[TAS] [Obsoleted] NES Disney's The Little Mermaid by McBobX in 06:41.32
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3298M.html
This movie has been obsoleted by http://tasvideos.org/3870M.html. TAS originally published on 2016-12-29.
The Little Mermaid is a simple game based on the movie of the same name. You control the mermaid Ariel as she swims through several stages and beats up bosses by tossing fish encapsulated in bubbles.
Normally, shooting bubbles stops Ariel, so a speedrun would try to avoid all the enemies. However, the author manages to fire shots with little movement delay thanks to a glitch involving turning around. Luck manipulation is also used to beat the bosses quite quickly. For more details, see the submission comments.
In this run, McBobX, improves upon the previous version by 7 seconds.
