Full completion of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Both this run and the short version use a wobbling trick in order to make Link walk a bit faster. The execution of this maneuver requires the usage of a controller that allows the player to press Up+Down simultaneously (such as, in this case, a modified Snes9x's controller). The traveling-through-walls trick that is seen in the short version is not used.
This run features an improvement of a little over 4 minutes.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is the third game of its series. It began development in 1988 as a NES title but was ultimately moved to the SNES, being released in Japan on 21 November 1991, exactly 1 year after the console. It set new standards for the system and was among the first games to use 1MB of memory. The game is widely regarded as one of the best video games, both of its era and of all time. A Link to the Past spawned two official manga, a Satellaview spinoff, a GBA port, a 3DS remake, a popular randomizer, and rereleases on the SNES Classic and Wii Virtual Console. Nearly 30 years later, it remains one of the most popular speedrun games.

The second set of encodes feature a minimap at the right side, showing the player's position on the map and the camera's position.

The author provided video commentary for this movie that can be seen here.
SNES Zelda completed in a very quick manner. The trick that is used to cut completion time by so much is holding left+up+right while entering a corridor or staircase, allowing Link to clip through the wall and walk out of bounds.
This movie is an astonishing minute faster than the preceding version thanks to a brand new glitch.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
