[TAS] Genesis Twinkle Tale by Mitjitsu in 17:33.58
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/1167M.html. TAS originally published on 2008-08-11.
Twinkle Tale was released exclusively in Japan by an obscure publisher. The author describes it as "what you get when you combine top down Contra stages with Kingdom Hearts." It tells the tale of Saria the magician who must stop the Demon King with what sometimes appear to be weapons from Gradius.
This movie carefully exploits the game's mechanics to breeze through the levels and boss fights. You can read a full translation and get other information at its submission discussion (http://tasvideos.org/forum/viewtopic....)
