode stops at 19:28. It was a surprise for me that my final time ends up being actually shorter... by 1 frame. There is a decent chance that at least one of the rooms is done slower in my movie, but it is hard to do a proper comparison based on video dumps alone so I believe this is the best I can provide at this point.

slamo: Claiming for judging.
slamo: Yeah, there's not really too much to this one, but the optimization looks fine and nobody has done it faster. It's an individual level but it's separate from the main game and this is the only way to play it. Accepting.
The full name for this level is the "ScrewAttack Gaming Convention level" - I'll leave it up to the publisher what to name the branch.

despoa: Processing...

It's a curiosity that this bonus level isn't in the V2.0 version ( Battle Kid - Fortress of Peril (2018 ver 2.000)(J)[!] ). It isn't really that long anyway but I have no clue why it was removed. Maybe it was too short? V2.0 also has some new bonus levels - are you doing any of them?

I actually have started working on LIFTLUNACY on Version 2.1 and probably will do THE33ZONES, which got a new boss fight on Version 2.1, afterwards. Version 2.1 is the XBOX One release, and the NES rom itself is available for purchase online too. https://www.reddit.com/r/nes/comments/u8t4ze/battle_kid_fortress_of_peril_nes_out_again_on/
