[TAS] [Obsoleted] SNES Super Metroid by Sniq in 37:39.1
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3362M.html
This movie has been obsoleted by http://tasvideos.org/3653M.html. TAS originally published on 2017-04-02.
Although a relative newcomer to TASVideos's player list, Sniq is an experienced TASer in regards to Super Metroid, this time in a mission to perfect one of the most contested games in the site's history.
This run beats both the real time and game time of the previous any% records by Taco & Kriole (http://tasvideos.org/1368M.html) (2009) and Saturn (http://tasvideos.org/1908M.html) (2011). The real time improvement is 58.70 (3,522 Frames @60 FPS) seconds whereas the game time improvement is 2 seconds, resulting in a real time of 37:39.1 and a game time of 22:36.
Sniq makes short work of Mother Brain and her space pirates, largely due to a major route change. Please read the author's submission notes (http://tasvideos.org/5403S.html) for more information.
